Google confirms they had a second foldable phone in the works


At I/O earlier this month, Google finally took the wraps off its Pixel Fold, its foldable phone which we have been hearing about for a while now. But as it turns out, had things been a bit different, we might have seen not one, but two foldable phones from Google.

This was confirmed during the official Made By Google podcast in which head of design of hardware products, Ivy Ross, revealed that Google was working on another foldable model but ultimately decided not to go ahead with it. According to Ross:

“I’m really proud of the team because there was another foldable model that we had created, that we had the discipline to hold back and say ‘nope, it’s not good enough yet,’ and really wait until we felt like we could do something that was good enough or better than what was out there already.”

It is unclear what the second model could have been, but it is being speculated that it could have been a flip style phone, similar to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip series. That being said, it’s interesting that Google actually revealed this since companies like Google don’t usually explicitly say what they are or have been working on.

This doesn’t mean that a Pixel Flip isn’t entirely out of the question. It is possible that Google is still working on it and getting it up to their standards before releasing it, but we suppose until we hear otherwise, it’s probably best not to get your hopes up for now.
