Google smartphone with foldable screen postponed again. This would not happen again until next spring.
Rumors have been going around for a long time now of the existence of a Google Pixel with folding screen. Unfortunately, it seems that we are still very far from seeing this smartphone arrive in our hands. Indeed, this one has just been postponed again, not before next spring now.
Google smartphone with foldable screen postponed again
Rumors of a Google smartphone with a Samsung Galaxy Z foldable screen have existed since the beginning of 2021, but The Elec reports that the American giant has decided not to formalize the device during the last quarter of 2022, preferring to do so in the spring of 2023. According to the medium, this decision was made simply because the phone is not finished. This all coincides with rumors from late last year that the Mountain View firm had chosen to start almost from scratch. Ross Young, always very well informed, corroborated the information of The Elec: “Several supply chain sources indicate that the launch of the foldable smartphone from Google is postponed until next spring.”
This is not the first time that this device has been postponed, much to the chagrin of Google fans who have been waiting for such a smartphone. The first rumors of a postponement date from the fall of 2021, Ross Young indicated that Google would not launch its device on the market before the second quarter of 2022 at the earliest.
This one wouldn’t arrive until next spring.
And since this foldable screen smartphone has still not been formalized, we have to settle for rumors. The device remains a complete mystery. It was not mentioned at all during the Google I/O a few weeks ago, but if we are to believe The Elec, the screen would be provided by Samsung and would offer a diagonal of 7.57 inches, with a 5.78-inch secondary screen. The Nexplus company would be in charge of the hinge of the device. Previous leaks showed two versions: the “Jumbojack” with a horizontal fold, and the “Passport”, which folds vertically”, like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip.
At this point, Google’s foldable screen smartphone is still just a sweet dream. Hopefully we’ll find out more next spring. To be continued !
