Codenamed ‘Passport’, the Google Pixel Folding phone is expected to sport a 7.6-inch screen size, similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.The report also claims that the devices will come with Samsung OLED displays. There is also the possibility that Google could go for the more conventional two-panel design that Microsoft debuted with its Surface Duo. It can also opt for scrollable display seen on the upcoming LG Rollable.
Also, since Google has started taking a mid-range route for its smartphones recently, there is a good possibility that the foldable Pixel phone would also come with mid-range specs.
Google Foldable Price
Google has not released any official statement about launching a foldable phone. Google said last year that it is thinking about foldable phones. Mario Queiroz, the former Google executive responsible for managing company’s Pixel division, told Business Insider in May 2019, “Just folding your phone, that’s interesting, and turning it into a tablet, there’s some incremental benefit to it, but it’s not like that breakthrough thing where you say, ‘Wow this is something that’s very different.”
While we are still not sure about the Google Foldable price, we are pretty sure it would not be cheap. all of the foldable devices released so far have been priced over a $1000. Keeping this in mind, we expect new Google Pixel folding phone to be priced over $1000.
