Google – Alphabet Inc Class A (NASDAQ:GOOGL) – is likely to launch its Google Pixel Fold this fall, according to tech gossip. The model could be a foldable version of the upcoming Pixel 6.
At the 2021 SALT New York conference, which was held earlier this week, one of the panels on the main stage discussed the best macro shifts coming out of the pandemic and investing in value amid distress.

Google Pixel Fold
The folding mobile segment is going through an energetic period as rumors spread about Google’s foldable model. The phone –whose launch is anticipated this year as early as fall– would join the likes of Xiaomi Corp (OTCMKTS:XIACF) and Motorola Solutions Inc (NYSE:MSI).
As matters develop and information about the Google Pixel Fold leaks, the company’s first folding phone could become the great showcase of Android 12, the new version of the operating system that is touted as one of the most revolutionary in recent years.
The reality is that the beta codes of Android 12 –Oriole, Raven, Passport, and Slider– have revealed the existence of such a phone. The first two are known to be the new Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro that are lined up for launch this fall, while the Passport is actually the long-anticipated folding model.
The Google Pixel Fold could make use of the Tensor chipset of its Pixel 6 brothers. According to TechRadar, “This chipset is designed to speed up AI and machine learning processes, which could benefit the cameras, speech recognition, and more.”
“It also has the most layers of hardware security in any phone.”
Should the Pixel Fold sport this chipset, “there’s a good chance it could have the same cameras as the Pixel 6 or the Pixel 6 Pro as well, given that this chipset is tuned to make the most of those snappers.”
Folding technology is not cheap, but the Google Pixel usually comes out at a better price than other high-end devices, bearing in mind that it is not as equipped as its rivals.
In terms of design, there is news coming from several sources that Google has ordered 7.6-inch OLED screens from Samsung.
It would be the same size as the screen of the Z Fold 2, so the Pixel Fold could be opened in the same way, as having a book in hand, to reveal the Tablet-style screen so typical of these models.
