Google Pixel Fold: Sneak Peek at Design and Features Ahead of Google I/O via YouTube Ad

Google has finally lifted the curtains on its much-anticipated foldable phone, Pixel Fold, during the Google I/O event on Tuesday. This comes after an unlisted video was uploaded to YouTube, showcasing the design of the Pixel Fold as well as its features, including some that are unique to foldable phones. The Pixel Fold is the first foldable phone from the tech giant.

The Design

The design of the Pixel Fold, which is made of glass and metal, is showcased in the video from different angles – open to 90 degrees, completely open, and folded in half. The inner 7.6-inch foldable OLED display and the outer 5.8-inch OLED display with thick bezels are clearly visible in the video. Additionally, the unlisted video also reveals the phone’s colour options.


Google is touting some new foldable-focused software capabilities of the Pixel Fold. The phone is capable of automatically switching video sources when you unfold it. For instance, you can watch a video on the outer display, and when you open the phone, the video seamlessly switches to the inner display. The video also shows a user unfolding the Pixel Fold to use the rear camera to click a selfie while checking the preview on the cover display.

The Pixel Fold also includes features that are found on Pixel phones, such as the Magic Eraser tool. The video shows National Basketball Association (NBA) stars using the Pixel Fold to capture pictures and videos using the Pixel phones’ camera features.

Specs & Expected Features

The Pixel Fold is expected to be powered by a Tensor G2 SoC, which is also found on the company’s Pixel 7 series of phones. It is also rumoured to sport a 120Hz, 5.8-inch OLED outer display as well as a 120Hz, 7.6-inch OLED inner foldable screen with a resolution of 1,840 x 2,208 pixels. According to the latest leaks, the Pixel Fold is tipped to feature a 48-megapixel primary rear camera, a 10.8-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera, as well as a 10.8-megapixel telephoto camera. It is also said to come equipped with a 9.5-megapixel sensor for selfies and video chats, while the inner display could feature an 8-megapixel sensor. It is, however, important to note that the specs are subject to change as Google has not confirmed them officially yet.


The Pixel Fold is a significant addition to the smartphone market and has been hotly anticipated since rumours first emerged about it months ago. With foldable phones slowly growing in popularity, the Pixel Fold is definitely one to watch for those looking for a high-end foldable smartphone. The true test of the phone’s success will be in how it handles its folding mechanisms and how useful the foldable display becomes in day-to-day use. The phone is expected to hit the shelves soon, with Pixel fans eagerly awaiting its arrival.
