Expectations for the Google Pixel Fold 2 are high because the original Google Pixel Fold was among the finest foldable phones of 2023. Judging from the initial image leak, it appears Google is significantly altering its folding formula.
The image, which was shared by an unidentified source to Android Authority, only appears to show the rear of a purported Pixel Fold 2. Some aspects are blurry, but there are still a lot of information visible. Read Also: The Best VPN Service in 2024
One difference between the device pictured here and the original Pixel Fold appears to be its smaller cover screen, which results in a squarer-shaped interior display. As a result, there is now less space for cameras across the breadth of the back, replacing the long single-row block on the original Pixel Fold with a more traditional square camera block with two lenses at the top and two below.
But while the original Pixel Fold only had three rear cameras, it also looks like there is an additional lens here. Although the nature of these lenses is unknown, the first phone suggests that we have a telephoto, ultra-wide, and main (wide) lens in addition to an unidentified fourth sensor.
This might be a second telephoto lens or a dedicated macro lens, but it could also be the Pixel 8 Pro’s temperature sensor, depth sensor, or any number of other sensors.
Not much more can be said about the picture itself, although the source asserts that the Pixel Fold 2’s frame feels more upscale despite most likely still being constructed of metal, just like the previous model. Read also: The Top 5 Tricks and Advice for the Samsung Galaxy S24
Additionally, they state that despite the phone’s thinness, there is a discernible seam down the middle of its foldable display. More intriguingly, they claim that the foldable display’s upper right cutout houses the internal camera. In contrast, the 8MP internal front-facing camera of the original Pixel Fold was located inside the top bezel.
Given that our primary complaint with the original phone was its huge bezel, it is likely the case that the top bezel is thinner here, which would be preferable.
But we would proceed cautiously with this concept. Even if this leak is authentic, there’s no certainty as it seems to be an early, unfinished prototype based on the picture.
Given that another recent leak (from the same source) indicated that the Pixel Fold 2 would launch at roughly the same time as the Google Pixel 9, it is possible that it will not be released until October 2024. As a result, it is possible that it will change before launch.
