New renders and design details of the long-rumored Google Pixel Fold have surfaced online, including display and overall dimensions, as well as an expected launch date next spring.

According to well-known leaker OnLeaks, the Google Pixel Fold will have a form factor similar to the Oppo Find N, with a 5.79-inch outer screen on the front, a punch hole for the camera above the middle, a 7.69-inch foldable inner screen, and a right-aligned The selfie camera cutout is embedded in a slightly thicker bezel.

Samsung-made OLED panels are said to use an ultra-thin glass (UTG) cover plate, which is also provided by Samsung.

It is said that the size of the display screen is housed in a round-edged case, which is about 158.7×139.7×5.7mm after unfolding, which is slightly wider than OPPO Find N and about the same height, and the thickness of the camera module protrusion is 8.3mm.

The camera bump on the back of the screen is reminiscent of Google's latest Pixel phones , a triple-lens strip that houses the flash and microphone, while the SIM card tray sits on the bottom edge of the outer screen.

The USB-C port is directly opposite when folded. The volume buttons sit on the right edge, next to the power button equipped with a fingerprint scanner.

Previous rumors have suggested that the Pixel Fold will be powered by Google's Tensor G2 chip processor, paired with at least 12GB of RAM. It is likely to run Android 13 system.

The starting price is expected to be $1,799, and the device will be available in black and silver when it goes on sale in May 2023.

Google's foldable has been rumored for a long time. Leaked documents in 2020 suggested that Google planned to release a foldable smartphone by the end of 2021, but that didn't happen.

At its recent I/O developer conference, Google didn't even mention the foldable device, leaving some Pixel fans wondering if development on the device had been cancelled.

In 2019, when Google revealed it was developing technology that could be used in foldable devices, it admitted in the same sentence that it didn't see "a clear use case."

However, a lack of software innovation or a new chip that Google wants to incorporate is likely to hold back the development of the device, said Ross Young, an analyst at Display Supply Chain Consulting (DSCC).

Meanwhile, Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold and Flip devices have entered this nascent market, and Google is playing catch-up. But whether Apple is following suit in this space is less clear.

According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the company's long-rumored foldable iPhone is unlikely to launch in 2025 or later. Apple's first foldable device could even be an iPhone and iPad hybrid, or just a foldable iPad.
