Google admits previous folding machine not good enough, won't be released

【PhoneAuto News】On May 31st, according to foreign media reports, Google’s Ivy Ross (Vice President of Hardware Design), Isabellele Olsson (Senior Designer), and Claude Zellweger (Design Director) discussed the Pixel Fold in Google’s podcast.

Ivy Ross said the team waited until they had a “good enough” product to release. He said he was proud of his team because Google made a new foldable model, but it wasn’t good enough at the time. “Our current Pixel Fold is Felix (lucky), to be honest, it looks good when folded. But I think many people may be afraid to try the first generation of Pixel foldable screen devices.”

It is understood that Google launched its first foldable screen product, Pixel Fold, in mid-May. Currently, the machine has officially launched in the US, UK, Germany, and Japan markets, with a price of $1,799, which is equivalent to about 12,500 yuan. This is basically the level of the just-rising foldable machines.

The external screen of the Pixel Fold is 5.8 inches, supports a refresh rate of 120Hz, and the internal screen is 7.6 inches; it is equipped with Google’s self-developed Tensor G2 chip; a main camera with 48 million pixels and two auxiliary cameras with 10.8 million pixels each are mounted on the back, and a front-facing camera with 9.5 million pixels and 8 million pixels are respectively equipped on the internal and external screens; it has a built-in 4,821mAh battery and supports both wired and wireless charging.

In addition, if the already-launched Pixel Fold performs well, Google may update this product line in 2025.
