The Pixel Fold, code-named “Pipit”, recently appeared in the GeekBench benchmark library. The benchmark content shows that the machine uses an octa-core processor with a base clock of 1.8GHz and a peak clock of 2.8GHz, and the GPU uses Mali G78. Based on these specifications, it is speculated that the chipset is the Tensor that was previously equipped on the Google Pixel 6 series.
The SoC has two cores clocked at 2.8GHz and two cores clocked at 2.25GHz, in addition to four efficiency cores clocked at 1.8GHz. The listing further reveals that Google’s foldable phone has 12GB of memory under the body. It is expected that this foldable phone will be equipped with 256GB or 512GB of internal storage space, and Android 12 system. Since Google has previously announced that it will roll out Android 12L for large-screen devices or foldable phones, it is expected that the “Pipit” will have the same function.
Previous reports have pointed out that the Google Pixel Fold plan may have been canceled because the company believes that the market for folding phones is fiercely competitive, and rivals such as Samsung have certain economies of scale, which may lead to even greater costs for Google.
Google Pixel Fold Specs
In terms of hardware specifications of the Pixel Fold, the previous prediction was that the screen size is the same as that of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. Both use an LTPO folding screen, which can reach 7.6 inches when unfolded and support a 120Hz screen update rate, but it will not have an under-screen lens. However, the Pixel Fold’s lens module technology may not be the most advanced, even lower than the lenses on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, and will still use the same IMX363 sensor as the Pixel 3.
Still, it looks like Google is still planning to build this phone. No official word yet, let’s wait for more details in the coming days.
