The folding screen smartphones market is growing rapidly. So that’s logical to know that almost all smartphone makers are working on their own models. So Google is doing as well. In fact, we’ve been waiting for the first Pixel Fold smartphone since a year ago. It had to go on sale in select markets, including the US. Now, there are various rumors suggesting that the handset will hit the stores in the second half of this year. If so, the leaks we’ve got today could be quite accurate. Moreover, they come our way from display analyst Ross Young.
Z Fold 4 and Google foldable will have similar sized foldable displays, but the Google cover display will be quite a bit smaller at 5.8". This should mean it will have a wider aspect ratio than the Samsung 6.19" Fold 4. Hear more at our conference next week.

He claims that the Google Pixel Fold will sport a smaller cover display than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. It will sport a 6.19-inch outer screen. But when it comes to the foldable display, both models will feature identically-sized screens.

As you understand, there is no official confirmation and we are dealing with a piece of rumors. Anyway, if believing Young, the Google Pixel Fold smartphone should come with an 8-inch foldable display. The screen on the other side will be much smaller, downsized to 5.8 inches. By the way, this is the same as that of the Oppo Find N. As said above, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will have a 6.19-inch outer display. Other than that, the Google foldable smartphone will boast a wider aspect ratio compared to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4.
Prior to this, we learned that the Google Pixel Fold will come with a dual-camera setup on the back. The latter will include a 12.2MP Sony IMX363 primary sensor and a 12MP IMX386 ultrawide lens. On the opposite side, there will be 8MP sensors for selfies and video calls. One of these lenses will be on the foldable screen and the other on the outer display.
Like the recently-released Pixel phones, the Google Pixel Fold will sport the company’s self-made Tensor series chip. But for the time being, we have no information on which model it will come with.
