Google is reportedly working on a new Pixel foldable phone that could be released next year. The first renders have been published by Front Page Tech yesterday, and they show a device that could possibly represent a new milestone in Google’s smartphone design efforts.

Over the years, Pixel phones received a lot of praise for picture quality, though they never really manage to impress on the design front. However, this upcoming Pixel foldable phone could be a different story.

The renders show a premium-looking device that uses metal and glass. There’s also a pretty big camera bar on the back, similar to what you can see on Microsoft’s Surface Duo 2.

On the outside, the display has a hole punch camera which is said to be 9.5MP. On the inside, the two displays have pretty big bezels at the top and the bottom, and the front-facing camera (also said to be 9.5MP) is hidden there in the top right corner.

You can also see two antenna lines at the top and the sides of the device. The power button, which is also on the side of the foldable device is said to integrate a fingerprint sensor.

Google’s foldable Pixel phone is reportedly codenamed “Passport” internally. It’s expected to be available in two colors, Chalk (white) and Obsidian (black).

According to FPT, Google plans to release its “Pixel Fold” in May 2023 alongside its new Pixel tablet. The company is also expected to price its first foldable Pixel phone at $1,799, which would be significantly more expensive than the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro starting at $599.
