Google Pixel Fold release date window prediction: When will the Google Pixel Fold release?

The Google Pixel Fold is going to have a completely different form factor and design generally, so it is difficult to pinpoint the exact release window of the device as it’s a completely new line of products.

A report suggested that the Google foldable device would arrive in early 2022, which didn’t happen. There was buzz about the Pixel Fold around this due to the animation spotted in the Android 12L Beta 2 (released in January 2022) that showed how to insert a SIM card into a foldable device when open and closed. Google’s trademark logo was spotted. For whatever reason nothing has yet materialised.

However, there’s another date. It is possible the Google Pixel Fold release date could land in May 2023, and this is coming from the Front Page Tech. According to The Elec the original release date was planned for Q4 2022 but it has been delayed until sometime in 2023.

So, currently we expect the Google Pixel Fold release date to land sometime in Q2 2023, but this is a very loose estimate.
