Google Pixel Fold 2 hands-on image revealed

Yesterday, news broke that the forthcoming Google Pixel Fold 2 could potentially forgo the use of the Tensor G3 chipset found in the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. Instead opt for the more advanced Tensor G4 in the Pixel 9 and 9 Pro.

This suggests that the Pixel Fold 2 hands-on might only be unveiled alongside these devices in October, rather than in May like the original Pixel Fold.

Today, an image claiming to be a prototype of the Pixel Fold 2 hands-on has been leaked by the same source responsible for yesterday’s report. Take a look at the image below, showcasing its sleek and covert design.

There are two clear differences that can be immediately observed in this model. Firstly, the design of the camera bump has undergone a significant change, deviating from the original Pixel Fold’s visor-like design.

This is interesting because the elongated camera island, which covers most, if not all, of the back, has become a defining feature of the Pixel line.

Moving on, the cover screen of the Pixel Fold 2 is noticeably longer and narrower compared to its predecessor, which had a wider form factor.

In fact, when opened, the previous model would display apps in landscape mode, causing issues for those who preferred a different orientation. The Pixel Fold 2 seems to address this problem by being slightly longer than its width when unfolded, ensuring that apps default to portrait orientation.

Although the inner screen is not visible, the source of this image claims that it has a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera in the top right corner, unlike the original Pixel Fold which had it in the bezel. The Pixel Fold 2 is rumored to be “fairly thin,” but it still shows a noticeable display crease.

Naturally, it is important to approach this leaked image with skepticism as it represents only one perspective. If the Pixel Fold 2 does indeed debut in October, there will be plenty of time to gather more information about it until then.
