After years of waiting, the Pixel Fold could arrive sooner than we envisioned. A new report suggests the foldable Android handset could arrive in June.
According to WinFuture‘s reliable tipster Roland Quandt, the phone will be launched alongside the Pixel 7a in June this year.
Pixel 7 with 100GB of data for £22 a month
Google’s flagship is available over 24 months for less than you’d pay to buy the phone outright. This deal isn’t to be missed.

The tipster says it will indeed be called the Pixel Fold and will have a 256GB base storage variant with ‘carbon’ and ‘porcelain’ colour options. According to the report, it may have a rather large price tag of 1,700 euros (around £1,500). The report also says that pricing information isn’t necessarily reliable, so you shouldn’t get too scared.
The report comes following a leaked retail listing that also suggested the Pixel Fold and Pixel 7a would arrive in June. Those listings have reportedly been seen by 9to5Google.
If the phone is to ship in June, we may see it and the Pixel 7a previewed at Google I/O on May 10, but it’s possible the company will hold off with a standalone release for such a high profile phone.
It is thought the Pixel Fold will use the Google Tensor G2 processors which were introduced with the current flagship Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro phones last autumn. If that’s the case, those processors are likely to be usurped with a Gen 3 processor when the Pixel 8 series arrives in around October.
Previous reports have also suggested the Pixel Fold will have a 7.69-inch tablet-like inner screen with a 5.79-inch cover screen.
Interestingly, today’s WinFuture report also tips a 500 euro Pixel 7a that’ll arrive in a pretty shade of “Jade”. Earlier today, we saw the purported leak of Pixel 7a specs with hands-on pictures.
