Alleged Google Pixel Fold 2 in Development, Features Tensor G4 and 16GB RAM

Last year, Google announced its entry into the foldable phone market with the Google Pixel Fold. Now, rumors suggest that the brand is preparing to unveil its successor, the Pixel Fold 2. A recent report by Android Authority has provided some insights into the key specifications of the upcoming device, as well as its expected launch timeframe.

Google Pixel Fold 2 Key Specifications (Rumored)

According to an anonymous source mentioned in the report, Google has been conducting internal tests on the Pixel Fold 2 for the past few months. It has been discovered that the prototype units of the Pixel Fold 2 are powered by a chipset codenamed "zumapro." This is interesting because the previous Pixel 8 series was powered by the Tensor G3 chip, which had the codename "zuma." This suggests that the zumapro chip could be the next-generation Tensor G4 chip for the Pixel Fold 2. It's worth noting that the original Pixel Fold 2 featured the Tensor G2 chip.

The Tensor G4 chip is expected to be manufactured by Samsung and will likely come equipped with ARM Cortex-X4, A720, and A520 CPU cores. In terms of memory and storage, the Pixel Fold 2 is rumored to have 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of UFS 4.0 storage. This is a significant upgrade compared to the original Pixel Fold, which had 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Additionally, there are speculations that the Pixel Fold 2 may also feature the rumored Pixel AI assistant.

Google Pixel Fold 2 Launch Timeframe (Rumored)

According to the report, the Pixel Fold 2 is currently in the Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage. This suggests that it may still be several months away from entering mass production. Google is expected to unveil the Pixel 9 and 9 Pro in October this year, both featuring the Tensor G4 chip. With the Pixel Fold 2 also rumored to have the same chip, there is a possibility that it may be launched alongside the Pixel 9 series.
