Google Pixel Fold development reportedly ‘put on hold’ due to major issues with device

The Google Pixel 6 series was just launched, and it includes the company’s Tensor SoC, a new design, the latest version of Android, and more. We later discovered that Google was working on Android 12L, which we were able to get our hands on ahead of its public release.

DisplaySupply’s bad news for those hoping for the Google Pixel Fold. We’re hearing that they’ve canceled orders and decided not to release it as previously stated in this week’s DSCC Weekly Review. See blog excerpt at https://t.co/EVmWKcgi2c.

According to the Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), Google will not be releasing the Pixel Fold. According to Young, Google felt that the device wouldn’t be as competitive as it needed to be in order for it to succeed.

The Pixel Fold was supposed to be about the same size as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, with a 120Hz LTPO internal display. It wasn’t expected to have an under-display camera, but its camera system was designed to match that of the Pixel 5 series rather than the Pixel 6 series.

Several leakers had previously suggested that the Pixel Fold would be released this year.
