Phone gets decent screen and price tag

The phone will have a 7.6-inch screen, which is the same size as the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. The Pixel Fold is also water resistant and lasts no less than 24 hours. Exactly what tasks you can do with the phone in those 24 hours is still unclear. In any case, it is to be expected that the Pixel Fold will not last 24 hours if you perform heavier tasks such as watching movies and series.

Are you planning to buy the Pixel Fold? You then have to put down quite a bit of money, because the phone will have a starting price of no less than $ 1700. Samsung’s foldable devices are about the same price. The price of the device will probably be slightly higher in the Netherlands. It is not yet known whether (and when) the Pixel Fold will also come to the Netherlands.

Apple is also working on a foldable screen

Google is therefore probably ahead of Apple in launching a foldable phone. The rumors about a foldable iPhone, iPad or even MacBook have been going on for years. For example, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects Apple’s foldable device to appear next year, but this is anything but certain. Ross Young, expert on displays, has just said that the device will not arrive until 2026 or 2027.
