Exploring the Wonders of Google Pixel Fold 2 in 2024

By ANAS KHAN 9 Min Read

Google Pixel Fold 2: Google is expected to release the Pixel Fold 2 this spring, which is expected to have several enhancements compared to the first Pixel Fold. The first Pixel Fold was a remarkable foldable with a large front screen, excellent cameras, and simple multitasking capabilities. The Pixel Fold was still able to secure a spot in our list of the top foldable phones, despite a few issues such as heavy bezels and the fact that not all applications support full-screen mode.

However, with the impending release of the Galaxy Z Fold 6, the OnePlus Open, and other foldables, Google is under intense pressure to innovate with the Pixel Fold 2. Rumor has it that the Pixel Fold 2 will be considerably thinner and more streamlined than its predecessor, with a smaller camera bump and maybe an upgraded Tensor G4 processor. All the information we have on the Google Pixel Fold 2 is presented here.

Google Pixel Fold 2 Release Date & Price

Even though we don’t have any official word on when the Pixel Fold 2 will be available, we can safely assume that Google will unveil its second folding phone before the year comes to a close. If last year’s pattern holds, we should expect Google to introduce the phone at May’s Google I/O 2024 and have it ready for distribution somewhere in the summer. Yet, it’s possible that won’t follow.

According to Android Authority, there is talk that the Pixel Fold 2’s release date could be different from the one of its predecessor. It seems that the phone’s Engineering Validation Test (EVT) didn’t begin until early 2024, meaning it probably won’t be ready for release right after Google I/O. But it doesn’t rule out the phone’s arrival later this year, either.

Similarly, we do not yet have any price information. Considering the present pattern of smartphone price hikes, we would not count out the possibility that the Pixel Fold 2 would cost less than the Pixel Fold, which starts at $1,799, unless we hear otherwise.

Google Pixel Fold 2 Performance

Rumor has said that the Pixel Fold 2 may get a significant performance boost. Android Authority reports that the phone’s processor could be the Tensor G4, rather than the Tensor G3. Despite Tensor processors’ lackluster reputation in benchmarks, reports have circulated that Samsung’s Exynos 2400, which is used by the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Plus in countries other than the US, might be the basis for the G4 chip.

Even if Exynos processors won’t be able to touch the Snapdragon chips used by other Android flagships, they may provide the Pixel Fold 2 (and Pixel 9) a serious performance boost. Also, the artificial intelligence capabilities should be better than the Pixel 8 series from last year.

Nevertheless, the efficiency of such processing power could be contingent upon the release date of the Pixel Fold 2. It would be a huge boost if it happened before the year ends. If we are delayed until mid-to-late 2025, the impact will be diminished.

Some have speculated that the Pixel Fold 2 would have 16 GB of RAM, which is 4 GB more than the Pixel Fold, and an update to UFS 4.0 storage, which provides better power efficiency and higher read/write rates.

Google Pixel Fold 2 Display & Design 

According to a design leak, the Pixel Fold 2 could have a somewhat different appearance from its predecessor. We were hoping for a broader cover display, like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, but it seems like Google is cutting corners.

Rumor has it that the internal screen will take a cue from the OnePlus Open and have a square aspect ratio. Both of these updates could be reactions to people saying the Pixel Fold had too few optimized applications, which caused the black bars. According to Android Authority’s sources, it would also result in a smaller design, which bodes well for portability.

A major redesign of the Pixel Fold 2’s rear end may be in the works, according to leaked photos. Maybe the Fold 2’s camera will be located in the upper right corner of the device, rather than the horizontal bar that has been there since the Pixel 6. Four lenses, arranged in pairs, are visible in the picture.

Google Pixel Fold 2 Charging & Battery 

The Pixel Fold 2’s battery specifications are still unknown. Our battery tests showed that the Pixel Fold’s 4,821 mAh battery lasted for 10 hours and 21 minutes, so we’d be surprised if it didn’t. A more efficient processor, or at least a larger battery pack, would provide the desired endurance.

While it would be great if the Pixel Fold 2 could support the new Qi2 wireless charging standard, we are not surprised to see at least 30W cable charging and Qi wireless charging make a return.

Google Pixel Fold 2 Cameras

A Pixel Fold 2 with a fourth camera lens has surfaced in design leaks, albeit the quality isn’t great. There seems to be only one lens, however, and it has the classic square form factor of a telephoto lens. If this picture is any indication, the Pixel Fold 2 probably won’t include a secondary telephoto camera like the Galaxy S24 Ultra.

Comparing the Pixel Fold 2 to its predecessor, which included a 48MP primary lens, a 10.8MP ultrawide, and a 10.8MP telephoto with 5x optical zoom, we are unsure of the alterations that will be implemented. Any improvement to the last two, such as a higher resolution, a bigger sensor, or longer telescopic magnification, would be very appreciated.

Google will undoubtedly invest much in improving its AI cameras, regardless of the outcome. In terms of both capturing higher-quality images initially and providing more robust post-shot editing options.


The Pixel Fold 2, which will be released by Google, will have a slimmer design, a better CPU, and a better positioning of the camera, among other improvements. Rumor has it that a Tensor G4 CPU and more RAM would lead to improved performance, but neither the price nor the release date are known just yet. Changes to the design and display might be in the works for improved optimization, but information on the battery and charging is still scarce. Anticipated camera updates will focus on enhancing AI capabilities and picture quality.


Is Google Pixel 2 discontinued?

The scheduled end-of-life date for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL was in October 2020. In December 2020, it delivered its last security update. Both are anticipated to be supported by LineageOS by the end of 2023.

How big is the Google pixel fold?

When you open the Pixel Fold vertically, the 5.8-inch (146.7 mm) screen slides out to expose the 7.6-inch (192.3 mm) screen. It debuted as the market’s thinnest foldable smartphone and the shortest and widest Pixel phone.
