A new information about the first Google‘s smartphone with a flexible display has been spotted in the code of the new version of the Google Camera application by the folks at 9to5Google. The device is currently referred to as the Google Pixel Fold 5G.
The device is expected to come in a book format. It will receive a flexible inner screen and an auxiliary display in the outer part of the case. Several cameras will be installed: it was about them that we managed to extract information from the application code.
According to the available data, in terms of sensors used, the Google Pixel Fold 5G will be inferior to the Google Pixel 6 Pro (shown in the image). In particular, the main camera will include a 12.2-megapixel Sony IMX363 sensor. For comparison, the Google Pixel 6 Pro has a 50-megapixel Samsung GN1.
Furthermore, the camera of the flexible smartphone will receive a 12-megapixel unit based on the Sony IMX386 sensor with ultra-wide-angle optics. We are talking about the presence of two selfie cameras – one for the outdoor screen and the other for the indoor. Both of them will receive an 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 sensor.
