After so many rumors, speculations and leaks, the Google foldable smartphone in question is finally out. The Pixel Fold was launched during the Google I/O conference earlier yesterday. It arrives with a compact form factor that distinguishes it from Samsung Galaxy Z Fold lineup. The foldable gets a durable hinge and is powered by the Tensor G2 chip under the hood. There’s a triple camera setup on the rear, headlined by a 48MP main sensor.

Starting with its design, the Pixel Fold gets a small form factor and its rear looks very similar to Pixel 7 Pro. There’s a glossy glass back panel and a shiny camera bar. However, the camera bar is not edge-to-edge and it looks like a large bump.

On the front, you get thick but symmetrical bezels that also house the front camera. The foldable is using a new teardrop hinge mechanism to minimize the visible display crease.
