Google pulls the plug: promising pixel cell phone discontinued

Pixel fans now have to be very strong: According to an analyst, Google has stopped developing a foldable smartphone. At least in the near future, a Pixel Fold is unlikely to come onto the market. The reasons for the stop make you sit up and take notice.

Are the champagne corks popping at Samsung? For the time being, the South Koreans could remain the only manufacturer that offers noteworthy folding smartphones. Because at least Google's attempt with the Pixel Fold seems to have failed (source: DSCC).

Google stops development of foldable smartphone

This is what Ross Young claims, who works as an analyst at Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) and is known for his excellent contacts in the supply chains. According to Young, Google is said to have stopped developing the Pixel Fold . The reasons given are concerns that the folding cell phone is not competitive and cannot keep up with Samsung's folding smartphones (video below) in terms of price in Europe and the USA .

With the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung has eliminated many of the teething troubles of its predecessors:

Google's foldable smartphone, according to older reports, should be similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and come with an LTPO display with a variable frame rate of up to 120 Hz. Compared to the current Pixel 6 smartphones, the Pixel Fold should have brought a worse camera.

It's only a matter of time before Google launches folding phones

However, Google's folding cell phone is unlikely to be at the very end. Display analyst Young explicitly states that the Pixel Fold will no longer appear in 2021 or in the first half of 2022. As is well known, postponed is not canceled. After all, the new Android 12 L was developed for folding smartphones, among other things, and many Chinese manufacturers such as Oppo have foldable smartphones up their sleeves. It should only be a matter of time before Google throws its hat into the ring and also brings a folding cell phone onto the market .
