Google’s Pixel Fold is finally officially here

All fans of these devices were eagerly waiting for the first puzzle from Google, and this year it finally clicked. The Pixel Fold is officially here, and at the presentation, it attracted attention mainly due to its compact form – it is the second most compact folding device at the moment. But did you know that this expected puzzle may have had siblings?

Pixel Fold and its brother

Behind-the-scenes information from the development of the new Pixel Fold in the official Made by Google podcast she was talking Ivy Ross, vice president of hardware design at Google. And we definitely got some interesting facts, such as the fact that Google was developing two jigsaw puzzles at the same time.

The search giant was already rumored to be preparing two foldable phones back in 2021. So now, two years later, those rumors are being confirmed as true and the reason why the second foldable from the workshops Google it ended up in the abyss of history and did not make it into series production, it is very straightforward. She wasn’t good enough.

The second Fold, or maybe a clamshell?

Unfortunately, we did not get to know what type of folding phone it was, so we can only guess its form. Was it perhaps a classic puzzle, like the current Pixel Fold? Or perhaps a puzzle in the opposite guard, following the example of the Mate Xs and Xs 2 models from Huawei?

Much more likely is a folding clamshell design that would perfectly complement the current Pixel Fold. Both of these types of jigsaws are offered side by side by most manufacturers, including Samsung (Fold a Flip), Oppa (Find N2 a Find N2 Flip), Viva (X Fold a X Flip) or Huawei (Mate X3 a Pocket S), so it would make sense.

Will we ever see a clamshell from Google?

This is not only possible, but very likely. Clamshells are very popular and the Galaxy Z Flip model from Samsung is the best-selling folding phone in the world for a long time, beating all folding phones with a traditional mechanism in sales. If Google really developed clamshells in the past, then it already has some experience with it and can now start it in earnest.
