Google stops developing foldable Pixel smartphone

There has been talk for months about a foldable Pixel phone. However, if the latest rumors are correct, Google has scrapped the so-called ‘Pixel Fold’.

Unfortunately, no foldable Google Pixel (yet)

Google has scrapped its current plans for a foldable Pixel smartphone. That says Ross Young, a (usually) reliable tasty. According to Young Google has canceled all sorts of orders for a number of essential parts to make folding phones. The Lekker points out that there are two main reasons for the deletion of the ‘Pixel Fold’.

Google would be afraid that the competition is too strong. Samsung currently dominates the folding phone market, with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3. To remain distinctive, Google must come up with a better quality smartphone, or use a lower price. Chances are, Google can’t realize both.

In addition, the persistent chip shortages are gradually becoming a real problem. Manufacturers have trouble producing even the most standard devices. Demand is growing every day, but supply remains scarce. There is simply no room for experimentation in the current landscape.

Will Google never make a folding phone?

So we shouldn’t expect a foldable Pixel in 2022 – if the latest rumors are correct, that is. Of course, that doesn’t mean Google will never work on a folding phone again. Perhaps the search giant just put the Pixel Fold project on hold.

Until then, there are plenty of other manufacturers that will bring foldable smartphones on the market in the near future. Don’t have the patience for this anymore? Then you can go to Samsung. Brands such as Xiaomi and Oppo are also working on foldable and rollable smartphones, so it’s not just Samsung that beats the clock.
