According To Leaked Display Specifications, Google’s Pixel Fold Could Be Similar To The Galaxy Z Fold 4

Contrary to popular belief in the run-up to Google’s big October 6 event, the first-ever foldable Pixel device is not yet official… in any shape or form. But we all (sort of) know such a product exists and is on its way to market… at some point, most likely in 2023, according to the most well-connected industry analysts out there.

Although it may appear premature, a few Pixel Fold camera specifications are also (allegedly) out of the bag, and a slew of key details on the display(s) of the search giant’s big Galaxy Z Fold 4 challenger can now be added to its (rumored) prospective value proposition.

Is Samsung your friend or foe?

The relationships between the top hardware and software players in the global mobile industry can be… complicated, much like the Targaryen family tree in the new HBO hit show “House of the Dragon.”

Google, for example, will almost certainly try to chip away at Samsung’s dominant foldable market share with the help of an occasional rival and frequent business partner. That’s right, it appears that Samsung will supply both of the Pixel Fold’s screens, which isn’t surprising given that the same can be said for the (single) panels of the Pixel 7, 7 Pro, and even the mid-range 6a.

The 2208 x 1840 pixel resolution of this upcoming foldable’s primary display is far more interesting to note in the latest exclusive 91mobiles report based on inside information unearthed by the developer and increasingly prolific leaker Kuba Wojciechowski.

That’s nearly identical to what the aforementioned Galaxy Z Fold 4 has to offer in that department (specifically, 2176 x 1812 pixels), and while Wojciechowski isn’t certain, the Pixel Fold is very likely to support the same 120Hz refresh rate technology as its main rival, at least in terms of this main foldable screen.

With 148 x 123mm dimensions also leaked today, the Pixel Fold’s primary screen diagonal could be around 7.6 inches, which is also what the Z Fold 4 has going for it. Last but not least, the average 800 nits and peak 1200 nits brightness sound deserving of a spot on our list of the best phones money can buy for the Pixel Fold, alongside the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Z Fold 4.

Is the Galaxy Z Fold 4 a true challenger or merely a knockoff?

That, my friends, is the million-billion-dollar question, and as much as we’d like to avoid a prematurely clear and definitive answer in order to maintain a semblance of suspense, the truth is that Google doesn’t stand a chance of challenging Samsung’s hugely successful foldable.

Not at first, at least not after three years of refining and improving the Galaxy (Z) Fold family to achieve the closest thing to perfection the fledgling product category has delivered to date, and certainly not without doing… something different.

Of course, there’s still time to find out if the Pixel Fold will look or behave differently than the Z Fold 4, especially since the secondary display, battery capacity, charging speeds, and a slew of other important details (including the cameras) are far from set in stone.

Unfortunately, Google appears to have squandered too much time developing this device, dubbed Felix, and canceling at least a couple of similar products due to quality issues. Nonetheless, the first-generation Pixel Fold could very well be the start of a beautiful eventual contender, just as 2016’s largely experimental OG Pixel handset undeniably contributed to the family’s maturation.

Let’s just hope it doesn’t take the Pixel Fold six years to get there.
