The Google development team was forced to postpone the launch of the new Pixel Foldthe phone with which the company hopes to compete in the foldable phone segment.
The reason for the delay, as explained by The Elec, is that the teams that have managed to develop so far do not have the quality required by developers. The delay could cause the launch of the phone to occur during the next year, which represents very bad news for the company that had expectations that the launch would occur during this year.
Everything seemed to indicate that the landing of the Pixel Fold would take place in conjunction with the arrival of Android 13the new version of Google’s operating system.
The information published by The Elec does not detail exactly what kind of problems Google would be presenting with the manufacture of its phone. Some experts have commented that one of the reasons could be that there are integration problems between Android and folding screens.
It should be noted that, at least for now, the number of companies that have managed to launch phones with this technology on the market is extremely smallwhich shows that the manufacture of this type of equipment is a greater challenge in terms of the technical section.
The announcement of the delay of the Pixel Fold is not something new for Google users well users have been waiting for this phone since mid-2021when it was supposed to hit the market, which never materialized.
According to the leaks that have occurred so far, Google’s new folding terminal It will have two types of versions, whose tentative names would be “Passport” and “Jumbojack”However, there is no confirmation of this.
The difference between the two would be the direction in which they fold, since in the case of the Passport it would do so vertically, while the Jumbojack would do so horizontally.
