Google Pixel Fold case model is showing some further insight into the physical hardware, hinges, and inner display…!!
YouTuber Dave2D out the video of the case model of the Google Pixel Fold, which he claims to be “dimensionally accurate” to the actual device Google has in the works. While this model is void of any actual smartphone hardware, the design and shape do line up with previous leaks.
We have learned close regards from the 9TO5Google, that the case model shows a device that is remarkably thin at 5.7mm. Which is termed 0.6mm thinner than the Galaxy Z Fold 4 when it is unfolded. The YouTuber has also indulged in that Pixel phones are known for their thin body structure. Therefore adding the screen, will be wider than Samsung’s Fold devices.
Google’s device will have somewhat thick bezels, at least by modern standards, on the inner display. This allows the phone to have a camera that is not embedded in the display using a cutout or under-display technology. The bezels were measured at around 5-6mm. A mock-up of what the device looks like with those supposed bezels can be seen below.
The hinge, seemingly confirming that Google’s foldable won’t have a gap like Samsung’s devices do today, instead closing flush. This implies that Google will be using a “waterdrop” style hinge, similar to the Oppo Find N2, wherein the display recedes into the hinge slightly when the phone is closed up. Samsung is rumored to be moving to a similar design on the Galaxy Z Fold 5 to help lessen the visible display crease.
Dave2D says he has been told that the Pixel Fold will have a hinge similar to the Oppo Find N series. That you can understand in better way the videos we have embedded above. The video goes on to point out that the speakers are positioned at the top left and bottom right of the two sides, which might lead to better stereo sound in either orientation. Samsung’s foldable position speakers are at the top and bottom of the left side of the device (when unfolded), while Oppo positions its speakers at the bottom of both halves.
