Google appears to be getting closer to releasing its first foldable sometime this year, after going through several iterations. According to a source, the Pixel Fold will have the largest battery yet in a foldable device, even though it will be quite a heavy device.
Pixel Fold’s weight and size
Renders have shown how Google’s Pixel Fold will most closely resemble the Oppo Find N2, and its precise dimensions have already been leaked. The Pixel will be 7 millimeters (.25 inches) wider than the other foldable, measuring just under 80 millimeters (3.14 inches). As a comparison:
- Pixel 7 Pro is 76.6mm wide (3 inches)
- Fold 4 is 155.1mm (6.1 inches) tall and 67.1mm (2.64 inches) wide when folded
- Another close approximation is the Surface Duo, which is 5mm (.2 inches) taller and 13.3mm (.52 inches) wider than the Pixel Fold
Microsoft’s foldable can be used with one hand, but Google’s decision to make it smaller will make it easier to use one hand. How, it won’t be as easy to hold when folded old as the Galaxy Fold 4.
The main advantage of going wide is the internal display that makes it simple for apps to use a large-screen optimized UI in a landscape rectangle rather than Samsung’s near-square. The Pixel Fold’s expected aspect ratio follows Google’s existing work on large-screen optimization, which is primarily targeted at tablets. When multitasking, it can also fit two apps side by side comfortably, and the larger size ensures that tablet interfaces won’t feel crowded, unlike Oppo’s Find N2.
9to5Google has disco discovered that the Pixel Crease is heavier than the 263g Z Overlay 4, with the first Surface Couple 250g and the Oppo Track down N act, considering its weight, it is comparable to a small tablet and significantly heavier than the Pixel 7 Pro, which is already quite substantial.
Battery for Google Pixel Fold
The Pixel Fold has a significantly larger battery than its rivals, especially the Z Fold 4, which has a typical capacity of 4,400 mAh, and the Oppo Find N2, which has a typical capacity of 4,520 mAh. 9to5Google has learned that the battery will be smaller than 5,000 mAh, but still close.
The thin designs required to make foldables practical frequently necessitate battery capacity compromises, so battery life on these devices has been inconsistent up to this point. Since Google wants a bigger battery, this could set the device apart from other “book” foldables. However, due to the differences in efficiency between Google Tensor G2 and other brands’ Snapdragon chips, this advantage may be irrelevant.
There are several on the market, but no one has found the best form factor. The Google apps that people use may ultimately be the Pixel Fold’s greatest competitive advantage. Android will be more closely optimized for this hardware than any other operating system.
