Google Pixel Fold coming in Q3 as the best Samsung Fold alternative
The upcoming Google Pixel Fold smartphone is not hidden from anyone. The Android maker is creating its own foldable smartphone to compete with major foldable smartphone brands like Samsung. It seems like Google is planning to give direct competition to the Galaxy Z Fold 5 as the Pixel Fold is suggested to come in Q3 of this year.
Korean media The Elec has recently reported that Google will start mass producing the parts of its first foldable Pixel smartphone, such as the display, in the third- quarter of this year.
Samsung, which is working on this project with Google, is planning to create a foldable smartphone panel for the Pixel Fold sometime in July or August. The device could have an internal screen of 7.57 inches and an internal screen of 5.78 inches.
Both the outer and inner display features ultra-thin glass (UTG) and the phone’s overall shape looks similar to the Samsung Fold series. However, it is likely that the Pixel Fold will not support a stylus (S Pen), which is a specialty of Galaxy foldable.
Moreover, since the beginning, Samsung is introducing its new foldable smartphone sometime in August, the third quarter of every year. And, it is expected that the same will be the case with the forthcoming Galaxy foldable phones – Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5.
Now as Google is also planning to introduce its Pixel Fold in Q3, it looks like Samsung’s foldable phone will finally get good competition. However, Samsung doesn’t seem to worry about it. This might be because Samsung itself is manufacturing most of the components of the Pixel Fold.
Watch Next-Gen Samsung Display In Action: Rollable, Flex In and Out and Sensor OLED
At SID 2023, Samsung unveiled next-gen display technologies and showcased them through device prototypes. I like Rollable Flex the most, while the Flex In and Out and Sensor OLED Display panels are stunningly wonderful. Check the next-gen Samsung Display prototypes below:
Rollable Flex expands more than five times, from 49 mm to 254.4 mm in length. While conventional foldable or slidable form factors offer up to three times the scalability, Rollable Flex overcomes such limitations by enabling the display to be rolled and unrolled on an O-shaped axis like a scroll.
Flex In & Out
This new foldable phone concept can be folded both inward and outward 360 degrees.
The ‘in-folding’ form factor, which can only be folded inward, requires a separate external panel to view information while folded, but the Flex In & Out is able to overcome that, opening up the possibility of lighter and thinner foldable phones.
Sensor OLED Display
Samsung Display unveiled a new Sensor OLED Display that can recognize fingerprints anywhere on the screen and even check cardiovascular health at SID Display Week 2023. It can measure the user’s heart rate, blood pressure and stress level simply with the touch of two fingers.
