Google’s next Pixel Fold smartphone is now rumored to skip the Tensor G3 chipset and go straight for the Tensor G4. The Tensor G4 is expected to power the Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro when they launch this October, so if the Fold will feature it too, then it may only see the light of day alongside the Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro.
The original Pixel Fold was introduced at Google I/O last year, the conference that takes place in May. With that in mind we were expecting to see its successor this May but apparently not – that is, of course, if this rumor pans out.
Performance-wise, Google’s Tensor chipsets have never been record-breaking. Thus the new Fold waiting a few months to get a better chip doesn’t sound like such a bad idea. But wait, there’s more – apparently Google is testing the Pixel Fold 2 with 16GB of RAM, which is more than any Pixel ever had. It’s also got UFS 4.0 storage, which is a step up from the UFS 3.1 storage in the OG.
We’ve already seen leaks regarding the Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro, but nothing so far about the Pixel Fold – and that in itself might be an indirect confirmation of today’s rumor.
