These stories come from Korean trade web site The Elec, and provide chain analyst Ross Younger of DSCC. Each have a reasonably good monitor report for accuracy, so we see no motive to disagree with the timeline that now exhibits a subsequent spring launch.
We initially thought the machine could be launched on the finish of 2021, after tips to Passport had been discovered within the Android 12 beta code. It’s been a very long time since then, and we haven’t seen a lot information in regards to the foldable.

One other leak mentioned that Google is engaged on no less than one different foldable, “Jumbojack”. We’re undecided if that’s a cellphone or a bigger foldable pill.
9to5Google wonders if it’s a machine for inside testing. It’s completely attainable that Google has some foldables which are for growing Android options.
Google confirmed off each the Pixel Watch and an upcoming Pixel pill at Google I/O earlier this yr. A foldable Pixel will probably launch after the pill, in any other case, Google would have teased it at I/O as effectively.
