Google Pixel Fold benchmark suggests the phone is still in the works and coming soon


Along with the Pixel Watch the Google Pixel Fold has lengthy been rumored, and we’ve lengthy questioned when or even when it should launch. But the newest leak suggests that Google is still actively engaged on it, and that the launch may not be too far out.

MySmartPrice has noticed a Geekbench itemizing for a Google phone with the codename Pipit, and that’s a codename that’s believed to belong to the Pixel Fold.

The itemizing reveals numerous particulars, together with that there’s 12GB of RAM, a chipset that strains up with the specs of the Google Tensor discovered in the Pixel 6, and Android 12 (although we’d anticipate this phone will really launch with Android 12L).

There’s nothing too stunning right here, but when Google has a model of the phone being benchmarked, and it’s utilizing the Tensor chipset, that suggests it’d launch soon. Benchmarks typically (although not at all times) seem near launch, and if the Pixel Fold was going to launch later than this yr we’d anticipate a more recent chipset.

In truth, we’d guess it’d even land in the first half of the yr, since in the second half Google will in all probability have the Pixel 7 vary with the Tensor 2.

The itemizing additionally reveals a single-core rating of 4,811 and a multi-core rating of 11,349, which as anticipated is in line with the Pixel 6 – notice although that this is a Geekbench 4 itemizing, which supplies larger scores than Geekbench 5.

We’d at all times take early benchmarks with a pinch of salt although, as even when this is correct it should probably be utilizing pre-release {hardware} and software program, so issues may change and enhance earlier than launch.

Opinion: a foldable throwdown that’s good for consumers

If you ask me the Google Pixel Fold can’t come soon sufficient. Currently, Samsung has little or no competitors in the foldable area, so giving consumers extra alternative (and encouraging Samsung to step its recreation up) can solely be an excellent factor.

Plus, the Pixel Fold might be the good showcase for Android 12L – Google’s upcoming model of Android designed for large-screen gadgets, so this is the good yr for it.

Hopefully then this benchmark actually is an indication that it’s coming soon, however there’s still an opportunity that it’s not coming in any respect, as not so way back we heard a rumor that the Pixel Fold had been canceled. Fingers crossed it hasn’t been, then.
