First Google Pixel Fold hands-on video shows up online

Those are some chunky bezels!

It is not a secret anymore that Google has been working on a foldable phone for quite some time. We first heard of a foldable phone from Google over a year ago. Recently, we also got the phone renders shared by OnLeaks. But now, we have got our first real-world look at the design of this phone, as a short video of the Google Pixel Fold was shared by Kuba Wojciechowski on Twitter.

This short video reveals the most important part of a foldable phone, the folding display. As we can see, the Google Pixel Fold has a form factor similar to the Oppo N2. But the phone does have quite chunky bezels on all four sides. Unlike other foldable phones in the market, Google did not go for thin bezels & a hole punch cutout for the selfie camera.

While the video did not show the bezels on the external display, the phone has a 5.8-inch cover display compared to the 7.6-inch main foldable screen.

According to CNBC, Google has planned to unveil the phone at the Google I/O on May 10. As per CNBC’s sources, Google claims this phone’s hinge is the most durable among any foldable phone in the market. The price is going to be around $1,700, and for the price, you are getting a Tensor G2 chipset under the hood.

Speaking of the specifications, Yogesh Brar revealed on Twitter that the Google Pixel Fold has a foldable 7.6-inch QXGA+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 5.8-inch 720p AMOLED cover display with a 120Hz refresh rate. There is 12GB RAM and 256GB or 512GB internal storage. The triple camera setup on the rear includes a 48MP primary sensor with OIS, a 10.8MP ultrawide & a 10.8MP telephoto lens. The cover display has a 9.5MP camera, whereas the inner display has an 8MP camera for selfies.

Finally, the phone has a 4,500mAh battery with 23W fast charging support.
