Google is reportedly planning to expand its smartphone lineup with two new high-end phones. According to a leak, the brand will launch a Pixel Fold with a folding screen and a Pixel 7 Ultra very soon. The production of these two outsiders would have started in the factories of Foxconn.
According to rumors, Google secretly developed two high-end smartphones these last months. To accompany the Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Pro, the Mountain View giant would indeed have developed a Pixel 7 Ultra. Hints of the phone’s existence appeared in code from the Android Open Source Program (AOSP) and the fourth beta version of Android 13.
In parallel, Google would also have designed the Pixel Fold, its first phone with a folding screen. Several leaks have come to attest to the existence of the project in recent years. But, according to the latest rumors, Google has postponed the launch several times. However, it is rumored that the Pixel Fold, which could also be called Pixel Notepad, will finally enter the market in the fall of 2022.

According to our colleagues at SamMobile, Google would have launched the production of these two terminals. Citing information gleaned by Digital Chat Station, a very active Chinese informant on the Sina Weibo social network, the media assures that the manufacture of the devices has been entrusted to Foxconn factories.
The Chinese subcontractor, best known for assembling Apple iPhones, is currently producing the Pixel Fold and the Pixel 7 Ultra in its factories. If the information from Digital Chat Station is confirmed, we can expect that the presentation of the two devices is imminent. Could the two flagships make their debut in the fall at the Pixel 7 conference? According to insider Jon Prosser, Google’s hardware conference would be held on October 6, 2022. The devices would hit stores starting October 13.
Similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Oppo’s Find N, the Pixel Fold would take the form of a folding smartphone convertible into a tablet. According to the leaks, it would be built arounda 7.6-inch folding 120Hz OLED display designed by Samsung. For its part, the Pixel 7 Ultra would be similar to its little brothers, the Pixel 7. More premium, it would however stand out thanks to a 2K screen, a ceramic shell and a 100 megapixel photo lens.
