Google I/O 2023: Pixel 7a and Pixel Fold Launch Rumored

Google is expected to unveil the Pixel 7a and reveal what’s coming at the upcoming Google I/O developers conference on May 10, 2023. It is rumored that the Pixel 7a will have a starting price of €499, and will include a single version of 128GB storage capacity with four colorways: Arctic Blue, Carbon, Cotton, and Jade.[0] In addition, the device is said to run on the new Google Tensor G2 chip, have wireless charging at 5W, and feature a 50MP primary camera, 64MP telephoto camera, and 12MP ultrawide camera.[1]

The Pixel Fold, Google’s first foldable phone, is also expected to launch alongside the Pixel 7a. The device is rumored to have a price tag ranging from $1,300 to $1,500, and will come in two color variants, Carbon and Porcelain. Additionally, Google is said to be offering three colored covers for the Pixel Fold in Haze Midtone, Porcelain, and Sky.[2]

Live images of the Pixel 7a have been leaked, revealing that it will feature the same signature metal camera bar as the Pixel 7.[3] It will have a smaller 6.1 inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate, two 12MP cameras (wide and ultra-wide) on the back, a hole-punch front-facing camera, and larger bezels than the Pixel 7 series.[4]

The Pixel 7a and Pixel Fold have both been certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), suggesting that an official announcement of both devices is imminent.[5] A prototype of the Pixel 7a is currently being sold on eBay, though the device powers on to fastboot mode and is missing its physical SIM tray.[6]

It appears that Google is preparing to launch two exciting devices in the near future, the Pixel 7a and the Pixel Fold. We can expect both devices to be announced at Google I/O 2023, with retail listings suggesting the Pixel Fold could be available for purchase in mid-June of this year.[7]
