If you are eagerly waiting for the iPhone 15 series to arrive, then there's one more option which you can go for – the Google Pixel Fold. Foldable smartphones are gaining more popularity day by day and these devices offer something unique compared to the generic smartphones with identical looks and at par specs. Samsung has two offerings in the foldable segment with the Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip series while Oppo has entered the Flip phone market too with its Oppo Find N2 Flip. Now Google is also set to dip its toes in the foldable smartphone market with the rumoured Google Pixel Fold.

Google Pixel Fold: What could it bring?

It is being suggested that the Google Pixel Fold will have a similar form factor as the Oppo Find N. To be specific, it is expected to feature a 5.79-inch outer display with a hole-punch camera cutout at the center and a 7.69-inch inner screen with a right-aligned selfie camera cutout, according to tipster Debayan Roy (Gadgetsdata) on Twitter. The leaks also suggest that it could also feature OLED panels with ultra-thin glass supplied by Samsung.
