The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 is all set to get another rival in the form of Google Pixel Fold on May 10. Ahead of the Google I/O 2023 event, which is scheduled for Wednesday, May 10, the company has provided an official look at the Pixel Fold. Teasing the phone via a small clip, Made by Google tweeted, "May The Fold Be With You”. This is a reworked phrase that was made popular by the iconic Star Wars movies. The phrase "May the force be with you" is mouthed by Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and he is speaking to Luke Skywalker. Google has replaced 'Force' with 'Fold'.

In the small video shared, we can see the Pixel Fold in white colour, starting with the triple rear camera setup and shiny hinge. The footage also shows the foldable fully open. We can see how thin the Pixel Fold is and the inner screen.

Google also confirmed the name of the phone to be Pixel Fold by giving a hashtag to it. While on the Google Store, the Pixel Fold has been mentioned as, “The first foldable phone engineered by Google.” It is also asking people to tune in on May 10 to watch the livestreamed keynotes at the Google I/O event.
