Google should launch a new mobile Pixel folding later this year, according to information released by Jon Prosser, known for publishing the “secrets” of the brand. At the Twitter, Prosser says that the launch is scheduled for the end of this year or, in the worst case, in the beginning of 2022.
For now, little is known about the device. Rumors indicate that the smartphone will be collapsible and that it will have a 7.6-inch display provided by Samsung. Google has not yet commented on the matter.

According to a new report from TheElec, in addition to working on developing a collapsible OLED for Google, Samsung will also be a supplier to other brands such as Oppo and Xiaomi, which aim to have a screen of approximately 6.38 inches.
New Pixel Line
Prosser’s news continues a series of rumors about Google’s new folding. In August of last year, an internal company document was leaked and already revealed the search giant’s desire to develop a Pixel phone for 2021. In addition to the foldable phone, the documentation also pointed to the existence of more devices in production: the entry-level smartphone Pixel 5A and two more devices identified with the codenames “Raven” and “Oriole”.
Another novelty that should appear in the Pixel line in 2021, according to the report, is the new processor architecture. The company entered into a partnership with Samsung for the manufacture of chips.
