HomeTech NewsGoogle's Pixel 9 Pro Fold Set to Join the Expanded Pixel 9 Lineup


  • Google’s next foldable phone rumoured as “Pixel 9 Pro Fold.”
  • Part of an expanded lineup including Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, and Pixel 9 Pro XL.
  • Expected to feature Google’s Tensor G4 chipset for enhanced performance.
  • Rumoured simultaneous launch with the entire Pixel 9 series in Fall 2024.

Google appears to be aligning its upcoming foldable Android phone with the highly anticipated Pixel 9 lineup, according to a recent report.

The company’s next foldable device is rumoured to be branded as the “Pixel 9 Pro Fold,” a shift in the naming strategy from its predecessor.

Why the Pixel 9 Pro Fold?

When Google launched its first Pixel Fold, it arrived during the gap between the Pixel 7 and Pixel 8 series launches.

However, information from Google leaker Kamila Wojciechowska suggests that the next foldable may be marketed as the “Google Pixel 9 Pro Fold.”

If the information we’ve seen about the Pixel 9 family of phones is accurate, this would bring the total number of devices in the series to four: the base Pixel 9, a smaller Pixel 9 Pro, the Pixel 9 Pro XL, and now the Pixel 9 Pro Fold.

Rumours indicate that the new foldable is built around Google’s upcoming Tensor G4 chipset, which will also power the rest of the Pixel 9 series.

In that sense, the “Pixel 9 Pro Fold” naming convention makes sense, as the second-generation Fold is expected to have similar internals and camera performance as the other Pixel 9 devices.

A Departure from Google’s Naming Convention

This naming strategy marks a significant shift from Google’s initial approach with its foldable line.

Previously dubbed “Pixel Fold 2” during its development phase, the renaming to “Pixel 9 Pro Fold” aligns it more closely with its sibling devices, though this name may still change as the product nears completion.

Launching the Pixel 9 Pro Fold alongside the other Pixel 9 models in the fall of 2024 would differentiate Google from competitors, who usually release their foldable models at different times from their main series.

A simultaneous launch of all four devices under the Pixel 9 umbrella is likely to generate significant interest.

However, these are all just rumours for the time being and should be taken with a grain of salt.
