The rumors of Google working on a foldable smartphone are nothing new. They keep surfacing on the internet every once in a while and most recently, we even heard reports about it getting canceled. A new report has now emerged that suggests the alleged Pixel Fold might still be under development.
As per MySmartPrice, a Google phone codenamed Pipit has been spotted on the Geekbench benchmarking website. It is said to be the same foldable the company is widely rumored to be working on. The listing reveals that the phone has an octa-core processor with a base clock speed of 1.8GHz and a peak clock speed of 2.8GHz. There is a Mali-G78 GPU for handling graphics-intensive tasks like video games. It is speculated that this is the same Tensor processor that we saw with the Pixel 6 series.
The Pixel Fold is also shown to be featuring 12GB of RAM which if true will likely appear on the high-end variant. The report speculates that we may get to see 256GB and 512GB storage options. As for benchmark scores, the listing shows 4811 and 11349 scores for single-core and multi-core tests respectively.
The new rumor does not offer information about camera performance we did hear things previously. It was speculated that Pixel Fold will have the same camera setup as the Pixel 5. The launch is tipped for the fourth quarter of this year but we will have to wait and see if that actually happens.
