Now, though, that foldable could be getting shelved. According to sometimes-reliable leaker Ross Young, the Google Pixel Fold (which is its assumed name) is no longer happening. Young says Google has allegedly canceled orders for materials that would be necessary to produce the foldable on a large scale.

Given the situation of the tech sector and the foldables market, cancelling this phone might be a good idea. According to an industry insider, Google has purportedly scrapped the Google Pixel Fold. The purported cancellation was most likely caused by an inability to compete as well as a lack of materials. According to the rumour mill, a foldable Pixel never actually got off the ground. Earlier this year, rumours circulated that Google will unveil a foldable phone during its October presentation. Obviously, this did not occur, since the firm only released the Pixel 6 series. However, it doesn’t mean the corporation isn’t working on a foldable device.

Highlights

  • Of course, this doesn’t preclude Google from creating a foldable in the future, even one maybe called the Google Pixel Fold. It just means the foldable phone rumored to launch this year is almost certainly not happening. Calling all Android users: Stay in the know about your operating system with news from Google.

  • Young also contends there are two main reasons behind this decision. The first is that Google might have been worried about the foldable not being competitive enough. Samsung dominates the foldables market now, so for Google to compete, it would need to offer something better or something less expensive. It’s likely Google couldn’t figure out how to do this. The second reason there might not be a Google Pixel Fold is a materials shortage. The ongoing global chip shortage is making it difficult for companies to keep even the most basic of phones in production, and throwing in a foldable phone with a limited audience likely wouldn’t be the best move.
