The Next Pixels: What You Should Know

Foldable Phones
Speaker 1: Apparently, there are lots of pixels in the works. There's the seven, the seven pro and maybe a foldable. Let's talk about it. Speaker 1: Keep this in mind that nothing is official. Google has not previewed anything as of yet, this video is based on the slew of reports out there. Now we should have time coach for the pixel seven pro and the seven. So you can jump to those if you want, but we're gonna start with the foldable one since it's probably the most interesting, [00:00:30] there have been reports about a foldable pixel for a while, way back in September of 2021, the ever reliable F blast tweeted this heard from someone. I trust that the foldable pixel code passport retail branding unknown will indeed launch before the end of the year. Apparently they've been working on this device for over two years. And if the P six is any indication, it'll be worth a look. So that was 2021. And we obviously did not see the launch of a foldable pixel, but wait, there's [00:01:00] more nine to, I Google found some information about another foldable pixel with a code name pipit they found this out by digging into a build of Android 12 Al beta Android, 12 L is focused on larger screened Android devices. Speaker 1: There were a couple of animations that may give us an idea of what a foldable Google pixel would look like. In one animation. You see what looks like a folded phone with a hinge on the left screen, on the front buttons, on the right and a place to put your SIM card. There's a second [00:01:30] animation showing what it looks like the same device, but opened up this time. There's a large inner screen. The buttons remain on the right. The SIM tray is centered on the left panel. Nine to five. Google also did some measurements and they a figure. The aspect ratio of the internal display is around seven by eight. The shape of the device is drawn comparison to the oppo. Find N that's a phone that's available only in China. You can see it's kind of a shortened wide device, no matter whether it's opened or closed. Speaker 1: When C net's Eli Blumenthal [00:02:00] tried out that device. He said, then when he a his fingers across the 7.1 inch display, it felt like a regular tablet. The crease is not that noticeable when the end is open. Does that mean that the pixel foldable will be the same as the apple end? Not necessarily. However, if Google is entering the foldable phone market, it has some options when it comes to sourcing displays, as that technology is maturing, let's talk about specs nine to five. Google had some reports on this. The foldable would be powered by Google's [00:02:30] tensor chip, the same one that's in the pixel six series. That's a curiosity. You would think that the foldable would be powered by whatever's in the pixel seven, nine to five. Google also had a report from late last year about the cameras on the foldable. In fact, that what was really, really detailed. Speaker 1: It said that the foldable will not use the pixel sixes 50 megapixel, Samsung G N one sensor. Instead it will use a 12.2 megapixel Sony camera, which can be found on the pixels three through five a. So this new foldable [00:03:00] Google phone has some interesting specs and attributes. It may have a squareish inner screen. It could be powered by the pixel six, tensor. The cameras could be a bit of a downgrade from the six as well. Why is this? It could be about the pricing nine to five. Google says that Google's aiming for a $1,400 price point. Now the six costs around $600. The pro starts at around $900, the most expensive six pro with a half a terabyte of storage tops out at around $1,100. So [00:03:30] it would be a bit extra to get a foldable Google phone. If you look at the folding competition that Samsung Z flip three costs around a thousand dollars, the galaxy Z fold three starts at just $1,800. Speaker 1: The Google foldable would be in that middle spot. If the company makes some trade offs, it seems possible to hit that $1,400 price point. When would we see this device? Well, a tweet by the CEO of display supply chain consultants, Ross young said, it's back, looks like Google's foldable pay. We'll [00:04:00] start panel production in Q3 2022 and launch in Q4 2022. Well, that's a pretty safe bet. The pixel launches are usually in October, which is in the fourth quarter. Young also tweeted that the pixel seven will shrink from 6.4 inches to 6.3. The pixel seven pro will stick to 6.7 inches. So let's talk about that. Pixel seven pro on leagues tweeted this out here comes your very first and very early look at the Google pixel seven pro. He included a link to smart pre.com, [00:04:30] which had a lot of renders and a pixel seven pro 360 degree view. Speaker 1: Remember these images are not official, however, accurate pixel hardware information. So seems to leak out every year and on leaks is pretty reliable. I'll run down some specs while we show you some of the renders. This report says that the pixel seven pro would have a 6.7 or 6.8 inch screen. There would be a single punch hole front facing camera. The old lead panel would have a refresh rate that will quote challenge Samsung's [00:05:00] current the S 22 ultra for comparison. The S 22 ultra has a variable refresh rate. Samsung plans that the S 22 ultra can go from 120 Hertz all the way down to one Hertz. The pixel six pro also has a dynamic, 120 Hertz refresh rate that can drop down to 10 Hertz. The idea behind these dynamic rates. So your phone can save on battery life. If it does not have to show you something at a super high frame rate all the time, you'll get more time on your [00:05:30] phone. Speaker 1: The camera belt on the back of the seven pro could be merged with the frame that camera belt would have three cameras, a primary wide angle camera, a Periscope TFO camera, and probably an ultra wide rounding out things are stereo speakers and a USBC port. But what about the pixel seven? Don't you worry on leaks also tweeted out renders of what he says is the pixel seven. Guess what? It looks similar to the pixel six and a bit like the pixel seven pro renders. Let's go straight to that camera belt. It's [00:06:00] more integrated into the overall body of the device. Like the seven pro the belt would stick with two cameras, not three, like the pro the screen size would be in the neighborhood of 6.2 inches to 6.4 inches. The report over@carhp.com did not have any information about the refresh rate on the seven. Speaker 1: However, that same report did mention some news on the pixel seven storage. There'd be 128 gig, 2 56 gig, and a new 512 gig version. More storage is always good. [00:06:30] Okay. So that was a lot of information. We're gonna break some of this down and please let me know what you think of these phones and the comments. I think a foldable pixel seems like a good idea, mostly because the idea of a foldable phone is no longer brand new Google gets to leverage data from other manufacturers like oppo, Motorola, and most importantly, Samsung. And it's not like Google will just learn from Samsung's public dealings. It could get insight directly from the company. Samsung and Google have gotten very tight over the [00:07:00] past few years, Samsung worked with Google to make wear OS better and maybe a real alternative to the apple watch. Then there's Samsung's foldable phones. Speaker 1: The galaxy fold has been around for three years. The first one was a bit clunky and that internal camera cutout was a bit funky, but what a more Marvel of engineering, tons of cameras, a screen to use when the device is closed and another huge flexible display on the inside through the years, Samsung has revised the fold into a much more [00:07:30] sleek product after getting feedback. Samsung and competitors seem to think there's a real market for foldable and Android tablet. As long as they have a regular phone attached, Google got on board with all of this in October of 2021, with the introduction of Android, 12 L when it comes to Android and tablets, it's been, I'll say it, a mess Android's initial foray into tablets was all messed up because Android is inherently different than the apple model. Developers [00:08:00] had to make apps that ran on all kinds of screen sizes, because there were so many different kinds of Android phones. Speaker 1: Then Android phones got bigger, essentially making Android tablets kind of irrelevant in June, 2019, Google hardware head, Rick Oslo tweeted that Google's own hardware team would focus on building laptops, but that the cut company would remain committed to its tablet partners. That's right. Google gave up on making its own Android tablets after years of trying devices like the galaxy E fold [00:08:30] three, along with Android, 12 L show that Android on tablet size screens is far from dead. A foldable pixel would not be breaking any new ground and that's okay. There's nothing wrong with a well built well supported piece of hardware that runs a version of Android without the dressing that some other companies put on their phones competition in this space is good. If Google is aiming for that $1,400 price point, I think that's a good idea too. The company doesn't have to make the best foldable in the world. Speaker 1: A really good one [00:09:00] is fine. Google's best stuff is still in software and services. As long as that stuff runs well on a pixel foldable, a lot of people will be satisfied as for the pixel sevens. I, I think the designs are quite fine. They may not be a huge departure from the six series, but that's okay. The six and the six pro they have premium looks and a distinctive camera bumps. I still think that camera bumps are silly. Make a fatter phone with a bigger battery and more storage. You cowards. Anyway, the camera belts on the pixels, give those [00:09:30] phones a sense of identity. And on the practical side, that bar means when you place the pixels sick on a desk, it won't wobble. When you touch the screen. I am really curious about what advances are coming to the next generation of tensor processors. The first generation offered some impressive offline abilities, like speech recognition, more stuff was being done on the actual phone without data having to go back and forth to the cloud. We'll have to wait and see what shows up later this year. It, if you are curious about the future of Android, check out this video, showing off what [00:10:00] the next version will be like. Google's developers conference is also coming up soon. We'll have coverage here, so don't forget to subscribe and hit that bell. I'm Maya Zart and I will see you online.
