Google has major smartphone launches just around the corner, and an announcement is expected at its I/O conference in May. Now, it appears that the Google Pixel Fold and Pixel 7a release date will be in June, as some other details have surfaced as well.
The Google Pixel Fold is set to launch in mid-June this year, leaked retail listings have been revealed by 9to5Google reveal. The listings also specifically call the product “Google Pixel Fold,” as expected.
The Pixel 7a as well as a new blue variant of the Pixel Buds A-Series will be launched on the same date.
That’s way ahead of schedule compared to the Google I/O launch in 2022, where the Pixel 6a arrived in July after being announced at the annual conference. The June release date is sure to keep the Pixel Fold’s internals relevant for a while longer, given that the device is set to use the Tensor G2 chipset found in last year’s Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
The retail listings also indicate that the Pixel Fold will be available in two colors, a “carbon” color which is definitely a shade of black or grey, as well as a “porcelain” which is likely to be white. We’ve also heard that Google is planning official cases for the Fold in “Haze Midtone,” “Porcelain,” and “Sky” color options.
Finally, it looks like the Pixel Fold will only be available in a 256GB storage variant, or at least that’s the smallest option available based on the retail listings. We also spotted a 512GB variant, but only in the “carbon” color method.
For the Pixel 7a, the menus show “Carbon,” “Cotton,” and “Arctic Blue” colors. Roland Quandt WinFuture also mentioned A possible “jade” color is coming, but we don’t see that option. However, we do see “Jade” as a can color along with “Arctic Blue,” “Carbon,” and “Cotton White.” The listings show 128GB of storage as the only option, which will be on par with the A-series launches.
