Google Pixel Fold and Pixel 7a colorways, pricing, and storage info leak ahead of I/O
Google has confirmed its I/O event for May 10. The company is expected to unveil a slew of new products at said date, with the Pixel Fold and Pixel 7a looking to be sure bets. Ahead of I/O, however, details of both devices have now surfaced in the wild.
Starting with the Pixel Fold—yes, Google's inaugural foldable will be branded as such—the Galaxy Z Fold5 rival is reportedly set to go on sale in Europe by the second week of June or thereabouts. It will be available in two colorways: Carbon and Porcelain. Storage will begin at 256 GB, with a 512 GB model also available.
Reportedly, the Pixel Fold could be priced as high as €1700. That's unconfirmed, though, and leaker SnoopyTech claims the foldable could be cheaper. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 starts at €1799, and considering Google's pricing for its Pixel phones, it's likely the Pixel Fold undercuts the Samsung foldable's pricing. Perhaps, around €1499? Either way, the Pixel Fold will not come cheap.
The Pixel 7a has leaked in depth over the past few months, so there's not much unknown about it. It's said to be available in at least three color options: Arctic Blue, Carbon, and Cotton. A Jade colorway could be on the cards as well. The Pixel 7a is tipped to go on sale in June with a price tag of around €500 in Europe. That's for the standard 128 GB model, though, as it's currently unknown if the mid-range phone will be available with higher storage configurations.
It's real, there is also a 512 GB variant for the fold!— SnoopyTech (@_snoopytech_) March 14, 2023
Price is probably cheaper tho. https://t.co/6NptRwHVof
