Tipster says Foxconn is producing Pixel Fold/Notepad and Pixel 7 Ultra with 2K display

Written by admin
One of the models being built in China is, according to the tipster, the first foldable Pixel that could be called the Pixel Fold or Pixel Notepad. Recently we told you that hidden code discovered in the Google Camera 8.6 app featured a Pixel Fold/Notepad icon with an arrow showing how to close the device. Powered by Google’s own Tensor chip, the foldable will reportedly come with a 5.85-inch display inside, making the device closer in design to the foldable Oppo Find N than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 with its much larger 7.6-inch internal screen.
The camera array on the Pixel Fold/Notepad is believed to be the same 12.2MP primary camera and 16MP ultra-wide camera used on the Pixel 5 flagship released in 2020.

The other phone that Foxconn is reportedly working on is a new flagship that could be known as the Pixel 7 Ultra, which will have a Sony IMX787 image sensor. That particular sensor is not listed as one of the four expected to be used in the Pixel 7 series. The IMX787 is used in conjunction with a “sub-camera”, although it’s not clear what that means.

You might think this means the sensor will drive a periscope-based telephoto camera. After all, there is one in the Pixel 6 Pro. But Digital Chat Station says the Pixel 7 Ultra’s telephoto camera will use a 50MP sensor from Samsung, the ISOCELL GN1. This is the same sensor we should find on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.

The tipster says a tech sample of the Pixel 7 Ultra has a 2K display and ceramic body. Even with Digital Chat Station’s track record, we have to see these two phones before we can believe it. A Pixel 7 Ultra sounds more exciting to this writer than a Pixel Fold/Notepad. Does it work with a Pixel pen? Right now the sky is the limit as you daydream about the features and specs we can find with such a device.
