Last year, Google entered the foldable phone market with the announcement of the Google Pixel Fold in May 2023. This year, the brand is expected to unveil its successor, the Pixel Fold 2.

According to the report, an anonymous source said that Google has been conducting internal testing of the Pixel Fold 2 for the past few months. It was revealed that the chipset used to power the Pixel Fold 2 prototypes is codenamed “zumapro”. For those who don’t know, the Tensor G3 chip used in the Pixel 8 series is codenamed “zuma”. Thus, it appears that the zumapro chip powering the next generation of folding screens may be a Tensor G4. Recall that the original Pixel Fold 2 is equipped with a Tensor G2 chip.

The Tensor G4 will be manufactured by Samsung and is said to be powered by ARM Cortex-X4, A720 and A520 processor cores. The Pixel Fold has 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, while the Pixel Fold 2 seems to be a more powerful device as it has 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 4.0 storage. It is likely to also feature the rumored Pixel AI assistant.

The report says that Pixel Fold 2 is currently in the Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage. This means that the mass production stage may be several months away. Google is expected to unveil the Pixel 9 and 9 Pro in October this year. Both phones are expected to be equipped with the Tensor G4 chip. Now that it has been revealed that the Pixel Fold 2 also has the same chip, it is likely that it could hit the market alongside the Pixel 9 series.
