Google has just released its Pixel 4a this week, at the same time that it has been almost confirmed that a model compatible with 5G networks and the Pixel 5 will hit the market before 2020 comes to an end. However, these are not the only mobile phones the internet giant is currently working on.
In the last hours, a document has been leaked that talks about an advanced development of the Google Pixel 5a, a long-awaited model since it would be logical that it should come out next year as Google’s mid-range for 2020. However, the surprise comes confirming that the manufacturer also wants to fully enter the folding mobile phone market.
New Google Pixel for 2021
9to5Google is the medium that has found an internal Google document containing a list of Android builds for all Pixel devices . Here are included the Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5, the models that the brand has launched and will launch this 2020, but the list also includes a future Pixel 5a and three other unannounced devices.
The other three devices are codenamed raven , oriole, and passport respectively, and the medium says the latter device is specifically identified as foldable . The other two devices that appear in the list would be the Pixel 6 series phones since both, together with the hypothetical flexible screen mobile, are accompanied by the identification “Q4 2021”, which would apparently be its launch window.
This would not be the first time that we found out that Google works on a mobile with a flexible screen since last year clues were given about it. The head of the Google Pixel line, Mario Queiroz, confirmed last year that they were creating a prototype that mimics the design of the top of the range Samsung and Huawei. What remains to be seen is whether Google would also enter the same price range, since today the cost of manufacturing and selling this type of mobile is far from most pockets.
For now there are no more clues about the characteristics or design of the hypothetical folding Google Pixel beyond knowing its existence. If you really see the light at the end of next year, it is quite likely that in just a few months information from the device will begin to leak.
