Google is finally entering the foldable game with the Pixel Fold, which is due to hit shelves this summer.
The new book-style foldable will be big competition to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 in the West and should have an excellent camera that the Pixel line is typically known for – you can read up on the specs of the Pixel Fold here.
If you want to know when you can get your hands on Google’s first ever foldable phone, then we have everything you need to know. We also have a buying guide for the mid-range phone, the Pixel 7a.
What is the release date for the Pixel Fold?
Pre-orders for the Pixel Fold are open now, but the shipping date has been pushed back in the US and UK. Originally, the phone was due to ship on 27 June 2023.
In the US, stores are now showing the phone as the phone shipping from 18 July 2023. If you ordered the phone on launch, then Google may still honour close to the original date – Reddit shows that some customers have been told that they’ll be receiving the phone by the end of June.
If you’re in the UK, then bad luck – the Pixel Fold is currently listed as shipping on 22 August 2023.
We will be keeping an eye on shipping dates and will update this article when we know more.
