Powering it is the Tensor G2 SoC we first saw on the Pixel 7, which will do the duty alongside the Titan M2 co-processor. All of this is aided by 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB or 512GB of internal storage.

Coming to the cameras, the Fold gets a similar triple sensor setup as the Pixel, with a primary 48-megapixel sensor, a 10.8-megapixel 5x telephoto lens and a 0.8-megapixel ultra-wide with 121.1-degree FOV.

Google also claims the Fold’s 4,821mAh battery can last up to 24 hours on a single charge. In case you do need to top-up, the device also supports 30W wired fast charging along with Qi wireless charging.

Coming to safety, the Pixel Fold is IPX8 certified, which allows for water resistance and can withstand submergence up to 1.5m depth, but under certain conditions. While Google is yet to announce the India prices, we expect it to cost around Rs 1.49 lakh mark.
