Let’s start with the biggest news first. The Pixel Fold’s potential specs have surfaced online. The leak indicates that the Fold will sport 12GB of RAM, a Tensor G2 chip with the Titan M2 security chip. As for dimensions, the handset will apparently feature an outer 5.8-inch FHD+ OLED display with a 2092 x 1080 pixel resolution. The inner, foldable display sits at 7.6 inches with ultra-thin glass protected by plastic.

The leak also suggests the handset features a 48-megapixel main sensor with an f/1.7 aperture, as well as a selfie camera with a 9.5-megapixel sensor.

Another leak details the potential launch and availability dates of the Pixel Fold, Pixel 7a and Pixel Tablet. Leaker Jon Prosser says the Fold will be announced on May 10th, and pre-orders open from Google the same day. However, the rumors suggest the Fold won’t have carrier pre-orders until May 30th and will launch on June 27th. The leaker indicates the handset will cost $1,799 USD (about $2,411.72 CAD).

The Pixel 7a will also come in ‘Charcoal,’ ‘Snow,’ and ‘Sea (light blue),’ and the Google Store will have an exclusive ‘Coral’ variant. The handset will be available for purchase on May 10th. The Pixel Tablet will launch with Tensor G2, Android 13, with 8GB of RAM. It will also sport two storage configurations.

The Pixel Fold will reportedly have the “most durable hinge on a foldable.” CNBC also reports that Google will announce the Fold at I/O 2023 on May 10th. The publication goes on to detail the specifications of the Pixel Fold. The foldable has water resistance, a 5.8-inch external screen and will open like a book to reveal a 7.6-inch display like the Z Fold 4. The Pixel Fold will also weigh about 10oz (about 283.5g) and will have a larger battery than the Z Fold 4, which Google says will last 24 hours.

The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus will reportedly feature frosted glass similar to the Pro models, according to a Weibo user. The frosted glass would make the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus look more similar to the Pro models.

The iPhone 15 Pro is to continue with the Action button, according to a leak from this past week.

The leaker indicates that the iPhone 15 Pro’s Action button is going ahead as planned, despite other rumours.

Alongside all these details, the leaker indicates the Action button will be force-sensitive, similar to 3D touch, so it can understand if you’re tapping it, pressing it lightly or hard.
