Google is preparing to launch a new foldable phone, tentatively called the “Pixel 9 Pro Fold”, which is expected to be the next foldable in the line, instead of the previously expected “Fold 2”.

According to details obtained by Android AuthorityGoogle has revamped its naming strategy for late 2024 Pixel devices:

  • Pixel 9: codenamed 'tokay'
  • Pixel 9 Pro: codenamed 'alligator'
  • Pixel 9 Pro XL: codenamed 'komodo'
  • Pixel 9 Pro Fold: codenamed 'comet'

These names have been validated by certain software designed for Google 2024 devices. Previously, Google referred to the device codenamed “comet” as “Pixel Fold 2”. However, it is noted that the name “Pixel 9 Pro Fold” may not be final, according to the report.

If Google continues with this naming convention and integrates the next foldable into the Pixel 9 series, it would represent a significant departure from the first-generation Pixel Fold.

Integration of Foldables in the Pixel family

The integration of the next foldable in the Pixel 9 series would mark a notable change from the first Pixel Fold, which disappointed users at its launch in 2023.

Google's possible inclusion of the new foldable in its flagship line, along with a new Tensor G4 chip, aims to correct the problems faced by the original Pixel Fold. The leaked images suggest a design more in line with other Pixel 9 devices.

This strategy would set Google apart as the only manufacturer to integrate foldable phones into its core product range, rather than treating them as a separate category. This change could position the foldable as a core offering in the Pixel line, rather than a niche and expensive alternative.

Release date?

If all goes according to plan, Google could announce four smartphones in October: Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, Pixel 9 Pro XL and Pixel 9 Pro Fold, and all these devices are expected to contain the upcoming Tensor G4 SoC.

Although the switch from Pixel Fold 2 to Pixel 9 Pro Fold happened recently in internal communications, the report warned that the details could change before the launch.

More information is likely to emerge as the release date nears later this year.
