Google Pixel Fold 2 Leaked CAD Renders Hint at Triple Rear Camera Layout, Larger Displays

Mobile

Google Pixel Fold 2 — the purported successor to the first-generation Pixel Fold — renders have been leaked by a tipster, revealing the foldable phone from various angles. These images suggest that unlike the company’s recent Pixel-branded smartphones, the Pixel Fold 2 is unlikely to feature a horizontal camera visor. In addition to the new camera island design, the dimensions of the foldable phone’s inner and outer displays are also visible in the leaked images of the handset.

Tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer (@OnLeaks) leaked CAD-based renders of the Pixel Fold 2 in collaboration with Smartprix. These images show the inner and outer design of the foldable smartphone in a Charcoal (dark grey) colourway, along with the location of several components including the camera module, buttons, and the USB port.

The most prominent change on the second-generation Pixel Fold is a new camera island that replaces the visor design found on the company’s recent smartphone models including the Pixel 8 and Pixel 7 series. This camera module is shown to feature three cameras and an LED flash.

The Pixel Fold 2 will sport a 6.4-inch outer screen that has rounded corners and a centre-aligned hole punch cutout at the top of the screen for the selfie camera. When unfolded, the phone has a 7.9-inch inner display. The renders indicate the presence of a camera sensor at the top right corner of the inner screen, which is said to house an under-display camera.

The leaked renders also show other, smaller elements including the buttons on the foldable phone. Both the power and volume buttons are found on the right side of the screen, when unfolded. According to the publication, the top edge only contains a speaker grille and an antenna band, while the bottom edge contains a USB Type-C port, another speaker grille, a SIM card slot, and a microphone.

While these are the first leaked renders that give us a detailed look at the purported Pixel Fold 2 from a reputed leaker, it’s worth taking these images with a grain of salt as Google is yet to announce plans to launch a second-generation foldable phone. Previous leaks suggest the handset will run on Android 14, feature Google’s Tensor G4 chip. Google announced the first Pixel Fold in June 2023, so we can expect to hear more details about its purported successor in the coming months.
