Ahead of I/O 2023, Google stealth-announced the Pixel Fold via a tweet.
While it’s exciting the long-rumoured foldable smartphone actually exists, unfortunately, it won’t be available in Canada at launch. Google told MobileSyrup that this device won’t release in the Canada, so if you’re looking forward to the foldable, you’ll need head south of the border.

On stage at I/O, Google confirmed the Pixel Fold will arrive with the Tensor G2 SoC, 12 GB of RAM, IPX8 water resistance, and a Gorilla Glass Victus cover display.
