Since last year, the Google Pixel Fold leaks have picked up speed and several renders and live images have emerged. But today, thanks to tipster Evan Blass, we get the best look yet at Google’s first foldable. In fact, the pictures look pretty official and accordingly Blass himself speaks of “The real deal”.
The tipster also revealed pretty much all the specs of the Google Pixel Fold, including a 7.6-inch foldable OLED display with a 6:5 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1840 x 2208 pixels (380ppi). The refresh rate is 120 Hz and the peak brightness is 1,450 nits. A plastic layer protects the panel. The 5.8-inch OLED front display has an aspect ratio of 17.4:9 and a resolution of 1,080 x 2,092 pixels (408 ppi). The refresh rate is also at 120Hz, while the peak brightness hits 1,550 nits. On the front there is additional Gorilla Glass Victus protection.

Blass also commented on the camera setup of the first Google foldable, which is led by a 48 megapixel wide camera with 0.8 μm pixels, a 1/2-inch sensor, an f/1.7 aperture and an field of view of 82 degrees. The ultra-wide camera resolves 10.8 megapixels with 1.25 μm pixels on a 1/3-inch sensor. The aperture reaches f/2.2 and the field of view is 121.1 degrees.
