A major Google Pixel device roadmap has just leaked and now reveals every smartphone the company has planned from 2023 to 2025. It starts next year with the Pixel 7a (codename “Lynx”) and the Pixel Fold (codename “Felix”). Google will present both cell phones around the Google I/O in May.
Google Pixel 7a, Pixel Fold
The Pixel 7a is said to be priced exactly the same as the Pixel 6a, which is $449 in the US. In addition to support for wireless charging, the Pixel 7a will likely also get a display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The Pixel Fold, on the other hand, will be the most expensive Pixel device ever at $1,799.

Later in 2023, the Pixel 8 will launch with slightly smaller dimensions than the Pixel 7. The Pixel 8 Pro, on the other hand, should keep the same screen size as the Pixel 7 Pro. Both are powered by a new chipset likely to be marketed as the Tensor G3. That being said, the Pixel 8 duo won’t feature many differences compared to its predecessors.

In 2024 the plan is to launch the Pixel 8a. However, that depends on the sales success of the Pixel 7a – if this does not happen, there will not be a Pixel 9a until 2025. But when the Pixel 8a launches, it will cost $499, $50 more than its predecessor.
Compact Google Pixel 9 Pro
The Pixel 9 series will have three members: The Pixel 9 is expected to keep the smaller size of the Pixel 8. The Pixel 9 Pro comes in at around 6.7 inches and is accompanied by another Pro with the same features but a more compact 6.3 inches. Google clearly copied this strategy from Apple – a compact iPhone 14 Pro and a large iPhone 14 Pro Max. Of course, all three new phones are powered by a new chipset, the Tensor G4.
Google Pixel Flip
There will also be a new foldable in 2024, but not much is known about it yet. There is some speculation that Google is waiting to see how well the 2023 Pixel Fold performs. The company could then go in different directions for 2025, depending on how successful the strategy is for 2023 and 2024. Google is also apparently toying with the idea of a flip foldable. The Pixel Flip could be launched in autumn 2025 along with the three normal Pixel smartphones.
If the flip phone doesn’t come, four normal Pixel phones will come onto the market – two normal in small and large and two Pro models in small and large. Exactly the portfolio that Apple has been offering its customers since this year.
All of this information reportedly comes from a trusted source and has allegedly been thoroughly verified. But even if these are 100% Google’s plans at the moment, plans can change at any time. Especially when they reach that far into the future.
