Google’s foldable phone “Pipit” on Geekbench Listing
According to the Geekbench listing, a Google Pixel foldable phone dubbed Pipit is in the works. The foldable could be released under the Pixel name. While the name has not been confirmed, the specifications have. The Google Pipit has an octa-core processor with a top clock speed of 2.8GHz, according to the Geekbench 4 listing. The processor on the gadget has a base clock speed of 1.8GHz. A Mali G78 GPU is included. Based on these specifications, we believe the chipset is Google's recently released Tensor. Two of the SoC's cores are clocked at 2.8GHz, while the other two are clocked at 2.25GHz. At 1.8GHz, there are four efficiency cores.
The listing also discloses that the Google foldable phone has a total of 12GB of RAM. The foldable phone is said to have 256GB or 512GB of internal storage. It comes pre-installed with Android 12. Google has unveiled Android 12L, which is designed for devices with large screens or foldable phones. We may expect the same from "Pipit."
According to sources, the Google Pixel Fold was canceled because the firm believed it would be too difficult to thrive in the market owing to fierce competition. However, it appears that Google intends to work on the launch. There hasn't been any official news yet, so we'll have to wait for further information in the following days.
