Google Pixel Fold spotted out and about in New York

If you want to catch a glimpse at an unreleased phone, one of your best bets is to go on a public transport ride. As luck would have it a Reddit user posted some blurry images of the long-rumored Pixel Fold in the hands of a person riding on the New York City Subway.

Alleged Google Pixel Fold out in the wild

The original poster claims a Google employee is handling the phone in the images and we can catch a glimpse of what appears to be the phone’s cover screen and its noticeable black bezels. Granted only one of the images is clearly visible while the rest could use some of Google’s own Photo Unblur feature. Based on the most up-to-date rumors, Pixel Fold should adopt a similar design to the Oppo Find N2 with a compact cover display and a large folding screen.

Pixel Fold is expected to carry a 7.57-inch foldable panel and a 5.78-inch panel for the cover display made by Samsung Display. Elsewhere, the Pixel Fold is rumored to bring a 4,700 mAh battery. The foldable is also rumored to enter mass production in Q3 and the phone is rumored to cost around $1,800 once it launches. We could realistically see the Pixel Fold announcement at the Google I/O conference which kick off on May 10.
