The next Google Pixel foldable smartphone is coming this year, and it’s expected to offer improved multitasking and more. This information comes from Mishaal Rahman who shared it via Android Authority.

The next Pixel foldable phone will offer improved multitasking & new display aspect ratio

Mishaal spotted some changes in the Android 14 QPR2 code, which suggests we’re in for a treat. Users will seemingly be able to put apps side-by-side even when the device is in portrait mode.

Next Google Pixel Fold device to offer improved multitasking

Many Pixel Fold users were missing this feature, us included. It’s nice to see that Google is planning to finally put it on the table. That foldable is also coming with a new display resolution, at least for its main screen.

The device, which is rumored to be called the Pixel 9 Pro Fold for whatever reason, is expected to offer a 2076 x 2152 resolution. As a reminder, the Pixel Fold has a 2208 x 1840 resolution on the main screen. Google is definitely looking to change the aspect ratio.

The upcoming foldable from the company will have a more squarish main display than the first-gen model. Well, at least based on this information. Now, in regards to the name.

This foldable phone could be called the Pixel 9 Pro Fold, for better or worse

This information surfaced back in April. Google is allegedly planning to name the device the Pixel 9 Pro Fold, to keep things uniform. The Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, and Pixel 9 Pro XL are coming. So, the Pixel 9 Pro Fold name kind of falls in line here.

It is a mouthful, and quite frankly it’s not our favorite, but it does fit here. The Pixel Fold 2 would still make a lot more sense, but we can see why Google could make this change.

Now, the Pixel 9 series is coming on August 13. Google decided to host that event two months early this time around, for whatever reason. The event was expected to take place in early October, as per usual.

Google already confirmed that Pixel phones are coming. We’re sure that the Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro, and Pixel 9 Pro XL are coming… but we’re still not sure about the foldable device. It probably is, but it remains to be seen.
