In 2023, lots of foldable phones hit the market, including new ones and updates to existing models. Google introduced its first foldable phone, the Pixel Fold, in May during Google I/O. It runs on Google’s own Tensor G2 chip. Now, there’s talk that the upcoming Pixel Fold 2 might skip the Tensor G3 chip and jump straight to the Tensor G4.

Android Authority suggests that the Pixel Fold will run on the Tensor G4 chip. This chip is likely to be used in the Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro too, set to be released in October. Reports indicate that the Tensor G4 is only a small improvement over the current Tensor G3 chip. Initially, the Pixel Fold sequel was being tested with the Tensor G3 chip, nicknamed “Zuma,” but newer prototypes are now using the “Zuma Pro,” which is the Tensor G4.

Google Pixel Fold 2 to Launch with Tensor G4 Chipset

According to reports, the Pixel Fold 2 is said to come with 16GB of RAM, which is 4GB more than the previous Pixel Fold and the most RAM ever seen in a Google Pixel phone. Additionally, it’s rumored to feature faster UFS 4.0 storage, an upgrade from the UFS 3.1 storage used in the previous Fold and Pixel 8. This increase in RAM aligns with Google’s plans to introduce more on-device AI capabilities through its new AI assistant, Pixie.

While specific details are still scarce, reports suggest that the foldable phone could launch either alongside or shortly after the Pixel 9 series. Stay tuned for updates as we learn more.
