Google has announced the Pixel Fold, the company’s first foldable phone and a chance for Google to show off exactly what a foldable phone can offer. There’s no avoiding the high price tag, but this is a premium phone, packed with features and great hardware – and Google’s advantage of being top of the line when it comes to of updates.
For those considering the Pixel Fold, it’s currently up for pre-order and as an incentive for those in the US, UK and Germany you can get a free Pixel Watch.
Folding Google Pixel
This Pixel Fold pre-order deal will get you a free Pixel Watch worth $359 and will be an ideal pairing with the latest Google phone.
The Google Pixel Fold offers a 7.6-inch internal display, giving you plenty of space to get creative just to enjoy your content, while it’s complemented by a 5.8-inch external display, designed to come in handy when the phone is folded.
However, the offer of a Pixel Watch makes perfect sense. It’s an ideal companion for your new foldable phone, allowing you to interact, accept or reject calls, check your notifications or control your music, without having to take the phone out of your pocket.
The Pixel Watch is one of the most popular Wear OS devices, receiving rave reviews and offering all that connectivity with your phone, Fitbit features, sleek design and more.
However, there’s no avoiding the Pixel Fold being an expensive phone. Priced at $1,800 (£1,750), it sits right at the top of the prices of foldable phones that have launched so far – more expensive than Samsung’s rival offering, which is, admittedly, a bit older now . So the offer of a free Pixel Watch might just be the incentive you need to dive in with the Pixel Fold, a complementary pairing that will work well together.
The Google Pixel Fold was announced during Google I/O on May 10, 2023 and will be available in the US, UK, Germany and Japan. It will be available in Obsidian and Porcelain colors, with Gorilla Glass Victus protection for the front and back of the phone, a stainless steel hinge mechanism and an aluminum frame.
The Pixel Watch features a 1.2-inch AMOLED display and comes in a 41mm stainless steel body with gold, black, or silver. It is waterproof up to 5ATM and offers wireless charging, contactless payments and much more.
The Pixel Fold’s ship date is yet to be confirmed, but we’ll update as soon as we hear it. We’ll also update the terms and conditions for the Pixel Watch free pre-order offer as we find out.
