Google has finally lifted the veil off its first foldable phone. Unfortunately, Google Pixel Fold preorders are being delayed by Google with dates pushed as far back as July 7. In fact, if you try to preorder via the Google Store you'll note shipments pushed back into the first week of August. The device was originally slated to ship in June. 

Announced alongside the Pixel 7a, the new Pixel Fold costs $1,799. It's Google's latest flagship phone sporting a 7.6-inch internal display and a 5.8-inch outer display. When closed, its exterior screen will let you respond to messages or browse Chrome. When opened, the larger screen provides a more immersive, tablet-like experience for streaming shows or playing games. The Pixel Fold's design also lets you use the device in tabletop mode, so you can sit back and relax while you watch or record content — all without the help of a tripod. 

Note that AT&T, Verizon, and the Google Store are now offering Pixel Fold preorders. In the coming days, we could see more preorder deals from both carriers and retailers alike. We'll update this page with the latest deals as they're announced. Don't forget to take advantage of Google's excellent trade-in bonuses too.

The Pixel Fold is unlike any other Pixel phone. Like its Galaxy Z Fold 4 rival, the Pixel Fold unfolds in a book-like fashion. But the similarities end there. Google claims the Pixel Fold has the thinnest profile of any foldable. It measures just 6.2 x 5.5 x 0.2 inches when open (158.7 x 139.7 x 5.8 mm), whereas the Galaxy Z Fold 4 measures 6.11 x 5.12 x 0.25 inches (155.1 x 130.1 x 6.3 mm). When closed, the Pixel Fold is 5.5 x 3.1 x 0.5 inches compared to 6.1 x 2.6 x 0.55-0.62 inches for the Z Fold 4. 

The Pixel Fold's front display also stands out amongst the competition. The 5.8-inch OLED cover display uses a fairly wide aspect ratio of 17.4:9 (compared to 21.6:18 for Samsung), which makes for a less cramped experience when using the device closed. The always-on OLED panel also supports up to a 120Hz refresh rate. The fuller 7.6-inch display has a resolution of 2208 x 1840 pixels and also goes up to 120Hz refresh.  

With 4th of July sales around the corner, there's a small chance we'll see more Pixel Fold preorder deals in the days to come. Make sure to follow our coverage for the latest deals.
