We’ve heard for years that Google is hard at work on a foldable phone, possibly codenamed Pixel Fold or Pixel Notepad. Leakers originally predicted a fall 2021 release date, then a 2022 release alongside the Pixel 7, and now insist it’ll arrive in early 2023. Should we believe them?

There are ample reasons to be skeptical, as Google itself tends to miss its own deadlines for products. But Google did finally schedule the Pixel Watch after years of delays, so we can hope the Pixel Notepad has a similarly dramatic reveal soon. It just won’t happen in 2022.
