The roadmap of future Google Pixel phones may have leaked. An unknown source states, among other things, that the Pixel 8a will have a smaller screen than its predecessor and that several foldables are planned, including a fold-out model.

An ‘anonymous, but reliable’ source reports to Android Authority that two Pixel devices will appear in April or May 2023, codenamed ‘Lynx’ and ‘Felix’. These are the Pixel 7a and Pixel Fold respectively. The price of the Pixel 7a will reportedly remain the same as the Pixel 6a at $449. In the Benelux, the device costs 459 euros. According to the source, the foldable will have a suggested retail price of $ 1799.

Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro
The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are said to follow later in 2023. The source states that – except for the display – little changes compared to the Pixel 7 series. The display of the Pixel 8, codenamed “Shiba”, may be smaller than its predecessor. How much smaller is not clear. The Pixel 8 Pro, or “Husky,” keeps the same screen dimensions as the Pixel 7 Pro. The silicon for the Pixel 8 series is codenamed ‘Zuma’. It may be the Tensor G3-soc.

Pixel 8a and Pixel 9 series
In 2024, according to Android Authority, the Pixel 8a, the Pixel 9 series and a new foldable are expected. The arrival of the Pixel 8a, codenamed ‘Akita’, may depend on the sales figures of the Pixel 7a. According to the source, Google is considering a similar release schedule as Apple uses with the iPhone SE series, with a new device in the series appearing every two years. The Pixel 8a is reportedly getting a price increase from $449 to $499. It is not known whether and how this translates into the price in euros.

In the fall of 2024, Google is expected to release the Pixel 9 series. For the first time, it would consist of three devices, according to the source. It concerns a vanilla Pixel 9, and two Pro models. These apparently run on the Tensor G4-soc, codenamed ‘Redondo’.

The Pixel 9 is reportedly the same size as the Pixel 8. The device is therefore again smaller than the Pixel 7. One Pixel 9 Pro is codenamed ‘Komodo’ and has a 6.7-inch display. The second Pro device in the series gets a 6.3″ screen. Furthermore, the specs between the two are said to be the same, although they are not yet known. According to the source, Google wants to emulate Apple’s successful strategy in the field of device sizes, according to Android Authority.

More foldables?
It seems that Google is also considering releasing a successor to the Pixel Fold in 2024. No further information is known about it. According to Android Authority, the tech giant may first wait for the reactions to its first foldable.

The release schedule in 2025 for Google might mainly depend on the successes and failures of the previous years. Android Authority says that Google is toying with the idea of ​​a foldable in the style of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip devices. The arrival of this seems to depend on the sales figures of the Pixel Fold and the successor to the foldable.
