Google is not like the secret. An internal document already reveals more about the Pixel 6, Pixel 5a and other interesting plans of the company.
Google has big plans for the next year and a half, despite the home office and other adversities. An internal document is said to have emerged revealing more about plans for Google’s upcoming smartphones. Of course, manufacturers like Google plan their strategies and developments in advance, allocate resources, and commission production facilities. So by mid-2020 it may already be clear what the whole of next year will be like at Google.
In this document, according to the exclusive report by 9to5Google, several new Android smartphones are named and canceled for the near future. We could imagine part of it based on the recent past, surprising other devices. “Raven” and “Oriole” are likely code names for the new Pixel 6 smartphones that are planned for Q4 2021. That would be the return of two different variants of a model generation after the Pixel 5.
Google wants foldable pixel smartphones
“Passport” is the internal name of a folding smartphone that is actually described as such in the document. That is the biggest surprise. There have been reports of pixel folding, but so far no more hardware hints from the planned end customer. Google would only be there with its first foldable two years after Motorola, Huawei and Samsung, but until then with more sophisticated technology.
In the document, Google also mentions the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 for this fall, as well as the Pixel 5a for the second quarter of 2021.
Hours are currently very flexible
This would give us a rough overview of what Google’s smartphone plans look like until the end of next year. We will have to wait and see if these come true. In much of Western markets, Google is still at headquarters for a long time, making the job extremely difficult. Google already had serious problems with the Pixel 4a when the pandemic had already subsided in some parts of the world. So far we cannot predict what will happen in the fall or next year.
