Foldable Google Pixel and a ‘Pro’ tablet hinted at in Android 13 code


Google just rolled out the first beta of the Android 13 quarterly platform, and developers have already uncovered some code that hints at a pair of upcoming devices: the rumored foldable Pixel and a new “Pro” tablet (Going through android font).

In a thread on Twitter, developer Kuba Wojciechowski shares screenshots of code referencing the unfolded and folded states of a device called “Felix”. It also mentions the cameras used by the device which may include a 64 megapixel (MP) Sony IMX787 main sensor and a 10.8 MP Samsung S5K3J1 telephoto lens on the back of the phone. The device could also house an 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 sensor (the same used by the Pixel 6A) on the inside and another Samsung S5K3J1 on the front.

The foldable’s dual rear camera system backs up claims the device could fold horizontally like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold. Last year it looked like Google was also working on a device that folds like a clamshell, but animations found in Android 12L and an icon in the Google camera app point to a phone that folds like a book.

In addition to digging up details about Google’s next foldable, Wojciechowski also spotted references to a “Pro” tablet, called “t6pro” or “tangorpro.” Google confirmed it was working on an Android tablet at I/O in May, and the developers have since understood that “t6” and “tangor” refer to the device. But now that we see the “pro” moniker attached to these codenames, it could indicate that Google is also working on a high-end version of the tablet. As underlined by 9to5Googlethe code doesn’t reveal much other than the fact that the two devices will use different rear cameras.

These results come just under a month away from Google’s Pixel launch event on October 6, where we’ll see the debut of the Pixel 7, Pixel Watch and new Nest devices. We don’t expect to see the rumored tablet or foldable at the event, though – the Pixel tablet isn’t supposed to release until 2023, and rumors suggest the foldable Pixel has been delayed until next year.
