A report from this week suggests that Google will not name its next foldable Fold 2 but rather go with Pixel 9 Pro Fold. Whichever name Google chooses, this device could make its debut at Google’s annual hardware unveiling event this October, and not at Google I/O in May like its predecessor. It’s likely that we’ll also see the Pixel 9, the Pixel 9 Pro, and the Pixel 9 Pro XL.
