Google is pretty horrible at keeping secrets.
After nearly all the details about the company’s upcoming Google Pixel 7a and the Pixel Fold were leaked ahead of time, Google actually revealed the Pixel Fold in a tweet.
Now, just hours away from the company’s Google I/O 2023 event, a 2:37 minute ad (via 9to5Google(opens in a new tab)) gives us an even more detailed look at the devices Google will officially launch today, including the Pixel Fold.
The NBA’s star-studded announcement is titled “The Greatest Watch Party: Google Pixel x NBA,” and it probably should have been set to private (it was instead just unlisted) until the end of the event.
The design of the Pixel Fold, clearly visible from all sides in several places in the video, has already been revealed, but we noticed some additional details in the new video. For example, the Fold’s inner bezel actually looks better in the ad, as we can now clearly see that it’s highly reflective instead of just black. We regret to inform you that the big bezels on the outer display don’t look any smaller, however.
We also see a cool photo-editing trick performed on the Fold, in which an object is removed from a photo with the flick of a finger, as well as a video call on a half-unfolded Fold, with the video in the upper half and the video controls in the lower half of the screen.
Google’s new mid-range phone, the Pixel 7a, also makes an appearance in the video. The Pixel tablet, which should also arrive today, however, is nowhere to be found.
Google I/O is scheduled to start at 1 p.m. ET on Wednesday, May 10. Here’s how to watch it.
