A few days ago, Google released Android 12 Beta 4, which is the last beta of the mobile operating system before the release candidate and then the final. Enthusiasts have already analyzed the Android 12 Beta 4 camera app code and found mention of four promising smartphones of the company in it. Their codenames are Oriole, Raven, Passport, and Slider.
Oriole and Raven are already, one might say, old friends — Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The company partially declassified these models at the very beginning of August. But the passport designation is attributed to a possible model with a folding screen. Moreover, its announcement may take place this fall under the designation Pixel Fold.
According to rumors, the Pixel Fold will be unified with the models of the Pixel 6 line — it will inherit the camera and the Google Tensor hardware platform (which, according to unconfirmed reports, is a renamed Samsung Exynos 9855 single-chip system). If so, then the Pixel Fold will compete with the Mi Mix Fold and the all-new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3.
