It appears that the Google Pixel lineup is set to undergo some changes in the coming years. According to an anonymous but trustworthy source, the company is planning to release two new smartphones in 2023: the budget-friendly Pixel 7a (codenamed “lynx”) and the foldable Pixel Fold (codenamed “felix”).
The Pixel 7a is expected to have a $449 price tag and potentially feature wireless charging and a 90Hz refresh rate, while the Pixel Fold is expected to retail for $1,799 and compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold series.
Later in 2023, Google is expected to release the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro (codenamed “shiba” and “husky,” respectively). These phones are not expected to see significant changes compared to the Pixel 7 series, though the Pixel 8 is rumored to have a smaller form factor.
In 2024, Google may release a Pixel 8a (codenamed “akita”), though this is dependent on the sales of the Pixel 7a. If released, the Pixel 8a is expected to have a $499 price tag.
In addition to these releases, Google is reportedly considering moving away from annual launches for its “A series” phones and instead launching new models every two years, similar to Apple’s iPhone SE series. The company is also rumored to be working on a new foldable smartphone for 2024, though no details about this device have been revealed yet.
Finally, in 2025, Google is expected to release a new “Pixel flip” smartphone, though no further information about this device is available at this time.
