NEW DELHI: Google is likely planning a Pixel foldable smartphone and a new Pro tablet, and the new hardware has been spotted in the Android 13 code.

Within the first in-development build of Android 13 quarterly platform release by Google, developers have spotted a detachable Pixel tablet and the rumoured Pixel foldable.

Developers have spotted "Felix" foldable device, with a 64MP Sony IMX787 primary sensor and a 10.8MP Samsung S5K3J1 telephoto lens on the back of the phone.

The device could also house an 8MP Sony IMX355 sensor (the same one used by the Pixel 6A) on the inside, reports Android Police.

The smartphone could fold horizontally like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold.
?According to developer Kuba Wojciechowski, Google released the first beta for Android 13 QPR1 beta and with it a lot of updated code.

It includes "new camera drivers, revealing some details about their upcoming products. I have found some details about a yet-unknown foldable, another tablet and more," he posted in a tweet.

"As of now, we know about two foldable devices from Google - passport and pipit," he said.

The first one has been canceled, but the status of the other one was unknown.

"Recently we've heard that the display production for their foldable would start in 4 months," said the developer.

Goggle was yet to make any comment. The company will hold a Pixel 7 launch event on October 6.
