Who said that only Samsung and Huawei have any idea of how to build powerful foldable smartphones? Google has jumped on the bandwagon as well due to its new Google Pixel Fold that came out back in June.
Surprisingly or not, we still have a lot to learn about the capabilities of the Google Pixel Fold. The device is powered by the Tensor G2 processor, which was also created by Google. It’s a bit surprising that the Mountain View-based tech giant didn’t choose a Snapdragon processor instead.
Pixel Fold’s spatial audio is similar to that of Pixel 7
Similar to the functionality present in the Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 series, the Pixel Fold showcases the capability to deliver spatial audio through wired headphones. However, setting itself apart from its predecessors, the Pixel Fold takes a step further by introducing the novel feature of spatial audio not only through traditional headphones but also through the phone’s own built-in speaker system.
The Pixel Fold supports spatial audio over wired headphones just like the Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 series do, but unlike those devices, it also supports spatial audio over the phone speaker!
