Considering the number of leaks and rumors we’ve seen at this point, the announcement of a foldable Google Pixel phone is almost certain, although a reliable tipster has suggested that it won’t be all. Now there are indications that the Google Pixel Roll may be announced sometime in the future, though we shouldn’t expect to see it before 2022.
Ross Young, User @DSCCRoss on Twitter, made two comments earlier this week. one that suggests that a Pixel may be on the roll card (but we shouldn’t expect it in the next 12 months) and Another confirms that the Pixel Fold is a separate device Which should come at the end of 2021.
Like all leaks, we have to take them with a grain of salt, but if that’s true we could see Google expanding its smartphone lineup in the coming years.
The Pixel Roll has such a nice ring. It’s in our forecast, but it’s not expected in the next 12 months…June 7, 2021

How will Pixel Roll work?
This is the first time we’ve heard of the Google Pixel Roll, so we don’t have a solid idea of what it’ll look like. But, based on previous rollable phones, we can tell how the tech-giant is going to pull off a rollable design and where the design might differ from the Pixel Fold.
Unlike other foldable phones, the rollable phone aims to deliver the big screen experience without any noticeable bumps, creases or streaks that can distract from your experience. The video above shows what it looks like in practice, explaining how the Oppo X2021 expands from its smaller size to a bigger screen and then back.
Although this superior experience can be costly. While the Oppo X 2021 is yet to be priced, the unlaunched LG Rollable was set to be priced at $2,359 (about £1,775, AU$3,130). Given Google’s more affordable approach to smartphones, we have to wonder if it’s rolling up its sleeve to deliver a cheaper rollable or if it’s starting to target a more upscale market instead?
We’ll have to wait and see what the Google Pixel Roll looks like to be sure if it even exists at all. As we learn more about the latest smartphone news, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
