The company is expected to launch the Google Pixel Fold and the Google Pixel 7A smartphone in the coming months. Now, Android Authority has revealed Google’s roadmap for the next couple of years. A new report by the publication sheds some light on Google’s upcoming launches including the Google Pixel Fold, Pixel 8a, as well as Pixel 9 series.

Google Pixel Fold

The report suggests that the Goole Pixel Fold is codenamed felix and will be showcased during the Google I/O 2023. The report suggests that Google will use the moniker Google Pixel Fold for marketing. Whereas, internally, it is being referred to as Pixel Notepad.

Google Pixel 7A

The Google Pixel 7a is codenamed lynx and will debut alongside the Pixel Fold during the Google I/O 2023. Google will keep the pricing of the Google Pixel 7a the same as its predecessor – the Pixel 6a. This means that the upcoming Pixel 7a will cost $449. The upcoming smartphone is tipped to feature a 90Hz refresh rate display and support wireless charging.

Google Pixel 8 Series

Google will launch the Pixel 8 series in 2023. The lineup will include two smartphones – the Pixel 8 (codename shiba) and the Pixel 8 Pro (codename husky) respectively. The Pixel 8 series smartphones will be powered by the Tensor G3 processor, which is codenamed zuma.

Google Pixel 8A’s Fate Will Depend on Pixel 7A

Google Pixel 8a is codenamed akita and might be priced at $499 at launch. The report suggests that Google is skeptical about the Pixel 8a launch and the company’s final decision will depend on the Pixel 7a sales numbers. Google might also go with a 2-year launch cycle for the a-series going forward, similar to what Apple follows for the SE lineup.

Google Pixel 9 Series Might Include a Compact Pro-grade Model

The Google Pixel 9 series will launch in 2024 and might include three smartphones. In addition to a vanilla and a Pro smartphone, the Pixel 9 series will reportedly include a compact Pro variant. The Google Pixel 9 Pro is said to offer a 6.7-inch display and is codenamed komodo. The smaller Pro-level model will reportedly offer a 6.3-inch display and is codenamed caiman. Google caiman will feature exactly the same specifications as that of the komodo.

All three Pixel 9 series smartphones will be powered by the Tensor G4 chipset which is codenamed redondo.

Google Pixels in 2025

Google’s roadmap for 2025 will hugely depend on the performance of the Pixel devices launched in 2023 and 2024. The company does have a plan to enter into the clamshell foldable segment in 2025. However, if the Google Pixel foldables don’t do well in 2023 and 2024, Google will launch three smartphones under the Pixel 10 series, similar to the Pixel 9 series.
