According to the American media, with the Pixel Fold release, you will see the main sensor Sony IMX363 of 12.2 megapixels, well known to Google since it was used from the Pixel 3 to the Pixel 5. It would therefore not take advantage of the 50-megapixel Samsung GN1 sensor introduced on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.

The device would also ship a 12-megapixel IMX386 sensor for the ultra-wide-angle module as well as two 8-megapixel IMX355 sensors.

For the moment, nothing indicates that the front sensor will be placed under the screen, like the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
