You have to give Google some credit. Despite being known for quickly throwing in the towel on projects that fail to garner a fan base quickly, it continues to pump out more hardware than ever before. What began in 2016 with the original Google Pixel — alongside some Chromebook hardware, rest in peace — has blossomed into an ever-growing lineup of smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, and now, foldables. The Pixel Fold has long been a dream for the company — it even canned an earlier iteration after deeming it unsatisfactory. That's not the type of thing most companies will admit, and for a brand that often struggles with first-gen products, it doubles as a big promise.
