Google’s Android 13 code hints at foldable Pixel device and ‘Pro’ tablet



The first quarterly Android 13 platform beta has been rolled out by US tech giant Google and developers have already discovered code that hints at a pair of upcoming devices.

According to The Verge, these devices include the rumored foldable Pixel and a new “Pro” tablet. In a Twitter thread, developer Kuba Wojciechowski shared screenshots of code referencing the unfolded and folded states of a device called “Felix”.

The cameras used by the device have also been mentioned. These include a 64 megapixel (MP) Sony IMX787 main sensor and a 10.8 MP Samsung S5K3J1 telephoto lens on the back of the phone.

The device could also house an 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 sensor on the inside and another Samsung S5K3J1 on the front. The foldable’s dual rear camera system backs up claims that the device could fold horizontally like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold, The Verge reported.

Last year it looked like Google was also working on a device that folds like a clamshell, but animations found in Android 12L and an icon in Google’s camera app point to a phone that folds like a book.

In addition to digging up details about Google’s next foldable, Wojciechowski also spotted references to a “Pro” tablet, called “t6pro” or “tangorpro.”

At I/O in May, Google confirmed that it ran on an Android tablet, and the developers understood that “t6” and “tangor” refer to the device.

However, now that the “pro” moniker is attached to these codenames, it could indicate that Google is also working on a high-end version of the tablet, according to The Verge.
