Google Pixel Fold stops by the FCC en route to launch
The Google Pixel Fold, Google’s first foldable phone, is expected to be showcased at the upcoming Google I/O event. Recently, FCC documents about the Google Pixel Fold with the ID number A9RG9FPL were made public. These documents reveal that the device has been tested for LTE and 5G network bands, as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, and UWB. The device supports millimeter waves, which will allow it to connect to cellular networks and enable features such as acting as a keyfob and mobile payments.
The tech industry has been buzzing with rumors about Google’s upcoming foldable smartphone, the Google Pixel Fold, for months. Now, it appears that the launch of the highly anticipated device is imminent. The latest indication of this comes from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which recently published documents related to the Pixel Fold’s certification process.
Particular unit examined for specific area radiation
This unit was examined for specific area radiation on the following spectrum:
LTE Bands: 2, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 14, 17, 25, 26, 30, 38, 41, 48, 66, 71 5G NR Bands: n2, n5, n7, n12, n14, n25, n30, n38, n41, n48, n66, n71, n77, n258, n260, n261 Wi-Fi: 2.4GHz, 5GHz, 5.8GHz, 6GHz Others: Bluetooth, NFC, UWB (65GHz, 80GHz)
From a US perspective, Google Pixel Fold should hit a lot of the network bands at AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and US Cellular.
The FCC documents also indicate that the Google Pixel Fold is a foldable device, as noted in the Hearing Aid Compatibility T-Coil Test Report. Interestingly, the device was tested in both its closed and open formations to meet HAC T-Coil specification requirements. However, the FCC has granted Google confidentiality on other documents related to the Pixel Fold.
