The Google Pixel Fold may sport a Tensor processor and the Pixel 6 camera
Yesterday, a code string in the new Google Camera app in Android 12 beta 4 hinted at a 50MP Samsung camera that may serve as the main shooter of the upcoming Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones.

When the developer parsed the same code, Samsung Exynos 5G modem references appeared for no less than four upcoming device from Google: "Oriole, Raven, Passport, "Slider" are 4 out of 5 devices that have a modem referenced as "g5123b," tweeted cstark27, a GCam modder.

So far, so good, Oriole and Raven are the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro internal codenames over at Google, and they will apparently carry a 5G modem made by Samsung, rounding up the Koreans' near-takeover of the Pixel 6 specs sheet.

The mysterious Google Passport, however, is reportedly used to indicate none other than the elusive Google Pixel Fold bendy phone that has been making the rounds for a while now, with industry and display analysts slating it for a fall release. It, too, will have a significant Samsung presence, as the foldable display, and obviously the 5G modem, will reportedly be made by Samsung, too.

Does the modem choice mean it will also have a Google Tensor chipset inside, like the Pixel 6 series? And, more importantly, could it have the Pixel 6 camera set that Tensor was designed to manage? Could the Pixel Fold have the Z Fold 3 beat in the camera department then? All pressing questions which will remain a mystery before the first credible leaks from the Google labs and conveyor belts. 

As for the remaining Google Pixel "Slider," that's anyone's guess yet we hope such a loaded name is not used for the Pixel 5a which is about to be unveiled very soon but something more exotic.
