According to a report by The Elec, Google has delayed the launch of its foldable smartphone for the second time. The report added that people familiar with the matter state that the company is delaying the launch of the smartphone as it is not as complete as Google wishes it to be.

Google was earlier expected to showcase its foldable smartphone in the fourth quarter last year after the company had delayed its launch from late-2021. Now, according to a tweet from Ross Young, Chief Executive Officer of Display Supple Chain Consultants, multiple sources have said that the launch of the Google foldable smartphone has been delayed till next spring.

It was reported in January that Google's foldable smartphone has been given the working title Pixel Notepad. The report also said that Google had also considered “Logbook” for the smartphone's name. It was said that the phone would come in a form factor similar to the Oppo Find N. The foldable phone is also rumoured to sport the same Google Tensor SoC from the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
