Google reportedly has a second foldable in the works

According to 9to5Googles sources, Google may be testing a second foldable Pixel smartphone internally. According to 9to5Googles sources, the device is currently in development and codenamed Jumbojack. This refers to a future version Android 12 that 9to5Google calls Android 12.1. 9to5Google also identifies this as Android 12.1.
Although not much information is available about the possible form of Jumbojack, 9to5Google does have some key details. The device appears to have two screens. One that activates when it is folded. This suggests that we are looking at a similar design as Samsung's foldables. These combine an external and internal screen. However, there is no information on internal specs or screen sizes.

A hamburger style design?

There is speculation that the Jumbojack codename may be a reference Jack in the Boxs Jumbo Jack cheeseburger. This implies that the phone will fold hamburgers like a Z Flip and hotdog style like Z Fold. However, this speculation should be taken with a pinch of salt, just like the food.

Jumbojack is not like Passport, which was released in June and was still expected to be available in the second half of 2021. There are no details about when or if Jumbojack will become a commercial product. It is possible that it could be an internal prototype. This will help to build foldable functionality into Android, such as improved multitasking. Its existence indicates that Google is much more serious about folding devices than it first appeared, as the company prepares to launch its first true flagship competitor with its Pixel 6.
