The Google Pixel Fold is stopped by the FCC on its way to launch

Ensure network and wireless protocol compatibility

Whatever happens at Google I/O in just nine days, the Pixel Fold is sure to be part of the festivities. As far as we can tell, there’s practically only crumbs we can get from more smart grabs at this point because we already know what Google’s first foldable phone will look like inside and out. However, with some of the FCC documents about the Pixel Fold out in the public eye, we might as well try to extract something new from all of this.

Certification reports and other certification filings for a Google phone with ID number A9RG9FPL have come out from the Bureau of Engineering and Technology (via and @tweet).

This particular unit has been tested 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
  • Other features: Bluetooth, NFC, UWB (65GHz, 80GHz)

From a US perspective, this device should hit many network bands at AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and US Cellular.

Support for millimeter wave here would allow the device to connect to available cellular networks as well as extended close-distance utilities such as acting as a key lock, for mobile payments, and precise positioning.

We have such confidence that this is the Pixel Fold that page 5 of the hearing aid-compatible T-Coil test report (PDF) states that the phone is a “foldable device” in order to show how it was tested to meet the HAC T-Coil specification requirements – interesting We know that it has been tested in both closed and open configurations.

We don’t have a lot of information to pass on since the FCC has given Google a classified dossier on a bunch of other documents that we can’t see here. However, we’ll be able to start off launch day with another whiff from this video of the foldable Pixel Fold from last week.
