Developers have uncovered code that hints at a Pixel foldable and a new 'Pro' tablet in the first Android 13 quarterly platform release beta. The foldable Pixel is codenamed 'Felix' and it may include a 64-megapixel Sony primary sensor and a 10.8-megapixel Samsung telephoto lens on the back of the phone. The device folds horizontally similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold. The Pro tablet is codenamed 't6pro' or 'tangorpro'. Google confirmed an Android-powered tablet in May, but the 'pro' moniker indicates that it is working on a higher-end version of the tablet too.
