Google's Pixel roadmap for 2023 to 2025 might have been revealed.

According to Android Authority, an anonymous yet trustworthy source shared the extensive Pixel roadmap which has some aspects confirmed.

Starting with the first half of 2023, you can expect two Pixel phones with codenames "lynx" and "felix" to launch in April or May. They are likely to be unveiled at the annual Google I/O conference. The two Pixel phones are the Pixel 7a and Pixel Fold.

Google is not expected to increase the price of the Pixel 7a and it will be in line with the launch price of the Pixel 6a. Rumoured specs of the Pixel 7a include a 90Hz 1080p display, IMX787 primary camera sensor, IMX712 ultra-wide lens, and 5W wireless charging. 

As for the Pixel Fold, the source made a similar claim that Google's first foldable phone will be priced at $1,799. Earlier this month, Tipster @OnLeaks and howtoisolve revealed the design, specs and launch date of the Pixel Fold.

The second half of 2023 will see the debut of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. You can expect minor updates to the Pixel 8 lineup, but the source says the design of the Pixel 8 phone will be smaller than the Pixel 7 counterpart. Both Pixel 8 phones are codenamed "shiba" and "husky".

For 2024, the tentative plan is to launch the Pixel 8a. However, Google is said to be considering to drop the annual refresh cycle for the Pixel A series, and switch to a launch every two years. The Pixel 9  will expand into a three-model lineup, with a Pixel 9, Pixel 9 Pro (codenamed "komodo") and a smaller variant of the Pixel 9 Pro (codenamed "caiman"). There are also plans for a second foldable phone, but Google is likely to see the market reaction to the Pixel Fold before making any decision.

Google is still mulling over several options for the 2025 Pixel lineup. It is rumoured to be planning for a flip-style foldable phone to launch alongside the Pixel 10 series. If the flip-style foldable phone plan falls through, Google is said to introduce four Pixel 10 phones with the base model in two sizes, and the Pro model in two sizes.
