Pixel Fold first failed in the heat test. The outer panel sustained a spot which didn’t heal by itself.
Furthermore, when the inner display came into contact with flames, the device immediately shut down and took about a minute to turn on.
Google Pixel Fold didn’t survive the bend test as well. Although the hinge managed to hold other parts of both halves couldn’t hold pressure.
The display stopped working immediately. And the device was in no working condition.
