The best Google Pixel Fold cases you can buy
The Pixel Fold is one of Google’s most premium — and expensive — smartphones to date, starting at $1,799. To put that into context, that’s about as much as a Les Paul or a cheap used car. That said, the phone is undeniably overflowing with high-end features, and it will receive at least five years of software updates from Google. To make sure it goes the distance, you will want to protect your investment with a proper case. Let’s go over the best Google Pixel Fold cases you can buy to help your Pixel Fold stand the test of time.
The best Google Pixel Fold cases
Official Google Pixel Fold case
Google’s official Pixel Fold case is crafted using a soft polycarbonate, silicone, and microfiber. It will guard your expensive new Pixel Fold against minor drops and scratches, all the while bolstering the device’s aesthetics with a minimal look. Color-wise, it’s available three colors that all look great: Bay, Porcelain, and Hazel. With it being made by Google, you can rest assured that the case will fit snugly and the quality will be top-notch.
Spigen Thin Fit
Spigen makes some of the world’s best smartphone cases, and the Thin Fit for the Google Pixel Fold is an absolute gem of a find. Comprised of scratch-resistant polycarbonate and soft TPU, the case adds an unbelievable amount of in-hand comfort to the Pixel Fold. It’s quite thin, but it will help bolster your phone’s defenses against minor drops and bumps. However, color options are far more limited than Google’s first-party case, since this one only comes in black.
OtterBox Thin Flex Series
Otterbox’s Thin Flex series is a popular option for lots of foldable phones, especially considering the rugged nature of most of their cases. This one is still tested to meet and surpass military standard drop specifications, but it’s also more practical than a bulky case. This hard case with soft grip edges also features antimicrobial properties, but there’s no hinge protection which is a bit of a bummer.

Caseology‘s Parallax line is available for most mainstream smartphones — and for good reason. It offers tremendous protection thanks to its TPU and polycarbonate build, hinge coverage, and an attractive modern aesthetic with that recognizable geometric design on the back. The textured back also offers enhanced grip, so your Pixel Fold doesn’t slip from your hand in the first place.
Spigen Ultra Hybrid
Spigen’s classic clear case, the Ultra Hybrid, is now available for the Pixel Fold silhouette. If you choose wisely with your Google Pixel Fold colorway, you will undoubtedly want to retain most of its original aesthetic. The Ultra Hybrid case from Spigen allows you to do just that, providing extra protection along the way.
Foluu PU Leather case
For something with a bit more style, check out the Foluu PU Leather case for the Pixel Fold. It’s pretty thin and won’t add too much protection, but the PU leather finish adds a nice hand feel that TPU just can’t match. This case is also extremely affordable, typically costing less than $15. That earns it an easy recommendation from us.
Spigen Slim Armor Pro
Spigen’s Slim Armor Pro for the Pixel Fold is a bit more of a rugged option. If you’re prone to dropping your phone, you may want to give this one a longer look. It features dual-layer protection, impact foam technology for an extra layer of shock resistance, Air Cushion Technology, and even hinge protection. This case also doesn’t add an unmanageable amount of bulk, so your phone will still fit in your pocket.
Supcase UB Pro
Supcase makes exceptionally rugged cases, and the UB Pro case for the Pixel Fold is no exception. It really does include everything: A rugged build, an included screen protector, hinge protection, a kickstand, and even an optional belt holster. It does run a bit pricier than other cases on our list, but you can rest assured that your phone will be safe from all but the very gnarliest of drops.
Poetic has joined the Pixel Fold party with their famous Guardian series. This is a bulkier case that adds the utmost protection to your device. It encases the entire Pixel Fold from front to back with an included screen protector, and has a built-in kickstand in the hinge protection area. This is another great pick if you feel like you’re prone to dropping your Pixel Fold a lot and want to protect the front screen as much as possible.
Next up is yet another iconic rugged design from Poetic. The Spartan, like the Guardian, encases the entire Pixel Fold from front to back. The kickstand is located on the read panel instead of the hinge section, though, and the design is slightly different. That said, both cases accomplish the same thing: maximal protection for the Pixel Fold in the event of a drop.
