Google Pixel Notepad name for the foldable smartphone surfaced earlier this month. Now, a new report from 9to5Google, says that the device will launch at a price tag of $1,399 (Rs. 1,04,650), cheaper than the $1,799 price tag of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3.
Google’s Pixel 6 Pro 12GB + 256GB version that was introduced last year costs $1099, so the company’s foldable device will just be $300 more. In comparison, the Galaxy S21 Ultra 12GB + 256GB model costs $1249.99.
This Pixel Notepad could look similar to OPPO Find N with a smaller screen instead of a taller screen seen in Samsung Galaxy Fold. It is said to be powered by Google Tensor chip, but it might not use the 50MP Samsung GN1 sensor found in the Pixel 6 series
Instead, the foldable is expected to use a 12.2MP Sony IMX363 that is also expected to be introduced in Google Pixel 6a, which might be introduced in May. It is also said to use a 12MP Sony IMX386 ultra-wide camera and an 8 MP Sony IMX355s front camera.
Earlier report revealed that there will be a gap between US and international launch, and the new report says that it will be available internationally by the end of 2022.
