Pixel Notepad to Undermine Ply 4

Google needs to make a big splash in the foldable market

The other half of our equation is how much Samsung will want for the Galaxy Z Fold 4. One of the trends Sammy tried to sell us is that foldable prices will continue to drop as vendors improve in the production of the necessary components. every year and lower their prices. The OG Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Z Fold 2 cost nearly $2,000 before the third-gen model received a $200 price cut.

But Google needs to make a splash in the foldable market and it’s unclear some of the things that attract phone buyers to the Pixel line, like getting the first shot at Android updates, exclusive Android features, stock Android and computer photography will be enough to make Notepad a challenger in its first year. A lower price than the competition is obviously a big incentive, especially after the uneven launch that Google experienced with the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
The tipster also indicates that the production of the Pixel Notepad will take place in the third quarter of this year and that it could be powered by the second generation Google Tensor chip. A hidden animation discovered in the Android 12L beta in January revealed that the screen could have a square aspect ratio like the foldable Oppo Find N. In theory, this could help Notepad users write more easily on the external display as there would be more space to place a wider “cover screen”.
The notebook is not expected to feature the same camera array found in the Pixel 6 series and instead could feature the same 12.2MP Sony IMX363 sensor used on the Pixel 5. wide with a 12MP sensor will also be on board with a pair of 8MP front camera sensors, one for the internal tablet-sized display and one for the external smartphone-sized display.

Before Notepad, the Pixel 6a should arrive

Get the Google Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro

Before Pixel fans get excited about the Notepad, Google has yet to introduce the Pixel 6a, the annual mid-range Pixel that will retain the new design sensibilities of the Pixel 6 series with a few corners cut here and there. Still, the Pixel 6a is expected to feature a 6.2-inch OLED display with 1080 x 2400 FHD+ resolution and the original 5nm Tensor chip under the hood,

The Pixel 6a is rumored to use Sony’s 12.2-megapixel IMX363 sensor for the main camera and a 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 sensor for the ultra-wide-angle camera. An 8-megapixel Sony IMX355 sensor should be used behind the front-facing hole-punch lens used for the selfie and video chat camera. The phone is said to come with 6GB of memory (half of the 12GB used in the Pixel 6 lineup), 128GB of storage and a 4,800mAh capacity battery that will charge at speeds as fast as 30W.

We could see the Pixel 6a unveiled at the Google I/O Developer Conference which should take place in May. The rumored Pixel Watch is also set to be introduced around the same time. With the entry-level iPhone SE 3 priced at $429 (albeit with just 64GB of storage), Google might want to keep the Pixel 6a at the same price.
