The first reports about the Pixel Notepad came about back in January. It was rumored that the device would be significantly less expensive than the Galaxy Z Fold 3 currently on the market.
At the time, the Pixel Notepad was expected to cost $1,399, while the Galaxy Z Fold 3 would cost $1,799, according to the rumor mill. Google continues to target a $1,399 MSRP for its first foldable, according to a tweet from tipster @TheGalox_ (via notebookcheck.net).
The Pixel Notepad will be manufactured in the third quarter of this year, according to the source, and it could be powered by Google’s second-generation Tensor chip. The screen may have a square aspect ratio like the foldable Oppo Find N, according to a hidden animation discovered in the Android 12L beta back in January. In theory, this would make it easier for Notepad users to write on the external display because there would be more room for a wider “cover screen.”
As per the specification the Notepad is unlikely to have the same camera array as the Pixel 6 series, but it may have the same 12.2MP Sony IMX363 sensor as the Pixel 5. There will also be a 12MP ultra-wide camera on board, as well as two 8MP front camera sensors, one for the internal tablet-sized screen and one for the external smartphone-sized display.
But, it will be a while, before we get to see the Notepad. Google must first introduce the Pixel 6a, a mid-range Pixel that will keep the new design sensibilities of the Pixel 6 series while cutting some corners here and there.
