It’s clear that Google’s design and product development teams are finalizing details for many devices at the same time. And it is that, only in the last few days, we have heard rumors about the future Pixel 6a, the expected Pixel Watch, the successor to the current Chromecast with Google TV and even about possible mixed reality glasses.
Now, in addition, we have a new leak on the price that the first Google folding will have. A few days ago, alongside the news of its supposed name, Pixel NotePad, it was announced that it would cost less than the 1,809 euros of the Samsung GalaxyZ Fold 3. Now, 9to5google claims to know the exact figure.
Around 1,240 euros at the current exchange rate
Little by little, the various manufacturers have started to bet on the foldable format for their high-end phones and most already have some proposals in their catalog. This led to a slight drop in prices for this segment. Samsung’s GalaxyZ Fold 3 is proof of that, and it looks like Google’s future foldable will be even cheaper.
Despite rumors about the cancellation of the project last year, everything indicates that the Mountain View company is still working on its first foldable phone. In fact, in recent days a performance test has been leaked in which we see that it will have 12 GB of RAM, Android 12 (or more precisely, Android 12L) and the Google Tensor chip, the processor developed by Google with the help from Samsung.
According to 9to5Google, its name will ultimately be Pixel NotePad, not Pixel Fold or Pixel Passport, as speculated. This same support, which already claimed that the foldable Google would be cheaper than the current Samsung model, now assures that the company plans to market it at $1,400, which is about $500 more than the Pixel 6 Pro, but $400 less than the Samsung Z Fold 3 costs in the US ($1,799). These 1,400 dollars, in exchange, are equivalent to approximately 1,240 euros.
Google is reportedly planning to sell its foldable for $1,400, which is about $500 more than the Pixel 6 Pro and $400 less than the Z Fold 3 costs in the US.
Those responsible for this leak, according to 9to5Google, are sources close to Google and also claim that the first foldable Google will be available worldwide at the end of 2022. In addition, they are betting on a dual camera both front and back: Sony IMX363 from 12.2 MP + 12 MP Sony IMX386 on the back and two 8 MP Sony IMX355 sensors on the front.
