The exact price of the foldable Pixel Notepad appears to have been disclosed.

has learned from two sources that Google is considering a price of around $1,400 for the first foldable Pixel. That would make it $400 cheaper than the Fold 3 which goes for $1,799.99. While that may sound great at first glance, keep in mind that foldable phones require complicated parts that are usually costlier. That explains why the first crop of foldable phones released by Samsung and Huawei back in 2019 was in the neighborhood of $2,000.

Samsung has presumably managed to bring the price down because of something called economies of scale whereby costs of production go down as production volume increases. So, it's a little hard to understand how Google is targeting a price of $1,400 for the Pixel Notepad, but then again this is not beyond the realms of possibility, considering Oppo's first foldable phone, the Find N, costs the equivalent of $1,200.

With just 5 ounces of 70% or 91% isopropyl rubbing alcohol, you will have roughly 50 minutes of burn time.

That would make it $400 cheaper than the Fold 3 which goes for $1,799.99. Packed with an impressive camera, stock Android, first crack at Android software updates, Google's gimmicky software tricks, and better-than-normal battery life, the mid-range Pixels are a value buyer's dream. While that may sound great at first glance, keep in mind that foldable phones require complicated parts that are usually costlier. But despite being the best of its kind, all things can use some improvement, and that’s the case for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 as well. That explains why the first crop of foldable phones released by Samsung and Huawei back in 2019 was in the neighborhood of $2,000. And this year, we should see the Pixel 6a with design cues based on the new look of the Pixel 6 series, including the rear-facing camera bar. Samsung has presumably managed to bring the price down because of something called economies of scale whereby costs of production go down as production volume increases.

So, it's a little hard to understand how Google is targeting a price of $1,400 for the Pixel Notepad, but then again this is not beyond the realms of possibility, considering Oppo's first foldable phone, the Find N, costs the equivalent of $1,200. Google could unveil the Pixel 6a at Google I/O in May This could mean that the phone will be introduced at the Google I/O developers conference which was held last year from May 18th through May 20th after COVID forced the cancellation of the event in 2020. For instance, replying to that message on WhatsApp, checking the time, swiping through notifications, and anything that requires little effort. Speaking of which, the Pixel Notepad is expected to have a square aspect ratio like the Oppo Find N instead of the taller aspect ratio of the Fold 3, which could make writing on the cover screen feel more convenient.  Pixel Notepad may arrive later this year The Notepad will allegedly have the in-house Tensor chip under the hood, the same processor that powers the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. That is according to tipster Jon Prosser, who says that the announcement could be made during Google I/O. The device is unlikely to get the flagship range's 50MP rear camera though, and will instead go for Pixel 5's 12. Typing on the cover display of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is a troublesome task.2-megapixel IMX363 sensor, which will be accompanied by a 12MP ultrawide camera.2-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1080p.

The phone is also expected to have two 8MP front cameras, one for the main screen and one for the cover display. The aforementioned 50MP sensor is physically larger than the sensors Google is expected to use for the Notepad, and would have increased the thickness of the device. The main camera sensor on the back could be the Samsung GN1 which weighs in at 50MP and is the same sensor used on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Based on my experience with the Oppo Find N, it might not be a good idea despite the usability improvement. Besides, even Samsung's best foldable phones don't exactly have stellar camera setups, so these specs are unlikely to be deal-breakers for most prospective buyers. It was previously reported that the Pixel Notepad would initially only be available in the US and today's report says that the device will be released internationally by the end of 2022. One version, called"cloudripper," uses the same sensors found in the Pixel 6 Pro. While that doesn't tell us anything about the US launch, if were to speculate, we'd assume a Q3 unveiling. Personally, I’ve yet to come across an app or a webpage where I prefer a wider aspect ratio to a taller one.

Before that, we are likely to see the , which a recent leak says will be revealed in May. This year's Pixel 6a unveiling, if done in May as Jambor says, will happen much earlier than the last two models which were the Pixel 4a and Pixel 5a, both of which were announced in August.
