The Google Pixel Notepad is expected to feature a compact form factor

9to5Google reports that the Google Pixel Notepad will launch at a price tag of $1,399 (~Rs 1,04,600). This is significantly lower than the Galaxy Z Fold 3 which starts at $1,800 (~Rs 1,34,477) in the US market. It will be interesting to see how Google will manage to keep the price of its first foldable smartphone lower than competition. To recall, brands like Samsung and Huawei launched their first foldable smartphones around the $2,000 (~Rs 1,49,389) mark. 

The report adds that the price of the Pixel Notepad could change leading up to the launch event and the target price comes from two independent sources who are familiar with Google’s ongoing plan. 

As for the key specifications, the Google Pixel Notepad will reportedly feature a compact form factor like the OPPO Find N instead of the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The foldable smartphone will be powered by a Google Tensor chip coupled with 12GB RAM and 512GB internal storage. The device will likely come with a 12.2MP Sony IMX363 camera paired with a 12MP ultra-wide sensor. 

The Google Pixel Notepad is tipped to launch in the US first and later expand to other countries. The launch date currently remains unknown but we can expect the smartphone’s release sometime in Q3, 2022.
