Rumor | Google Pixel Notepad tipped to undercut the Galaxy Z Fold4's price as production nears
While Google disappointed fans by not launching the "Pixel Fold" alongside the Pixel 6 series last year, the company still has the foldable phone in the works and is apparently set to market it as the "Pixel Notepad" instead.
According to leaker TheGalox_, Google will begin production of the Pixel Notepad in Q3. Seeing as the Galaxy Z Flip4 is set to enter production in April and will debut in August, it seems fair to assume that the Pixel Notepad could launch around October alongside the Pixel 7 series.
Back in January, 9to5Google reported that Google was planning to peg the Pixel Notepad's price at or below US$1799. The Galaxy Z Fold3's MSRP in other words. TheGalox_ asserts, however, that Google may be looking to price the Pixel Notepad at US$1399, effectively undercutting the Z Fold3 by US$400. That makes sense, as the Pixel 6 series also undercut the Galaxy S21 and S22 series in price. While the Galaxy Z Fold3 was priced US$200 lower than the Galaxy Z Fold2, odds are it's still going to be more expensive than the Pixel Notepad's targeted US$1399 price point.
The Pixel Notepad, codenamed "pipit" is expected to be powered by Google's in-house Tensor chipset, likely the second-gen model that will also debut on the Pixel 7 series.
