A new source tells us more about the price to expect from Google’s first foldable smartphone.
While its release may have seemed uncertain for a while, Google’s foldable smartphone is becoming more precise every day. Recently, it’s its trade name Google Pixel NotePad which was leaked. Now we think we know more about its selling price, a sign that the presentation could be approaching.
A high price, but lower than the competition
It was the 9To5Google site that was able to obtain an estimate of the selling price of the device thanks to their sources. For this project, Google would like to aim for a sale price around the $1400 mark, which is $500 more than the Google Pixel 6 Pro, the most expensive smartphone currently marketed by the firm. Above all, Google would place itself 500 dollars below the recommended retail price Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 3 in the USA.
In France, the latter was launched at 1799 euros, which suggests a Google Pixel NotePad around 1400 euros. If the firm wishes to market it in France. We know that Google does not always invest enough in its production lines to distribute its devices all over the world. 9To5Google indicates on this point that there should be a delay between the launch in the United States and the launch in the rest of the world.
Launch at the end of the year
Also according to the site, Google would work to launch this smartphone before the end of 2022. It would take over the Google Tensor chip from the Google Pixel 6 and would offer a design bringing it closer to the Oppo Find N which we recently took over. It would therefore have a wider and lower format than Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold. The product should run Android 12L which is currently in beta.
We hope to learn more in the coming weeks or months. Maybe at the next Google IO?
