According to new information from Ross Young - CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants with 27.4k followers on Twitter, Google's foldable Pixel phone, alleged to be called the Pixel Notepad (via 9to5Google (opens in new tab)), is set to have a smaller outer display and a similar-sized inner display to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 (opens in new tab).
Z Fold 4 and Google foldable will have similar sized foldable displays, but the Google cover display will be quite a bit smaller at 5.8". This should mean it will have a wider aspect ratio than the Samsung 6.19" Fold 4. Hear more at our conference next week.May 2, 2022
While the Galaxy Z Fold4's is expected to have a 6.19-inch screen, the new leak claims the Pixel Notepad will have a 5.8-inch outer display, obviously meaning it will have a wider aspect radio. This is corroborated by a leak that came via 9to5Google back in January, which said that the Google foldable would look more like the Oppo Find N (opens in new tab) than the Samsung Galaxy Fold4, which most certainly makes it more likely to be correct.
Google Pixel Notepad: What we know so far
Young doesn’t dish out a launch date with his leak and there’s be no other reliable leaks regarding at date either. However, a good guess would be around autumn, when the Pixel 7 launches.
Google’s first foldable – the Pixel Fold – was actually expected last year before Google pulled the plug. Now back on the agenda and allegedly called the Pixel Notepad it’s expected to cost $1,500/£1,400.
From the Ross Young leak we know to expect a wide and short, like that of the Oppo Find N. Intel from 9to5Google tells us that it will be powered by a Google Tensor chip. Rather than using the Pixel 6’s 50-megapixel Samsung GN1 sensor, its primary camera is said to be the 12.2-megapixel Sony IMX363 from the Pixel 3-5a this is because it is thin. It’ll be joined by an ultra-wide 12MP IMX386 and a pair of 8MP IMX355s for selfies.
