Google Pixel’s foldable price could significantly undercut the Galaxy Z Fold 3
The Google Pixel foldable price could be significantly lower than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, according to a new report.
Google’s flexible debut still won’t come cheap, if the latest news from 9to5Google is to be believed. At a claimed cost of $1,399, however, that would be $400 less than the current foldable phone champ. By the way, that’s £1,040 and a saving of $300 if we do a rough currency conversion
We heard rumors last week that the so-called “Pixel Notepad” would be cheaper than the Galaxy Z Fold 3, but we didn’t expect it to be that low. We’re not looking at the impulse buy range here, but it’s a step closer to “normal” flagship prices.
The report also points out that this would represent a slightly smaller $500 gap between Google’s current flagship, the Pixel 6 Pro, and its first foldable. In contrast, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 costs $600 more than the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Annoyingly, a previous report had claimed that the foldable Pixel could receive a staggered global launch, with the US taking it significantly ahead of the rest of the world. Even, so it could be available everywhere by the end of the year.
Earlier this month we learned that the foldable Pixel will look more like the Oppo Find N than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. That would mean a more compact foldable with a chunkier form factor when folded, which means that it will naturally fold into an almost square form factor.
