Google needs to make big noise in the foldable market
The other half of our equation is how much will Samsung want for the Galaxy Z Fold 4. One of the trends that Sammy has been trying to sell us on is that foldable prices will continue to go down as suppliers get better at producing the necessary components every year and drop their prices. The OG Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Z Fold 2 were nearly $2,000 before the third-generation model was given a $200 price drop.

Before the Notepad, the Pixel 6a should arrive
Pick up the Google Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro
Before Pixel fans get excited about the Notepad, Google still has to introduce the Pixel 6a, the annual mid-range Pixel that will keep the new design sensibilities of the Pixel 6 series with some corners cut here and there. Still, the Pixel 6a is expected to carry a 6.2-inch OLED display with a 1080 x 2400 FHD+ resolution, and the original 5nm Tensor chip under the hood,

The Pixel 6a is rumored to use Sony’s 12.2MP IMX363 sensor for the primary camera, and a 12MP Sony IMX386 sensor for the ultra-wide-angle camera. An 8MP Sony IMX355 sensor should be employed behind the front-facing hole-punch lens being used for the selfie and video chat camera. The phone will reportedly come with 6GB of memory (half the 12GB used in the Pixel 6 line), 128GB of storage, and a 4800mAh capacity battery that will charge at a rate as fast as 30W.
We could see the Pixel 6a unveiled during the Google I/O Developer Conference which should take place in May. The rumored Pixel Watch is also expected to be introduced at around the same time. With the entry level iPhone SE 3 priced at $429 (although with only 64GB of storage), Google might want to keep the Pixel 6a priced in the same ballpark.
