Upcoming Google Products: Pixel 7a and Pixel Fold
As the tech world eagerly awaits the unveiling of Google’s new products in the coming months, two devices have been the subject of much anticipation and speculation: the Pixel 7a and Pixel Fold.
Pixel Fold: Will it be Affordable After All?
While the Pixel Fold has been a hot topic among tech insiders and leakers, there has been much debate over its pricing. In recent predictions, Yogesh Brar suggests that the Pixel Fold could be released at a price point between $1,300 and $1,500. This poses a contrast to previous rumors that suggested the device may start around $1,700 or even $1,800. While the Pixel Fold is not likely to compete with the Pixel 7a in terms of affordability, the fact that it may cost less than Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Fold 5 is a positive sign. Google is expected to unveil the Pixel Fold at their I/O developer conference in May.
The Pixel Fold is rumored to have a 7.7-inch primary display and a 5.8-inch cover screen, along with the Tensor G2 processor and a 12GB RAM count.
Pixel 7a: Unsurprising Price Prediction
The Pixel 7a is set to be Google’s next mid-range offering and is expected to follow the success of the Pixel 6a. The device is rumored to cost $450 in the US, or potentially $500, which is not a significant increase given current inflation rates. The Pixel 7a is expected to have a 6.1-inch OLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and a dual rear-facing camera system with 64 and 12MP shooters. It may also feature a 4,500mAh battery and second-gen Tensor processing power. The device is anticipated to launch globally in early Q3 with a single 128GB storage configuration.
The leaked design of the Pixel 7a is very similar to that of the Pixel 7, which will help to distinguish it from the upcoming Pixel 8.
