Secrecy isn’t a big thing at Google, and we can see details of the upcoming Pixel Notepad in the latest Google Camera app. Google also wants to see a few of these leaks. Otherwise, features of secret devices would hardly be found in the public version of the app.
Now Google is firing up the rumor mill about the Pixel Notepad again and creating a few facts itself. And that’s just a few days after leaks on the camera hardware, which we can expect to see in Notepad.
The new button clearly shows a foldable smartphone
For example, “Jupiter” appeared in the latest version of the app. The associated icon is clear, it appears to show a foldable. According to colleagues, this is the best proof that Google’s first foldable is on the way. What the source code doesn’t reveal is how the feature works exactly.
The new button is only suitable for foldables and hides the button for “switch camera” if necessary. Possibly a new camera feature that can only be used with the main camera, so that the user has to rotate the device and this symbol ultimately indicates this.
Google offers its camera app on its own Pixel phones. Of course, foldable features only make sense if Google is planning a foldable itself. Perhaps it will be shown at the October event in the fall after it has reportedly been postponed several times.
Google Camera: More new features planned
In the source code, you can also discover that Google is working on various innovations in the run-up to the Pixel 7 series. Some of these discoveries are currently only codenamed and appear to hide larger functionality. Innovations are also planned in the field of selfies. However, no further details are known about this.
This is known about the Pixel Notepad so far:
- Foldable with a large display on the inside
- Screen diagonal: approx. 5.8 inches outside, 7 – 8 inches inside
- Price should be below the comparable competition
- Most likely with Google Tensor
- Camera setup from Pixel 6 series; Pixel 6 front camera
- Market launch unknown, postponed several times
