A cheap Pixel phone and a Pixel Flip are definitely on some wish lists There are answers.
Demand for foldable cell phones with a folding display is significantly higher than for larger foldables. This is because these devices are more practical for most people and significantly cheaper. But Google released a Pixel Fold first, so will a Pixel Flip soon follow?
Of course, the community really hopes so and there are the first possible clues. inside in an interview However, Pixel boss Rick Osterloh didn’t let his hand show. On the contrary, his statements seem more like Google won’t be offering us the Pixel Flip anytime soon.
Much attention has been paid to making the Pixel Fold better. Which is more realistic to us as the Pixel Fold 2 for 2024. The first generation still had some weaknesses that Google could offer a significantly better Pixel Fold.
A cheaper pixel possible?
The Pixel 3a was priced at €349 at launch. Today’s Pixel 7a already costs 509 euros. That’s quite a price jump and we can no longer say that Google has a budget phone in its portfolio today. The question is: Will a cheap Pixel ever come out again?
Pixel devices have a clear identity, including a very powerful camera, AI functions and high security. These points are by no means guaranteed in the lower price category. So be it “Plausible” that Google would go in this direction.
Even if some customers probably want a 300 euro phone, Google doesn’t want to give up the identity of the series. Absolutely right decision. In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with a customer buying a year old A model, which is much cheaper then.
