At a recent event, Google gave a sneak peek of the Pixel Tablet, showing off its new Pixel 7 series phones. In addition to the new tablet, the company is also working on the Pixel Notepad, a foldable smartphone.
Now, details about these two new devices have been leaked online before they are officially released. These details show that neither of these new products will have a fingerprint sensor under the screen.
A report shows an Android code used for UI testing on devices shows a Y-aligned setup. This means that the fingerprint sensor on the device will be on the left or right side.
Two devices are being used to test this new Android UI code. One is a foldable smartphone called the Google Notepad or Google Fold, and the other is the Google Pixel Tablet, which will come out next year.
Recently, it was announced that the Pixel Notepad would have a screen made by Samsung Display, which already makes screens for the Pixel series of phones. The large screen will have a screen resolution of 1840×2208, a peak brightness of up to 1200nits, and an average brightness of 800nits. Even though it hasn’t been confirmed yet, it could have a refresh rate of up to 120Hz.
There should be three cameras on the back of the phone: a primary 64MP Sony IMX787 sensor, a 12MP IMX386 ultrawide lens, and a 10.8MP S5K3J1 telephoto sensor. The device’s back camera is said to have an 8MP Sony IMX355 sensor, while the front camera may have an S5K3J1 sensor.
When both devices come out next year, Google will have its hardware ecosystem, including the Pixel line of phones, tablets, TWS earbuds, smartwatches, and the Nest line of innovative home products.
