Google is definitely struggling to retain information on its upcoming mobile phones. Although the Pixel 7 Pro hasn’t been officially revealed yet, we already know more about its spec sheet.
Google seems to have a hard time keeping secrets. Several weeks before its official marketing, the Pixel 6a had already found itself for sale on the net. And history seems to be repeating itself, as a prototype of the Pixel 7 Pro has arrived in the hands of a curious customer. Not supposed to be released before next fall, the phone has already revealed a large part of its secrets with this new leak.
No big changes are expected
The Pixel 7 Pro was remotely hacked by Google — a forbidden start — the Pixel 7 Pro that ended up in the wild still offers some obvious small technical details. The boot logs, published in the Telegram group dedicated to Google News, allow you to learn more about the technical sheet of the device.
Google’s best-in-class phone will use the Samsung display again this year (to be exact, the S6E3HC4). While we thought the search giant would reuse Pixel 6 screens, that’s not the case. The Pixel 7 Pro will change the panel quite well, but don’t expect any amazing improvements; The resolution and refresh rate will be the same as the previous generation (3120 x 1440 pixels at 120 Hz). Even more interesting is the Tensor 2 portable chip that has been checked up and down.
As a reminder, Tensor chips are processors designed and developed by Google for its Pixel range of phones. Instead of relying on Qualcomm hardware, like most Android manufacturers, the company has come up with its own solution, like Apple and the A series on the iPhone. first slide Made on Google It somewhat surprised us, with performance just right despite the somewhat noticeable heat up. And Google didn’t seem to want to change the recipe this year, almost surprisingly.
Tensor 2 chip revealed
The Tensor 2 chip appears to maintain the arrangement of 2 + 2 + 4, i.e. two high-performance processors, two balanced processors, and four processors for less demanding tasks. These last four processors will be the same as those found in the Pixel 6 Pro, that is, the Cortex-A55. These processors, without having to age, use the ARMv8 architecture, while a new version (cleverly called ARMv9) was introduced by the giant ARM last year. And since the two versions are not compatible, this means that other processors will also use the old architecture. High-performance processors (Cortex-X1) should stay in place on the Tensor 2. On the other hand, things can change on the part of balanced processors that can go from a Cortex-A76 to a Cortex-A78.
Once these details are made, should we worry about not seeing the latest generation of processors in the Pixel 7 Pro? Mostly not. The first Tensor chip with this name wasn’t the fastest on the market, yet Google managed to deliver flawless performance on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. ARM fans will no doubt be disappointed not to have the company’s new features in the Pixel 7, but that doesn’t mean Google’s upcoming phone will fall behind the competition.
