Google’s Pixel phones have always been the subject of online leaks, rumors, arguments, and so on. With the Pixel 6a and 7 series on the way, it seems that it’s full-steam-ahead for a lot of new speculations and discussions regarding Google’s much-anticipated handsets, and new information regarding the Pixel 7 Pro has recently come to light.
A detailed breakdown – courtesy of 9to5Google – shares details obtained from an anonymous user who managed to get hold of a Pixel 7 Pro prototype unit. While the unit’s system has since been remotely wiped by Google, the source still managed to share some interesting details about the hardware inside the phone.
In terms of hardware, the Pixel 7 Pro is expected to come with a new display panel with a Samsung S6E3HC4 panel, which will now offer up to a maximum of 1,000 nits of brightness. The display resolution will still be at 3,120 x 1,440 pixels, although it will come with a new native 1080p mode (similar to what other manufacturers do to conserve power). As for the phone’s processor, it would seem that the 7 Pro will come with the Tensor 2 chipset, which will use a use a 4+2+2 CPU core design and will retain the Cortex-A55 cores.
This is all in addition to the somewhat new and refined design, which puts a new spin on the phone’s camera window at the back.
We can expect more leaks to arrive in the coming months, so stay tuned for more developments.
