Another day, another wave of leaks – new information pertaining to upcoming Google hardware has been making rounds online, not long after the release of the latest Google Pixel 6a. In particular, the leaks refer to the camera hardware on the upcoming Pixel 7, Pixel tablet, as well as a possible Pixel foldable.

A series of online posts from Twitter user Kuba Wojciechowski refers to several camera hardware components on the different devices. The post specifies that “Google obfuscated all the sensors’ names in their code” in order to prevent leaks from getting out online, although a workaround was still made possible.

Several details were included in the tweets, which indicate that the upcoming Pixel 7 Pro might feature a Samsung GN1 primary sensor, and Sony’s IMX381 ultrawide sensor. The front camera will supposedly feature a Samsung 3J1 sensor which will be used for facial biometrics.

The tweets also state that the Pixel tablet (also referred to as T6) will come with two Sony IMX355 sensors, which are the same ones used in the Pixel 6’s front-facing camera. Another post points to the existence of a Pixel foldable, which comes with a trio of sensors.

Of course, there’s no official word on these hardware specs from Google or any related entities, but it’s interesting how much information can be obtained from delving into code and cross-referencing it with external sources. Either way, the next batch of Google smart devices should be interesting, and we can expect more information as we get closer to the launch of the Pixel 7 series later this year.
