Google can’t keep the Pixel 7 to itself: new details on Tensor 2 and display


At the I / O in May Google had surprised everyone announcing previewed his Pixel 7 and 7 Pro and, while not revealing much of the devices, he gave the impression of wanting to get his hands on in front of the historical leaks. Apparently without success.

The events of the Google phones before the announcement, the most famous is about the Nexus 4 forgotten in the bar, but lately the big G has outdone itself. First there was the Pixel Watch forgotten in a restaurant (and promptly grabbed by an attentive user), then it was the turn of the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro put up for sale on eBay and (unconsciously) bought on Facebook.

Now another has appeared, always one Pixel 7 Prowhich would come to an individual, and then be promptly remotely disabled from Google. At this point the person contacted the guys from the Google News Telegram channel, who managed to get their hands on the startup logs and reveal some really interesting information on the hardware of the new phones.

Pixel 7 Pro: Tensor 2 and device code names

Starting from processorwe had already had indications that the new ones Pixel 7 they would have mounted a Tensor chip second generation, also provided by Samsung, with the same 4 + 2 + 2 cluster as the first and the energy-saving Cortex-A55 cores. THE new logs confirm this informationappointing in a register BL31 i core A55. As for the rest, not much is known. Currently, the Tensor 1 chip uses two Cortex-X1 cores and 2 “medium” Cortex-A76 cores for medium to high power operations.

The logs also confirm the codenames of the next Pixels:

Missing “Lynx”, which appeared long ago (perhaps it refers to the now legendary Pixel Fold?), But an unreleased “Ravenclaw” appears, a Pixel 6 Pro on which Google is testing the Tensor 2 chip.

Pixel 7 Pro: screen

We then move on to the screen, the real surprise. Last month we reported that the Pixel 7s would use the same displays as their predecessors. Apparently this could not be correctat least in regards to Pixel 7 Pro. In fact, the boot logs show that Pixel 7 Pro uses a display Samsung S6E3HC4while Pixel 6 Pro is equipped with a panel Samsung S6E3HC3. The change may not be particularly significant, but it is there nonetheless. At this point it remains to be seen that of the younger brother.

Unfortunately Google has inactivated the device (something he will have to keep to himself), so that’s all we managed to find out, but keep following us, because the distracted employees of the company will forget some others phone from now to September!
