Pixel 7 Pro: expected towards the end of the year, Google’s smartphone is already starting to reveal its secrets

Google is certainly struggling to keep information on its upcoming mobiles. Although Pixel 7 Pro has not yet been officially presented, 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 on the net for sale. And history seems to repeat itself, ever since a prototype of the Pixel 7 Pro arrived in the hands of a curious customer. It shouldn’t come out before next autumn, the mobile phone has already revealed most of its secrets with this new leak.

No major changes expected

Remotely stuck by Google, which is a stuck start, the Pixel 7 Pro that went free still provided some neat little technical details. The boot logs, published in a Telegram group dedicated to Google’s news, allow you to deepen the technical data sheet of the device.

Google’s top-of-the-range cell phone would use a Samsung screen again this year (the S6E3HC4 to be precise). While we thought the search giant would reuse the Pixel 6 screens, that’s not the case. Pixel 7 Pro will change the panel well, but don’t expect any surprising improvements; the resolution and refresh rate will be identical to those of the previous generation (3120 x 1440 px at 120 Hz). More interesting, it’s the Tensor 2 mobile chip which has been scrutinized up and down and across.

Recall that Tensor chips are processors designed and developed by Google for its line of Pixel phones. Rather than relying on Qualcomm hardware, like most Android makers, the company has come up with its own solution, like Apple and its A-series on the iPhone. The first chip done on google rather pleasantly surprised us, with fairly correct performance despite a fairly noticeable warming. And it would seem that Google did not want to change the recipe this year, almost surprisingly.

The Tensor 2 chip is presented

It would appear that the Tensor 2 chip retains the 2 + 2 + 4 arrangement, i.e. two high-performance processors, two balanced processors and four processors for less demanding tasks. These last four processors would also be the same as the Pixel 6 Pro, namely Cortex-A55. These processors, without necessarily being dated, use the ARMv8 architecture, while a new version (cleverly called ARMv9) was presented by the giant ARM last year. And since the two versions are not compatible, this means that the other processors will also use the old architecture. High performance processors (Cortex-X1) should also remain in place on Tensor 2. On the other hand, things could change on the side of balanced processors that could move from Cortex-A76 to Cortex-A78.

Without these details, should we worry about not seeing the latest generation processors in this Pixel 7 Pro? Probably not. The first Tensor chip of this name wasn’t the fastest on the market, yet Google was able to deliver flawless performance on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. Fans of ARM processors will no doubt be disappointed not to have the company’s new features. in the Pixel 7, but that doesn’t mean that Google’s next mobile will lag behind the competition.
