wish hello to the first leaks


9to5Google dug through the Android 13 Developer Preview code and unearthed some very early information likely related to the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. We take stock.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro are among the most notable phones of 2021, despite numerous post-market software bugs. Undoubtedly, Google wants to put the cover back with the next generation which should probably be called Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, if we follow the commercial logic of the American giant.

Four months after the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro became official, the very first leaks about their successor appeared on the Web. This indiscretion is signed 9to5Googlewhich went to dig into the code of the first Developer Preview relating to Android 13. Here is what the media found there.

A better SoC on the way?

First of all, 9to5Google evokes a second generation Tensor chip. This Tensor 2.0 will be on a mission to beef up the game in terms of performance, after a relatively disappointing first version on the Pixel 6. Tensor 1.0 was certainly good, but clearly didn’t blow us away either.

This new SoC would have the model number GS201. The internal codename would be “cloudripper”. In real life, Cloudripper is a mountain peak in Sierra Nevada, California, and the highest point in the Inconsolable Range. This peak embodies something big, majestic, that Google may have wanted to reclaim.

always according to 9to5Google, the Mountain View company could turn its back on the Samsung Exynos Modem 5123, presented in 2019 and cut at the time for 5G. Instead, the Exynos Modem 5300 could join the party, although Samsung hasn’t officially introduced it yet.

First references

The code names continue to rain, since the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro could simply be nicknamed “cheetah” and “panther”, either cheetah and panther. Once again, these felines echo rewarding skills, such as speed, for example. Google obviously wants to make its smartphones the wrath of war.

If this leak does not reveal many technical characteristics, the code names revealed make it possible to have a first repository on which we can rely later to link information more easily. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro leak season is definitely on.

Pixel 7: Google would work on a camera hidden under the screen

Google filed a patent last August that would include an invisible camera under the screen of a smartphone. This technology could well be integrated into the next Pixel models of the firm.
