The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are anticipated to be released in October, but early rumours have revealed some interesting details about the duo.
According to the most recent reports, the Pixel 7 phones would feature the second-generation Tensor chipset for networking on top of Samsung’s Exynos Modem 5300.
Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, codenamed Cheetah and Panther, have distinct naming strategies than prior Pixel 6 generations, which solely used codenames connected to fish or other aquatic creatures. In the past, Google has used avian nomenclature and, on occasion, feline nomenclature.
Google’s codenaming process for Pixel phones is changing with each generation, as evidenced by the varying names.
A third Pixel device was also discovered, with the codename Ravenclaw paired with the Exynos Modem 5300.
Previously, Google tested the Tensor internally by replacing the Snapdragon 765 with the Tensor in some Pixel 5 units and naming them ‘Whitefin.’
Google’s play on words with Ravenclaw might be a Hogwarts connection or a hint at the Pixel 6a.
However, there is still a long way to go before Google formally introduces the Pixel 7 generation and releases further details about the devices.
