Google can make a very good Android operating system, but it seems that this giant still has no charm in manufacturing hardware devices. Recent sources show that the main processor chip of Pixel 7 Pro, Tensor 2, is still not comparable to other Android smartphones.
Not long ago, a prototype of Pixel 7 Pro was suddenly leaked and sold on social networks. Recently, the analysis results from this prototype have given the technology world a lot of important information about Google’s biological child.
The Google Tensor 2 chip can’t be a big upgrade
Since last year’s Pixel 6, the internal Tensor chip developed by Google has been used instead of the Snapdragon chip purchased from Qualcomm. The new chip for the Pixel 7 series is expected to be Tensor 2, which will bring many improvements, but it seems that everything is not so.
Tensor 2 seems to maintain a 2+2+4 CPU configuration, with two high-performance cores, two medium cores, and four light performance cores. As for the lightweight cores, according to the leak, Google has decided to stick with the Cortex-A55. This is an Armv8 CPU core and it cannot be mixed and matched with newer generation Armv9 cores (which are Cortex-X2, Cortex-A710, Cortex-A510 – these are used, for example, in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 chip. Gen 1 top).
This means that Google will let older CPU cores like the Cortex-A78 and Cortex-X1 work with the Cortex-A55. For example, these cores are used in the Snapdragon 888 chip, last year’s flagship chipset found in last year’s Galaxy S21 series.
Unfortunately, this could mean that the new Tensor chipset will fall behind today’s top chipsets like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or 8 Plus Gen 1, at least in theory. And, when new chipsets come out in 2023, Tensor 2 will even be overtaken by its rivals.
Configuration of Pixel 7 Pro
Leaked sources say that Pixel 7 Pro will be slightly upgraded in terms of screen. The panel that the Pixel 6 Pro uses is a Samsung S6E3HC3, while the Pixel 7 Pro is said to use an S6E3HC4 display and it is said to have a resolution of 3120×1440 (same resolution as the Pixel 6 Pro).
The newer panel isn’t meant to be a huge improvement in the displays of the two models but could bring some minor changes. This contradicts other rumors that Google will equip the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro with screens last year. This means we need to wait a bit longer to see what the screen on the Pixel 7 will look like.
From previous leaks and Google itself briefly revealing the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro during Google I/O, the tech world knows the two phones will feature a refined design similar to last year’s Google flagships. some new colors .
As of now, the camera system is not expected to be updated. We have yet to hear any leaks about the battery capacity. The two phones will be announced in the fall, possibly in October.
