Although the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are expected to be introduced in October, early rumours have revealed some intriguing characteristics regarding the pair.
According to recent rumours, the Pixel 7 phones would use Samsung’s Exynos Modem 5300 and the second-generation Tensor chipset for networking.
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, codenamed Cheetah and Panther, respectively, have a different naming strategy than previous Pixel 6 generations, which only used codenames associated with fish or other aquatic species. Google has previously employed avian and, on rare occasions, feline terminology.
As indicated by the various titles, Google’s codenaming procedure for Pixel phones is evolving with each generation.
A third Pixel smartphone with the codename Ravenclaw with the Exynos Modem 5300 was also uncovered.
Google already tested the Tensor internally by swapping out the Snapdragon 765 in select Pixel 5 units and calling them ‘Whitefin.’
Ravenclaw’s play on words could be a Hogwarts reference or a hint at the Pixel 6a.
However, there is still a long way to go before Google officially launches the Pixel 7 generation and provides further information on the devices.
