The next Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, which again will be the “reference” Android smartphones, won’t offer significant camera improvements over their predecessors, at least on the hardware side
Insider Yogesh Brar the statement stated that future smartphones will have the same hardware as the current generation. We were anticipating this, I must admit. Google had previously used a 12-megapixel Sony IMX363 sensor, from the second to fifth-generation Pixels. However, smartphones are a way to measure the quality of mobile photography. The constant improvement in algorithms has made it possible for the smartphone to be a reliable indicator of how powerful the software is.
Now, the Samsung GN1 with 50 MP was the winner. Apparently, Google will again offer 50 MP and 12 MP sensors in the Pixel 7, changing only the software component and finalizing the neural networks that the company has been focusing on lately. If we talk about the Pixel 7 Pro, then it should have a triple camera, where the third sensor is a 48 MP telephoto lens.
GOOGLE PIXEL7 AND PIXEL7 PRO CAMERAS WILL ONLY EVOLVE WITH SOFTWARE
Apparently, Google will try to squeeze the maximum out of the “hardware” and bring the quality of photos to a new level. Google will announce the Google Pixel 7 series in the fall. Both smartphones will receive OLED displays. The basic version will have an OLED display with a diagonal measuring 6.3 inches and the Pro version will measure 6.7 inches. The proprietary second-generation Tensor chip will power the smartphones.
Tensor SoCs were created for Pixel 6 smartphones and include two Cortex X1 superstores. MediaTek and Qualcomm do not have such SoCs. According to reports, Google is working on a new generation SoC.
The code name Cloudripper was found in the firmware code of Pixel 6. This code designation is associated to the second generation Tensor SoC. Cloudripper, however, is the code name of a test platform for a possible Tensor 2; it has the abbreviation GS201. Remember that the GS101 number is the code number for the Tensor SoC’s current test platform.
It is unclear what Tensor 2 will look like. But if the company sticks to the current architecture, then Tensor 2 could get two Cortex-X2 super-cores; while Qualcomm and MediaTek’s top next-gen platforms will have one each.
