More Google Pixel 7 Pro details for its screen and chip have emerged courtesy to finds from a pre-production handset.

We have previously reported about the Pixel 7 prototypes that were sold online, and how while usable for a time, they’ve since been remotely disabled. However, one person with a connection to the Google News Telegram group(opens in new tab) (via Android Central(opens in new tab)) has recovered device logs from one of these phones, and they have provided us some new insights.


The most evident change we can notice is that there may be a modest display enhancement between the Pixel 6 Pro and the Pixel 7 Pro. The Pixel 6 Pro featured a QHD+ Samsung display with codename “S6E3HC3”, however the Pixel 7 Pro seems to use an updated “S6E3HC4”. The Pixel 6 Pro’s 6.7-inch, 120Hz display will remain largely unchanged, but we can only hope that this minor update will bring a few minor improvements.

Several facts about the Tensor 2 SoC, which is expected to power Google’s Pixel 7 smartphone, were also revealed by this prototype. Dual high-performance cores will be paired with dual mid-power and four high-efficiency cores in this new chipset. However, other than those high-efficiency cores, there appears to be nothing familiar about this new Tensor device.

The last point of interest are the mentions of other Pixel product codenames. These phones have codenames like “panther,” “cheetah,” and “felix,” which we’ve heard before. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, as well as next year’s low-cost Google phone, “Pixel 7a,” all have these names. That’s going to be a while off though, since the Pixel 6a won’t come until next month, after been introduced at Google I/O last month.


It’s a shame there’s no mention of the Google Pixel Fold or the Google Pixel Tablet. Although Google has only confirmed the Tablet’s existence, we’re excited to learn more about these two Pixel products in the near future.

We only know that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will have their complete debuts in the fall of this year. That’s still a long time away, but we can only hope that Google will provide us with additional information in the meanwhile. At the very least, we can rely on Google Pixel 7 leakers to assist us flesh out the information we already have.
