Upcoming Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro Details are out. Recently, we learned the first details about Google’s forthcoming Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones. Which are expected to be released in October if the company adheres to its typical schedule.
Even still, here we are in February, with some of the puzzle pieces already in position.
Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro Details
According to a fresh report, the Pixel 7 duo would feature a second-generation Tensor chipset for connectivity, along with a Samsung-made Exynos Modem 5300.
Cheetah and Panther are said to be the codenames for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, which is fascinating because up until the Pixel 6 generation. Google exclusively used codenames that were connected to fish or other marine life.
Then there were the Oriole and Raven for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, and the avian nomenclature appears to be continuing with the yet-to-be-announced Pixel 6a. Which is purportedly called Bluejay. Then it seems we’ll move on to feline themes.
So it seems that Google is now altering the Pixel’s codename scheme with each iteration probably until it runs out of animals. However, this might take some time.
The most recent piece of information to surface today is a third Pixel codename, Ravenclaw, which is associated with the Exynos Modem 5300.
So, this may just be a Hogwarts reference, or it could be something more fascinating.
When the initial Tensor was in development last year, Google put it to the test by swapping out the Snapdragon 765 in select Pixel 5 devices with the Tensor.
These models were given the codename Whitefin, a blend of “white” from the Tensor project’s codename “Whitechapel” and “fin” from the Pixel 5’s codename “Redfin.”
Likewise, it’s possible that “Raven” in “Ravenclaw” refers to the Pixel 6 Pro and “claw” is only a feline allusion, in which case this would be a Pixel 6 Pro device with Pixel 7 internals produced for testing reasons.
After all, there’s still plenty of time before the Pixel 7 generation is officially released, and for speculations and information like this to be confirmed by subsequent rumours and information. Or maybe not.
