Google announced at the developer conference Google I / O on May 12 that it will release new smartphones “Pixel 7” and “Pixel 7 Pro” this fall, but it seems that a new premium model will be added to this series. ..
News site 9to5Google reports that it has found code related to the device from Google’s Android Open Source Project (AOSP). According to the article, the name “G10” was found in the source code alongside codenames such as “C10” which means Pixel 7 Pro and “P10” which means Pixel 7, and 9to5 Google’s Damien Wilde said this. “It suggests a device called the Pixel Ultra,” he said.
Wilde said the device’s code revealed that it had a 6.7-inch 120Hz refresh rate display, with the same specs as the Pixel 7 Pro. However, while the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will use the same Samsung display panel as last year’s device, the G10 will have a new BOE panel.
Wilde also said the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro’s displays were great, but not as bright as the Galaxy S22 Ultra and iPhone 13 Pro Max. So it makes sense to add a model with a higher quality display in the 2022 model, he pointed out.
There is little other information about this new device, and the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are expected to have a second-generation Tensor chip (GS201), but from the AOSP code, will this device have a GS201? I can’t see if you can. If Google is trying to differentiate itself, the Ultra may have a higher clock version of the chip (GS202).
You need to wait a bit to see if 9to5Google’s predictions are correct. But given that Google has leaked details in Android code so far, the upcoming new beta of Android 13 is likely to reveal more details.
