A new report recently revealed some details of Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Z Flip clamshell folding screen. At the same time, DSCC CEO Ross Young pointed out that the Google Pixel 7 will use a slightly smaller screen (6.3 vs 6.4 inches) than the Pixel 6, while the Pixel 7 Pro will maintain the 6.7-inch specification of the Pixel 6 Pro model.
True, the timing of the release of the successors to the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will not be shifted much. So, usually the release of Google flagships falls on October. But this year, the Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro may be unveiled in September. No one guarantees that this prediction will come true. The decision will be made after studying the absence of any constraining factors. For example, the shortage of components and the timely release of the second generation of the Google Tensor chip.
@DSCCRoss said that the panels of the new Pixel 7 series will start shipping in May, a month earlier than the previous generation Pixel 6 series.
In another tweet, he mentioned that the Pixel 7 Pro will continue to use an LTPO panel that supports a high refresh rate of 120Hz.
The screen size change confirms previous reports that the Pixel 7 will be slightly smaller than the Pixel 6. In addition, from the early renderings, the Pixel 7 / 7 Pro generally maintains the same shape design as the Pixel 6 / 6 Pro.
In terms of processors, the Pixel 7/Pro models, code-named Cheetah and Panther, have recently been rumored to use the second-generation Google Tensor custom chipset and paired with Samsung’s Exynos 5300 modem.
As for the truth, please wait patiently for Google’s official announcement later this year.
