Pixel 7’s official unveiling, but an Android 13 Developer Preview code dive from 9to5Google has uncovered the first “concrete details” of 2022’s rumored Google flagships.
As the predecessor generation, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will come powered by Google’s second-generation in-house Tensor chipset. The devices are seen with model number ‘GS201’ and the internal codename “Cloudripper.”
The site had previously found evidence that the second-generation Tensor chip due to power the Pixel 7 is the ‘GS201.’ Now, some further digging into the Android 13 Developer Preview by the site’s source Cstark27 has found that the new chip is apparently linked to an unreleased Samsung modem with the model number ‘g5300b.’ Given that the current Pixel 6 is linked to ‘g5123b,’ which is the Exynos Modem 5123, it would make sense for this new model to be the Exynos Modem 5300.
Surprisingly, a third Pixel device with codename attached to the Exynos Modem 5300 has been spotted as well, so we might see three phones under the Pixel 7 series in 2022. Recently Google accidentally confirmed Pixel 6a existence, and leakster Max Jambor tipped that Pixel 6a will go official sometime in May.
By further delving into the Android 13 code, 9to5Google then found that the new modem is in turn linked to two devices with the codenames Cheetah and Panther — which the site believes to be the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro respectively. In other words, it looks like both upcoming devices will use the GS201 Tensor chipset.
As per the rumors, it could be the yet-to-be-released Pixel 6a or the unreleased Pixel 5a in the county. The upcoming Google Pixel device will soon be certified by the BIS soon. It could be either the unreleased Pixel 6a, or the Pixel 5a from last year which didn’t make it to India.
