Leaks about the Pixel 7 just won’t stop, will they? New information about the 7 and 7 Pro models is out now hinting that the phones could arrive earlier than before. Some information about the kind of displays that will form part of both the phones has also leaked.
Well-known tipster Ross Young has revealed through a tweet that the Google Pixel 7 will ship with a 6.3-inch display instead of the 6.4-inch screen that’s present on the Pixel 6. As for the Pixel 7 Pro, it might stick to the same size as the current Pro model – 6.71 inches.
Additionally, the Google Pixel 7 Pro is being claimed to get an LTPO panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. While the current Pixel 6 Pro also has a 120Hz panel, the presence of the LTPO technology means it will be able to bring the refresh rate down to 1Hz when it’s not needed, thus saving battery life.
The tweet in question also mentions that the panel shipments of the upcoming Google phones may start in May, which is one month earlier than last year. This could mean that the phones may get launched earlier or arrive in more markets this time around.
A while ago, apparent renders of the Pixel 7 Pro had leaked online, revealing the design of the device. They showed that the camera strip on the back had larger camera units than those on the Pixel 6 Pro, suggesting that updated sensors could make their way into the handset this year.
Besides, the Pixel 7 series will most likely ship with the second-gen Tensor SoC. As for the first-gen Tensor SoC, it could find a second home in the Pixel 6a that’s scheduled to arrive soon.
