  • Pixel 7 Pro’s Tensor 2 SoC may not be that big of a performance bump.

Google Tensor 2 SoC

Google Pixel 7 Pro(₹ 69240 at amazon) is going to launch in the fall only. And, as is tradition, the Google phone is struggling to keep itself away from leaks. The company had shown off the phone’s outer design at the Google I/O 2022. But a new leak (via AndroidPolice>) has divulged the design of its underlying chipset, i.e., Tensor 2 SoC. The discovery comes from people in the Google News Telegram channel who first got a Pixel 7 prototype. Although the device was in a bricked state, they then managed to mine details about Tensor 2 SoC and other Pixel 7 Pro specifications from the device boot logs.

Let’s unpack the findings.

Google Pixel 7 Pro Leak: Tensor 2 SoC, Samsung Display, And Codenames

 

The first of the findings is that the Pixel 7 Pro will be using a Samsung S6E3HC4 panel on the front. This will be an upgrade over the Pixel 6 Pro’s Samsung S6E3HC3 display, but how much of an upgrade is left to see.

Speaking of upgrades, the second-gen Tensor processor doesn’t seem to be that big. The boot logs reveal the phone is having Cortex A55 cores which is part of the Arm V8 design and so that hints at what the rest of the setup could be. Our guess is 2x Cortex X1+ 2x Cortex A78+ 4x Cortex A55. Since this isn’t much different from the original Tensor SoC, the performance gains are likely to be slight.

Besides these, we also learn about the codenames for the forthcoming Pixel 7 phones — "Panther" is for the regular Pixel 7, "Cheetah" is the Pixel 7 Pro, and "Felix" could be the Pixel 7a.

That’s about it. But, we suspect more such leaks in the months and weeks leading up to the launch. The Pixel 7 launch is likely in October 2022. Let’s see.
