Google gave us a look at the Pixel 7 series at its I/O event earlier this month and told that they will be launching later this year. Apart from showing some images of the devices, the company said during the I/O that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are going to be powered by the next generation Tensor SoC and Android 13 out-of-the-box. Apart from this, the company did not reveal any other information about the smartphone.
A new report spotted online has revealed some of the display specifications of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. Spotted by 9to5Google, the report mentions a leak that originated from the Android open source project where two new display drivers manufactured by Google were discovered. These drivers are labeled C10 and P10.
‘C’ stands for Cheetah, codename for Pixel 7 and ‘P’ stands for Panther, which is codename for Pixel 7 Pro. The report suggests that the display specs of the Pixel 7 series are going to be almost identical to those of its predecessors – the Pixel 6 series. The Pixel 7 is expected to feature a Full HD+ resolution display (2400 x 1080 pixels) with a 90Hz refresh rate. The screen resolution of Pixel 7 Pro is 3120 x 1440 pixels and is going to support 120Hz refresh rate.
It is expected that the Pixel 7 series smartphones will also sport the same display panel made by Samsung as the Pixel 6 series. The report also states that Google is working on a new version of the Pixel 6 Pro display that could be included in the Pixel 7 Pro. This enhanced display should improve image quality, brightness, or battery consumption, or a combination of these because the resolution and refresh rate will remain the same.
Additionally, the report mentions that Google is going to make the display panel of the Pixel 7 1mm thinner and 2mm smaller than that of the Pixel 6 to accommodate the smaller size of the device. No changes are expected in the Pixel 7 Pro as compared to the Pixel 6 Pro.
