Yesterday, a leak was released about the Google Pixel 7 series that will use a newer display from Samsung. Google will be using the Tensor 2 SoC, which is also based on Samsung’s Exynos architecture, i.e., the same cores built on Samsung’s 5nm LPE manufacturing process. Although, Tenser 2 will use Google’s ML module, meaning it will use machine learning which google explains as it will do now what ML can do in the future, which implies AI capabilities. Google also mentions the use of Heterogeneous computing, which refers to systems that use more than one kind of processor or core. This information was given by one user with a connection to the Google News-Telegram group.
Samsung “S6E3HC3” was the codename for Google pixel 6 Pro; now, the leaked information in the logs suggests using an upgraded “S6E3HC4” Samsung display. The Samsung S6E3HC4 display that will be used in the Pixel 7 Pro. While the new Samsung S6E3HC4 display will retain the same resolution of 3,120 x 1,440 just as last year’s Pixel 6 Pro, there are, however, a few changes.
This display can achieve a luminosity of 600 NITS while in manual mode, which leads to 1000 NITS in HBM (high brightness mode).In addition, if the APL( a property of AMOLEDs called Average Pixel Level (APL), the number of pixels that are lit is expressed as a percent. A black screen is 0%, all-white is 100%, and a red/green/blue screen would be 33%) is set at Max HBM which means the brightness can be peaked at around 1200 NITS.
As for other specs, it is anticipated to use a screen size the same as Pixel 6 Pro’s 6.7-inch, with a variable refresh rate up to 1-120Hz. However, restrictions will be applied, leaks suggest, for 1hz is for things like the time, date, notifications, missed calls, and more or where something is not happening at all on the screen.
This seems a possibility, as the OLED displays from Samsung are considered the best in the world and imply the long relationship between Google & Android from the early days of 2009-2010.
Google’s partnership with Samsung seems to be more than just collaboration but strategic.
Google needs Samsung & Samsung needs Google, as Google deals in its primary area of data services and cloud computing. On the other hand, Samsung is the largest manufacturer of Android smartphones, but both lack an almost self-dependent ecosystem like Apple’s.
The Google Pixel 7 series was one of the most talked-about at the Google I/O event on May 11, 2022, and many people are curious about that, even though there are lots of leaks, rumors, and expectations that will all be unveiled in the fall of 2022.’
