Formula 1 has something called “foolish season” when there is no valuable news about the teams and drivers and journalists have to rely on rumors and speculation. Now the smartphone industry has been much the same over the summer when everyone seems to be waiting for the big fall reveals and launches. Google Pixel 7 is a perfect example. The next Pixel flagship series was just suggested at Google I/O, but leaks and rumors have been flying from side to side in recent weeks. And rightly so – we asked you about the Pixel 7, and our poll yielded surprising results!
Even though a leak revealed that Google’s Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will share many key specs with the Pixel 6 duo, people seem to be excited about the next generation of Google smartphones. Fast forward to the latest leak on the matter.
Google Pixel 7 series to use Samsung OLEDs
According to 9to5Google, will continue to use Samsung’s Pixel 7 series OLED panels. Google has reportedly copied the same two display drivers it used in the Pixel 6 lineup. The C10 (Cheetah) and P10 (Panther) are the display drivers used in the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, respectively. This also suggests that Google is sticking with Samsung panels from last year. And by “exact” we mean just that — not the same generation, but the same panels that shine in the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. That betrays the display specifications of Google’s next flagship phone.
Google Pixel 7 screen specs
The respective OLED panels bear the designation numbers S6E3FC3 and S6E3HC3 respectively. The more compact model – the vanilla Pixel 7 will have a 90Hz display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, while the Pro version will be equipped with the same 120Hz panel of its predecessor – with a resolution of 1440 x 3120.
Previously, there were rumors that the Pixel 7 would come with a smaller screen – a 6.2-inch panel, but knowing that it will use the exact same screen, the diagonal will come to 6.4-inches. The same goes for the Pixel 7 Pro – the screen will be more than 6.71 inches.
