Render of the Pixel Fold or Notepad
The other phone that Foxconn is reportedly working on is a new flagship that could be known as the Pixel 7 Ultra, which will have a Sony IMX787 image sensor. That particular sensor is not listed as one of the four expected to be used in the Pixel 7 series. The IMX787 is used in conjunction with a “sub-camera”, although it’s not clear what that means.
You might think this means the sensor will drive a periscope-based telephoto camera. After all, there is one in the Pixel 6 Pro. But Digital Chat Station says the Pixel 7 Ultra’s telephoto camera will use a 50MP sensor from Samsung, the ISOCELL GN1. This is the same sensor we should find on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
The tipster says a tech sample of the Pixel 7 Ultra has a 2K display and ceramic body. Even with Digital Chat Station’s track record, we have to see these two phones before we can believe it. A Pixel 7 Ultra sounds more exciting to this writer than a Pixel Fold/Notepad. Does it work with a Pixel pen? Right now the sky is the limit as you daydream about the features and specs we can find with such a device.
