Tensor 2 to be a step behind

The basic differentiator between pixel 6 from all pixels even from other android phones is the inclusion of a Google Tensor chip which enhanced many machine learning powered features, now first reveal that come out for Pixel7 series is unsurprisingly addition of second generation google tensor chip with model ‘GS201’

We already know plenty about Pixel 7 series and thanks to Google own disclosure, also we got the idea from the previous leaks that the design going be the same as pixel 6, as it also packed with a large camera block on the back just like the Google Pixel 6 Pro. This appears again to be a triple-lens camera, but this time around two of the lenses (likely the wide and ultra-wide) are grouped together, with a periscope lens off on its own to the right.

Screen Size

Some source suggests that the screen sizes could be 6.3 inches and 6.7 inches for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro respectively. The former would therefore be slightly smaller than the 6.4-inch Pixel 6.

Storage and Color options

There could be a choice of 128GB, 256GB or 512GB of storage in the standard Pixel 7, and color choices of black, coral, blue or white.

Mystery behind cloudripper

So, Cloudripper could be the SoC of Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, which is the second version of the Tensor chipset already in use on Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, which had the codename “Slider”.
More rumors reveals that Tensor 2 powered phones having the code names Cheetah (for the Pixel 7) and Panther (for the Pixel 7 Pro) respectively.
