Some information regarding the Pixel 7 Pro surfaced yesterday, thanks to a bricked prototype unit. Amongst that info, it was revealed that the device will utilize Samsung’s S6E3HC4, which is a bit different than the unit on the Pixel 6 Pro. Mishaal Rahman has just confirmed that information, while he also shared some additional info, confirming that the Pixel 7 Pro display will be brighter than the one on the Pixel 6 Pro.
The Pixel 7 Pro display will be brighter than the one on the Pixel 6 Pro
In other words, the Pixel 7 Pro’s display will offer higher maximum brightness than the panel on its predecessor. In manual mode, the Pixel 7 Pro brightness will go up to 600 nits, while it went up to 500 nits on the Pixel 6 Pro.
If you end up utilizing adaptive brightness, the Pixel 7 Pro can go all the way up to 1,000 nits. The Pixel 6 Pro capped out at 800 nits in that mode. That is not a huge difference, but it’s a welcomed one.
The Pixel 7 Pro will utilize a QHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, by the way. Chances are it will, once again, be curved, as it was on the Pixel 6 Pro. These reports do confirm that the two panels won’t be identical, though.
The Pixel 7 Pro prototypes ended up being available to purchase online, but Google quickly wiped them clean. Even bricked units did reveal some information, though.
The Pixel 7 & 7 Pro are coming later this year with the second-gen Google Tensor SoC
Google did confirm that both the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will be coming later this year. In fact, the company showed us some renders of the two devices during Google I/O last month. Google probably wanted to get the jump on rumors and leaks.
The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will both be fueled by the second-gen Google Tensor SoC. That is also something Google confirmed during Google I/O. The two phones will likely end up having similar camera hardware, but software improvements are expected.
