Today, the first details of the upcoming Google Pixel 7 series have been exposed online. The Google Pixel 7 series is expected to feature a second-gen Tensor chip.

According to reports, the chipset will power the Google Pixel 7 series featuring a Samsung 5300 Exynos Modem for connectivity.

Recall that the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are powered by the Tensor GS101 chipset and are codenamed “Oriole” and “Raven,” respectively, while the Cheeta and Panther are the codenames for the upcoming Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, respectively. 

A Tensor processor with the model number GS201 and the codename “Cloudripper” is being tested, according to 9to5Google.

The Exynos modem is linked to three more codenames in addition to the Cloudripper. Let’s start with Cheeta and Panther, which are rumored to be the Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, respectively. Pixel gadgets have always been given a codename that is related to fish or other sea creatures.

From the original Pixel smartphone, Sailfish, to the most recent Pixel smartphone with a sea life codename, Pixel 5 with Redfin, all have a sea life codename. Oriole and Raven were the codenames for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. These are all bird names, followed by Pixel 6a with Bluejay and Pixel notepad with Pipit.

The firm is shifting its codename scheme to an animal name with the Pixel 7 series, implying that each generation of Pixel phones will have a different codename scheme.

Returning to the third codename associated with the Exynos modem, “Ravenclaw,” at first glance, it appears to be a Hogwarts house allusion. Still, unless Google has anything magical planned for the Pixel 7 series, things may be different.

The codename “Whitefin” was given to the initial Tensor chipset, which replaced the Snapdragon 765 SoC on the Pixel 5 handset for testing purposes.

The codename was a combination of Whitechapel from the Tender chipset and Redfin from Pixel 5. Ravenclaw might also be Raven from the Pixel 6 Pro, with claw being a feline reference to the Pixel 7.

However, the Google Pixel Foldable smartphone is rumored to be in the works, with a Q3 2022 manufacturing start and a Q4 2022 debut, alongside the Google Pixel 7 series. Stay connected to Techgenyz for the latest updates about the upcoming smartphone.
