Google Pixel smartphone enthusiasts are likely to be happy with this news, as the Google Pixel 7 series will be the first flagship offerings from the company that will debut in India since the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
Google has been launching only watered-down ‘A’ models of its flagship handsets. In fact, Google skipped the Google Pixel 5 series altogether. It recently launched the Pixel 6a, which followed the launch Pixel 4a in the country a couple of years ago.
Google Pixel 7 series of smartphones will come equipped with the company’s Google Tensor G2 SoC under the hood. The SoC could use the same combination of two Cortex-X1 cores, two Cortex-A76 cores, and four Cortex-A55 cores as its predecessor but offer improved performance. A recent report suggested that there could be a 12GB variant as well.
