Google Pixel 7 Pro low-level specifications leak from a prototype. Pixel news has been circulating lately. With hundreds of these prototype devices out in the world, finding specs for Google’s next-generation devices has been much easier thanks to snooping around in the device logs.
It is now confirmed that the Snapdragon 855 will also use a 4+2+2 CPU core design with Cortex-A55 cores and will also leave in the two “big” Cortex-X1 hearts that were part of the Tensor 2 chipset. The original design used old A76 cores instead of the latest Cortex-A78 (the last of the ARMv8 medium cores). It is not known what Google has planned for other hardware, though.

The particular unit under review has a Samsung-made S6E3HC4 panel – with improved brightness, 1080p native mode, and 3,120 x 1,440-pixel resolution. This is why this increase in maximum brightness of 1,000 nits and 100% APL (the entire screen is on).
The screen’s resolution will remain at 3,120 x 1,440 pixels. This most recent iteration of prototype log snooping includes the Cirrus Logic CS40L26 processor, which is one generation newer than what is found in the Pixel 6 Pro.
Hence, we can probably expect better haptic feedback from the Pixel 7 Pro. Finally, the STMicroelectronics ST54K NFC chip has now been swapped for a simpler ST21NFC, which no longer includes UWB functionality on the chip itself. That does not mean UWB has been removed from the Pixel 7 Pro. A separate chip will just handle it.
