Google Pixel 7 series going to support Bluetooth LE Audio (LC3 codec). New findings by 9to5Google have suggested that the upcoming Pixel 7 series may support a new Bluetooth codec. ‘Bluetooth LE Audio’ is a term used to describe Bluetooth audio, which was supported using the LC3 codec until Android 13 brought support for it using the LC3 codec.
The results can improve sound quality and overall listening experience. According to recent changes found in its code base, it appears as though the LGD63640_11-S4A_P22_P23A configuration XML file has been associated with these models.

The “Pixel 7” refers to both the Pixel 7a and Pixel 7 Pro, while “P23a” references a future version of the Pixel 7a not yet announced – the former being released in autumn 2019. This exchange indicates that Google has added support for this new Bluetooth LE Audio feature on this chip set through a feature drop update coming soon.
‘LC3 audio codec’ offers more efficiency when compressing sound than classic (higher quality) options like MFG and A2DP. Using machine learning, we can speculate that Tensor’s second-generation hardware (namely: its T2254-L011 chipset) might be supporting LC3 audio in some capacity –
