Google Pixel 8 Pro Utilizes Samsung’s E7 Display
New information about the Google Pixel 8 Pro has been revealed, specifically regarding the display it uses. This information comes from a tipster who dug around the Pixel 8 series’ source code. It appears that the Pixel 8 Pro is the first phone to utilize Samsung’s E7 display. This display is an AMOLED LTPO display, which is highly regarded as the latest and greatest in smartphone display technology. In fact, it has received praise from DXOMARK and currently holds the top spot on their list.
Changes to Tensor G3 Clock Speeds
The tipster also shared some information about the Tensor G3, Google’s custom-designed chipset used in the Pixel 8 series. They reported that the CPU cores in the Tensor G3 had different frequencies initially, but Google decided to lower the clock speeds. While the reasons for this change are unknown, it is speculated that heat management may have been a consideration. Despite the lower clock speeds, the Tensor G3 still remains a highly capable SoC based on initial reviews.
Two Packaging Options for Tensor G3
According to the tipster, the Tensor G3 comes in two packaging options. One is called FOPLP, which is used in the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. The other option, iPoP, is likely to be used in the Pixel 8a. This suggests that Google has different configurations for their custom chipset based on the device models.
