Google has already teased its Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro flagship phones during its I/O keynote this year. But according to leaker and developer Kuba Wojciechowski, these may not be the only flagships the company is working on. The rest of the rumored models of Google’s flagship phones will be released this year.
While browsing the GS101 camera hardware abstraction layer (HAL) for Android 13 Beta 4, the leaker found “Lynx (L10)”, believed to be the codename for the rumored Google phone. Wojciechowski also shared the camera specs for the supposedly high-end Google phone. It will have the same 50-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL GN1 primary sensor as the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
The “Lynx” phone may also have a 64-megapixel Sony IMX787 telephoto sensor and an unannounced 13-megapixel Sony IMX712 front-facing camera. This is the first time Google has used a new sensor.
In addition to the “Lynx,” the leaker also found details of the camera sensor for the foldable Pixel device codenamed Passport or Pipit (P7). The code shows that the aforementioned foldable device will have a Samsung ISOCELL GN1 sensor, a Sony IMX363 sensor, a Sony IMX386 sensor, and a Sony IMX355 sensor. However, details about the camera resolution are not yet clear.
However, Kuba hasn’t mentioned whether the foldable phone is the rumored Pixel Fold or another model. However, we’ve heard the code name “Passport” before. The “Passport” foldable phone was supposed to launch in the fourth quarter of 2021, but Google apparently failed to deliver.
Google is said to launch its first foldable phone in the fourth quarter of 2022. The search giant is also developing its first tablet, the Pixel Notepad, but there’s no word yet on when it will be available.
