Google is reportedly heading towards ceramic materials with its future Pixel smartphones, according to a new rumor that sheds light on two of Google’s upcoming devices .
According to Digital Chat Station , Google is partnering with Foxconn to produce an unnamed Pixel flagship and Pixel foldable phone in China. This is somewhat surprising given that Google has previously moved production operations to Vietnam.
Even more intriguing is the source’s claim that the Pixel flagship phone in question is made of ceramic. Digital Chat Station also claims to be powered by a Tensor 2 processor chipset and feature a 2K display.
The Phone Claims to Use the IMX787 Sensor
However, previous rumors gave us a clue as to what Google has in store. Digital Chat Station had claimed via a Weibo post that the ceramic Pixel phone will feature a 50MP camera with IMX787 sensor . A previous leak also stated that the same sensor will be used for a high-end Pixel 7 model codenamed “Lynx” . According to 9to5Google, the IMX787 sensor will act as a telephoto camera.
The mysterious device is said to be a more expensive model than the Pixel 7 Pro, which is similar to the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. If the rumor is true, this will be the first Pixel model to feature ceramic material , unlike many of the best Android phones we’ve seen lately .
The Weibo post did not reveal anything new about Google ‘s Pixel foldable phone , which won’t be released until early next year.
