Render of the Pixel Fold or Notepad
The other phone that Foxconn is allegedly working on is a new flagship that could be known as the Pixel 7 Ultra which will feature a Sony IMX787 image sensor. That particular sensor is not listed as one of the four expected to be used on the Pixel 7 series. The IMX787 is being used in conjunction with a “sub-camera” although what that means is not clear.
You might think that it means that the sensor will drive a periscope-based telephoto camera. After all, there is one in the Pixel 6 Pro. But Digital Chat Station says that the Pixel 7 Ultra’s telephoto camera will employ a 50MP sensor made by Samsung, the ISOCELL GN1. This is the same sensor that we should find on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
The tipster says that an engineering sample of the Pixel 7 Ultra has a 2K display and a ceramic body. Even with Digital Chat Station’s decent record, we need to see these two phones before we can believe it. A Pixel 7 Ultra sounds more exciting to this writer than a Pixel Fold/Notepad. Will it work with a Pixel pen? Right now, the sky is the limit as you daydream about the features and specs that we might find with such a device.
