Google launched its new Pixel device, but not all questions were answered. Now there is more information.
New Google devices are on everyone’s lips and there is still much to discuss in terms of expected or undisclosed functions Over the past few days various new information has come to light through source code, AMAs and other background information. We have the most important points for you.
New information and unanswered questions about technology
actually UWB was planned for the Pixel Watch 2, but then scrapped. Its context is not known. I don’t know why Google ships the Tensor G3 chipset with a slightly lower CPU frequency; A high number of these are referenced in the source code. Also unknown until now was the brand new Samsung E7 OLED panel, which is on the Pixel 8 Pro and is very powerful.
Some features didn’t jump
Desktop mode, which you want to implement via USB-C, didn’t make it. Although you can – for the root – The Pixel 8 enables video output via USB-C, but has still No PC mode. Hopefully coming soon. It also lacks 8K video recording for the camera, although this feature was planned. And a new super slow motion was also suspended without further ado.
as far as The satellite function that was originally made for Android 14 is also not there. Google says it’s still working on it, but can’t give a date yet. Last but not least, this also applies to the Pixel 8 series’ lossless audio output via USB-C, which is planned and will come with the next update.
I’m now even more excited to see when Android 14 QPR1 brings the new features to Pixel devices in December 2023 or January 2024.
