As per the Geekbench 4 listing, the Google Pipit features an octa-core processor under the hood with a peak clock speed of 2.8GHz. The device’s processor has a base clock speed of 1.8GHz. For GPU, there is a Mali G78. Based on these specs, we speculate that the chipset is Google’s newly launched Tensor. The SoC has two cores clocked at 2.8GHz and two other cores clocking 2.25GHz. There are four efficiency cores clocked at 1.8GHz.
The listing further reveals that the foldable phone from Google has 12GB of RAM under the hood. We can expect the foldable phone to come with 256GB or 512GB of internal storage. It runs Android 12 out of the box. Google has announced Android 12L for large screen devices or foldable phones. We can expect “Pipit” to feature the same.
There were reports of the Google Pixel Fold getting cancelled as the company felt it would not be as competitive to succeed in the market due to stiff competition. However, it looks like Google is indeed planning to work on the launch. There is no official word yet so let’s wait for more details in the coming days.
