The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro served as a symbol of the company’s concentration on the premium smartphone market, and it appears that legacy will only continue to grow. The Pixel 7’s design is already known, but one reliable source claims that Google is also developing a ceramic-based Pixel phone.

Foxconn, the same company that makes the iPhone, is building two of Google’s forthcoming phones in China, according to Digital Chat Station made the claim on Weibo .

That is really unexpected given that Google moved its manufacturing away from China in recent years and is now producing Pixels in Vietnam. That shouldn’t, however, have a significant impact on those gadgets as a whole.

What do these two gadgets do?

One is the persistently rumored Pixel foldable, also referred as as the Pixel Notepad. It’s encouraging to know that the debut of that device is still on schedule even though this post just reiterates that it will be a foldable in the same vein as a Galaxy Fold.

As you may remember, we predicted that Google’s Pixel foldable will probably look like the Oppo Find N and use the company’s older 12-megapixel sensors. But at this point, it’s difficult to tell exactly what Google has planned due to numerous delays. But only last week, we discovered active development of code for the Pixel Notepad.

The other gadget at question in this case is a Google Pixel phone made of ceramic. That would be the first Pixel device to use ceramic if that information proves to be accurate. To now, Google has primarily made its smartphones out of glass, metal, and plastic.

This device is characterized as a flagship with Tensor 2, a 2K display with a hole in it, and a comparable camera setup with a 50MP camera and periscope lens. However, it is not quite obvious what this device might be.

The use of a Sony IMX787 camera is also mentioned in this post, which is consistent with a recent rumor about Lynx, a third Pixel device that may be released as a more expensive flagship (similar to the Galaxy S22 Ultra) or, as we previously hypothesized, merely a test-bed for Google’s camera development. According to this article, Google is hiring Foxconn to manufacture the product, which strongly means it will be made available to the general public.

The IMX787 is a 64MP sensor, higher in resolution than the 48MP sensor used for the Pixel 6 Pros 4x telephoto lens, and looks to be employed as a telephoto camera. The physical size of this sensor, in particular, is extremely noteworthy because it is identical to the Samsung GN1 sensor that Google employs for its main camera.
