Google Pixel leaks hint at two new models, a new chipset, and Android 14

Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro.

Google has apparently started working on the next generation of Pixel devices.

According to WinFuture, the two work-in-progress handsets are codenamed “Shiba” and “Husky”, with a new system-on-chip (SoC) and some details about what they might have.

Publicly available source code indicates that “Shiba” and “Husky” will run Android 14, also codenamed “Upside Down Cake”. The operating system runs on a new SoC codenamed “Zuma”, that’s developed by Google and its chipmaking partner, Samsung.

There are no specific details about Zuma yet, but it’s likely to be based on Exynos 2300 with Google’s optimisations around machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Shiba and Husky will have 12GB RAM. Shiba will also carry a screen resolution of 2,268 x 1,080 pixels (Full HD+), while Husky gets 2,822 x 1,344 pixels. 

WinFuture contends that it’s pure speculation if Shiba and Husky will be Google Pixel 8 and 8 Pro. But, it’s also said that Shiba and Husky are not foldables or tablets, which would leave us with classic bar-shaped smartphones. It’s also not clear if these are just test products by Google’s hardware team.
