Google Pixel 7 Mini spotted in Pixel 7 source code alongside foldable Pixel phone: report
According to the developer, the Google Pixel 7 Mini may be in development and could debut as part of the recently launched Pixel 7 series. The company recently released the source code for the Pixel 7 series, and the code references two codenames for yet-to-be-released Pixel phones. According to developer Cuba Wojciechowski, the latest source code for the Pixel 7 series contains references to two future devices, codenamed “Felix” and “Lynx”, which could be references to a foldable version of the flagship smartphone with a smaller screen. “Felix” appears to refer to the long-standing Pixel Fold, while “Lynx” could refer to a third Pixel device, which could be the alleged Pixel 7 Ultra or Pixel 7 Mini.
Developer Cuba Wojciechowski on Twitter revealed the codenames of two new Pixel-branded phones in Google’s source code. It’s worth noting that the search giant has yet to officially confirm any additional devices in the Pixel 7 series. According to Wojciechowski, the newly released code suggests the Lynx’s ultra-wide-angle and selfie cameras will feature Sony IMX712 sensors. Additionally, according to the developer, the device will switch from the BCM4389 WiFi/Bluetooth chip used in the Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 to the Qualcomm WCN6740.

The display panel on unconfirmed Lynx Pixel 7 devices will use the same 1080p display panel found on Pixel models such as the Pixel 6, Pixel 7, and Pixel 6a. However, the Pixel 7 Ultra is unlikely to have a lower quality display compared to the Pixel 7 Pro, given that the “Ultra” moniker is commonly used to refer to top-end specs and features, according to the report.
