Google Pixel 7 Mini could be in the works and could make its debut as part of the recently launched Pixel 7 series, according to a developer. The company recently released the source code for the Pixel 7 series, and the code references two codenames for unreleased Pixel phones. According to developer Kuba Wojciechowski, the latest source code of the Pixel 7 series includes references to two upcoming devices, codenamed “Felix” and “Lynx” which may be references to a foldable and a version of the flagship smartphone with a smaller screen. “Felix” apparently refers to the long-rumoured Pixel Fold and “Lynx” may refer to a third Pixel device, which could be the alleged Pixel 7 Ultra or Pixel 7 Mini.
Developer Kuba Wojciechowski took to Twitter to reveal the codenames for two new Pixel-branded handsets in Google’s source code. It is worth noting that the search giant is yet to officially confirm any additional devices in the Pixel 7 series. According to Wojciechowski, the recently released code suggests that the ultra-wide-angle and selfie cameras of the referenced “Lynx” will be equipped with Sony’s IMX712 sensors. Moreover, the device will switch from the BCM4389 WiFi/Bluetooth chip used on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 7, to Qualcomm’s WCN6740, according to the developer.

The display panel on the unconfirmed “Lynx” Pixel 7 devices will utilise the same 1080p display panel that was found on Pixel models with such as Pixel 6, Pixel 7, and Pixel 6a. However, the Pixel 7 Ultra is unlikely to feature a downgraded display as compared to the Pixel 7 Pro, considering that the “Ultra” moniker is generally used to signify top-end specifications and features, according to a report by Gizmochina.
