Google ‘Pipit’ foldable phone specs tipped over Geekbench listing; May come with Tensor SoC, 12 GB RAM


A new foldable Google smartphone with the code name “Pipit”, which is equipped with an octa-core processor, was spotted on Geekbench. The company is said to be working on a foldable smartphone that could have its in-house Tensor SoC under the hood, and the listing shows it could come with 12GB of RAM. The smartphone is also listed on Geekbench for Android 12. Google, which allegedly worked on the launch of a Pixel Fold smartphone last year, has yet to officially release details on a foldable handset that is in the works.

The listing for a new Google smartphone, codenamed Pipit, was discovered by MySmartPrice on Geekbench today. Gadgets 360 was able to independently verify the entry. According to the listing, the Google smartphone is equipped with an octa-core processor with two performance cores with 2.8 GHz, two cores with 2.25 GHz and four efficiency cores with 1.8 GHz. The handset could sport the company’s recently launched Google Tensor SoC from the Google Pixel 6 series, as the listing also mentions the presence of a Mali-G78 GPU.

The Google Pipit smartphone listing on Geekbench also states that the device has 12GB of RAM. The handset has a single-core score of 4,811 points and a multi-core score of 11,349 points on the Geekbench 4 list. For comparison: The current Google Pixel 6 benchmark on Geekbench 4 lists the single-core score with 4,758 points and the multi-core score with 11,038 points. Gadgets 360 couldn’t find a Geekbench 5 score for the Google Pipit smartphone.

Details of the company’s alleged foldable device were discovered by 9to5Google in the Google Camera APK back in November 2021. According to the publication, a Pixel smartphone codenamed Pipit was spotted with the older 12.2 megapixel IMX363 camera sensor (instead of the newer GN1 sensor users on the Pixel 6 series) running on the Pixel 3 smartphone of the company was used. Pipit is referred to as a foldable smartphone, which is being developed by the company, as the report mentions a reference to the word “Folded” in the camera app. As mentioned earlier, Google has not yet announced any plans for an upcoming foldable smartphone.
