It appears that Google is following Samsung and Apple’s lead and switching to a premium ultra-flagship model. The search giant seems to be planning to manufacture three smartphones under the Pixel 7 series. The company may release a Pixel 7 Ultra in addition to the regular Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, as per tipster Digital Chat Station via Weibo.
He claims that Google is working with Foxconn, which also makes iPhones, to produce a secret Pixel flagship as well as the long-rumored Pixel foldable phone in China. This is unexpected, considering that Google switched its manufacturing operations from China to Vietnam back in 2020. What’s more intriguing is the tipster’s assertion that the upcoming Pixel smartphone, which hasn’t been given a name, would be carved out of ceramic materials.
Google has already used metal, glass, and plastic in its phones, but it has never utilised ceramic. Therefore, if the tipster’s statements are accurate, the first Pixel smartphone made of ceramic may be arriving shortly, possibly by the next quarter.

The ceramic Pixel has very few details available out in the public domain. But according to the report, it will include a 2K display with a punch-hole in the centre for the selfie camera. The Tensor 2 processor, which is also used in the future Pixel 7 smartphones, will power this alleged phone. The smartphone is also believed to contain a periscope lens and a 50MP camera. Additionally, the tipster specifies a Sony IMX787 64 MP sensor that could be used as a telephoto lens. How this purported ceramic Pixel stacks up against iPhones and Galaxy S22 Ultras will be intriguing to watch.
