It turned out that Google's latest smartphone ``Pixel 7 Pro'' was disassembled into pieces and the cooling performance was improved from the previous model

On October 6, 2022, Google announced ``

Pixel 7/7 Pro '', the latest model of the Pixel series. A photo disassembling the high-end model Pixel 7 Pro has been released, and it is also clear that the Pixel 7 Pro has improved cooling performance compared to the Pixel 6 Pro.

The Pixel 7 Pro looks very similar to its predecessor, the Pixel 6 Pro, but a teardown reveals a few improvements. For example, the graphite thermal tape affixed to the right half of the terminal is affixed to cover part of the camera, SoC, and battery, but Pixel 7 Pro is better than Pixel 6 Pro (glossy black tape) (matte black tape) has a slightly larger surface area.

On the Pixel 6 Pro, multiple pieces of thermal tape are attached to avoid the mmWave antenna cable, but on the Pixel 7 Pro, the mmWave antenna cable is routed along the battery, so one large piece of thermal tape is used to separate the parts. It is possible to cover the whole.

The motherboard of Pixel 7 Pro looks like this.

Deep inside the motherboard is a large copper heatsink.

The Pixel 6 Pro also has graphite thermal tape around the USB-C port, but the Pixel 7 Pro does not have this. Still, there are improvements such as the Pixel 6 Pro SoC 'Tensor' being manufactured at the process node '5nm', while the Pixel 7 Pro SoC 'Tensor G2' is manufactured at '4nm'. Therefore, ``Pixel 7 Pro has a better cooling mechanism,'' said Ars Technica, an overseas media outlet.

In addition, according to PBKreviews, removing the display of Pixel 7 Pro is a ``fight with adhesive'', and it is difficult to remove the glass panel on the back from the metal housing part, so ``If the back glass breaks, the metal frame I have to replace it.' Yes.

Also, since the USB-C port is soldered to the main motherboard, it seems that if the charging port fails, it may cost a lot of money to repair.
