We’ve been wondering what was inside the Palm Pixi since it was first announced – specifically, how would it vary from the Pre? Looks like we’re finally getting some (leaked) information on what exactly is going to be inside.
Qualcomm leaked some information recently, and it’s looking like the Pixi will have the new MSM7627 chipset, which is going to be close to the same performance as the Pre, including supporting OpenGL 2.0 for graphics. While they’ve nixed the WiFi and bumped the camera res and screen size down a bit, it’s look pretty similar when you get deep down under the hood.
Here’s what Qualcomm has to say:
The high-performance MSM7627™ chipset solution is designed to enable mass-market devices with advanced functionality and rich multimedia capabilities that take advantage of the broadband data speeds available through 3G networks worldwide.
The MSM7627 solution features an industry-leading level of integration, enabling devices with high-end functionality to be slimmer, sleeker and last longer on a single battery charge.
Powerful multimedia capabilities integrated into the MSM7627 chipset translate to a richer, more compelling experience while browsing the web, accessing online applications, playing 3D games, capturing high-resolution pictures and video, and more.
And the full technical spec on the Pixi:
* Two ARM cores integrated into a single chip – a dedicated CPU core and a dedicated modem processor – for an unparalleled level of integration:
o 1. 600MHz applications processor with floating point unit and L2 cache
o 2. 400MHz modem processor
* Supports both CDMA2000® 1xEV-DO Rev. A and UMTS HSDPA 7.2Mbps/HSUPA 5.76Mbps, and GSM
* In addition to the two ARM cores, features 320MHz application DSP for multimedia supporting full 30 fps WVGA encode/decode, 200MHz hardware-accelerated 3D graphics core supporting OPEN GL 2.0, high-resolution camera, integrated GPS
* 12mm x 12mm footprint
* Optimized power consumption
