Since the release of the Pixel XL in 2016, Google has continued to release new smartphones from the Pixel range every year, each more breathtaking than the next. Among the releases this year will appear the Google Pixel 7 and 7 pro.
What does Google have in store for us this time around?
Everything you need to know about the Google Pixel 7 and 7 pro
The announcement of the two Pixel 7 and 7 pro was made during the Google I / O (annual conference of Google developers). Quite unexpectedly for all, the brand has just teased the release of smartphones, without publishing full details on the device. Many rumors are spreading around the two devices, but nothing surprising for the designers.
Google Pixel 7 and 7 pro release date and price
The release of the Pixel 7 and 7 pro is scheduled for the end of 2022. In the meantime, you can use the Pixel 6 which is so far the best seller from the Mountain View company. As for the prices of these new phones from Google, they are for the moment a secret.
Google Pixel 7 and 7 pro design
The design of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will resemble that of the Pixel 6 for a while. Some improvements have nevertheless been made.
Perfectly visible on the back of the phone, the camera on the back of the smartphone will in this case be made of a 100% recycled aluminum part. This would give a premium gadget look to said smartphones. This modification comes after the complaint of the users of Pixel 6. Indeed, they affirm that the block photo would be the first part of the telephone to be damaged. The allocation of aluminum guarantees longevity to the product.
According to the words of youtubeur Marques Brownlee (MKBHD), the brand maintains the glossy glass present on the back of smartphones to the detriment of a matte coating.
De what remains of the design, the two smartphones are very close to the old releases. Except that the wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle sensors will be surrounded by an elongated bubble. The third sensor present on the Pixel 7 pro in the form of a telephoto lens will be within a punch.
The designs of the Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro were revealed early on. This was no doubt a maneuver to dissuade analysts and users. However, the front side was not presented. Could this be a way to keep the mystery of an upcoming reveal? The idea of a double or triple hidden photo sensor is at least welcome, or a facial recognition system? Nothing is certain at this time.
It is true that several months before the official release of the Google Pixel 7 and 7 pro. And yet leaks are already noted. At this stage, protection of the design and all possible modifications are of paramount necessity.
Strategic choice or not, the look of the Google Pixel 7 and the Google 7 pro is more or less known to everyone. With the previews of the presentation, Google gives itself full possession of the real information despite the multiple speculations that fill the web.
Pixel 7 and pro screen sizes
As mentioned during Google I / O, the Pixel 7 screen goes from 6.4 inches to 6.3 inches. This variation will not go unnoticed and will be felt when it comes to taking the smartphone in hand. However, this falls under a general standard in order to integrate the list of premium smartphones. The brands Xiaomi (with the Xiaomi 12) and Samsung (with the Galaxy 22) have also reduced the size of their screens this year.
On the side of the Google Pixel 7 Pro, the screen remains unchanged. We observe the maintenance of the diagonal line of 6.7 inches. It’s an understanding and sensible choice for the best-equipped device in the entire Pixel line.
Pixel 7 and 7 Pro: Photo references?
Both models help to perpetuate the reference status in terms of photos of smartphones in the Pixel range.
However, no precise or relevant details have been disclosed on the composition of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro photo module. Leaker Yogesh Brar suggests that the photo characteristics of these two smartphones may be the same as those of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 pro.
This is typical Google behavior. From Pixel 2 to Pixel 5 the company has used identical sensors in order to have a strong optimization.
A little after the conference, the possible colors could be revealed. These are black, white and lemon yellow colors for the Google Pixel 7 while the Google Pixel 7 pro comes in white, gray and green. Other colors may be on sale.
Looking closer, we notice that the back of the smartphones is plain. On the Pixel 6 two colors were present: one at the top of the block, and another below the latter.
Google Pixel 7 and 7 pro processor and operating system
It’s official ! The Google Pixel 7 and 7 pro will be equipped with the second generation of Google Tensor SoC processor is the Tensor 2. This is excellent news given that this chip allowed previous models to easily manage the algorithm dedicated to artificial intelligence and to rendering photos and videos nickels.
Google must also increase the power of the new chip because the Tensor 1 was struggling a lot and particularly on the graphics part.
Information shared by Google, the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro work with the most anticipated system of the year 2022 in terms of novelties: Android 13.
What you must remember
Despite the announcement of the release of Google Pixel 7 and 7 pro, many gray areas persist. The information of the battery that will be incorporated is non-existent. It is possible that Google will match the 4614 mAh capacity of the Pixel 6 and the 5003 mAh of the Pixel 6 Pro.
The same goes for the charging power which we hope will be above 30W of the Pixel 6 which is quite slow compared to its competitors in 2022.
