Google will soon release the Pixel 7, continuing its tradition of upgrading its smartphone lineup every year. We anticipate the same general design as the 2021 Pixel, with 5G compatibility, Face Unlock, dual eSIM, and an under-display fingerprint sensor, despite only a brief mention during Google I/O 2022 that this phone will bring a new Tensor CPU.
What Date Will the Pixel 7 Be Available?
During the Google I/O event in May 2022, Google announced the Pixel 7. The new Pixel phones will be unveiled during the following Google event on October 6. The exact launch date of the phone appears to be October 13.
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will go on sale on October 13—exactly one week after the announcement—according to leaker Jon Prosser, who is well-known for properly disclosing several features and release dates in the tech industry. This date has been verified by a product listing on Amazon.
What the Pixel 7 Has
All those updates will be implemented in the Pixel 7 at launch since Android 13 was released for the Pixel in August 2022.
Foreground Services Task Manager to better manage running services, per-app language preferences, 24-hour battery consumption notifications, and further advanced privacy controls are a few examples of what is included in this list.
Pixel 7 Hardware and Specs
The Pixel 6 features Google’s Tensor processor. It came with a number of additional capabilities and used less power. Google’s magazine page for the Pixel 7 makes reference to Google Tensor G2, which it claims would enhance speech recognition, security, and photo and video quality.
According to a 9to5Google leak, both the Pixel 7 and the 7 Pro’s front-facing cameras will handle 4K video. Since only the Pro model of the Pixel 6 series’ selfie camera could produce 4K video, this is significant.
Regarding the phone’s screen size, Ross Young has information. He claims that the Pixel 7 will be smaller than the Pixel 5a of 2021, measuring just 6.3 inches, as opposed to growing steadily since the 2017 Pixel. According to rumors, the Pro variant would have a 6.7-inch screen, the same size as the Pixel 6 Pro.
