A Sneak Peek at the Google Pixel 7
In May 2022, Google gave an early sneak peek of the Pixel 7 at a developer conference and we now know what the phone looks like. There's an updated camera lens on the iconic horizontal bar, which is now made of aluminum.
We also know that the Pixel 7 will employ the second-generation Tensor processor, which will open up all kinds of AI and machine learning capabilities, as we expected.
But there are still a lot of unresolved concerns regarding this phone, and that's understandable given that it won't be available until later in 2022. More Pixel 7 speculations will undoubtedly surface in the coming months, painting a clearer picture of how Google's phone will compete with smartphones like the Galaxy S22 and the impending iPhone 14 for a spot on the best phones list.
Here's everything we know so far about the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, as well as more rumours regarding Google's upcoming flagship.
The display specs for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro have been revealed, and the Pro may feature a smart upscaling mechanism to preserve battery life.
The most significant predicted differences may be seen in our Google Pixel 7 versus Google Pixel 6 comparison.
So far, Google has only said that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro would be released in the fall. If we had to guess, we'd mark October on our calendars because that's when Google usually unveils its autumn flagship update.
The Pixel 7 isn't going to be the next Google phone. Google also revealed the Pixel 6a, a $449 cheap phone that shares more in common with last year's Pixel 6 than the future flagships, during the same I/O presentation where we received our Pixel 7 peek. Preorders for the Pixel 6a begin on July 21, with the phone shipping on July 28. The decks will then be cleared for the Pixel 7 launch.
Google will most likely keep the Pixel 7 pricing under wraps until the autumn launch. To put things in perspective, the Pixel 6 costs $599, while the Pixel 6 Pro costs $899. That's less than what other phone manufacturers charge for their top models—the Galaxy S22, for example, begins at $799, $200 more than the Pixel 6.
As a result, we're hoping Google can keep the Pixel 7 costs consistent. It's helped Google's phones stand out from the crowd, and it's likely contributed to the Pixel 6 becoming the best-selling Pixel in the company's history.
