Aside from a new camera bump, a new color scheme, and the new Tensor 2 processor, what could Google possibly have in store for the Pixel 7 Series?
Google’s homebrew processor, the Google Tensor 2, will make its debut on the Google Pixel 7. A huge update on the GPU, NPU, modem and others will be expected from the Pixel 7.
Given that the Tensor chips isn’t exactly on par with the Snapdragons and MediaTeks of the world, the Google’s advantage is like the situation on Apple’s: more optimized and accelerated because it’s more exclusive and integrated only for a handful of models.
According to leaks, the Pixel 7 will have a decent 6.3″ OLED display that’s in Full HD+, and 90Hz refresh rate. Maybe 120Hz is better, since this is considered a flagship but yeah.
The cameras however, are a whole different story: the Pixel 7 will have a 50MP main and 12MP ultrawide, and it uses the same GN1 and Sony IMX381 sensors. The selfie cam however has an 11MP lens now from an 8MP one.
The Google Pixel 7’s battery will get a slight increase from 4,614mAh to 4,700mAh now. The charging speed is around 30W, but it isn’t official yet so better take it with a grain of salt for now.
An 8GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB will be the choices, same as the Pixel 6. The Pixel 7 will get the latest Android 13, but all other current Pixels will have a quicker update to that.
Both the vanilla Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be announced on October 6, and will go on pre-order later that day, with the shipping is on October 13. It is rumored that the Pixel 7 will cost the same as their predecessors, which is around $600 for the vanilla Pixel 7, and $900 for the Pro version. The Pixels will be also available for the first time in India.
