Following the launch of Pixel 6 and Pixel 6a, Google has two brand new smartphone models up their sleeve – Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. Powered by the next-gen Google Tensor G2 processor, the models come with the latest Android 13 and an immaculate aluminum enclosure and sleek design.
If you are considering making this purchase for yourself, now is the time to jump the big guns. We have sorted all the expected specifications in detail.
Sleekest Design Yet
Google isn’t stopping with the native processor with the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. The two new smartphones will feature the sleekest and most lightweight design, made with 100% recycled content.
The Pixel 7 features a 6.3” display with narrow bezels for better visuals. Not just that, the model is designed with zirconia-blasted aluminum, which feels and looks premium in the hands. The model will also be available in three color options – Snow, Obsidian and brand-new Lemongrass.
As for the Pixel 7 Pro, the device is equipped with a 6.7” immersive display panel with a polished aluminum frame and a camera bar for expansive visual experience. Not just that, even this model will come in three color options – Snow, Obsidian and a new Hazel color.
Android 13 out of the Box
The Pixel 7 will be shipped with Android 13 out of the box, offering users with the best Android experience. The variety of security features with a host of customization abilities is definitely going to transform user experience for the better.
The new OS will offer a range of personalization tools that enable users to recolor the icons, change the wallpapers and even assign specific languages to individual apps.
Improved Camera Quality
If you are into taking pictures and videos, the new Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro won’t disappoint. The magnification with 8x in Pixel 7 and 30x in Pixel 7 Pro allow users to take crisp and sharp images, even from a distance.
The models also feature a dedicated telephoto lens, 2x in Pixel 7 and 10x in Pixel 7 Pro. This allows users to magnify on their images and videos without distorting the quality of the final shot.
For macro shots, the Pixel HDR+ photo quality renders some of the best clicks, retaining the quality of the shot, color balance and the vibrancy and focus.
But, the cherry on top is the Photo Unblur feature in the camera settings, which can immediately unblur any kinds of shaky or blurred images you have taken through the device’s camera. Additionally, access to Magic Eraser in the settings enable better editing of the images too.
Not just the rear camera settings, Google has done the same for the selfie camera settings too, offering unique features like Guided Frame, to take crisp and clear images and videos even in low-light settings.
Optimal Safety features
Both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are backed with Google Tensor G2 and the Titan M2 security chip that offer superior security without any compromise.
The Titan M2 shields the device against cyberthreats and more sophisticated cyberattacks. Besides this, these two Pixel smartphones will also be backed with VPN by Google One, which is expected to protect the user’s online activity.
Also, the under-display fingerprint sensor in these models is discrete and very responsive. The models will also come with Face ID unlock as an additional lockscreen security feature.
Pricing and Availability
Interested users can now pre-order Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro starting at $599 and $899 respectively. The smartphones will be available with certified retailers in the U.S starting October 13, 2022.
