Expected design and specifications
Now, back to the recent “Pixel 7 leaks”. While the company’s popular “Made by Google” launch event is just around the corner, that clearly hasn’t stopped many tech enthusiasts from posting several leaks about the soon-to-be-released Pixel 7 smartphones from Google.
Starting with the general design of the Pixel 7, we can see from one of Google’s official images of their Pixel 7 smartphone (which originated from Amazon’s unsolicited listing – discussed in more detail later) that both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro can be expected to be It has the same design that was originally created by Pixel 6 Smartphone Series.
From this image, consumers can easily notice that, just like the Pixel 6 series, the Pixel 7 is expected to have a perfectly center-cut selfie camera built into the top side of the phone’s display, which then comes with a slightly larger bezel at the bottom. .
However, compared to the Pixel 6 series, Google still seems to be able to trim the bezels of its new Pixel 7 series of smartphones, which eventually allows its new Pixel 7 and 7 Pro smartphones to get a more modern look. their ancestors.
Specifically for the Pixel 7 Pro, we can see the recently leaked images (Courtesy of Ishan Agarwal and 91mobile) that the difference in the bezel size of the phone when compared to its predecessor may not be that obvious, but that’s simply because the Pixel 6 Pro and Pixel 7 Pro both come with curved screens, which naturally reduces the size of each phone’s edges on both. sides of their displays.
While the rendering from this leaked image suggests that the bottom bezel on the Pixel 7 Pro will be slightly smaller than the one on the Pixel 6 Pro, it’s somewhat difficult to tell from the display.
In terms of colors, the leaked new Pixel 7 images also show that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro’s frame colors will primarily come in a minimalist and ultra-modern black and white (or beige) design.
More specifically, the colors of the frame and the back panel will be fundamentally contrasting with each other. This means that choosing a Pixel 7 (or 7 Pro) smartphone with a black back panel will have its bezel in white, while choosing one with a white or beige back panel will have the bezel. Black/dark colour.
This is a slight improvement over Google’s color options for the next generation of Pixel smartphones (ie their Pixel 7 line), compared to Pixel 6 Smartphone models (which mostly come with black frames), only the Pixel 6 Pro offered bezels in these colors we see in these The leaked images of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
Regarding the camera specifications of each smartphone, there is not much to say yet. From what we can see from the official Google image of the rear of the Pixel 7, their Pixel 7 smartphone will come with a high-end dual camera setup and flash, while their Pixel 7 Pro will integrate a slightly more powerful triple camera. Setup and flash.
As for the remaining specifications offered by the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, thanks to more leaks online, we already know that both smartphones from Google’s new Pixel 7 lineup will come with New Tensor G2 SoC (System on a Chip)which Samsung will build on its own 4nm node.
The new Tensor G2 SoC is supposed to be very similar to the original Tensor GS101 chip (i.e. the first generation), as it will integrate two large (x2) cores of the Arm Cortex-X1 CPU, one medium (x2) Cortex-A76 CPU core, and four (x2) x4) Cortex-A55 CPU micro cores, As announced September 20 on SamMobilewhich the article revealed that this information was actually confirmed Tweet posted by Kuba Wojciechowski Android Developer.
Another major difference is the all-new Mali-G710 GPU, which according to recent statistics, will provide both Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro around 20% better performance, 20% better power efficiency, and also around 35% improvement in learning. Automated, as leaks also suggest that the all-new Mali-G710 GPU may also integrate some interesting machine learning capabilities, which, in your mind, Google’s Pixel 6 chip doesn’t offer.
Since we are only a few days away from the company’s launch event at the end of 2022 “Made by Google”, we will learn more about this very soon.
According to Google, which has dubbed the new Tensor G2 SoC “Jaineiro” (in terms of potentially better AI experiences), the new Tensor G2 SoC from the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will also come with Samsung’s new S5300 5G modem for Better connection.
As for the storage offered by both the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, leaked data suggests that both smartphones from Google’s new Pixel 7 range will have at least 128GB of storage, which is really good by today’s standards.
As expected, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will also feature 5G connectivity.
Last but not least, The latest official announcement from Google The fondling of the “Made by Google” launch event also suggests that both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones will run very smoothly on Android 13, so fans can safely expect that too.
Pricing and availability
Finally, there are also the price tags for the soon-to-be-launched Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones from Google.
leak pictures from A recent tweet by M Brandon Lee (@thisistechtoday) Whoever was quick enough to take a screenshot from Amazon listening to the standard Pixel 7 model, which was inadvertently posted by a Google employee and then immediately removed shortly after, indicates that the pricing values for both new Google smartphones From their smartphones, the Pixel 7 lineup can be set to the same (or very similar) values as their predecessors in 2021 (ie the Pixel 6 lineup).
According to the leaked image of the aforementioned Amazon listing, the Pixel 7 will cost $599, while the Pixel 7 Pro price is expected to be set at $899, both price tags being the same respectively as the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro starting prices.
While this image leak does not include any other pricing in the region, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro smartphones currently cost £599 and £849 in the UK, while in Australia they go for exactly AU$999 and AU$1299, It is what consumers value. You can expect those countries (UK and Australia) in terms of price tags respectively for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
Again, know that Google’s upcoming Pixel and Nest devices will all release and Available for purchase directly on Google PlayStarting October 6, 2022.
Possible problems with current price tags
In general, it appears that Google plans to keep the same prices for its new Pixel 7 smartphones as the price tags it sold from the previous generation of Pixel 6 phones.
While this decision by Google may not make sense for most consumers, it is important to be aware of the fact that due to multiple factors that have negatively impacted the global economy – including the COVID-19 pandemic, global climate change, as well as the UKR-RUS war , along with falling coins and living woes – having the same price tags for Google’s new Pixel 7 phones doesn’t necessarily mean the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will cost the same amount of money as their predecessors.
Sure, at first glance, having the same $599 and $899 price tags might seem to be exactly the same value in 2022 as they were in 2021. However, due to all of these factors mentioned above, these price tags are currently very different amounts. of money, which is actually quite a bit of money most families probably won’t want to spend this year as a direct result of all of the factors mentioned.
as such Tech Radar’s latest post on the subject He cleverly points out that these high and escalating prices of newly released tech products suggest that tech companies like Google, as well as Samsung, and even Apple all seem a far cry from buyers, not understanding the economic hardships worrying many.
