Google Pixel 7 series launch was teased at the Google I/O 2022. The company confirmed that the launch of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will take place during fall. At I/O 2022, Google dropped a teaser of the Pixel 7 series, giving us a glimpse of the rear panel. We are still a few months away from the official launch but it looks like the Pixel 7 series cannot stop from boarding the leak train.
A leaked prototype of the Pixel 7 Pro has surfaced online. A Twitter user revealed that his friend ordered the currently available Pixel 6 Pro on Facebook Marketplace. After waiting for nearly two months, the user got their hands on the device, only to find out that it is the unreleased Pixel 7 Pro.
The images reveal that the Pixel 7 Pro is wrapped in a prototype case that hides most of the design elements, but the user did post another image of the phone without the cover showcasing the full rear panel. The images also reveal the codename of the device (cheetah) and Android 13 (Tiramisu).
The friend who got the device suspects that the seller could be an OEM manufacturer who is supplying the Pixel 7 series. While the story of the seller accidentally shipping a prototype of the unreleased Pixel 7 Pro seems too good to be true, one cannot ignore the fact that Google is finding it tough to stop the Pixel 7 leaks. It did enough by sending a remote wipe command and clearing the Android 13 update off the phone, which is now stuck in a bootloader.
Google Pixel 7 Pro Specifications
Most of the specifications of the Pro variant have leaked online. Google confirmed that the 7 Pro will have a triple-camera setup on the back. It is rumoured to feature a 50MP primary camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera and a 48MP telephoto camera.
The device will come with a new Tensor chip under the hood. Details about the new chip will be announced at the Pixel 7 launch event in Fall. The device is expected to pack up to 12GB of RAM along with 256GB of internal storage.
There will be a 6.7-inch Full HD+ display with support for a 120Hz refresh rate display. The OLED screen will have a hole-punch cutout at the top centre for the front camera. Pixel 7 series will run Android 13 out of the box.
