Google teased the launch of the Pixel 7 series at I/O 2022. The company teased the rear panel design of the upcoming Pixel smartphones and confirmed some details, such as a new Tensor chip. The Google Pixel 7 Pro will be the more premium offering of the two and come with a larger display, a bigger battery and a triple-camera setup. The company will announce the official pricing and availability details of the Pixel phones later this year. While we wait for the launch date announcement, a video of the Google Pixel 7 Pro unboxing has surfaced online.
The unboxing video has gone live even before Google confirmed the Pixel 7 Pro’s specifications and features. As seen in the video uploaded on Facebook, the Pixel 7 Pro’s design matches the official design renders teased by Google. It has an aluminium camera strip on the back with a pill-shaped cutout and a tiny circular cutout for the sensors. There is also an LED flash at the right corner of the horizontal camera bar. Upon booting the device, the screen shows the Google Pixel’s official animation sequence. This suggests that the Google phone is indeed an official unit and not some mockup or a prototype. We can also see the charging cable and the documentation packed inside the Pixel 7 Pro’s retail box.
The video does not reveal the specifications of the upcoming Google flagship smartphone. However, we already know some of the leaked details, courtesy of the rumour mill’s regular churn.
Google Pixel 7 Pro Specifications
The top-of-the-line Pixel 7 Pro smartphone will sport a 6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It will come with a curved display and a hole-punch cutout at the top centre.
On the back, there will be a triple-camera setup. The Pixel 7 series is said to include a 50MP main camera and a 12MP ultrawide camera. Google is likely to provide a 48MP telephoto camera sensor in the Pro model with 2x optical zoom.
The Pixel 7 series will also include a new Tensor second-generation chip inside. It will come with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The Pro model could pack a 5000 mAh battery and offer 33W fast charging support. Lastly, the new Pixel phones will run Android 13 out of the box.
