Google will also reveal the Pixel 7 along with the Google Pixel 7 Pro, its top-tier flagship. In the fall of 2022, both of those phones are planned to be on sale. Please feel free to read our preview if you’re interested in learning more about the Pixel 7 Pro. We’ll discuss about the stock Pixel 7 in this article.
In terms of general design, the Pixel 7 series won’t alter all that much from the Pixel 6 series. Since the design is the subject of the first chapter below, that is actually the first thing we will discuss in this preview. Then, in a separate section, we’ll go into greater detail regarding their features and the cameras. The Pixel 7’s cost and availability are the last but not least. Let’s start now, shall we?
In the lead-up to the debut of the forthcoming Android smartphone, this article will be updated frequently with fresh information about the Google Pixel 7 (this is a preview article), including both official teasers and reliable leaks, rumors, and insider claims. The most recent revision was made on August 1st, 2022.
Advertisement A VERY FAMOUS Design The Google Pixel 7 will resemble its predecessor greatly in appearance. The phone’s CAD-based renders were leaked, and Google even displayed the phone’s design during the keynote address for Google I/O 2022. The gadget will have a centered display camera hole and be composed of glass and metal. Like the Pixel 6, it will still have a flat display. The Pixel 7 differs from the Pixel 6 in that the camera visor on the rear is now covered in metal.
All of the physical buttons will still be arranged in the same way, on the right. Given that Google often uses that configuration, the power/lock button will be positioned above the volume rocker buttons. A portion of the phone’s frame will match the color of the camera strip. The black color will also be present where the camera strip extends.
Regarding its glass back now. Some of you might anticipate soft-touch glass to be present on the back based on the renders Google published during Google I/O 2022. That won’t happen, though. That was confirmed by Google. Instead of the matte glass found in the Pixel 3 and 4 series devices, get a glossy rear instead.

There is no 3.5mm headphone jack present, and the main speaker and Type-C connector are located at the bottom of the device. Some people might mistake the mmWave 5G antenna at the top for a pop-up camera. Although the phone is a little bit smaller than its predecessor, we’ll cover that in more detail in the following chapter.
Renders created using CAD (less precise):
THE PROTOTYPE PIXEL 7 Unbelievably, the Pixel 7 prototype was briefly available on both Facebook Marketplace and eBay. You can view some of the pictures we have to look at in the gallery below along with those listings. It was put up for sale much in advance by a Texas resident. Google’s branding isn’t even on the back of this device yet.
GOOGLE TENSOR CHIP ANDAMP; ANDROID 13 2ND GEN At this time, we don’t know much about the Google Pixel 7’s specifications, but some details have emerged. According to rumors, the Pixel 7 will have a display that is between 6.2 and 6.4 inches in size. We are, in the opinion of renowned display analyst Ross Young, gazing at a 6.3-inch panel. That will probably be a fullHD AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 90Hz. Google presumably won’t increase the refresh rate to 120Hz, and it might even have the same panel as the Pixel 6’s. By the way, it will have a flat display with a display camera hole.
The phone will be powered by the second-generation Google Tensor processor, which Google has already revealed. Similar to the first-gen model, Samsung will produce that chip. A new Samsung modem is anticipated to be added on top of it. Although you won’t be able to expand the phone’s storage, Google will probably once again use LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash storage. Some rumors said there would be an under-display camera, however it doesn’t appear that would be the case. The phone will have Android 13 pre-installed, and Bluetooth 5.2 is anticipated to be included right out of the box. The phone should also support WiFi 6 and be able to connect to 5G networks.
Advertisement Let’s hope the charging goes more quickly. The phone’s battery capacity is still a secret, but let’s hope Google will this time around enable speedier charging. The Pixel 6 is capable of 21W charging, although around 50%, the rate of charge decreases noticeably, taking about 2 hours to fully charge the smartphone. The phone will also allow wireless charging. The Google Pixel 7 is reportedly 155.6 x 73.1 x 8.7mm in size (11.44mm with the camera bump).
Google won’t continue to use the same camera sensors. Google is anticipated to maintain a system that is similar to, but not identical to, the Pixel 6 camera setup. The Pixel 7 has two cameras on the back, as can be seen in the CAD renderings up top. The Pixel 6 featured the same number of megapixels. The 50-megapixel ISOCELL GN1 camera from the phone’s predecessor is likely to be used, as was mentioned in a tip. We all are aware that Google doesn’t frequently switch out camera sensors. And yet, each generation of cameras gets improved performance thanks to its software. This time, the business will do just that, but the camera software will be improved.
There will be two cameras mounted on the back. There will probably be an ultrawide camera as the backup camera on the rear. The camera itself will not change. However, this cannot be true of the selfie camera. It is anticipated that Google will switch to the Samsung ISOCELL 3J1 sensor. With 1.22um pixels, that is an 11-megapixel camera sensor. The Pro model is anticipated to have the same camera.
Advertisement On October 6, THE PIXEL 7 IS PLANNED TO ARRIVE. The availability, what about it? Well, a reliable source has provided a wealth of information in that area. That information indicates that the Pixel 7 series will go official on October 6. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are included in this. Additionally, it was mentioned that pre-orders will begin that day and that the phones would go on sale on October 13.
AVOIDING A CHANGED PRICE TAG, PLEASE Pricing for the Google Pixel 6s begins at $599. Google received acclaim for this price, so let’s hope the replacement will be similarly inexpensive. It would be great if Google could maintain this price point. If not, let’s just hope that the price won’t go up too much since this is, to put it mildly, really competitive.
