During today’s Google I / O event, the company gave us a quick teaser of what we can expect from its next revolutionary smartphone: the Pixel 7.
Although the focus was mainly on Pixel’s products coming now – Pixel 6a, Pixel Watch and Pixel Buds Pro – Google also wants to make sure that it will whet our appetite for the next big entry in its range of smartphones.
Although it started later this year, we had already heard enough to know that we do not expect significant changes in the design, so today’s teaser did not include any real surprises. The Pixel 7 that Google has shown looks almost indistinguishable from the Pixel 6, which suggests that Google has focused on this design as the look of its smartphones.
However, this does not mean that Google does not improve the design in some exciting ways. At today’s event, he said that the rear of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will switch to 100% recycled aluminum throughout the rear body, including the camera strip. The polished and aluminum glass design promises to give an even more classy look to Google’s flagship smartphone.
As expected, Pixel 7 will be powered by Google’s next-generation Tensor chip, the second version of Google’s own silicon, which is based on the original Tensor introduced with Pixel 6. Although it’s called “Tensor 2”, Google still has not announced his name. The company has proposed that the Pixel 7 Pro will set a new standard for photography, performance and design thanks to a powerful new chip that will power heavier AI processing for photography and video.
There were also some indications that the Google Pixel 7 may be using a selfie camera under the display for the first time, but the leaked renderings we saw cast some doubt on that. Google didn’t mention this when it annoyed the new Pixel 7 at today’s event and apparently avoided showing us any images on the front of the Pixel 7.
The new Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will ship with Android 13. Google has confirmed that it will arrive this fall, but has not yet shared any prices or other details about it, so we’ll have to wait and see what else is available up your sleeve for your next big edition smartphone.
