Surprise at Google I/O. Google officially unveiled the design of its new smartphone generation much earlier than expected and announced the release date. The Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro differ visually in nuances from the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro (our review) and launch in the fall.
Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro: details and information
At the end of the Google I/O keynote, the manufacturer dropped the bombshell and officially unveiled its new Google Pixel 7 and Pro smartphones. Basically, the design is based on the predecessor series and yet there are a few serious differences.
Above all, the offset camera bar has been redesigned and comes in an aluminum look, which also adorns the sides of both smartphones. The aluminum is supposed to be made of 100 percent recycled materials, while the rest of the back is once again made of glass.
A new feature is the large, oval camera window on the left side of the bar, which houses a dual-camera setup on the Pixel 7, but again a triple-camera setup on the Pixel 7 Pro. However, Google did not reveal any more information.
It can be assumed that the developer will reveal more details during its own keynote in the fall. Among other things, it will be exciting to see how the Tensor chip has been improved, what has been done to the cameras and how Google wants to get the problems of the predecessors under control.
Prices and availability
The Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are expected to be released in the fall of 2022, and apparently in rather plain colors by Google standards, such as black, white, gray, and a light greenish-yellow hue. Details about the prices have not been mentioned yet.
