Google is only days away from the release of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro models, two smartphones that might assure some competition for the latest flagships from Samsung, Apple, or Huawei. The Mountain View-based firm is clearly up to some great and imposing stuff when it comes to the specs that the two upcoming smartphones will be featuring.
Both Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are equipped with a processor built by Google itself – the Google Tensor G2 of 4nm, an octa-core CPU. This processor will supposedly make the AI more friendly with the battery. In other words, the battery won’t drain as fast as in previous Pixel phones. That’s one of the highlights of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro flagships from Google.
Release date: October 13
Google will unveil both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro models next week on Thursday. Thanks to GSMArena and other sources, we already know about everything there is to know regarding the specifications of the two smartphones. There are not many differences between the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro: we can see more RAM, better battery life, or a larger display, all in favor of the Pro version.
The two Google phones are already available for pre-order for those who live in the US. The prices are also pretty affordable: Pixel 7 is priced at $599, while its sibling costs 300 bucks more.
An AI camera
The two new Google Pixel phones carry some interesting AI features for their cameras. The Photo Unblur, Guided Frame, Cinematic Blur, Super Res Zoom, or Macro Focus features are all part of the new technology that Google Pixel 7 phones offer. They’re all proof of what an AI-based camera can do. With the Photo Unblur feature, for instance, you won’t have to worry about taking blurry photos ever again.
The main camera setup of the Pixel 7 phone consists of two lenses. One of them is the wide one reaching 50MP, while the other one is an ultrawide snapper of 12MP. The main camera is also capable of recording video up to 4K quality.
The selfie camera of the Pixel 7 is an ultrawide lens of 10.8MP.
The Google Pixel 7 Pro, on the other hand, is equipped with a triple camera setup on the rear. The main lens is a wide one that reaches 50MP. There’s also a 48MP telephoto lens and a 12MP ultrawide lens. This main camera can also record video up to 4K. The selfie camera is the same as in the case of the Pixel 7.
Both Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are equipped with IP68-rated water resistance, which is great news if you like using your phone on a rainy day. Neither of the two phones offers a memory card slot, but you probably won’t need one considering the storage options: 128GB and 256GB for the Pixel 7, and the same options plus a 512GB version for the Pro variant.
