Google Pixel 7 launch
That’s only six weeks away, and this is why Google is apparently going through the FCC and carrier portfolio approval motions before it shows the Pixel 7 series in its full glory.
The phones’ design and some of the specs have already been teased by Google during its I/O conference in the spring, and the phones indeed sport certain changes compared to their predecessors, especially when looked at from the back.
The aluminum finish will extend to the end of the camera bar and with the Pixel 7 made from a “single block of aluminum,” it could mean that the regular model won’t be able to offer wireless charging. Despite those several refinements, the new Pixel 7 is scheduled to keep the signature horizontal camera island strip and the two-tone body color.
According to other rumors, the Pixel 7 and its larger Pixel 7 Pro sibling will be running on a second generation Google Tensor 2 chipset paired with the new Samsung Exynos 5G modem that is in the Galaxy S22 series’ Exynos 2200 system chip.
As for the all-important Pixel 7 series camera setup, it will again be a triple kit on the 6.7″ Pixel 7 Pro – a 50MP main camera, a 48MP telephoto camera, and an ultrawide lens camera – while the 6.4-inch Pixel 7 would do without the periscope zoom.
