We all know that Google plans to finally fully detail the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro on October 6, when the two new Android high-enders will probably also be reserved for pre-order, but while a very reputable source told us exactly what we could expect in terms of selling prices, also less than a week ago, we couldn’t be sure that those rumored numbers were legit.
A $599 (almost) flagship with “next-gen” processing power
This matches up perfectly with what was specifically tipped for Target last week…except for the $100 gift card rumor, which may or may not be valid for Amazon as well.
That seems quite legitimate to us.
Since this was an early offer that was not yet allowed to be seen by potential buyers, it is entirely possible that such an introductory offer was not uploaded to Amazon’s system at the time of the public misstep. Alternatively, the deal (if true) may only be visible in a more detailed future listing.
When will the Pixel 7 be released?
According to the same carelessly published Amazon product list, October 13 is the big day, surpassing some of the previous predictions of some otherwise reliable leakers and tipsters by nearly a week.
An October 13 release (for both the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, presumably) would come exactly a week after the formal announcement next Thursday and pre-order is rumored to start, which seems like an excellent turnaround for Google just further proves that the company is increasingly serious about challenging the supremacy of the smartphone market of Apple and Samsung (US)… eventually.
Incidentally, Amazon was also apparently kind enough to publish something that Google has so far kept very carefully hidden. That high-resolution image at the top of our article is one of the first (semi-)official images to show the front of the 6.3-inch Pixel 7 in addition to the back.
