Rumors of Google Pixel 7 specs point to marginal upgrades over Pixel 6

Written by admin

Now that we know exactly when the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will be fully detailed and (probably) ready for pre-order, as well as when they could start sending and for how much, all that is yet to be revealed October 6th are… the specifications of Google’s next big thing(s).

While bits and pieces were clearly leaked or (indirectly) confirmed by the search giant itself weeks or even months ago, Yogesh Brar is boldly trying today to put together an (almost) complete spec sheet for the smaller and cheaper of the two upcoming stock Android handsets.

Dude, where are my upgrades?

…is what would-be Pixel 7 owners of the 6.4-inch Pixel 6 may (rightly) wonder once they ditch their “old” device and start using the “new”.

The truth is, you probably won’t notice much of a difference once you make that switch, but luckily for you Google, there are plenty of fish in the sea of ​​smartphone users who haven’t bought the Pixel 6 or 6 Pro who might be tempted to opt for the Pixel 7 or 7 Pro over Apple’s iPhone 14 and 14 this fall. Pro or The flagships of the Samsung Galaxy S22 series.
if the Pixel 7 does indeed cost $599 and up in the US, the following specs can make it a very solid bargain for many people:
  • 6.3-inch OLED display with Full HD+ resolution and 90 Hz refresh rate
  • Google Tensor G2 processor
  • Titan security chip
  • 50MP main rear camera + 12MP ultra wide angle lens
  • Single 11MP selfie shooter
  • 8GB RAM
  • 128/256 GB storage options
  • Android 13 out of the box
  • 4,700mAh battery (approx.)
  • 30W fast charging support
  • Wireless charging
  • Stereo speakers
  • Bluetooth LE Connectivity
Compared to the Pixel 6, this very reasonably priced high-ender is essentially expected with an improved front-facing camera, a slightly larger battery (maybe) and a slightly smaller screen (probably with an unchanged pixel count and refresh rate technology).
By the way, the selfie shooter can be borrowed from the superior Pixel 6 Pro, which is certainly good news. But will it be enough to make the Pixel 7 shine in today’s premium smartphone landscape? As unlikely as it sounds, we think the answer to that question could be yes if and alone if Google knows how to do better controlling bugs than last year… and earlier this year.
It would also certainly help if the second-generation Tensor SoC turned out to be significantly more powerful than its predecessor, which unfortunately doesn’t seem to be the case. based on early benchmarks. Yes, the sheer speed will apparently be improved, but not enough to give Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Apple’s A15 Bionic beasts a run for their money.

What about the Pixel 7 Pro?

Unfortunately, we have nothing new to report on Google’s next-gen jumbo-sized flagship, but based on what we now “know” about the Pixel 7 and some older rumours, we can probably at least make some decent guesses.

An upgrade from an already generous 12GB RAM count is obviously unlikely, as is a battery capacity of over 5,000mAh or so. On the back, the ultra-high-end Pixel 7 Pro will likely use a very similar triple camera system consisting of 50MP main, 48MP telephoto and 12MP ultra-wide-angle sensors as the Pixel 6 Pro, and at least for the time being. there are also no words about major changes for the 11MP selfie snapper.

All in all, we really don’t expect the Pixel 7 Pro to look any different from the 6 Pro in terms of specs, but at just $899 and up with a $200 gift card included from at least one major US retailer at launch it would be worth it. your money can completely destroy the competition, just in time for the Christmas shopping season.
