According to the report, the Google Pixel 7 series, which consists of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, has been spotted in the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) database. The company is believed to be preparing to launch the Pixel 7 series in the US on October 6th. Ahead of the launch, two phones that have been spotted on the FCC database are listed with mmWave 5G connectivity, while the other two are said to support sub-6GHz 5G. Given that mmWave connectivity is not popular worldwide, two of the phones listed may be US models.
According to report from GSMArena, four Google smartphones – GP4BC, HLG6S, GE2AEas well as GQML3 – surfaced in the FCC database. These are believed to be variants of the Pixel 7 series. All of these phones are said to support Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth, NFC, and wireless charging.
The GP4BC and GVU6C models are listed to support sub-6GHz 5G connectivity, while the GE2AE and GQML3 variants will support mmWave 5G connectivity. The last two models are expected to be for the US, as mmWave technology has not been widely adopted outside of the country. mmWave technology provides access to frequency bands above 24 GHz.
Notably, the GP4BC and GE2AE models also support ultra-wideband (UWB) connectivity. Recall that the Pixel 6 Pro also included UWB, while the regular version did not have this technology. Therefore, these two models could be variants of the Pixel 7 Pro.
Google will reportedly launch the Pixel 7 series in the US on October 6th. Pre-orders are expected to open on the same day, and the smartphones may be available for purchase starting October 13th. Previous reports suggest this lineup could debut with Samsung’s 2nd Gen Tensor SoC. The phones can also get a selfie camera with 4K video support.
