Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro launch date announced and they’re said to be available for pre-order on the same day
Google showed off the back design of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro back in May along with the Pixel 6a at Google I/O. During the reveal of the Pixel 7 series design, Google announced that the phones will be released in the fall of 2022, with no release date for the products. Tipster Jon Prosser has now proposed a launch date for the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, citing “very reputable sources.”
Tipster John Prosser tips that the Pixel 7 series will go on pre-order on October 6 and will be available from October 13 in the US. Prosser also states that Google will release the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro on October 6th. John accurately named the launch dates for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro last year.
Google has taken the unlikely step of revealing the back design of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro themselves. While the specs of the upcoming devices have not been made public, the leaks have given us a clear idea of what to expect. The report states that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are expected to be powered by Samsung’s 2nd generation Tensor SoC. This new SoC will be manufactured on a 4nm process, while the existing Tensor SoC that powers the Pixel 6a, Pixel 6, and Pixel 6 Pro is based on a 5nm process.
An alleged Pixel 7 Pro prototype has been spotted with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, while another has been spotted running Android 13.
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are also said to feature 50-megapixel Samsung GN1 camera sensors. The latest leak hints at the presence of a Hall sensor in the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, which could mean support for flip covers.
