Okay, I’m excited about the new Pixel phones.
Google’s Pixel phones have always had a polarizing look, with their mix of a variety of colors and aggressive camera bumps. Google is sticking to the same overall formula for its next generation of Pixel phones, due out this fall, but it will be tweaking some details with an eye toward making those devices more attractive.
During the company’s I/O keynote, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said this year would be
a very important year for our smartphone program
Google has announced the Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro with its new Tensor chipset. Most of the specifications it’s touting are already known, thanks to various leaks. They also confirmed, as expected, that these phones will ship with the Android 13 update.
The Pixel 7 Pro will have a triple rear camera system, like its predecessor, and the standard Pixel 7 appears to have two rear cameras, like last year’s model. That’s nothing new. They both stick with the wide/ultrawide/telephoto configuration that fans are used to, judging by renders.
The new Pixel 7 series is similar to its predecessor in many ways, including the design. It features the same aluminum and glass finishing. The only notable improvement is in the rear camera bar. The entire camera bar is now covered in aluminum instead of being made mainly of glass. This now gives it an even more unique look and feel.
Release Date & Price:
Each year, Google has released its Pixel phones in October. Since the Pixel 6a is set to release in July, it seems that the company will continue this trend for at least one more year. Google has said that we can expect the Pixel 7 series release date in the fall, so we’d anticipate an October launch.
As for how much they will cost, that’s just speculation. The Pixel 6 debuted at $599 and the Pixel 6 Pro at $899, but Google may want to undercut other smartphone manufacturers with these new devices. It wouldn’t be surprising for the Pixel 7 to debut at or slightly above their predecessors, ranging between $600 to $1000.
It is confirmed that the Pixel 6a will also have a price of $449, which may indicate that Google will keep prices similar for these new devices.
We’ll have to wait for more leaks to see what else the phones have to offer.
As far as this first look goes, our biggest question is:
Will there be an improvement in other areas like storage [RAM & internal storage], display, camera quality, battery, and charging speed?
