Google Pixel 7, 7 Pro
Google shared a tweet on Friday revealing that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be available to pre-order in India via Flipkart starting from October 6 at 9:30pm. However, the pricing and first sale date are still under wraps.
The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will sport a centrally-aligned punch-hole cut-out and an in-display fingerprint reader. The devices will get a full-width metal visor for the rear camera module. The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will be backed by Tensor G2 SoC. They will boot Android 13.
The Pixel 7 could bear a 6.3-inch Full-HD+ (1080×2400 pixels) AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, while the Pro model may boast a 120Hz, 6.7-inch QHD+ (1440×3120 pixels) LTPO AMOLED screen. The 7 and 7 Pro are tipped to pack 4,700mAh and 5,000mAh batteries, respectively, with 30W fast charging.
The Pixel 7 may sport a 50MP main shooter with OIS and a 12MP ultra-wide sensor. The Pro model will likely offer a similar setup but with an additional 48MP telephoto snapper. On the front, both may get an 11MP selfie camera.
The former could get 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB configurations. The Pro model may be offered in 12GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB variants. Connectivity options should include Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3.
There have been rumours suggesting that Google might launch the Pixel 7 series at the same price as the launch price of the Pixel 6 lineup. A leaked Amazon listing has solidified these rumours as it featured a standard Pixel 7 model priced at $599 (roughly Rs. 50,000). If these rumours are true, then the Pixel 7 Pro might arrive with an $899 (roughly Rs. 75,000) price tag.
