The Pixel 6 lineup is the latest Pixel smartphone from Google. Released in October 2021, these devices came with tons of amazing features – a good example is the introduction of Google’s tensor chips. As with other Pixel smartphones, the upcoming Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will probably launch no earlier than October. But what should we expect when these smartphones finally come out in the coming months?

The rest of this article will share with you everything we know so far about the upcoming Google Pixel 7.

When is the release date?

For now, there’s no official statement yet regarding when the upcoming Google Pixel 7 will come out. However, based on previous releases, it’s most likely that the smartphones will be available in the Q4 of 2022.

The Google Pixel 6 lineup came out on October 28, 2021. As for the Pixel 5 smartphones, they launched on October 15, 2020. Google released the Pixel 4 series on October 24, 2019, while the Pixel 3 lineup came out on October 9, 2018. Looking at these previous release dates, you can safely assume that the upcoming Google Pixel 7 lineup will be available in October.

But here’s a burning question; is it possible to have the Google Pixel 7 launch in September? To answer the question, I’ll say the possibility is pretty slim.

In a recent report, the popular analyst Ross Young mentioned that panel shipments for the upcoming Google Pixel 7 lineup would start one month earlier this year (by May). If at all this information is anything to go by, then it’s possible to have the upcoming Pixel lineup in September. Again, the possibility is slim, but it’s something that could happen.

Google Pixel 7 series: hardware

Last year’s Google Pixel 6 came with many changes compared to its predecessors. For instance, the lineup was the first to feature the controversial under-display fingerprint sensor. The camera bar on the rear end of the Google Pixel 6 series is another improvement with these smartphones.

Unfortunately, the latest leaks and renders regarding the Pixel 7 lineup reveal Google has no plan to change the appearance of these upcoming smartphones radically. Instead, the devices (Pixel 7 and 7 Pro) will come with almost the same buildup as the Pixel 6 series.

According to analyst Ross Young, the upcoming smartphones will come in two different sizes. The Pixel 7 will be available in 6.3 inches instead of the usual 6.4 inches. As for the Pixel 7 Pro model, it’ll retain the size of its predecessor, which is 6.7 inches.

Recently, OnLeaks partnered with SmartPrix to provide us with some high-res full-color illustrations of what the upcoming Pixel 7 Pro model could look like. The renders, which you can check below, reveal that the Pro version of the upcoming Pixel 7 series will sport a 6.7 to 6.8-inch curved display. In addition, the device will feature a single punch-hole selfie camera and a high refresh OLED panel, which could go head-to-head with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Moreover, the Pixel 7 lineup will launch with a camera bar, which will blend directly into the smartphone’s frame. The smartphone base will come with a USB-C charging port and dual stereo speakers. The left side of the device has a SIM card tray, while the right side features a power button and volume buttons.

Pixel 7 Pro: Chip

The latest leaks suggest that the upcoming Google Pixel 7 could come powered by Exynos 5300 modem and a custom-made Tensor GS201 chipset, which is internally called “Cloudripper.”

Pixel 7 series: Software

Like the hardware features of the next Pixel lineup, we’ve also heard a lot about the software parts. The Google Pixel 7 series will most likely run Android 13 out of the box according to reports. For now, we’re still very early into the public previews for AndAs such, woid 13, but we’re hopeful the next-gen OS will be available before the release of the Pixel 7 lineup.

According to analyst Ross Young, the Pro model of the upcoming Pixel lineup will support a 120Hz display refresh rate with LTPO technology. We can suggest that the non-Pro model will come with a 90Hz refresh rate and non-LTPO.

Google Pixel 7 price

For now, the exact prices of the upcoming smartphones are still unknown as there’s no official statement yet regarding it. However, we believe ‌their prices will most likely fall in line with the prices of their predecessors.

Last year, the standard Pixel 6 sold at a starting price of $599 / £599. As for the Pro model, it was available at a starting price of $899 / £849 / AU$1,299. You should expect roughly the same price for the next Pixel lineup.
