We have great news to share on the google pixel 7 and it may be coming sooner than we expected today we have more spec and design confirmation on the google pixel 7 along with news that it’s coming sooner than we anticipated before we get started if you’re a fan of google let me know in the comments who out there is waiting for the new pixel 7.
So the first story of the day it comes from reliable display analyst ross young he’s tweeted to say that the pixel 7 is actually going to be shrinking in display size from 6.4 inches to 6.3 he also tells us that the pixel 7 pro is not going to be changing size and it’s going to remain at a 6.7 inch display now this isn’t necessarily a bad thing as a reduction of one inch isn’t really too much and there are many out there who do prefer smaller phones so a bigger difference in screen size between the pro and the non-pro models could be a better choice.
Also when it comes to the pixel 7 pro just because the display size is the same it doesn’t mean it’s going to be the same display as last time either we expect improvements in the display and this is most likely going to be in peak brightness and the color accuracy and the predecessor already had an incredible display so there isn’t too much to worry about here a couple of weeks ago we had renders based from league cad files thanks to steve at on leaks and these also agree with the information coming.
From ross young given the fact that both steve and ross have proved their reliability time and time again we can be pretty sure that this is accurate now in ross’s tweet he also states that panel shipments for the device are going to be starting a month earlier this year they’re actually going to start in may with panel shipments coming a month earlier then it’s likely that launch is also going to be earlier meaning we can expect to see it in september.
Instead of the usual october we’ve also got many rumors of an in-display selfie camera on the pixel 7 pro but to be honest these are nothing more than rumors they’re coming from unreliable sources with no evidence and not only does it just seem incredibly unlikely that google would do this but it goes against the cad that we’ve already seen in-display selfie cameras are just one of those rumors that they seem to crop up for every single smartphone and then nine times out of ten it just doesn’t happen because the technology.
Is not good enough when it comes to the pixel 7 series though both are taking a similar design to their predecessor and they’re going to focus on refinements instead of a redesign we of course get improved hardware across the board and google have shown us over previous generations that they can continue to deliver a great phone without changing too much about it now the focus is normally on a good performing phone with photo and video being one of the top priorities and that’s very unlikely to change now for those of you excited for the google pixel 7
Though we’re now going to run through the full specs design and the expected pricing to help you guys decide if it is worth the wait for my regular now and we’ll get right into it so first up we’ve got the google pixel 7. it’s expected to come with a 6.3 inch amoled display it’s going to be a full hd plus resolution of 1080 by 2400 and it’s going to have a 90 hertz refresh rate it will be a flat display with hdr 10 plus and protected by gorilla glass victors plus on the front we get a punch hole camera in the top center of the display this is going to be an 8 megapixel wide angle camera on the rear it’s a dual camera setup.
And while the exact cameras are still unknown it’s likely going to be a 50 megapixel wide angle and a 12 megapixel ultrawide camera it’s all going to be powered by google’s new in-house chipset the google tensor2 and it’s likely going to come with eight gigabytes of ram and a choice of 128 256 or 512 storage when it comes to battery capacity we’re expecting a slight reduction due to the change in the size so we’re predicting a 4 600 milliamp hour battery but hopefully we will see some improvements in fast charging.
It’s going to be coming with wi-fi 6e bluetooth 5 and ultra wideband support and the phone is of course going to ship with the new android 13. now no pricing information has been leaked yet but it’s expected that it won’t be changing meaning that the pixel 7 is going to start from around 600 next up we’ve got the pixel 7 pro with the pixel 7 pro we get a 6.7 inch curved amoled display it’s a 120 hertz display with hdr 10 plus and a quad hd plus resolution of 1440 by 3120 the front display is going to be protected by gorilla glass victors plus on the front we’re also expecting a 12 megapixel wide angle camera.
In the form of a punch hole camera in the top center of the display and then on the rear we’ve got another triple camera setup the rear cameras are in a slightly different module to last here but we expect a 50 megapixel wide angle a 12 megapixel ultra wide and a 48 megapixel telephoto its predecessor came with four times optical zoom we’re hoping to see this improved to either five times or ten times zoom it’s of course going to be powered by google’s new tensor2 chipset and it’s going to come with a choice of 128 256 or 512 storage and this will be with 12 gigs of ram it’s coming with a 5 000 milliamp hour battery.
And again we hope to see improvements on fast charging but it will at least be 30 watts it’s coming with bluetooth 5 wi-fi 6e and ultra wideband support and it will of course be shipping with android 13. launch price again is expected to remain the same as before meaning the pixel 7 pro should be starting from around 900 now overall the pixel 7 and the pixel 7 pro are looking like incredible smartphones they’re keeping a similar design that proved very popular last year and they’re focusing on refinements rather than radical changes of course the phone’s going to be launching in september or october this year so as we approach the launch more and more specs are going to be confirmed and i’ll share them.
