To our delight, Google is sticking with its Pixel 7 formula. This new smartphone looks almost identical to its predecessor, but its cameras are more powerful, accessible, and usable than ever. Plus, the Pixel 7 Pro has finally embraced the face unlock feature!
Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro pre-orders open today. Both devices ship on October 13th, and they’re keeping the Pixel 6’s great pricing.
NB: The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones made their debut at the Made By Google 2022 event. They were accompanied by the Pixel Watch and Pixel Tablet.
Brighter and brighter pixel set of phones
The new Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro build on the success of Google’s previous smartphone, the Pixel 6. They arrive without skyrocketing in price, and offer the same competitive value with great new improvements, particularly in terms of camera quality, battery life and artificial intelligence. Enabled features.
Here’s the Pixel 7 pricing:
- Pixel 7 (6.3 inches): $600
- Pixel 7 Pro (6.7 inches): $900
Design-wise, the Pixel 7 lineup reuses “Robocop“The camera mask we got last year. On the standard Pixel 7, this visor has a satin finish, while it’s shinier and shinier on the Pixel 7 Pro.
The Pixel 7 now uses a 6.3-inch screen — which is slightly smaller than the Pixel 6’s, but only because the bezels are narrower. Unfortunately, the Pixel 7 still uses a 90Hz screen. You need to upgrade to the Pixel 7 Pro if you want a 6.7-inch 120Hz screen.
Of course, the cameras get the biggest upgrade here. Low-light selfies look better on the Pixel 7, the zoom settings are more efficient and accurate, and the Pixel 7 introduces a new feature to fix blurry photos. Additionally, the Pixel 7 Pro has finally gained the face unlock feature.
Battery life is also a noticeable improvement. Google says that both devices will last more than 24 hours on a charge (or up to 72 hours with the Extreme Battery Saver). Interestingly, both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro support 30W wired charging. (At least, that’s what Google says. Remember that Google You lied about the Pixel 6’s charging speed.)
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro each get five years of security updates and three years of major OS updates.
With the new Pixel 7 lineup comes an upgraded chipset, the Tensor G2. According to Google, machine learning algorithms run 60% faster and 20% more efficient on these new chips. This means faster display of photos and videos, faster Live Translate, and improved battery life.
For the most part, the Pixel 7 offers the same AI and machine learning features as its predecessor. But there are some new additions, including transcribing voice messages. If someone sends you a voice message while you are out in public, you don’t need to play it out loud. Just copy it!
And for journalists, the Pixel 7’s Recorder app is adding new headphone labels to texts. If you interview someone on your Pixel 7 and have access to AutoText, the different speakers will be identified by labels (such as “loudspeaker 1”).
The Tensor G2 will also enable ‘Clear Calling’ later this year. Pixel phones do indeed clean up your phone calls, but the Clear Calling feature specifically targets the person you’re calling. It improves their sound quality and removes background noise that their phones pick up.
Unfortunately, we still do not have the detailed specifications for these chipsets. We suppose it can be compared to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, but the Google presentation focused more on AI performance than raw power.
As always, camera quality is the focus of Google’s Pixel range. The Pixel 7 series takes camera quality to a new level, adding a long list of improvements and new features.
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro both use a 10.8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide front camera, which improves low-light performance when taking selfies or making video calls. Additionally, both phones get a 2X Pro Res Zoom on their main camera, and each Pixel 7 camera offers improved sharpness and stability, especially when zooming in on distant subjects.
Video quality is getting a huge boost on both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. New 10-bit HDR gives you improved color and contrast, while Cinema Mode lets you capture HD video with a shallow depth of field — in other words, you can enable Portrait-style background blur for videos.
The Pixel 7 Pro gets an exclusive camera upgrade — a macro mode. By taking advantage of the ultra-wide camera, Google can guarantee highly detailed shots of subjects up to 3cm. You can take close-up pictures of raindrops, hair follicles on the skin, or other objects that are usually outside the cockpit of a smartphone camera.
Google has also added Face Unlock to the Pixel 7 Pro. We haven’t seen a Pixel phone with face unlock in years, so this is a very noticeable upgrade. Let’s hope the feature actually works.
And of course, the Tensor G2 enhances all of Google’s AI-enabled camera features. Doubles the speed of Night Sight, reducing motion blur in night photography. The Real Tone feature that Google introduced last year now works better in low-light environments, ensuring that people with darker skin are accurately represented in all images.
Google has also introduced a new feature called Guided Frame, which helps users who are visually impaired or blind to take selfies. Essentially, the audio tells you which direction your camera should move and tells you when you are properly framed.
But what about your old photos? Well, Google is introducing a Pixel 7 exclusive feature called Photo Unblur. Removes motion blur and smudges from any photo, even photos you’ve taken on other phones. With Magic Eraser and other editing tools, Pixel 7 lets you enhance all your favorite memories. It’s a serious selling point, if you ask me.
You can pre-order the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro for $600 and $900, respectively. Both phones start with 128GB of storage, although you can upgrade to 256GB. If you want more storage, you’re forced to buy the Pixel 7 Pro, which has 512GB in its more expensive configuration.
Pixel 7 pre-orders on October 13th. The phone will also hit store shelves that day. If you’re on the fence, I’d suggest waiting for the reviews to come in – we’ll have a review published in a few weeks.
Note that carriers will offer significant discounts for this phone. Google claims that you can get the Pixel 7 Pro for free with an eligible exchange.
