A hands-on video of the alleged Google Pixel 7 series phones has surfaced online. We’ve got a good look at the supposedly early prototypes of both handsets and an idea of its likely specs.
Popular YouTuber Unbox Therapy posted a video on first hands-on with Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. Both models of Google’s upcoming smartphones would be early prototypes, and all you could see on the phones was the bootloader screen. In the video, the YouTuber also talked about some of the hardware features of the phones and how they are made. For comparison, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were shown alongside the prototypes of the Google Pixel 7 series.
The video suggests that the rear camera module of upcoming Pixel phones will still be in a horizontal position. The Pixel 7 has two rear cameras, while the Pixel 7 Pro has three rear cameras.
The video shows that the Google logo could be placed in the middle of the back of both phones. The YouTuber says the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will have a design that looks like a “visor”. The video also indicates that the Pixel 6 Pro is a bit taller and wider than the Pixel 7 Pro. Compared to the Pixel 6, the Pixel 7 would be much shorter. Google’s upcoming phones might have narrower edges than the Pixel 6 series. It is also pointed out that the Pixel 7 series might be thinner than the Pixel 6 series but the thickness of the rear camera module might be the same.
The Pixel 7 Pro featured in the video has 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of storage space. The Unbox Therapy video shows that the Pixel Pro’s bootloader screen also suggests the codename “cheetah EVT1.1”. On the other hand, you can see that the Pixel 7 has 8GB of Samsung LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of storage space. The code name of the phone is “Panther EVT1.1”. According to the video, the right and left sides of the Pixel 7 Pro could be glossy, while the sides of the Pixel 7 could have a matte finish. According to the YouTuber, both phones can also be charged wirelessly.
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are further shown to have a punch-hole display on the front. The YouTuber said the Pixel 7 Pro might get a bit bigger punch-hole. The YouTuber also measures the weight of the Pixel 7 phones and notes that the Pixel 7 weighs around 10g less than the Pixel 6, and the Pixel 7 Pro weighs around a gram more than the Pixel 6 Pro.
You may recall that the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro were teased during the Google I/O 2022 main event. Both phones are expected to release later this year. They are said to run on Android 13 right out of the box and are powered by the next-gen SoC Tensor.
