Google Pixel 7: a design that is a little refined

Google has released a short video of its future – and long-awaited – smartphone, the Pixel 7, which we can already admire from every angle. The Pixel 7 is very similar to its predecessor – whose design had been a radical change – but adds a few minor changes, such as a metallic glass strip at the level of the photo modules – its thickness does not seem to have decreased – in order to show them better forth. In the end, the Pixel 7 and Pro 7 only seem to differ in size and number of rear cameras – 2 on the Pixel 7 versus 3 for the Pixel 7 Pro.

Thus, we already know that the Pixel 7 will benefit from a 6.3 inch Oled screen – against 6.4 inches for the Pixel 6 – with a Full HD + definition and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. As for the Pixel 7 Pro, it will feature a 6.7-inch QHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. They will be equipped with a 50-megapixel Samsung Isocell GN1 main photo module – already found on the Pixel 6 – as well as an ultra-wide-angle Sony IMX381 of 12 megapixels and a front sensor of 10.8 – the previous model was 8 megapixels.
