PIXEL 7. Google has just unveiled its two new phones for the coming year. Discover all the new features of Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro with their prices and release date.
[Mis à jour le 6 octobre 2022 à 16h50] The Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro have just been announced. These two new smartphones will therefore be the spearheads of the Google company in the coming year. The company is once again relying heavily on the algorithm part thanks to a new chip called the Google Tensor G2. The latter should offer the Google Pixel 7 better autonomy than the previous generation and excellent results in terms of photography.
The conference around Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro enabled the company to communicate all the news and information regarding these new smartphones. Discover all the details of the Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, their price in Europe and their announced release date.
What are the specifications of the Google Pixel 7?
Google had already communicated something about its next phone, the Google Pixel 7. However, the manufacturer held a special conference, mainly focused on this new device. After excellent feedback on last year’s Pixel 6, Google intends to continue this momentum by offering two new smartphones: the Google Pixel 7 and the Google Pixel 7 Pro.
Google Pixel 7 is therefore still equipped with an FHD+ screen, but 6.3 inches, which is a bit smaller than its predecessor (Pixel 6 had a 6.4 inch panel)! However, its refresh rate is still limited to 90 Hz. The 120 Hz mode is reserved for the Google Pixel 7 Pro.
Google is again focusing on photography for its new Google Pixel 7. The manufacturer has already gained a solid reputation in the field for several years by relying on an excellent image processing algorithm. The Google Pixel 7 is therefore equipped with three photo modules, as was the case for the previous generation of Pixel phones:
- 50 MP main sensor.
- 12 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor.
- 10.8 MP selfie camera.
On the photography side, the features of the Google Pixel 7 also emphasize inclusivity with the skin colors of racialized people much better represented. The smartphone also adds an assistant mode for visually impaired or blind people who want to take selfies by telling them how to frame and when the photo was taken.
The design of the Google Pixel 7 should not shock the brand’s regulars. The screen of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro is thus taken from the old generation, while the photo module evolves a bit to make the sensors appear in the form of a small pill on the back of the device.
The other big news that was expected for the Google Pixel 7 is in its chip. google ad a new Google Tensor G2 processor which should benefit from better performance than its predecessor. Excellent news, as the previous Google Pixels excelled in photography, especially thanks to the software processing of their previous processor.
We will also have to see if Google improves the battery and autonomy of the Google Pixel 7, since the previous generation had been highlighted on this point! First surprise: the battery in the Google Pixel 7 is not bigger than its predecessor. However, Google announces that the autonomy will still be improved, certainly thanks to the new G2 processor, which should manage the device’s energy better.
What are the specifications of the Google Pixel 7 Pro?
We have spoken a lot in the singular since the beginning of this article, but Google has announced the upcoming release of two Pixel 7! The Google Pixel 7 Pro was unveiled at the same time as its little brother. The differences between the two devices are primarily in the screen and camera.
The design of the Google Pixel 7 Pro is very similar to its predecessor. The company intends to continue the excellent momentum started with the Pixel 6 Pro. The device therefore still has a 6.7-inch QHD+ screen that can go up to 120 Hz in terms of refresh rate. Google’s new phone will also still have an additional photo module on the back compared to the base version, but with a revised back design.
On the camera side, the Google Pixel 7 still has four sensors, which will make it the best of the bunch for budding photographers. The specifications are also similar to the previous generation, but the device will be able to count on the new Google Tensor G2 processor to offer superb images. The photo sensors on the Google Pixel 7 Pro are as follows:
- 50 MP wide-angle sensor.
- 12 Mpx ultra-wide-angle sensor with autofocus.
- 48 MP telephoto sensor with 5x optical zoom.
