Google Pixel 7 Rumours: Everything known till now!


The Google Pixel 7 has been revealed by Google and there are certain rumors roaming around. We now know what the phone looks like with updated camera lenses on the iconic horizontal bar. This is according to a sneak peek at the Google I/O developer conference in May. 

We also know that the Pixel 7 will employ the second-generation Tensor processor. This will enable even more AI and machine learning apps in this fall’s phones, as expected.

But there are still a lot of unresolved concerns regarding the Pixel 7. That’s understandable given that the new phones won’t be available until later this year. More Pixel 7 speculations will undoubtedly surface in the coming months, painting a clearer picture of how Google’s phone will compete with smartphones like the Galaxy S22 and the impending iPhone 14 for a spot on the best phones list.


Google Pixel 7 Rumours

Google will most likely keep the Pixel 7 pricing under wraps until the autumn launch. To put things in perspective, the Pixel 6 costs $599, whereas the Pixel 6 Pro costs $899. That’s less than what other phone manufacturers charge for their top models.

As a result, we’re hoping Google can keep the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro costs consistent. It helps Google’s phones stand out from the crowd. Even, it’s likely led to the Pixel 6 becoming the best-selling Pixel in the company’s history.


Google Pixel 7 Rumours

Google reveals that a second-generation Tensor chipset is in the works after the first-generation Tensor seen in the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. Google hasn’t specified what changes to expect, although we’d expect the type of speed boosts and power efficiency improvements that come with processor upgrades.

The AI experiences driven by the new Tensor chipset’s Machine Learning core will be the greater story. Google has yet to announce what they will be.

According to a Pixel 7 rumor, Google will keep the Pixel 7’s cameras the same as the Pixel 6. If that’s the case, the Pixel 7 will have a 50MP primary camera and a 12MP ultrawide angle sensor, with the Pixel 7 Pro adding a 48MP telephoto lens. After all, those are the Pixel 6 camera specifications.

When Google debuted the Pixel 6, it updated the cameras, so it makes likely that the forthcoming phone’s hardware will remain intact. We’re looking forward to seeing what new camera capabilities Google introduces with the improved Tensor processor and computational photography talents.

Release date

So far, if rumors are to be believed Google has only said that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will release in the fall. We can assume the release date in October on our calendars because that’s when Google usually unveils its autumn flagship update.

The Pixel 7 isn’t going to be the next Google phone. Google also revealed the Pixel 6a, a $449 cheap phone. It looks more like last year’s Pixel 6 than the future flagships, during the same I/O presentation where we received our Pixel 7 peek. Preorders for the Pixel 6a begin on July 21, with the phone shipping on July 28. The decks will then be cleared for the Pixel 7 launch.


Google Pixel 7

Because of the on-stage presentation at Google I/O, we have the best idea of what to anticipate from the Pixel 7. As previously stated, Google is preserving the horizontal camera bar introduced with the Pixel 6, but tweaking it. The primary camera and ultrawide camera have been combined, however, there is a separate lens on the Pixel 7 Pro, which we think is the telephoto shooter.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, with their more muted lens design, has a very distinct aesthetic. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro have turned up the volume on the cameras. The lenses stretched across that aluminum bar will be visible to anyone gazing at you holding your phone.

Another possible design modification for the next-generation Pixel is the addition of an under-display selfie camera. That’s according to a Google patent, which builds on the basic under-display selfie camera technology featured in phones like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 as well as the ZTE Axon 30 by using a mirror system to expose either the camera or a section of the display as needed.

Because this is simply a patent, it might take years before it becomes operational, if it ever does. It would, however, be a fantastic focal feature for a future Pixel.

The basic Pixel 7 is to come in black, coral, white, and blue hues. There have been no leaks on the colors the Pixel 7 Pro will be available in, but based on the graphic above, a sky blue option would complement the Pro phone beautifully.

What to Expect?

Faster charging

Faster charging is something that every phone should strive toward, and while Google made progress with the Pixel 6, more work is required to make it a true rival.

The Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro can charge at up to 30W cable and 23W wireless after years of utilizing 18W charging. However, That’s not very quick, especially when you consider phones like the OnePlus 9 series, which can charge to almost full capacity in under half an hour.

It’s conceivable that if you use a Google charger, the Pixel 6 may charge significantly faster, but it’s currently painfully sluggish. Google may improve the wattage of the Pixel 7 charger, or use a twin-cell battery much like the OnePlus 9 to allow for quicker charging at the same power.

Longer battery life

This is something we want to see with each new generation of a phone series, but it’s especially critical for the Pixel 7 series.

The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, although having the biggest batteries ever in a Pixel phone, had unsatisfactory battery life when connected to the internet over 5G. That will become increasingly important as 5G networks stretch out across the United States, the United Kingdom, and beyond unless you can rely on consistent and fast Wi-Fi connections wherever you go.

The batteries of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro don’t appear to be overly tiny, based on their capacity. Instead, Google should presumably concentrate on maximizing the power available within the cells.

More reliable fingerprint reader

There are some issues with the under-display fingerprint scanner on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. This is Google’s first effort at placing the fingerprint scanner beneath the screen; before, the firm has placed the reader on the back of its phones. However, this does not justify the scanner’s unreliability.

It would be good if Google simply fixed the flaws in its present optical fingerprint reader. It would also be a decent idea to use Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint scanner system, which utilizes soundwaves to identify your prints and is less impacted by scratches on the screen.

Another option is for Google to abandon the fingerprint scanner entirely and instead rely on face recognition unlocking, as it did with Google Pixel 4. However, the technology didn’t function very well, and it would take a lot of work to make it as seamless and dependable as Apple’s Face ID. To fit the necessary sensors, Google may need to return to a bigger top bezel. However, we’ve lately heard reports that the Pixel 6 Pro might still gain face unlock. If that occurs, the Pixel 7 Pro will almost certainly follow suit.

Better and brighter displays

There are a few ways Google might enhance the Pixel 7 series’ screens. First and foremost, brightness. Even when set to maximum brightness in direct light, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have shockingly dull screens. Being unable to view your smartphone’s display clearly is unquestionably a terrible thing, so if Google could increase the brightness of the Pixel 7’s display by a few hundred nits, one of the Pixel 6 series’ major flaws would be addressed.

The screen specifications of the regular Pixel 7 model are another possible area for development. The Pixel 6 Pro has 120Hz, whereas the regular Pixel 6 only has 90Hz. That’s an improvement over the 60Hz that smartphones used to provide, but considering that phones cheaper than the Pixel 6 can provide 120Hz. Increasing the Pixel 6’s FHD resolution to QHD, as the Pro does, would be nice, but not as significant.

Another camera

With only two rear cameras, Google has perhaps underserved the Pixel 6. It’s identical to the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4, as well as the basic iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, but it’s still unfair given that some luxury phones now have up to four cameras, including a depth sensor.

A telephoto lens would be a natural choice for a third camera on the standard Pixel 7, even though its magnification wouldn’t equal the 4x optical zoom of the Pro variant. A specialized macro camera for ultra close-up images or a depth camera for more precise portrait shots and greater AR functionality might be useful additions.


Google released some photographs and specifications for the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. It’ll be released later this year, most likely around October. Until then, keep your fingers crossed for a better Pixel phone and keep believing Google Pixel 7 rumors.
