Appointment is made for October 6, the date on which the next Google announcements will take place. The Mountain View company intends to formalize several products there, starting with its first Pixel watch, the Pixel Watch, but also its Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones, all partially unveiled at the Google I/O conference last May. One or more Nest products should also be there, while the new Chromecast did not wait for the event to make its debut.
The Pixel 7 series is for its part the subject of many rumors and the technical sheets of the smartphones are revealed before their presentation. For the case of the Pixel 7, succeeding the excellent Pixel 6, according to Yogesh Brarof the site 91mobiles, things are getting clearer. Starting with the diagonal of its screen, which would increase this year from 6.4 to 6.3 inches. However, it would still be a Full HD + Oled panel with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, the 120 Hz remaining reserved for the Pro models in the series.
the leaked sheds light on Google’s new Tensor SoC, which would be dubbed G2 and would include a Titan chip dedicated to securing personal data. Everything would be accompanied by 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage. It will probably not be expandable, and it is to be expected, if Google maintains its habits, the only marketing of a 128 GB version of the smartphone in France.
Let’s add that on the photo side, the Pixel 7 would retain its main 50-megapixel photo sensor, with a wide-angle and an ultra-wide-angle accompanying a 12-megapixel sensor: if something new is to be expected, it would therefore be in the software department. An 11 Mpx camera would sit on the front, replacing the 8 Mpx module of the Pixel 6. Let’s end with the mention of a 4700 mAh battery instead of 4614 on the Pixel 6, with wireless or wired charging at 30 W.
If US analysts are to be believed, the Pixel 7, like its Pro counterpart, would retain the same price as the Pixel 6…but only in the US. We should nevertheless expect a price increase in Europe, as was the case with the iPhone 14 at Apple, placing the Pixel 7 beyond the €649 that the Pixel 6 cost at launch.
