At the moment, Google has not revealed much about the Pixel 7 line’s specs. However, as stated previously, Google stated that it would be powered by the tensor Processor and ship with Android 13.
Rumors have indicated that the display on the pixel 7 series would be largely unchanged. As spotted by 9to5Google, Google has launched some new specs that seem to indicate that the pixel 7 series would feature the same basic display tech as the pixel series 6. This simply means that the Vanilla Pixel 7 would likely have up to about 90Hz refresh rate, while the pro model would get a 120Hz refresh rate.
Also, it looks like both models could make use of the same Samsung display panels as their predecessors. While the 7 Pro could be identical in size compared to its predecessor, the Pixel 7’s display might be slightly smaller, coming in at 1mm narrower and 2mm shorter than the baseline pixel 6.
When it comes to the camera experience, all leaked and official imagery of the phones now show a dual rear camera system for the Pixel 7 and a triple rear camera setup for the Pro Model. It seems most likely that Google would maintain a main/ultrawide setup for the standard phone and a main/ultrawide/periscope system for the pro device.
More details were unveiled on July 26, when developer Kuba Wojciechowski seemingly uncovered the hardware Google intends to use. To begin with, the Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Pro might make use of the same 50MP Isocell GN1 main camera sensors and 12MP Sony IMX381 ultrawide shooters as found on the Pixel 6 lineup.
When it comes to Selfie Shooting, Both the Pixel 7 Series Models could see the 11MP Samsung 3J1 sensor. The Pixel 7 Pro Also could switch out the 48MP Sony IMX586 in its telephoto slot for a 48MP Samsung GM1 Sensor instead.
