We can only hope that the camera block looks better in person if Google decides to make it appear like this.
We’re getting a better image of Google’s upcoming flagship phone in our brains as more Google Pixel 7 rumors surface. If envisioning it is too difficult for you right now, we have some renderings to look at instead, which reveal an odd-looking design update.
Parvez “TechnizoConcept” Khan, a 3D artist, created these, which were released by LetsGoDigital. These, according to LGD, are based on recent leaks by OnLeaks, who shared his own renderings for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
The design is quite similar to the drastically redesigned look of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, as shown in these photographs. A curved display with a punch-hole selfie camera is visible from the front. The display may alter in size from last year, increasing from 6.7 to 6.8 inches, or it may remain the same size but in a different overall body, given leaked measurements reveal the phone’s height and depth would be somewhat different.
Like the Pixel 6 Pro, we expect the panel will include a QHD resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, as well as a fingerprint scanner beneath it. We only hope it performs much better on the Pixel 7 than it did on the Pixel 6.
The rear has a two-tone color scheme similar to that of the Pixel 6 Pro’s Sorta Sunny option. The phone’s broad camera bar, on the other hand, has seen a significant alteration. Instead of having the three back sensors concealed behind black glass, this render has clear glass panels over them, calling attention to them.
We’ve seen this before in the shape of a strange loop around two cameras and another around the additional sensor on the Pro model in CAD renderings and other leaks. It appears to be the sole method to distinguish the Pixel 7 series from the Pixel 6 at a glance.
It’s likely that the cameras under these transparent covers will be a main/ultrawide/telephoto mix once again. It’s unclear whether Google would make any hardware upgrades, such as higher-resolution or bigger sensors because there have been no speculations regarding this thus far.
While there are currently no speculations concerning the Pixel 7’s software, it appears that it will be one of the first phones to ship with Android 13 out of the box. This will purportedly be powered by a new microprocessor, probably a direct successor to Google’s first proprietary smartphone chip, the Tensor.
We expect the Pixel 7 to be unveiled during a launch event in October, similar to the Pixel 6, and maybe after a lengthy teaser campaign. Other speculations suggest that a Pixel Fold (or Pixel Notepad) foldable phone will be released with it. The Pixel 6a might be released sooner, potentially in May or August, coupled with a Pixel Watch wristwatch.
