Google Pixel 7 Pro: Leaker reveals important specifications for upcoming flagship smartphone
Yesterday, Yogesh Brar summarised Pixel 7 specifications, details of which we have discussed separately. Now, it is the Pixel 7 Pro's turn, highlighting the similarities between the two Pixel 7 series models. Incidentally, the Pixel 7 Pro shares many of its features with the Pixel 6 Pro, including its design.
Still, Google has upgraded its flagship smartphone to the Tensor G2, a second-generation in-house SoC that should deliver superior GPU performance, among other changes. Purportedly, the Tensor G2 may only shade its predecessor's CPU performance, though. Additionally, Brar stresses that the Pixel 7 Pro will retain a Titan security chip, as well as a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 30 W fast charging. Likewise, the device will come with 12 GB of RAM and 128 GB or 256 GB of storage in most markets.
Moreover, the Pixel 7 Pro has a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a QHD resolution and an LTPO backplane for varying its refresh rate up to 120 Hz. It remains to be seen whether the display can operate as low as 1 Hz, although there have been rumours of Google including a newer and brighter display panel than the one found in the Pixel 6 Pro.
Furthermore, the Pixel 7 Pro relies on the Samsung ISOCELL GN1 as its primary camera, a 50 MP sensor that Google complements with 12 MP ultra-wide-angle and 48 MP telephoto lenses. Not only does the Pixel 7 Pro stick with 5x optical zoom, but it also has last year's 11 MP front-facing camera. Google will launch the Pixel 7 Pro with Android 13 on October 6, with a release date seemingly set for October 13. As it stands, it seems that Google has set the device's launch price at US$899.99.
