Rumor | Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will support storage expansion via microSD card, according to a new leak
Google's imminent major October 2022 product event is expected to introduce the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro as the Mountain View giant's Android 13 flagship vehicles. However, should the slew of leaks and renders surrounding the next-gen devices prove accurate, we all already know how they will differ from their 6-series predecessors.
To that end, the latest round of "Pixel 7" renders, courtesy of the evleaks Twitter account, seems to confirm their design, second-gen rear camera visors and all. The new images also seek to reiterate how their inexplicable new cut-outs are slated to stand out in the 7 or 7 Pro's lighter SKUs, an effect only beaten by that of the 7 Pro's allegedly exclusive "Hazel" colorway.
Blass has followed this post up with another tweet containing images that give the impression of having been lifted from official 7-series manuals. They purport to show where both phones will be keeping their main hardware attributes, buttons, speakers and apparently unchanged 50MP main and 12MP ultra-wide rear shooters included.
The schematics also purport to confirm that Google will ship the 7 series with physical card-readers across the board - a potential sign the OEM does not intend to follow Apple in pushing eSIM uptake quite yet.
Then again, this feature is also simply labelled as a "MICROSD TRAY" in the case of the Pixel 7 - which, as Google has done its best to run expandable memory in smartphones out of existence over the years, might be too good to be true.
