The Google Pixel 7 Pro and Google Pixel 7 were announced towards the end of Google I/O 2022. The company showed off both handsets and even teased some details. While this was quite exciting, the hype has abated considerably since then. Thankfully, new information about the handsets has been revealed and it looks like the two devices will finally have a release date.
Jon Prosser, better known for his Apple intel, revealed that the Google 7 handsets would launch in mid-October. According to its trusted and reputable sources, both phones will be available for pre-order from October 6 and later go on sale from October 13. In addition, Prosser doubled down on the dates and stated that he previously provided accurate information about the release dates for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
As for official information, Google has shared images and renders of the phones, the latest of which can be seen in the attached videos. The design of the phones is quite polarizing, but Google is leaning towards its unique design, which started with the Pixel 6 devices. The back has a unique visor that houses the phone’s cameras. When it comes to the internal components, what is known as of now is that Google will debut its next-generation Tensor processor. When released, these smartphones should become formidable handsets in the Android space, especially since they should be running Android 13 at launch.
Google is also expected to release its Google Pixel Watch. The smartwatch was teased at Google I/O 2022. While not much is known about the wearable, we have a few details. The device has a round AMOLED display and a physical crown. It is rumored to be powered by an older generation Samsung chipset, with 1.5 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage.
One advantage it could have over its competitors is that it will likely run Wear OS 3. Despite the OS being announced quite some time ago, it has yet to arrive on many wearables. For now, we’ll have to be patient, as Google hasn’t even announced a date for its event which is reportedly set to take place sometime in the fall. Fortunately, there are other events ahead, most notably Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked, which takes place next week on August 10.
