During its I/O conference, Google created a surprise by formalizing the Pixel 7 and its Pixel 7 Pro version. The firm gives us an overview of its smartphones that will arrive this fall.

The announcements multiplied during the Google I/O conference on May 11. The Mountain View firm has notably formalized its Pixel 6a and delivered an overview of Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. A big surprise for smartphones that are not expected before the end of the year. During its presentation, Google discussed the design of its next flagships.

The Californian firm has long searched for this segment, but it finally seems to have found its way. The Pixel style is now well established and its Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are very reminiscent of current models. However, Google has decided to review this famous banner that caused so much ink to flow when the Pixel 6 was announced. Still present, it continues to span the entire width of smartphones and accommodate the photo block. However, the manufacturer has decided to replace the glass with a piece of aluminum to offer a more premium appearance. The renders also hint at the abandonment of the two-tone treatment at the rear; Google currently offers three different colors on the back, for the main part, that of the photo block and the top part.

Towards a more premium design

These visuals also tend to confirm that the Pixel 7 Pro will keep its three photo modules on the back, like the Pixel 6 Pro. We should find a wide-angle main sensor, an ultra-wide-angle and a telephoto lens. Without revealing too much, Google promises that its smartphone will set a new standard in terms of “of photography, performance and design”. The Pixel 7 will still be inspired by the Pixel 6 by offering two sensors on the back.


Google’s hardware manager, Rick Osterloh, certifies that his two models will use a new generation of Google Tensor SoCs. After a promising first attempt, the firm will seek to offer more power and improve the management of artificial intelligence algorithms. The chip will also be used for voice recognition, photography, video and security. On the software side, these smartphones will be delivered with Android 13.

The colors are already known

On Twitter, Google also confirmed the different colors of its future vintage. The Pixel 7 will be available in black, white and lemon yellow, while the Pixel 7 Pro will be entitled to a dark green, in addition to black and white.

Why is Google already showing the Pixel 7?

The announcement of the Pixel 7 is a real surprise from Google. No one expected to see this smartphone at Google I/O 2022 and the firm was content to mention its design. For now, we don’t know anything about the characteristics of the range, except that it will be entitled to the successor of the Tensor.

By formalizing its smartphone, the Mountain View firm seems to want to avoid leaks. For years, it has struggled to keep its secrets as evidenced by the many information about the Pixel 6a or Pixel Watch. This announcement is an opportunity to regain control over the dissemination of information.

When will the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro be released?

This first glimpse does not mean that the next generation of Google smartphones is coming soon. You will have to be patient before you can get your hands on it. Google will launch its Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro this fall, but it could distil information in dribs and drabs to keep us on our toes.
