On Wednesday, May 11, the biggest search engine giant officially revealed the first look of their new Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro at Google I/O 2022.
During the keynote, the company unexpectedly unveiled the revamped design of this year’s Pixel devices with an aluminum camera bar. As the initial look reveals several months early, the new Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro will be officially launched later this year.
The biggest notable change in smartphones is of course newly-designed camera bar. A full aluminum covering with cutouts for rear cameras, which replaces the existing glass look on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
The new Pixel devices are powered by the second-generation Google Tensor chip and will ship with Android 13 out of the box and will be available in Obsidian, Snow, and Lemongrass colorways for the Pixel 7, while the Pixel 7 Pro will skip Lemongrass for the exclusive Hazel color.
The pricing is currently unclear but it is expected to remain the same as its predecessors, meaning it may cost $599 for the Pixel 7 and $899 for the high-end Google Pixel 7 Pro.
At I/O 2022, Google also showcased the new Pixel 6a, Pixel Watch, Pixel Buds Pro, and upcoming Pixel Tablet. More details about the new Googe products will come in the coming months.
