The Pixel 7 series teasers give a good look at its rear design. As can be seen, the rear panel of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro feature a protruding horizontal camera bar, which extends to the frame on both sides. The camera strip is made from polished aluminium. The renders show that the Pixel 7 lineup will not have a dual-tone finish like the Pixel 6 series.

The Pixel 7 has a single pill-shaped camera cutout for its dual-camera setup, whereas the Pro model has two cutouts for its triple camera unit. The search giant did not share any information on the camera configurations of the Pixel 7 lineup.

Google confirmed that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be powered by the next-generation Tensor chip. Both phones will come preinstalled with Android 13 OS. The other specs of the Pixel 7 lineup are under wraps.

The Pixel 7 is expected to feature a 6.3-inch FHD+ OLED panel whereas the Pixel 7 Pro will come with a 6.7-inch or 6.8-inch OLED panel that offers a Quad HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. Both phones will come equipped with an under-display fingerprint scanner.

According to a recent tweet by tipster Yogesh Brar, the Pixel 7 series will sport the same optics that were made available on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. To recall, the Pixel 6 features an OIS-enabled 50-megapixel main camera and a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera. On the other hand, the Pixel 6 Pro’s triple camera unit comprises an OIS-assisted 50-megapixel primary camera, a 12-megapixel ultrawide lens, and a 48-megapixel telephoto camera with support for OIS and 4x optical zoom.

The Pixel 6 series did not release in India. It remains to be seen whether the Pixel 7 lineup will be coming to the country.
