Pixel 7 Pro

The natural successor to the Pixel 6 Pro is the Pixel 7 Pro. So what do we know so far? This guide will take you through the Pixel 7 Pro release date, specs, and more about Google’s next flagship.

Pixel 7 Pro release date

If the Pixel 7 series release is anything like 2021, then the Pixel 7 Pro release date will likely sit somewhere around October of 2022. Usually, Google announces these flagships in autumn – the best of the seasons. This was confirmed on May 11 at Google I/O 2022 when the company announced the 7 Pro in an unprecedented twist.

As far as the release date goes, there’s nothing concrete as of yet. The only information we have so far is that the device will be making its way to the public sometime this fall.

What are the Pixel 7 Pro specs?

Google was reluctant to unveil any big details about the upcoming Pixel 7 Pro. That isn’t to say we don’t know anything. In fact, our APK Insight team has done a bit of digging and has unsurprisingly uncovered a couple of upcoming details about the Pixel 7 Pro’s internals.

First, we’re confident we are looking at a second-generation Tensor chip, which seems like a natural progression considering Google is very proud of the first iteration of its house-made processor. With a little bit of digging, we’ve learned that the name for Tensor version two will be “GS201.” Within this SoC will also be a new Samsung modem, which was learned to be named “g5300b.” This is likely the Exynos Modem 5300, which hasn’t been announced or released yet.

Other than processor information, there isn’t much else available yet in terms of Pixel 7 Pro specs. We’re expecting Google to focus on Tensor GS201 and develop a device that can showcase what the processor is capable of.

On the surface of the Pixel 7 Pro, we can glean a few quite stunning details about the phone. One of the bigger changes is the new camera bar design. Rather than having a wide glass panel that covers the sensors on the back of the phone, we’re left with an aluminum casing that houses these cameras. Google mentioned that the aluminum here is made from 100% recycled materials.

What will be the price?

Price is a tricky thing to nail down. Prior to the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, the general consensus was that those devices would be at least $800 and up. Our team was blown away when the starting price for the Pixel 6 was announced at $599. If you take that into consideration, there’s a good chance the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will follow suit and take on an affordable price tag. As mentioned, we can’t simply put a price on the new Pixel device this early. Even if it followed the Pixel 6 Pro pricing, we’re looking at around $899 or more.

As more information becomes available, this guide will be updated. Be sure to keep checking back to stay up-to-date on the latest news.
