Google Pixel 7 Specs: Tensor 2nd Gen, Plus

Google’s Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro won’t launch until later this year, but at Google I/O 2022, the company unexpectedly provided a first look at the new devices. Spec-wise, here’s what we know about the Pixel 7.

How is the Pixel 7?

In terms of design, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro share a lot in common with the existing Pixel 6 series, and that’s a good thing! These slab smartphones still have the same aluminum and glass construction.

The biggest difference comes in the camera bar, which is now covered in aluminum instead of being made largely of glass. As well as providing an even more unique look to the design, as well as a gorgeous contrast to the “Hazel” model, this surely has some durability benefits as well.

Additionally, Google is also switching from a glossy glass to one that’s “soft touch” or matte, on the Pixel 7 series, at least that’s according to what the company told Marques Brownlee. This echoes the designs that Google introduced in the Pixel 3 and Pixel 4, and it certainly keeps up with the times. Samsung, Apple and others have also long since ditched shiny glass builds.

Pixel 7 specifications

  • To show: 6.2-6.4 inches (unconfirmed)
  • Dimensions: 155.6mm x 73.1mm x 8.7mm
  • Processor: Google’s “next generation” tensor
  • Colors: obsidian, snow, lemongrass

It’s still early to know the specifications of the Pixel 7 series, but we have pretty solid information between reliable leaks and official details from Google. For the standard Pixel 7, we can expect a slightly smaller phone than the Pixel 6. The Pixel 7 measures 155.6mm x 73.1mm x 8.7mm, while the Pixel 6 measures 158.6mm x 74. 8mm x 8.9mm

Under the hood, Google has confirmed our earlier report that the Pixel 7 will run on a “next-gen” Google Tensor processor as the core of its spec sheet. We know that this chip is called “GS201”.

Finally, Google has also confirmed that the Pixel 7 will come in three colors: obsidian (black), snow (white), and lemongrass (yellow).

Pixel 7 Pro Specifications

  • To show: 6.7 inches (unconfirmed)
  • Dimensions: 163mm x 76.6mm x 8.7mm
  • Processor: Google’s “next generation” tensor
  • Colors: obsidian, snow, hazel

The Pixel 7 Pro, meanwhile, appears to offer largely the same set of upgrades, with a telephoto camera added to its rear array, which appear be a curved front screen (we haven’t officially seen the front of the phone) and a larger overall design. The Pixel 7 Pro will be slimmer, but slightly wider than the Pixel 6 Pro at 163mm x 76.6mm x 8.7mm vs. 163.9mm x 75.9mm x 8.9mm.

The Pixel 7 Pro will use the same “next-gen” Tensor chip, but likely with more RAM than the standard model. Google also confirmed that in addition to the black and white color schemes, the Pixel 7 Pro will include a unique “Hazel” color.

This article will be continually updated as Google releases new information about the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro specifications.
