Google continues its journey on the yet overloaded smartphone market by offering in a few weeks the seventh iteration of its flagship model: the pixel ! Even if the American firm is rather stingy with information, here we take stock of everything we know.
Google Pixel: 7 in a row!
Let’s start with what will interest Pixel fans the most with the release date that has reportedly leaked in recent days. This new model should thus come out October 18. As for its price, it should be in the same range as that of the 6 models when they were released. We can therefore imagine a Pixel 7 from €649 and a Pixel 7 Pro from €899. The note may also go up if you choose a larger flash memory.
For the technical part, here is what to expect for the Pixel 7:
- A 6.4-inch FHD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate,
- A Samsung GN1 50 MP main photographic sensor (f / 1.9) and a Sony IMX386 12 MP ultra wide-angle
- An 11 MP front sensor allowing you to shoot in 4K
And for the Pixel 7 Pro:
- A 6.7-inch QHD+ OLED display (3220 x 1440 pixels) with a refresh rate of 120 Hz,
- The same two modules as the Pixel 7 plus a 48 MP x4 telephoto lens with optical stabilization.
- The same front sensor as the Pixel 7
Note that an Ultra version of the Pixel 7 should see the light of day later in the year with a more successful design and a more polished photo part.
The Pixel 7 will run thanks to a Tensor 2 chip manufactured by Samsung and engraved in a fineness of 4 nm. It will consist of 2 Cortex-X1 cores, 2 Cortex-A76 cores and 4 Cortex-A55 cores. The first two will have frequencies of 2.85 GHz and 2.35 GHz respectively, which will offer a 10% performance boost over the Pixel 6. Finally, the chip should be equipped with a Mali-G710 GPU whose performance would again be 20% higher than that of the previous generation.

All this information is of course to be taken with a grain of salt but should be confirmed October 6 during the official presentation of the Pixel 7 by Google.
Meanwhile, in Bangladesh, some people are already unboxing!
