The Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro were formally revealed at Google IO 2022 in May, and it’s widely anticipated that they will have a complete launch in October. However, new information about these phones keeps leaking out.
We now want to share with you a quick yet informative unpacking video of the Pixel 7 Pro. We can see a brand-new black edition of the phone being slid out of its box and the packaging covering it being ripped off in a photo posted by Gadgetfull BD (opens in new tab) (via 9to5Google (opens in new tab)).
The 44-second video continues so that we can watch the device start up and see the Google logo before the Pixel setup page displays.
What We Know As of Now
However, the video doesn’t go much farther than that, so we aren’t given a glimpse of the Android 13 operating system.
Pixel aficionados will surely want to watch this unboxing video, but it doesn’t really reveal anything new about the phone that we didn’t already know; after all, Google has previously shown off the phone’s design.
However, it makes a difference to be able to view the actual gadget in the real world. With a 6.71-inch display on the front, the Google Pixel 7 Pro is anticipated to closely resemble the Google Pixel 6 Pro in terms of physical dimensions. The Pixel 7 Pro will include a triple-lens back camera configuration, much like its predecessor.
The second-generation Tensor processor created by Google and Samsung will power both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, thus there will be internal enhancements. We’ll have to wait till the entire announcement for information on the other important specifications.
Google Vs Apple
The actual date of the complete and formal debut of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro is still up for question. Previous Pixel models have typically gone on sale in October, but there have been suggestions that Google would instead release the 2022 versions to the public in September.
Naturally, it would bring the Pixel 7’s release date even closer to that of the iPhone 14’s. Despite their being no official confirmation as of yet, it would be a great surprise if new iPhones weren’t announced during Apple’s presentation on September 7.
The Pro versions appear to be receiving many of this year’s major enhancements in the form of faster CPUs and a few other changes.
In terms of hardware and software quality, we’d say that the Google Pixel series is catching up to the Apple iPhone, but it still has a ways to go. As a result, it will be interesting to watch what both companies have to offer up in the coming month or two.
