Google Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro coming to India in 3 colours! Specs leak too
The Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be coming to India in all the three colour variants. Know more.
The return of the Google Pixel lineup to India was marked a few months ago by the Pixel 6a, and now Google is readying its iPhone challenger. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be launching in India, thereby succeeding Google's last flagship phones for India from 2018 – the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Ahead of the launch, Google has already started teasing its Pixel phones for India. We already know how both the phones look and going forward, we have a pretty good idea about the colours.
Google India has confirmed bringing the Pixel 7 as well as Pixel 7 Pro to India in three colour variants. The first one is the Obsidian (black with grey accents), Snow (white with silver accents), and Hazel (light green with gold accents). Compared to the iPhone 14 colours, the number is quite low. However, the Pixel 7 gets notable cosmetic changes over the Pixel 6, which itself was a pretty phone, and continues to stand out even today.
Google Pixel 7 colours revealed
Other than the colour variants, the design has also been shown and we know that the Pixel 7 largely keeps the same design as its predecessor, except for a couple of refinements as well as copious use of colours. A recent leak also revealed the entirety of the specifications sheet and not much has changed this time.
The Pixel 7 Pro will get an upgraded Tensor G2 chip, which is expected to offer notable performance upgrades. It is also said to come with 12GB RAM as standard, and a choice of 128GB as well as 256GB storage. The display remains the same; a 6.7-inch QHD+ OLED display with a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz.
The camera setup also remains similar but with new image sensors. Google will ditch the Sony IMX582 sensor and use a 48MP Samsung GM1 sensor for the telephoto camera. The 50MP main camera and the 12MP ultra-wide camera remain unchanged. The selfie camera remains the same at 11MP but a new Samsung sensor and autofocus capability are additions for 2022.
The Pixel 7 Pro will continue to use the 5000mAh battery and offer support for 30W wired charging. There will be support for Qi standard wireless charging as well.
What remains to be seen is how Google prices the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro in India. Previous Pixel flagships always competed with the iPhones of the year, and we expect the Pixel 7 series to take the fight to the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, and Galaxy S22 Plus.
