Google Pixel 7 prototype appears online with a textured metal frame [Gallery]


Google I/O surprised us all with an official first look at the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, and now we’re getting more thanks to an early prototype of the Pixel 7 appearing on eBay.

An eBay listing appeared today for someone selling what is claimed to be a prototype of the Pixel 7. Shortly after this article was published, around 1:30 p.m. ET, the listing was taken down.

The device is presented in its black “Obsidian” model, with a glossy glass back and the new metal camera bar that Google previously showed off. The device also has a consistent, but updated logo from Google’s older prototypes.

Since Google has already officially unveiled the Pixel 7 design, this eBay listing doesn’t tell us much more, although it does confirm that the Pixel 7 will lose the Pixel 6’s matte black frame (which we loved) in exchange. for a textured metal frame. We can also see the mmWave antenna window that previously appeared in CAD leaks.

Somewhat hilariously, the Pixel 7 Pro can also be seen in the reflection, with its distinctive camera bar taking pictures of this phone.

The listing went on to mention that the phone is already running Android 13 and “pixel apps in development.”

The only other tidbit from this leak is a quick look at storage; we can see that the Pixel 7 will have 128GB of storage, as it was predicted.

Google has already confirmed that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be released this fall. The Pixel 7 specs will include a second-generation Tensor chipset. This updated design will come in the “Obsidian” color we see here and will be sold in “Lemongrass” and “Snow.”
