Google Pixel 7 specs: Second-gen Tensor and everything we know so far

Google’s Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro aren’t expected to launch until later this year, but during Google I/O 2022, the company unexpectedly offered a first look at the new devices. As for specs, here’s what we know about the Pixel 7.

What does the Pixel 7 look like?

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 is the camera bar, which is now clad in aluminum instead of mostly glass. In addition to giving the design an even more unique look, as well as a wonderful contrast on the “Hazel” model, this surely also has advantages in terms of durability.

New: The Pixel 7 series was expected to bring back the delightful soft-touch matte glass of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 4 series, but Google quickly corrected that previous statement. Unfortunately, the Pixel 7 will remain glossy, although both Samsung and Apple have discontinued these designs for some time now.

Pixel 7 specs

  • Display: 6.2-6.4 inches (unconfirmed)
  • Dimensions: 155.6mm x 73.1mm x 8.7mm
  • Processor: Google Tensor “next generation”
  • Colors: Obsidian, Snow, Citronella

It’s still early days when it comes to knowing the specs of the Pixel 7 series, but we have some 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 confirmed our previous report that the Pixel 7 will run on a “next-gen” Google Tensor processor at the heart of its spec sheet. We know that this chip is called the “GS201”.

Finally, Google has also confirmed that the Pixel 7 will be available in three colors: Obsidian (black), snow (white) and citronella (yellow).

Pixel 7 Pro specs

  • Display: 6.7 inches (unconfirmed)
  • Dimensions: 163mm x 76.6mm x 8.7mm
  • Processor: Google Tensor “next generation”
  • Colors: Obsidian, Snow, Hazelnut

Meanwhile, the Pixel 7 Pro appears to offer largely the same set of upgrades, with a telephoto lens added to its rear array, which appears being a curved front display – we haven’t officially seen the front of the phone – and a larger overall design. The Pixel 7 Pro will be thinner, but slightly wider than the Pixel 6 Pro at 163mm x 76.6mm x 8.7mm versus 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 has also confirmed that in addition to black and white colorways, Pixel 7 Pro will include a unique “Hazel” color.

This article will be continually updated as Google releases new information regarding Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro specs.
