As expected, today's Made by Google 2022 event was held, during which IT-giant introduced new devices, among other things, Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, the company's new smartphones, based on the Tensor G2 hardware platform.
The design of Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro was discovered long before today's presentation, so the appearance of Google's new smartphones was not surprising. Both machines can boast of a metal body made of processed aluminium and familiar design with a massive panel for the main camera on the back. Externally, the Pixel 7 Pro appears to be more bonus and glossy, while in Pixel 7 the math surfaces prevail.
To date, Pixel 7 Pro is the most advanced Google smartphone. It is equipped with a 6.7-inch AMOLED-display supported by a resolution of 3120 x 1,140 pixels and a 120-Hz update frequency. The screen is protected against damage by the Corning Gorilla Glass Victus glass. It has a 10.8-megapixel frontal camera at the top of the display, capable of recording a 4K video at 30 frames per second and 1080p at 60 frames per second. The main camera of the device combines a 50-megapixel sensor, a 48-mp sensor and a 12-megapixel super-speed sensor. It maintains optical stabilization of the image, recording a 4K video at 60 frames per second and 1080p at a speed of up to 240 frames per second.
Pixel 7 is equipped with a 6.3-inch OLED disk supporting the resolution of 2,400 x 1,800 pixels and the 90 Hz update frequency, which is slightly lower than last year's Pixel 6, which used a 6.4-inch diagonal display. The display protects the glass from mechanical damage by the Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. At the top of the display there is an opening in which a 10.8 megapixel frontal chamber is installed. The main camera is located on the back of the shell and combines a 50-megapixel sensor and a 12-megapixel ultra-triangular sensor.
Google's new smartphones are made up of the 8-nuclear microprocessor Tensor G2 made from the 4 nm process. It combines two cores of Cortex-X1. According to the manufacturer, the processor is 60% faster and 20% more efficient than the predecessor. The new smartphone security is controlled by the selected Titan M2 chip. The graphics include a Mali-G710 MC10 booster. Pixel 7 Pro will be available from 12 Gbytes of operational memory and an UFS 3.1 storage device on 128, 256 or 512 Gbyte. A more accessible Pixel 7 is equipped with 8 Gbytes of OZU and 128 or 256 Gbyte ROM.
In Pixel 7 Pro, autonomous operation is provided by a 5,000 mAh battery, supported by a 30 W fast wire charger and 23 W wireless. Pixel 7 is supported by a 4,355 mAh battery, supported by a 30 W fast wire charger and 21 W wireless. The USB Type-C interface is used to replenish energy in both devices.
Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are run by the Android 13 software platform and will be available in different color versions of the shell. Pixel 7 starts at $600, while the more advanced Pixel 7 Pro will have to pay at least $900. Both devices are already available for pre-order, and the first deliveries will start next week.
