Improved Design with a Signature Sleek Body Structure

To keep up with its competitors, Google introduces an Always-on display while not allowing itself to be left behind. The flagship smartphone comes with a 6.71-inch LTPO curved AMOLED display panel, QHD+ (1440 x 3120) pixels resolution, 16M display colors, and a refresh rate of 120Hz. The company has used Corning Gorilla Glass Victus on both sides to provide maximum protection to the display screen with a fingerprint sensor at the bottom. The dimensions of recently launched device is 162.9 x 76.6 x 8.9 mm. However, the curved display isn’t one of the appreciated features. The smartphone arrives with a peak brightness of 1,500 nits allows it to be quite visible in the sunlight.

Fortunately, Pixel 7 Pro’s body structure complements the basic concept of the Pixel family, which combines superb performance with noticeable improvements. Its sleek, matte finish metal framed body and exciting design don’t undermine the device’s capability to excel. While following the footsteps of predecessor pixel models, Pixel 7 Pro gained enormous fame and a surge in the tech market. The recently launched smartphone does have dust and water resistance, as mentioned above. The design and structure of the premium phone are two of the significant aspects of its popularity among tech geeks.

Triple Rear Camera Capabilities and Selfie Camera

The latest smartphone flaunts a triple incredible camera module that includes a 50 MP (wide), 48 MP (periscope telephoto angle with 5x optical zoom), and a 12 MP (ultra-wide that has an auto-focus sensor for macro-objects). It comes with a dual-LED flashlight, Pixel Shift, Auto-HDR+, and panorama to capture spectacular images from multiple angles.

Exemplary video quality (4K@30/60fps) is another perk for the premium Pixel 7 Pro consumers. The shaky hands’ problems can be tackled to a great extent while recording videos of your precious moments to let you record bright, distinct, and vibrant videos.

To capture selfies, a user gets a front camera with a 10.8 MP sensor for wide-angle clear images and video calls. The flagship model is enabled with exciting features and remarkable camera quality to make your memories unusual.

Battery Life, Fast Wired and Wireless Charging

The smartphone is powered with a Li-Po 5000 mAh capacity of a non-removable battery. As per the advertisement claims, the device can be charged 50% in 30 mins. It is supported with fast charging 30W wired charging, while a user also gets fast wireless charging with 23W along with reverse wireless charging and USB-C 3.0 power delivery. The charging dock needs some improvement since a user shared on an online platform the smartphone dock is having some issues with charging efficiently. The company promised an elevated and elongated battery life to deliver an amazing user experience.

Nonetheless, in the Google flagship, there is reportedly an extreme drain of battery if the smartphone is used with full brightness. According to multiple battery life tests, it was known that the battery declines up to 10% in the first fifteen minutes when it is operated on maximum brightness. Generally, the peak brightness is only used when we are outdoors on a sunny day. Hence, the device may not consume a considerable percentage of battery when used inside.

Hardware and Software

The smartphone has launched with an improved octa-core CPU (2x2.85 GHz Cortex-X1 + 2x2.35 GHz Cortex-A78 + 4x1.80 GHz Cortex-A55), Mali-G710 MC10. The RAM has three storage variants that can be purchased with a slight difference in price. The device does not house an SD card slot like most companies don’t leave a place for SD cards in their latest smartphones. The sensors include a fingerprint scanner, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, and barometer + ultra-wideband (UWB). The Android 13 operating system makes it a premium model with its high-end quality and the chief cause of its popularity.

Misc. Features

Google’s highly anticipated flagship phone comes with dual SIM (nano-SIM, eSIM) with Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 5.2, GNSS, and NFC and is supported with a USB-C port to conform to the EU guidelines. It comes with dual stereo speakers at the bottom of the smartphone to produce a loud sound. The top-end product comes with multiple laudable AI-based features to let a user chat without typing. The AI advanced technology can turn a user’s voice notes into typed messages without disturbance.

Availability and Pricing

It is certainly a device packed with several numbers of the latest and updated specifications that ensure creditable performance. There are different prices in UK and USA for specific storage capacity. The sale started on 13th of October at a retail price of $900. It is an improved version of the previous model and definitely worth buying. Unfortunately, the official news of the global launch of the Google smartphone is yet to be revealed. We hope to have an announcement from the authorities about the worldwide launch.
