Google’s latest Pixel phones are coming. Earlier this year, the tech giant announced that the smartphones would hit the market “late 2022”, but a recent leak has revealed the official date.

Google Pixel 7 (Pro ) available from October 13
According to smartphone insider Jon Prosser from FrontPageTech are the new Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro can be pre-ordered from October 6, and will be on buyers’ doorsteps from October 13. He says he knows this from ‘very reputable sources’. According to Prosser, October 6 is also the date of the Google event, where the devices officially see the light of day.
Whether Jon Prosser’s sources are right remains to be seen. In the past, Prosser spread both correct release info and incorrect ones. For example, we knew well in time when the Pixel 6 was released, but the cancellation of the Pixel 5a not to be true.
The Pixel 7 series follows in the footsteps of the Pixel 6- smart phones. That means we expect a regular Google Pixel 7 and a Pro model. Both devices are said to have a second-generation Tensor chip on board. That is
Googles own chip, which is known for efficiency and AI -possibilities.
The difference between the Pro model and the regular Pixel 7 is mainly in the hardware. For example, the Pro gets three instead of two cameras on the back and the screen is bigger (and maybe better). Both devices run on Android 13, the latest version of the mobile operating system. The phones also immediately receive the latest Android and security updates.
No official announcement has been made about the price yet. We can, however, look at the prices of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The former has a suggested retail price of 649 euros and the Pro model costs 899 euros. Whether the Pixel 7 series also has such a decent price-quality ratio is unknown.
It is unlikely that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will officially appear in the Netherlands. Google often skips our little country. If you want to purchase a Pixel phone, you will have to do this through a provider – which imports the device from another country.
