It was not long ago that the Pixel 6 series was making headlines for being a revolutionary new product in the google pixel lineup. The pixel series has been Google’s counter to Apple’s iPhones.
The pixel series really grew up when Google adopted the Tensor chip for its Pixel 6 series. With the 1st iteration of the Tensor chips in the Pixel 6 series being widely appreciated, it is no secret that Google is already planning the next generation of the Pixel series and the Tensor SOCs.
There are a few months left for the Pixel 7 series launch but just like always, Google’s CAD renders have been leaked to the world and the obvious has become more concrete, Google is working on a better Pixel which is the Pixel 7 series. The renders for both the Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Pro have been leaked.
The Pixel 7 is slated to come with the second generation of the Tensor SOC by google and that is all that is known about the hardware specs of the Pixel 7 but thanks to the leaked renders we know what the Pixel 7 may look like.
So, What Does the Pixel 7 Look Like?
The Pixel 7 this time will be taking a design cue from its elder sibling the Pixel 7 Pro. The Pixel 7 will be getting the same visor like camera bump from the Pixel 7 pro but will be housing lesser cameras.
On the front, the Pixel 7 will have a centred punch hole with an in-display fingerprint sensor. There were a lot of people who were expecting the Pixel 7 to get a telephoto sensor but sadly based on the renders, Pixel 7 will only be coming with two sensors and these will mostly be the main sensor and the wide-angle sensor.
These are Google Pixel 7 Pro’s CAD renders by OnLeaks.
If it is how the phone is going to look like, I’m actually glad they are keeping that design.
It is now Google’s identity and they need that identity to make them unique. pic.twitter.com/F0W6hOikuG

Pixel 7 Series Will Be More Compact
Aside from the subtle changes in the camera housing, the Pixel 7 will be more compact and easier to hold in general. The effect of people wanting the compact and easy to hold design is seen here.
The dimensions of the new Pixel 7 are reported to be 155.6 x 73.1 x 8.7mm in comparison to these dimensions the Pixel 6 comes with a slightly larger body with the dimensions being 158.6 x 74.8 x 8.9mm.
The changes in the dimensions of pixel 7 showcases the change in the smartphone industry wherein people are shifting from thinking bigger is better to thinking easier is better.
Hardware Specifications of The Pixel 7
The specs of the Pixel 7 series are yet to be revealed and will be known in due time. Even though Google has not yet confirmed that the Pixel 7 series will come with Tensor Gen 2 chips it is safe to assume given the appreciation from the tech community, that the Tensor SOC is here to stay for the Pixel lineup. We will see google competing with Apple more fiercely on the SOC front moving forward.
Pixel 7 Expected Release Date
Pixel 6 was launched in October last year for $599 and the same pattern is expected to be followed by Google in 2022. The Pixel 7 series will be an interesting addition to the smartphone industry and a surmounting threat to Apple’s custom chip superiority.
I hope you are excited for the Pixel 7 series because we sure are and we will be the first to find out when more leaks for the Pixel 7 series arrive, so be sure to keep visiting us for more! Also more…
