Google’s new Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones will be officially revealed at a “Made by Google” event on October 1. 6. Thanks to a leaked spec comparison from a mobile carrier in Taiwan (via 9to5Google), we now know most of the key features of the new phones.
Before we get started, it’s worth noting that the spec sheet images were shared on Telegram and have apparently been removed from the website they originated from, so it’s hard to confirm their authenticity. Still, the specs are in line with what’s expected of Google’s new phones, with a few surprises.
According to the spec sheet, the Pixel 7 has a 6.3-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate, Google’s Tensor G2 chip, 8GB of RAM, and 128/256GB of storage. It has a 50-megapixel main rear camera, along with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and a 10.8-megapixel selfie camera.

The Pixel 7 Pro is quite a bit more powerful. It has the same Tensor G2 chip, selfie camera, and storage options, but it comes with a 6.7-inch, 120Hz display and 12GB of RAM.
On the rear, the Pixel 7 Pro has an additional 48-megapixel telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom, which will provide 30x hybrid zoom. This is an upgrade compared to the Pixel 6 Pro, whose optical zoom only went as high as 4x.
Camera features highlighted by Google include Movie Motion Blur (on both models) and Macro Focus (Pixel 7 Pro only).
Notably, both phones now have face unlock capabilities, which is good news for people who aren’t fans of the in-display fingerprint sensor.
We will see if all this is true on October 1. 6, when the new phones are scheduled to be revealed alongside Google’s new Pixel Watch.
