Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro: We believe that different Pixel phones are unique. They differ in terms of appearance, measurement, and perhaps even behavior. There are a lot of ways Google’s impending Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro won’t be the Pixels that came before them, but because we’re purportedly waiting until October before they officially go public, there aren’t many ways we can tell them differently right now. We do, however, have a greater understanding as a result of YouTube’s influence.
Unbox Therapy obtained what are believed to be early development units for both models — we have no reason to doubt they are what they are — and Lewis Hilsenteger set about probing them around on tape. Even if the phones do not run bootable software, we have a lot of small things to pick up.
A glance at the bootloader menus reveals that the Pixel 7 our host was holding has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, while the Pixel 7 Pro had 12GB of RAM from Micron. This information is in addition to what we can see around the bezels, where the selfie camera is located, and how it feels in our hands.
Hilsenteger also performed some careful measurements on each device and discovered that there was a somewhat noticeable shrinkage between the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 7. The former measured at 74.9mm (Google officially lists it at 74.8mm) and 205 kilos, while the latter was 73.2mm and 195 grams. Even while the Pixel 7 Pro is slightly bigger and a hair’s breadth thinner than the Pixel 6 Pro, the Pro versions ultimately weigh about the same. The two phones are both smaller than their forerunners. Even if there is a small margin for error, this is about being close, especially when we date it back to May and early rumors connected to CAD renders.
