Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro launch nears as they appear for the FCC pilgrimage

That Google Pixel 7 and The Pixel 7 Pro has made its scheduled FCC appearance under the guise of model numbers GE2AE, GQML3, GP4BC and GVU6C, unearthed by MySmartPrice.

This indicates that Google is prepared to unleash them on our unsuspecting heads some time after the kids return to the classroom and start pestering their parents about iPhone 14. As a reminder, the Pixel 6 first appeared there as GR1YH, while The Pixel 6 Pro carried the model number GF5KQ.

Google Pixel 7 is launched

If history is any indication, Google will release the phones after The iPhone 14 lineup makes a cameo in mid-September, and the latest date that has been talked about is a Pixel 7 release on Thursday, October 13.
Last year, Google launched the Pixel 6 series on Thursday, October 28, and their announcement falls on October 19. If it repeats the pattern surrounding the Pixel 7 release, the phones will be announced on October 6, and their pre-orders should start right then and there.

It’s only six weeks away, which is why Google is apparently going through FCC and carrier portfolio approval proposals before showing off the Pixel 7 lineup in its full glory.

The phones’ design and some of the specifications have already been teased by Google during their I/O conference this spring, and the phones actually have some changes compared to their predecessors, especially from the rear.

The Pixel 7 is said to come with a slightly smaller 6.3″ screen diagonal, although this could be a rounding detail, but has a more refined and compact design than its predecessor, with the camera bezel blending more seamlessly into the frame.

The aluminum finish will extend to the end of the camera bar, and with the Pixel 7 being made from a “single block of aluminum”, this could mean the regular model won’t be able to offer wireless charging. Despite these several tweaks, the new Pixel 7 is slated to retain the signature horizontal camera island strip and the two-tone body color.

According to other rumors, the Pixel 7 and its larger Pixel 7 Pro sibling will run on a second-generation Google Tensor 2 chipset paired with the new Samsung Exynos 5G modem that’s in the Galaxy S22 series’ Exynos 2200 system chip.

As for the all-important camera setup in the Pixel 7 series, it will once again be a triple set on the 6.7″ Pixel 7 Pro – a 50MP main camera, a 48MP telephoto camera and a camera with an ultra-wide-angle lens – while the 6.4″ Pixel 7 would do without periscope zoom.
