Google Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro Specifications And Features (Expected)
So far, Google has confirmed that the Pixel 7 series will feature the next-generation Google Tensor G2 SoC, which is a slightly tweaked version of the old one. Google claims that the chip will scale up the performance of the experiential features by a big margin.
The design takes after its predecessor with some meaningful refinements over the rear visor which now has a more streamlined look. Other reports claim the Pixel 7 could feature a 6.3-inch Full HD+ OLED display with 90 Hz refresh rate, while the Pixel 7 Pro could come with a 6.7-inch QHD+ OLED display with 120 Hz refresh rate. Google could offer up to 12GB RAM in these with 256GB storage, along with the Titan M security chip.
