Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro with the same luggage of photo sensors as the previous ones

By Sylvain PICHOT

After the good Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, Google intends to keep this momentum and should soon offer the new Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro after the Pixel 6a expected for an official announcement on May 11. The future Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro should have the same sensors as the previous ones but benefit from software optimizations.

Google has particularly innovated for its Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro not only in terms of design marking a certain break with the old Pixel 4a 5G or Pixel 5, almost carbon copies, but also in terms of computing power having had a chip developed. special, the Tensor chipset made by Samsung. The photo part has also been revised upwards with sensors carrying many more pixels than the generations before, even if it is always necessary to remember that the number of pixels does not make all the quality of a sensor. We know the skills of Google to develop extremely advanced photo processing to obtain very beautiful shots. Thus, compared to the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro might seem a little less exciting, but it is not knowing Google that should bet precisely on software processing for photos.

Photo configurations identical to the previous ones

Indeed, it seems that this is the path chosen by the American giant for its next smartphones. Multiple sources believe they know the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will have the same specs as the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, respectively. 50+12 megapixels and 50+12+48 megapixels (with 4x optical zoom). They will certainly be optimized to get the best performance possible. Besides, Google’s next smartphones would also retain much of the design of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro with a wide band at the back to integrate the photo sensors. The Pixel 7 could have a 6.3-inch screen compared to the current Pixel 6’s 6.4-inch while the Pro version would have the same screen. They should be powered by the second generation of Google Tensor chips and we expect an official announcement by October at the latest.
