Google first revealed the Pixel 7 series and the Pixel Watch at the I/O developer conference in May. After months of waiting, the Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, and Pixel Watch are all here. Here, we will take a look at the Google Pixel 7 Pro along with its specs, features, expected price, and availability in Nepal.
Google Pixel 7 Pro Overview:
The Pixel 7 Pro builds on the design language established by Google with the Pixel 6 series. The distinct and recognizable rear camera visor now has a brushed metal finish rather than the black glass seen on previous models. Likewise, the camera cutouts are more prominent this year but besides that not much has changed. Google offers the Pixel 7 Pro in three colors Obsidian, Snow, and Hazel.
The phone also enjoys IP68 water resistance. Google has highlighted the usage of recycled materials with 100% of the polished enclosure being made of recycled aluminum. Based on weight, 19% of the Pixel 7 Pro is made of recycled materials.
While the vanilla Pixel 7 features a flat-screen, the Pixel 7 Pro has a bigger and better 6.71-inch curved AMOLED display. However, the curve is not as aggressive as last year. The screen has a QHD+ resolution and the LTPO technology allows the refresh rate to vary from 10Hz to 120Hz based on the content. Furthermore, the display is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.

While there is not much difference externally, the internals tells a different story. Both the Pixel 7 and the 7 Pro are powered by Google’s new and improved Tensor G2 SoC which is based on Samsung’s 4nm fabrication process. The new octa-core processor includes two 2.85GHz Cortex-X1 Prime cores, two 2.35GHz Cortex-A78 Performance cores, and four 1.8GHz Cortex-A55 cores, as well as a Mali G710 MP07 GPU.
When compared to the Mali G78 on the first-generation Tensor chip, the Mali G710 MP07 GPU provides a 35% boost for machine learning tasks. Overall, this new Tensor G2 SoC can run machine learning tasks 60% faster and 20% more efficiently. In addition, the new Pixel phones include an exclusive Photo Unblur feature that uses artificial intelligence to sharpen blurry images from any device.
As for memory, the Pixel 7 Pro ships with 12GB of RAM, and buyers can choose between 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage. Unfortunately, there is no microSD support for storage expansion.
The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are the first phones to boot on Android 13 out of the box. In addition, they will pack some Pixel-exclusive features like direct audio message transcriptions on Google Message, Clear Calling, and Speech Enhancement among others. The phones also feature Cough and Snore detection.
The security on the phone is handled by the Titan M2 chip. To improve online security, the devices will get Google One VPN in the near future at no extra cost. Also, the phones will get at least 5 years of security updates.
The Google Pixel 7 Pro features a triple camera array on the back. The main camera module is a 50MP sensor with the option for 4-in-1 binning. It also has optical image stabilization and electronic stabilization. The Pixel 7 Pro’s 12MP ultrawide camera has a 125.8° field of view. The ultrawide also has autofocus this year, allowing for macro shots.
Moving on, the third rear camera is a 48MP telephoto sensor with 5x optical zoom. Over on the front, it has a 10.8MP selfie shooter with a 92.8° field of view. The phone is capable of taking 4K videos at 60fps as well as 10-bit HDR videos. To enhance the camera experience on third-party apps, Google has partnered up with the likes of TikTok and Snapchat. Thanks to the machine learning capabilities of the Tensor G2, the Pixel 7 Pro now features a cinematic blur mode as seen on recent iPhones.
Rest of the specs
The Pixel 7 Pro has a 5,000mAh battery with wired and wireless charging support. Google claims that the phone can be charged up to 50% in about 30 minutes using the official 30W USB-C charger. Furthermore, it supports reverse wireless charging. According to Google, the new ‘Extreme Battery Saver’ can provide up to 72 hours of battery life.
The handset has an in-display fingerprint scanner and face unlock for security. In terms of audio, it has stereo speakers and a 3 microphone setup for noise suppression.
