Google launched Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro globally and in India. The phones feature a familiar design language with new colors and updated specs. Both phones also come with Android 13 and stereo speakers. Here are some of the best things about the Pixel 7 series.
The Pixel 7 features the improved Tensor G2 chip
The Google Pixel 7 range features Google’s improved Tensor G2 chip. While the new chip offers a small performance boost over its predecessor, that’s not really what’s notable about the new chips. The chip will have more powerful machine learning tools that will allow it to translate languages in real time.
The G2 chip will also support the new Super Res Zoom feature and tools like Cinematic Blur and Face Unblur. Google said the chip will bring major advances in voice, photography, video technology and security.
Unlock face and fingerprint
Face Unlock was a feature that was available on the Pixel series up to the Pixel 4, but was dropped on later models. The feature returns to the Pixel 7 and as an added benefit, the fingerprint scanner remains on the phone. The Google Pixel 6 had many fingerprint sensor issues that were later fixed with updates, but we’ve yet to see if this will be an issue with the Pixel 7 series.
Feature drops and software updates
It’s no secret that Google’s Pixel phones are the first to receive software updates and the latest Android versions. Apart from that, Google also does “feature drops”. As part of the program, Google is rolling out new features to the Pixel phone outside of the usual Android OS updates. So if you buy the Pixel 7, you can expect interesting new features every three months. Google also promises 5 years of security updates for the Pixel 7 series.
4k capable front cameras.
Google’s Pixel phones have always been famous for their photographic prowess, thanks in no small part to the company’s excellent image processing algorithms. This time around, while the front camera is the primary and ultra-wide like the Pixel 6 series, its front camera is a new 10.8-megapixel unit capable of shooting 4k video at 60fps.
