Google has launched the 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 out of the box as well as stereo speakers. Here are some good things about the Pixel 7 series.
Pixel 7 features an improved Tensor G2 chip
The Google Pixel 7 series features Google’s improved Tensor G2 chip. While the new chip offers a small performance boost over its predecessor, that’s not where the new chip really stands out. The chip will be equipped with more powerful machine learning tools, allowing it to translate languages in real time.
The G2 chip will also power the new Super Res Zoom feature and tools like Movie Blur and Face Deblur. Google says the chip will power major advances in voice, photography, video technology and security.
Face and Fingerprint Unlock
Face unlock was a feature the Pixel line didn’t offer until the Pixel 4, but was dropped on later models. The feature is back on the Pixel 7, and an added bonus is that the fingerprint scanner is here to stay on the phone. The Google Pixel 6 had a number of issues with the fingerprint sensor that were later fixed with an update, but we’ll still have to wait and see if this becomes an issue with the Pixel 7 series.
Feature drops and software updates
As we all know, Google’s Pixel phones are the first to get software updates and the latest Android version. In addition to this, Google also made “Feature Drops”. As part of the program, Google rolled out new features for Pixel phones on top of the usual Android OS updates. So if you buy a Pixel 7, you can expect to get interesting new features every three months. Google is also promising 5 years of security updates for the Pixel 7 series.
Front camera with 4k support.
Google’s Pixel phones have always been known for their photography prowess, thanks in large part to the company’s excellent image-processing algorithms. This time around, while the main and ultra-wide cameras are the Pixel 6 series, its front-facing camera is a new 10.8-megapixel unit capable of recording 4k video at 60fps.
