The Google Pixel 7 series is coming out in a few weeks, and the company has confirmed. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro were teased at the Google I/O 2022 keynote earlier this year, and we’ll soon get to see them in person at the launch event on October 6.
But this week, prices for the Pixel 7 series were leaked before they were released, and it looks like Google wants to be aggressive to make its new Pixel flagships a hit on the market. Details that have been leaked suggest that the Pixel 7 will cost around $599 (roughly Rs 48,000), while the Pixel 7 Pro will probably cost around $899. (Rs 72,000 approx).
But should people in India expect to pay these prices when the new Pixel 7 series comes out? We’re afraid that won’t be able to happen. Another leak says that the starting price for the Pixel 7 series will be Rs 52,000, and that’s after discounts. So, expect the base Pixel 7 to start at around Rs 55,000 and the Pixel 7 Pro to start at a much higher Rs 75,000. But why are the prices so different?
As we’ve seen with the Pixel 6a and even the iPhone 14 series, the prices in India include the extra costs of taxes and duties. This is why the Pixel 6a costs Rs 43,999 on a day when it’s not on sale. While the iPhone 14 Pro starts at Rs 1,29,900, this model will cost you almost Rs 40,000 more in the US.
In any case, it’s good to see that Google is bringing the Pixel 7 series to India this year. It will be the first Pixel flagship in the country since the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
Google’s second-generation Tensor chip is in the new Pixel 7, and it should come with Android 13 out of the box. Everyone will care about the cameras, and we can’t wait to see if the new Pixels are as good as this year’s top iPhones. Stay tuned to News18 Tech for all the latest information about the launch of the Pixel 7 series in India, which should happen in the next few weeks.
Google Pixel 7 specs
Here are some of the best things about the upcoming phone:
- Google’s Tensor G2 SoC and Titan chip are used in computing.
- There’s 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space.
- Display is 6.3-inch FHD+ OLED with a refresh rate of 90 Hz.
- The main camera is 50 MP and the ultrawide camera is 12 MP. The selfie camera is 11 MP.
- Operating system: Android 13.
- The battery is 4,700 mAh and can be charged quickly with a wired 30 W charger or wirelessly.
- Other things: Bluetooth LE speakers, stereo speakers
Since all of this should apply to the basic Pixel 7, some features that potential buyers want, like a screen that refreshes at 120 Hz, might make it to the Pro and/or UltraPixel 7. On the other hand, Google is not likely to add memory card support to any of the upcoming phones, for reasons that are easy to understand.
There are rumors that the Google Pixel 7 will cost the same as its predecessor. If this is true, those who are interested can save US$600.
