Google’s flagship announcement of its Oct. 6 Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro event was accompanied by a video showing the Pixel 7 series, which makes it clear the phone will be the main focus of the event. Google also said pre-orders might start from Thursday next week.
Google Pixel 7: Expected specifications
The Google Pixel 7 is said to come with a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with 1080×2400 pixel resolution. The AMOLED display is said to offer 90Hz of refresh rate. This upcoming handset is confirmed to be powered by Google’s customized Tensor G2 chipset, The smartphone is said to pack 8GB of RAM and come in two storage options- 128GB and 256GB

Google Pixel 7 – The Tensor Chip
Google’s in-house silicon, known as the Tensor chip, made its debut in the Pixel 6 series. And Google will continue to pack its phones with its own chips with the upcoming Pixel 7 lineup. It’s set to receive a second-gen Tensor chipset, the company said in May. This announcement isn’t surprising: Google took on the costly and complex task of developing an in-house chipset, so why not use that chipset in its phones?
Some of the enhancements from the chip are evident in the Pixel 6’s camera system, which has new features that aren’t available on previous Pixel devices. These include Magic Eraser for deleting unwanted objects in photos and Real Tone, which portrays skin tones more accurately. Although we don’t know much about the second-gen Tensor chip yet, we can likely expect similar machine learning-based improvements.
