Pixel 7 and 7 Pro Updates, Bugs and Issues Tracker [Cont. updated]

Spread the love

The ‘Made by Google’ event was held on October 7, where new hardware products were revealed. During the conference we met the new Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.

Both phones come with some improvements in both hardware and software compared to the Pixel 6 series. However, it is the Pro model that brings the most changes and additions.

The design of the Pixel 7 line maintains the basic concepts of the Pixel 6, only refining them to make them more attractive. On the front, the Pro model’s screen is now completely flat, with no curved edges.

Moving on to the back, now the ‘camera tape’ on the new phones is the same color as the chassis. This means that the camera sensors stand out more.

The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are powered by the new Google Tensor G2 chipset. The SoC provides improvements in power and efficiency thanks to a new 4nm manufacturing process.

Where the new chipset stands out most is in its hardware-level AI processing capabilities. This is the basis for some of the Pixel 7 series’ software improvements, especially to its cameras.

The vanilla Pixel 7 keeps the same camera sensors as the Pixel 6 (50MP main + 12MP ultra-wide), but now the wide lens supports autofocus and macro mode.

On the other hand, the Pixel 7 Pro uses those same sensors and adds a 48MP telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom.

Some of the camera features include speech enhancement, 4K recording, 10-bit HDR video recording, ‘High Quality Mode’ in some third-party apps (like Snapchat and TikTok), cinematic blur, Super Zoom, and more.

The vanilla Pixel 7’s battery capacity is slightly lower than the Pixel 6’s (4,355 mAh vs. 4,614 mAh), but the more efficient chipset and slightly smaller screen should allow for similar battery life. . Fast charging is now faster at 30W.

The Pro model maintains practically the same battery as its previous generation, but its autonomy could be better due to the more efficient chip. Its fast charge is the same as that of the Pixel 7 (30W).

Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro software updates

Both devices run Android 13 with stock UI and some Pixel-exclusive options. They will get 3 years of major Android updates and 5 years of security updates.
