Although we are aware of the Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro’s existence and impending release later this year, there isn’t a lot of official information available about them. Now that fresh information has come to light, we know a little bit more about what to anticipate from these phones.

You might recall that there was a prior leak that said the Samsung-made screens used by the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro would be the same as those used by its predecessors. However, the most recent examination of modified Android source code indicates that wasn’t the case.

The Pixel 7 Pro may be employing a slightly different Samsung display panel, one with the same 3120 x 1440 pixel resolution but a greater maximum brightness level, as noted by Mishaal Rahman.

All now bright

The Pixel 7 Pro will be able to reach 600 nits of brightness in manual mode, if the Android code, which is being changed in preparation for the Pixel 7 phones, is understood correctly (up from a maximum of 500 nits on the Google Pixel 6 Pro).

The Pixel 7 Pro would have a maximum brightness of 1,000 nits in high brightness mode, exceeding the maximum brightness of 800 nits of the Pixel 6 Pro. The Google 2021 flagship phone has a dazzling display, but the 2022 model could surpass it.

Google has kept a lot of information about the Pixel 7 smartphones a secret, including when we could finally see them. However, based on past performance, they ought to start selling and releasing completely in October.

Building on the momentum of Pixel

A watershed moment for Google was marked with the release of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. For the first time with the Pixel series, Google truly appeared serious about competing with Apple and Samsung at the high end of the market, and they had a pair of phones that could achieve so.

Google must now capitalise on the interest the Pixel series has generated and ensure that the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are among the top smartphones of 2022. Don’t forget about the Google Pixel 6a, which goes on sale next month.

There is a lot of fierce competition out there that the 2022 Pixel devices will have to contend with, including the iPhone 14 that will be released before the year is through and the Galaxy S23 that will debut early in 2023.

More of the same is required for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7: a potent CPU, outstanding cameras, a premium design, and an Android-optimized software experience (the new phones should come with Android 13 on board). Better still if Google can reach a pricing threshold that is even more affordable.

The timing to purchase a Google Pixel 6 has never been worse.
