In terms of what we know about Pixel 7, or at least think we do, we suspect a fall 2022 release date, similar pricing to the Google Pixel 6, better battery life, improved cameras, faster processors and a new design.
But there is still an awful lot that we don't know about the Pixel 7 and the Google Pixel 7 Pro, too.
But we might now be one step closer to knowing just what the flaghsip Pixel 7 Pro is going to deliver in terms of display to its owner, which will no doubt be a key consideration for those looking to upgrade from the Google Pixel 6 Pro.
This is because XDA's Mishaal Rahman reports (opens in new tab) that Android source code shows the Pixel 7 Pro will use Samsung's S6E3HC4 display panel, meaning upgrades to brightness in both normal and high brightness modes.
If the Pixel 7 Pro indeed uses Samsung's S6E3HC4 display panel, then that means it'll be brighter than the Pixel 6 Pro in both normal and high brightness mode.https://t.co/cb9WPJvVriH/T @dylan_raga https://t.co/p3NkMJ1x04 pic.twitter.com/TwRh6zIuFVJune 22, 2022
A brighter display is never a bad thing, especially if you want to use the Pixel 7 Pro in bright settings, such as the outdoors.
According to GSM Arena (opens in new tab), the Pixel 6 Pro scored 497 nits of maximum brightness using the manual slider (and 860 nits in Adaptive Brightness mode), meaning the Pixel 7 Pro could target something like a 600 nits peak, rising to 1,000 under certain scenarios.
Pretty exciting stuff, all things considered. Keep checking back to T3 for more updates on the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro as we get them.
