Now, thanks to a leak on Twitter, pricing for the Pixel range has been released – and it's bad news for other flagship's, like the iPhone 14.
Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro pricing
He goes on to mention gift card deals at Target, where a $100 gift card is offered with purchase of the Pixel 7 and a $200 gift card is offered with the Pixel 7 Pro. Russakovskii is less certain over the terms of these offers, however.
The similarity between the leaked pricing and last years models would suggest that the next generation of Pixel phones won't see any price increase.
This may be wishful thinking, though. The release of the Apple iPhone saw prices increase across the board, with more substantial increases in certain regions. There is every possibility that Google will keep the Pixel price consistent in the US, while other regions see a bump.
Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro features
We already know some features for the new Pixel range. Each will launch in three colours, with the Pixel 7 in Obsidian, Snow and Lemongrass, and the Pixel 7 Pro in Obsidian, Snow and Hazel.
The devices will be powered by Google's next-gen Tensor chip, the Tensor G2. Little is known about the G2, but Google say it "brings even more helpful, personalized features for photos, videos, security, and speech recognition."
Rumours of a boost to the internal storage have been floating around too, though these are unconfirmed.
