October 6th is rapidly approaching and on that date, Google will unveil the Pixel 7, Pixel 7 Pro, the Pixel Watch, and a couple of Nest products. There is also a rumor making the rounds that Google will also give previews of next year’s Pixel Tablet and the foldable Pixel Notepad. For Pixel fans looking to push back at their friends who use the Apple ecosystem, these are exciting times indeed.
Google promotes its new phones and smartwatch by running this ad on YouTube
The ad, which runs for 30 seconds, is called “Get Ready for Google Pixel 7: A Phone That Gives You More.” According to the video, the Pixel 7 series cameras will give you more detail, more focus, more magic (as in Magic Eraser, the feature that removes unwanted distractions from a photograph), and more Wow! We then get to see the Pixel Watch showing Google Maps navigation (don’t blink or you will miss it).
- Face Unlock.
- Improved modem.
- Longer-lasting battery.
- Faster fast charging.
- Ultrasonic under-display fingerprint sensor.
Pricing for the Pixel 7 line is expected to remain the same as the launch day prices for the Pixel 6 series
We expect pricing for the Pixel 7 series to remain the same with the basic model priced starting at $599, and the Pro model priced at $899 and up. Reportedly, the Pixel 7 will be available with 128GB and 256GB of storage. The Pixel 7 Pro will be available with 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage. That’s the same as last year.
The Pixel Watch could be equipped with as much as 2GB of RAM as well as 32GB of native storage. A 300mAh battery is expected allowing it to run for a full day on a single charge. The knee-jerk reaction will be to compare it to the Apple Watch.
