Pixel 7 Pro design and details leaked after vendor accidentally sent device to human instead of Pixel 6 Pro

The launch of the Google Pixel 7 series was teased during Google I/O 2022. The company has confirmed that the launch of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will take place in the fall. During I/O 2022, Google released a teaser of the Pixel 7 series, giving us a look at the rear panel. We’re still a few months away from the official launch, but it looks like the Pixel 7 series can’t help but get on the leak bandwagon.

A leaked prototype of the Pixel 7 Pro has surfaced online. A Twitter user revealed that his friend ordered the Pixel 6 Pro currently available on Facebook Marketplace. After waiting almost two months, the user got his hands on the device, only to find out that it is the unreleased Pixel 7 Pro.

The images reveal that the Pixel 7 Pro is wrapped in a prototype case that hides most of the design elements, but the user posted another image of the phone without the cover showing the full back panel. The images also reveal the device’s codename (Cheetah) and Android 13 (Tiramisu).

The friend who got the device suspects that the seller could be an OEM that supplies the Pixel 7 series. While the story of the seller accidentally shipping a prototype of the unreleased Pixel 7 Pro sounds too good to be true, one cannot ignore the fact that Google is struggling to stop Pixel 7 leaks. It did enough by sending a remote wipe command and erasing the Android 13 update from the phone, which is now stuck in a bootloader.

Google Pixel 7 Pro specs

Most of the specs of the Pro variant have been leaked online. Google has confirmed that the 7 Pro will have a triple camera setup on the back. It is rumored to feature a 50 MP main camera, a 12 MP ultra wide camera and a 48 MP telephoto camera.

The device will come with a new Tensor chip under the hood. Details on the new chip will be announced at the Pixel 7 launch event in the fall. The device is expected to pack up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

There will be a 6.7-inch Full HD+ display with support for a 120Hz refresh rate display. The OLED display will have a punch-hole cutout in the top center for the front camera. The Pixel 7 series will run Android 13 out of the box.
