Notable YouTuber Jon Prosser claims that both the Google Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Pro will be on sale on october 13 (opens in new tab)according to what he claims are “very reputable sources”.
our friends in Android Authority (opens in new tab) Please note that Prosser has successfully predicted Pixel release dates in the past, so we can take this on good authority.
Prosser also states that there will be an event a week before the on-sale date, on Thursday, October 6th, and that Google will begin pre-orders for the phones on that day. Prosser has no new pricing or spec information for the phones, only saying they will be “very reminiscent” of last year’s flagship handsets.
While we still take these dates with a pinch of salt, this all lines up with our best estimates. Almost all previous Pixel phones have followed this pattern: they will go on sale in October following an announcement event a week earlier.
The Pixel 5 was announced on the last day of September, but with technology restrictions around the world, we expect phone launches to arrive later this year, not sooner.
We’re excited to see the Google Pixel 7 – especially after the latest model, the Google Pixel 6a – disappointed us a little and made us catch up with our elders Pixel 6 Devicesbetween one number of alternatives.
Review: Which phone does Google want us to buy?
The launch of the Google Pixel 7 was… counter-intuitive, to say the least. Google announced that phones were making a comeback in May at its annual Google I/O developer conference. The Pixel 6 family was fairly new, but it wasn’t a surprise to hear about the mid-year Pixel 6a, as the a-series Pixel phones are traditionally more affordable mid-year handsets that offer some core Pixel features for less.
Rather than just teasing the Pixel 6a – a phone that went on sale recently – Google went one step further and announced the Pixel 7 family as well. Of course, it came as no surprise that Google was working on a Pixel 7, but this announcement broke a fundamental consumer electronics rule: no announce the next generation (opens in new tab) of a particular product while your customers are still excited about (and more importantly, still happily buying) the current one.
