New unofficial renders of the upcoming Pixel 7 have been released, providing another look at what could be Google’s next premium smartphone. Renders of the Pixel 7 first surfaced last month courtesy of Steve Hemmerstoffer, a.k.a. OneLeaks. The renders suggested that Google might make only minor modifications to the general Pixel 6 design with its next-gen phones. The latest renders now seemingly reiterate the same theme, with a similar look to the previous renders.
A number of leaks over the past few weeks have seemingly revealed other key information about the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro including the phone’s camera specs and display-related details. Most importantly, info about the second-gen Tensor chip that might be an upgrade in terms of speed and efficiency over its predecessor. While the latest leak doesn’t reveal anything new about the Pixel 7’s specs or hardware, it does seem to show the phone’s design in all its glory.

The latest Pixel 7 renders were created by 3D artist Parvez Khan for the Technizo Concept YouTube channel and shared by LetsGoDigital. The renders look strikingly similar to the design of the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, including the curved-glass display upfront with a centered punch-hole at the top. Earlier leaks suggested that the display size might increase from 6.7 inches to 6.8, although that’s yet to be confirmed. At the back, the device will still retain the Pixel 6’s horizontal camera ‘visor’ that stretches from one side to the other. The actual camera cutouts, however, will be slightly different. The triple-camera array will apparently be placed in two distinct cutouts, including a rounded one that will likely house the main sensor, and an oblong (pill-shaped) one for the secondary and tertiary sensors.

If the design holds up, the camera cutouts are going to be the only way to tell the Pixel 7 from its predecessor at a glance. They will still share the horizontal housing as part of a dual-tone design element, but the Pixel 6 has separate cutouts for each sensor instead of an oblong cutout that houses two of the sensors together. There are eye-catching clear-glass panels over the cameras, the flash is on one side of the horizontal camera housing, and Google’s ‘G’ logo is emblazoned at the center of the back panel. Of course, these are unofficial renders and based on very early information.
Previous Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro leaks suggested that the two phones are codenamed ‘Cheetah’ and ‘Panther,’ respectively, and will be powered by the GS201 Tensor chipset. In terms of the cameras, the main image sensor in the Pixel 7 will reportedly be a 50-megapixel unit, while the front-facing selfie camera will reportedly be an 8-megapixel solution. Google will also apparently offer higher storage options with the next-gen Pixel by including a 512GB model alongside the 128GB and 256GB variants the company offers with the Pixel 6 series. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will also almost certainly be the first smartphones to come loaded with Android 13.
