Google Pixel 7 may miss out on new cameras — No new camera


It’s possible that the Google Pixel 7 may use the same same cameras as the Pixel 6 series, which would be a letdown.

According to leaker Yogesh Brar’s tweet, the Pixel 7’s cameras will get minor software improvements, but the big improvements will be made to the sensors.

There is an entirely new telephoto camera in the Pixel 6 Pro, which replaces every sensor in its predecessor and adds a whole new telephoto lens. However, in light of this, it would be reasonable to expect Google to go with the same camera design this time around.


The camera hardware of several other phone manufacturers is only slightly updated year-to-year. Even though the primary camera on the Galaxy S22 has been upgraded to a 50MP sensor from the 12MP sensor on the Galaxy S21, all other sensors stay the same, even on the top-of-the-line Galaxy S22 Ultra model.

It’s also worth noting that even with tangible goods like the Pixel, Google continues to be a software-focused firm. Google’s Pixel 7 will still seem like an upgrade over the Pixel 6 if enough new features and enhancements are added to the camera. If that’s the case, you’ll have to wait for the review to find out.


So far, speculations suggest a few differences between the Pixel 7 and its predecessor, the Pixel 6. This year’s Pixel 7 will include an upgraded Google Tensor processor, a reduction in screen size (from 6.4 inches to 6.3 inches), and an updated camera bar design.

The Pixel 6’s low spec level in comparison to other phones seems to be unaddressed by these updates. It is possible that the new processor will be more efficient than the old one, which might improve the battery life of both Pixel 6 variants.

A year after the Pixel 6, we’re expecting the Pixel 7 to arrive sometime in October. If you’re hoping for an announcement of a new Google product sooner rather than later, the Pixel 6a might arrive as early as May.
