Google Pixel 7 Pro prototype surfaced online in live image


After a few days on eBay and Facebook Marketplace, a Google Pixel 7 prototype appeared, complete with live photos of the device. It wasn’t long before its larger sibling was exposed to the same treatment. Even though no prototype is being sold this time, live photographs of it have been released anyway.

With a redesigned metal camera visor that wraps around both sides and an extra camera, there is a noticeable difference in design between the Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Pro. Because of the visor’s resemblance to the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, it’s easy to identify as a Google phone at first glance. But if you look closely, you’ll see some subtle design differences. Front-facing Pixel 7 Pro’s screen appears to be curved similarly to the Pixel 6XL’s, suggesting that it is the same display.

Cubot Cheetah 2 is listed in the Device Info, although we’re not sure why. Aside from the rumoured codename of Cheetah, Cubot is also a Chinese phone manufacturer. Maybe this Pixel’s production has something to do with it? Cubot Cheetah 2 was a smartphone made by the Chinese company Cubot many years ago, however this is not it.


That will have to wait for another time. There is a possibility that the Pixel 7 Pro prototype that was put up for sale earlier this week has the same logo on the rear as the current Pixel 7 model, which is usual practise for Google to hide the true nature of the gadget. That said, it’s difficult to do in practise because the camera visor is such a novel design component in today’s world.

At this rate of leaks, we’ll know a lot about the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro before they’re officially announced in the fall (probably in October).
