Google’s upcoming Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro have seemingly been listed on the Federal Communications Commission ahead of their official launch. The Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will be upgraded over the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro that were launched last year to critical acclaim and commercial success. The next-gen Pixel devices are expected to be unveiled in October, although Google is yet to announce the exact launch date. Google typically announces its Pixel smartphones in the first half of October. For example, last year, Google unveiled the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro on Oct. 19. Either way, the next-gen Pixel devices will likely debut in around two months or less.

Multiple leaks and rumors have revealed quite a few details about the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, and Google itself can be thanked for some of that information. The company has teased its upcoming devices multiple times over the past few months, revealing that a new Tensor chipset will power them. The Pixel 7 also recently appeared on eBay, indicating that it might have a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a centered punch hole, just like the Pixel 6. It might also ship with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Four new smartphone models have been listed on the FCC under model numbers GE2AE, GQML3, GP4BC and GVU6C. Believed to have been first spotted by MySmartPrice, the listings reveal that the phones support dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and multiple 5G bands, including N2, N5, N7, N12, N25, N30, N38, N41, N48, N66, N71 and N77. Unfortunately, the listings did not reveal anything else about the devices, meaning the rest of the hardware specs are yet to be confirmed.
Pixel 7 And 7 Pro Listed On FCC Website
It is worth noting that the listings only revealed the model numbers of the four devices and not their actual names. However, speculations suggest that they’re very likely the next-gen Pixel devices, given that the Pixel 6 first appeared on FCC as GR1YH, while the Pixel 6 Pro was listed with the model number GF5KQ. This suggests that at least two of the models listed on FCC could be Pixel 7 or 7 Pro units, while the other two could be variants or entirely different devices altogether.
The Pixel 7-series is expected to offer excellent photography options like the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. A massive leak last month revealed that both phones would sport Samsung’s 50-megapixel ISOCELL GN1 sensor as the primary camera and Sony’s 12-megapixel IMX381 sensor as the ultra-wide camera, like the Pixel 6 series. In addition, the Pixel 7 Pro will also sport a 48MP Samsung ISOCELL GM1 sensor for the telephoto camera that will be missing in the standard Pixel 7. In comparison, the Pixel 6 Pro comes with the 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor as the telephoto camera. On the front, both the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro will have an 11MP Samsung ISOCELL 3J1 sensor for selfies and video chats.
