What's new in Google Pixel 7 Pro? Features

Google Pixel 7 and the Google Pixel 7 Pro will be released in October 2022 and the official trailer for the phone has been leaked. The video clip shows the official spec sheet of the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, confirms some new features Google is bringing to the phones.


Starting with the zoom, the Pixel 6 Pro has a 4x optical zoom that can do 20x hybrid zoom but Google has upgraded that to 5x optical and 30x hybrid on the new Pixel 7 Pro.


Another new feature of the camera is the Cinematic Mode which basically blurs the background in video keeping the subject in focus. It's available on both the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro and Google is calling it the Cinematic blur.


Google is also showing the Extreme Battery Saver which it says will allow you to use your device for up to 72 hours. But it will basically cripple the handset shutting down all the background apps and games.

Interestingly, Google is also bringing back the face unlock biometric option. Since the Pixel 7 lineup doesn't have separate face ID sensors, it’s possible that Google has improved the algorithms it uses for software-based face recognition that they have decided to enable the biometric option on the new phones. We'll have to wait and see how secure is this going to be compared to other existing Face ID sensors. Either way, it's good news that Google is bringing face unlock back considering the fingerprint scanner on the Pixel 6 wasn't the best one out there.


The handset will also come with “Macro Focus” that will use the telephoto lens as a macro lens. This feature will be exclusive to the Pixel 7 Pro.


Users who get these handsets will also get 3 months of YouTube premium and 3 months of Google one cloud storage for free.


Now speaking of freebies Google is being really generous this time for people who will pre-order the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. According to Roland Quandt who has a good track record, the pre-order customers will get the new Pixel watch as a pre-order gift in some countries. And the Pixel Buds Pro in some other. The Buds Pro retails at $200 and the Pixel Watch will likely retail at $400. So getting the new Pixel device and one of the freebies could be the deal of the year, if Google plays its cards right.
