The Pixel 7 Pro, which Google had planned to release in October, will come pre-loaded with Android 13, making it the industry’s first premium flagship to boot with Android 13.
The Pixel 7 Pro retail edition was leaked ahead of its release, and someone unboxed it in Bangladesh to activate it, which suggests Google is doing a poor job of secrecy.
Compared to its predecessor, the Pixel 7 Pro’s metal center frame and the metal cover on the back of the camera area are integrated, making it more difficult to process and highly recognizable.
It is equipped with three cameras — master camera, ultra wide angle and latent telephoto lens — which support OIS optical stabilization. The camera is slightly raised. The thickness of the phone is 11.2mm with the camera and 8.7mm without the camera.
At its core, the Google Pixel 7 Pro will have a 2K mid-depth curved screen, a second-generation Tensor chip made by Google, and Android 13.
This time on Android 13, non-Google apps are free to match the current theme and color, making the Material the user designed more cohesive across the smartphone.
For privacy reasons, Google has added more elaborate permission Settings, allowing users to share only certain photos and videos, rather than granting full access to the media library.
In addition, Android 13 will automatically clear the clipboard history after a certain period of time, and users must grant apps the right to send notifications, rather than turning them on by default.
