Google has launched the Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Pro at their Made By Google event, along with a hoard of new devices. The Pixel 7 series is powered by the new Tensor G2 SoC, which has been made using the 4nm process.
The Pixel 7 features a 50-megapixel dual rear camera setup, while the Pixel 7 Pro is equipped with a triple camera setup that also includes a 48-megapixel telephoto lens. Both phones are equipped with a 10.8-megapixel selfie camera and have an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.
One of the key highlights from the launch is the fact that Google has announced a bunch of new camera features for the Pixel 7 series. Both the devices in the Pixel 7 series now support a new ‘Cinematic Blur’ feature that provides a dramatic blur effect when recording videos, much like Apple’s Cinematic Mode.
The top-tier Pixel 7 Pro will also have a ‘Macro Focus’ feature that allows users to click photos of objects up to 3cm away with HDR+ photo quality. But the best feature that the photography department gets, is the ‘Photo Unblur’ feature on Google Photos, which uses machine learning to improve old, or blurry pictures.
We take a look at the features, pricing and availability of the Pixel 7 series.
