The recently released Google Pixel 7 Pro, Google hopes to continue its recent ascent in high-end smartphones. The Google Pixel 6 Pro’s incredible photographic skills are the first thing that spring to mind when you hear about it. With the new Google Pixel 7 Pro, which has a more potent camera and a price that is comparably lower than the best models from Apple and Samsung, nothing has changed in that regard.
The Pixel 7 Pro from Google is designed to deliver a lot more than the Pixel 6 Pro from the previous year. A more intelligent Tensor G2 processor was added by Google to the Google Pixel 7 Pro, but despite the advancements, the price was kept below $1,000. The telephoto lens has a longer 5x optical and 30x digital zoom inside the camera bar.
The Google Pixel 7 Pro’s software features as well as its battery life and quick charging capabilities have left us in awe, demonstrating that the standards it set a ityear earlier are still valid today. Contrary to popular belief, the Google Pixel 7 Pro’s design has undergone some recent alterations but still retains most of its previous appearance.
Google Pixel 7 Pro: Price in Nigeria and Release Date
When Google announced the new smartphone on October 6th along with its less expensive cousin, the Pixel 7, the rumors about the potential existence of a new Google Pixel 7 Pro were proven to be accurate. The rumors surrounding the likelihood of the new Pixel 7 Pro first surfaced in May. The two forerunner models, on the other hand, were subsequently introduced on October 13 and are now available for purchase in several areas.
The 128GB base storage model of the Google Pixel 7 Pro is priced at 658,000 ($899). Additionally, you can also purchase the higher 256GB and 512GB storage options available for 731,000 ($999) and 804,000 ($1099).
The Google Pixel 7 Pro’s superb design was established by its forerunner, which boasts a distinctive camera bar and a two-tone color finish on the back. Although the arrangement of the design differs significantly from other smartphones, particularly in terms of the camera module, we like the new standards that served as an inspiration for the creation of many modern smartphones.
The Google Pixel 7 Pro maintains the same striking visual aesthetic as its predecessor while also receiving some minor design updates. The camera bar is still in the same location as its predecessor, however the aluminum shell makes a visible difference in comparison to the glass case.
While the smartphone is available in a variety of colors, the well-shaped cutout for the sensors looks quite tidy and elegant. When combined with the Gold stainless steel frame, each color creates a highly appealing appearance that makes looking at the Google Pixel 7 Pro a delightful experience.
The front panel of the Google Pixel 7 Pro is made up of a 6.7-inch QLED display that is backed by an LTPO OLED panel and has a resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels. The enormous 6.7-inch display on Google’s newest flagship phone comes outfitted with a 120Hz refresh rate and a maximum brightness of 1500 nits, which is yet another incredible feat.
You’ll be thrilled to watch movies and play games on the display since it has rich colors, strong contrast, and excellent viewing angles. As you navigate over the screen, everything feels fluid and easygoing thanks to the QLED + LTPO OLED panel and 120Hz refresh rate.
The Pixel 7 Pro’s softly curved edges are now more comfortable to hold than on its predecessor, and a Corning Gorilla Glass is employed to guard the screen against scuffs. The display of Google’s smartphones has received a lot of attention, and it appears to be one of their selling features.
We last saw the face unlock feature on the Pixel 4; it’s interesting that they’ve opted to bring it back with the Pixel 7 Pro. Like on Apple and Samsung smartphones, the face unlock is responsive. To approve Google Pay transactions, open protected apps, and do other things, you may also utilize the under-display fingerprint scanner on the lower part of the screen.
The Pixel 7 Pro has received a lot of attention thanks to the enhancements Google made to the camera. The camera is not only just as good as its predecessor, but it also has the ability to take crisper pictures. These improvements mostly affect the telephoto lens, as the 4x zoom lens has been upgraded to a 5x zoom lens. Additionally, the Super Res Zoom on the 48MP telephoto camera has been increased from 20x to 30x.
The Google Pixel 7 Pro’s telephoto lens produces images that are astonishingly clear and well-detailed, but it will take a lot more improvements before it can match with Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 100x Space Zoom. Similar to Apple’s iPhone 14, Google was forced to maintain the same 50MP sensor on the main camera while introducing a new 2x digital zoom.
Similar to what we experienced with the Pixel 6 Pro, the main camera’s photos have an amazing quality. The colors, brightness, contrast, and saturation are carefully controlled to capture detailed photographs in all lighting situations. The three sensors on the Pixel 7 Pro work diligently under the direction of Google’s top-notch image processing software to produce gorgeous photographs.
The ultra-wide camera comes next, with an enhanced 125% field of view allowing you to capture tall structures and exceptionally wide panoramas in a single photo using the 12MP sensor. Both the back camera and the 10.8MP front-facing selfie camera can capture videos in 4K resolution.
Performance, Storage, and Software
The Tensor G2 processor of the second generation was used in the construction of the Google Pixel 7 Pro. The phone performs as smoothly as other phones in its sector overall. Thanks to the pure Android interface and the Al features made possible by the Tensor G2 processor, you’ll find the performance to be very reliable as you use the phone for your daily tasks.
You’ll receive the same 12GB RAM along with either 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of storage because Google made no changes to the phone’s storage unit. Due to the lack of a micro SD card slot, the option to increase the memory is, as usual, not offered.
Despite running on the Android 13 OS, the Google Pixel 7 Pro’s features aren’t significantly changed from those of its predecessor’s Android 12 OS. Using the photo Unblur tool in the Google Photo app, you can eliminate blurs and noise from your photos, one of the few capabilities that the Pixel 7 Pro has exclusively.
Google also developed the Magic Eraser, which allows you to remove undesirable subjects from your images. In addition to these capabilities, you will have the same customizability choices as Android OS, which is supported by three years of OS upgrades and five years of security updates.
Google Pixel 7 Pro: Battery Capacity and Fast Charge
Thanks to its 5000mAh battery, the Google Pixel 7 Pro has a longer battery life. The phone virtually lasted the entire day when we used it to conduct some heavy tasks like gaming, accessing numerous apps, or any other work that would demand the Tensor G2 processor’s full attention, which is amazing.
Additionally, quick charging has been boosted to 30W, meaning you won’t have to wait much longer to resume working on your Pixel 7 Pro. Unlike most modern Android phones, you will be able to experience 23W wireless charging as well as reverse wireless charging.
