There presentation of Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro has just ended, and the new Google smartphones are already preparing to arrive in Italy. Same price last year, almost same design, but internally the news are manyboth software and hardware, for a user experience that will not be radically different, but certainly better.

The new Pixel 7 is more compact than the previous model, it is made with Gorilla Glass Victus both front and back, and with a profile in matt aluminum.

It is available in three colors: ice white, obsidian black and the new cedar green, its exclusive color.

Thanks to the main high-resolution sensor, the Super Res Zoom (i.e. the digital zoom improved by Google algorithms) reaches up to 8xmoreover this time even the videos (always up to 4K @ 60fps) are the object of particular attention, with the introduction of support 10-bit HDR, to record brighter movies with higher contrast and a wider color gamut; plus, thanks to the new function cinematic blur you can, even in videos, have that depth of field effect already so appreciated in photos; all thanks to the new Tensor G2.

Also, in Google Photos, the option comes Sharp photowhich promises to bring back into focus even old blurry photos, thanks to the magic of machine learning (obviously within a certain blur limit, as the example below shows).

Still talking about algorithms, those of Real Tone, the function dedicated to enhancing all skin types, have been trained with more than 10,000 additional portraits of people of color, for even more reliable results. Also, and this may be a little game changer for photos in the dark, the mode Night photo now only requires half the exposure time previous, allowing you to avoid the blur much more easily.

Staying on the subject of sharpness, there is also it works Call Nitidawhich minimizes ambient sounds such as wind and traffic, while improving the interlocutor’s voice, so that calls are always clear, even in difficult situations.

Then comes the long-awaited face unlock, which joins the already proven fingerprint reader under the display. However, let’s clarify that it is not a 3D release, through dedicated hardware, but that what is used is only the front camera, combined with Google’s face recognition algorithms.

It is therefore not a secure method like biometric authentication.

On the hardware front, the remarkable is also worth noting display brightness increase (+ 25%), and the fact that the front camera is the same as the Pro model, which is not true in the Pixel 6 series.

There is also a novelty intended for visually impaired: guided framing. It is a precise audio guide, with also high-contrast visual animations and tactile feedback, which helps to capture a good portrait of yourself, even in case of some visual defect.

Take the good things already said about Pixel 7 and translate it to Pixel 7 Pro, which not only has a larger and higher resolution display (also brighter), and a greater amount of RAM, but is enriched with an extra camera : one 5x periscope zoomwhich this year Google promises to exploit very well.

At a constructive level there are few differences, with a substantially identical design between the two, distinguished only by the polished aluminum of the 7 Pro, against the opaque one of the 7 base. The colors are also mostly the same: ice white and obsidian black are the same, while the new is only available on Pixel 7 Pro Grey green, which you can find illustrated in the gallery below. But let’s get to the main dish: the photographic sector.

Contrary to what happened with the previous model, and even in the competition, the Pixel 7 Pro’s telephoto lens also comes into play before reaching its focal length. If you are capturing a photo, for example at 4.5x, the data from the main and zoom sensors are combined to ensure the best possible image quality and a consistent pinch to zoom experience.

After all, up to 2x, you will use the full width of the main sensor to obtain a lossless enlargement; from then on both sensors will come into play, even going beyond 5x, up to a maximum zoom of 30xwhich Google ensures is still rich in detail and sharp, with optical quality similar to that of a dedicated telephoto lens up to 10x.

And even during the most extreme zooms, to ensure videos centered on the subject, there is one special stabilization of the viewfinder that allows you to easily follow even moving subjects.

Another novelty: the macro shots. The Pixel 7 Pro’s wide-angle lens has autofocus, which can focus up to a distance of three centimeters, with all the quality of Google’s HDR +. Be careful because this option is only present on Pixel 7 Pro, because the two wide-angle lenses are not identical.

Video, zoom, and macros: Google wants to catch up in one fell swoop in all those aspects where the competition did best. Whether or not it is successful, we will tell you only in the Pixel 7 Pro review.

The actual exit on the market will take place on October 13, so in just a week. The cover Made by Googlewhich you can find illustrated in the galleries above.

Finally, we point out that by purchasing smartphones by December 15, 2023 you will have three months of YouTube Premium and Google One for free: a small taste, hoping that you want to subscribe later.
