One of the few remaining mysteries about the Google Pixel 7 lineup may have just been discovered, and it''s good news indeed.
Google is assuming the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro versions will be identical to those seen during the Pixel 6 lineup, according to a Twitter leaker. At a time when prices of other goods have increased, it sounds like Apple is stepping up its lead in the iPhone 14 and holding the line on pricing for its new flagships.
According to leaker Artem Russakovskii (opens in a new tab) says the Pixel 7 will cost $599, while the Pixel 7 Pro will cost $899. Like the Pixel 7''s predecessors, these prices would undermine Google''s primary smartphone competitors, as the iPhone 14 and Samsung Galaxy S22 both start at $799. More advanced phones from Apple and Samsung start at $999, and go up from there.

Preorders for the new Pixel phones will begin on October 6, the same day Google is hosting a hardware event where the Pixel 7 will debut. Russakovskii reports that phones are scheduled to hit stores a week later on October 13, but acknowledges that some speculates the actual Pixel 7 ship date will be pushed back to October 18.
Since Google gave us our first look at the Pixel 7 phones back in May, prices have been one of the big questions marks. Besides, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are going to feature a new Tensor processor and that they''ll include a modified version of the camera bar, which Google ascribed to its Pixel 6.
Other details about the phones have come from speculation. Cameras are unlikely to alter from the Pixel 6 setup, which included a 50MP main shooter, a 12MP ultrawide camera, and a 48MP telephoto lens. The Pixel 7 Pro looks to be slightly more compact than the Pixel 6, while the Pixel 7 Pro is also expected to have a similar size.
In two weeks when Google''s October 6 event takes place, we''ll discover how the Pixel 7 Pro looks for certain and how much it officially costs.
