Eagle-eyed PhoneArena readers might note that the render of the phone doesn’t include a punch-hole camera on the front, which could indicate an in-screen camera. Or, more likely, the artist hired by the case manufacturer to create the render didn’t include it. With complaints about the under-display fingerprint scanner, Google would likely want this done before moving to an under-display camera.
It’s time to grab Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro
Render of the Pixel 7 Pro included in a case render
Other than minor changes to the camera bar, the power and volume buttons will remain on the right side with the charging port on the bottom of the device. The lack of a fingerprint button on the back of the phone indicates that the under-screen fingerprint scanner will get another photo. There had been many complaints about the optical fingerprint reader on the current model, although software updates from Google have significantly improved the current capabilities of the biometric reader.
The Pixel 7 Pro should be presented next October
The Pixel 6 series hit shelves late last October after an October 17 unveiling. With that in mind, we should expect to see the Pixel 7 greet daylight in mid to late October and release a week or two later. First, we should see the mid-range Pixel 6a unveiled which could take place as early as next week when the Google I/O developer conference kicks off on Wednesday May 11; the online event will end on May 12.
