Google is promoting its Pixel 7 launch event just weeks away. While its next-gen phones aren’t shocking — Google unveiled both at I/O in May — they’re shaping up to be intriguing advancements over last year’s Pixel 6, starting with the new Tensor G2 chipset. Google Japan is rerunning one of its biggest promotions from last year to mark the debut.
Mishaal Rahman observed Google’s Pixel-branded chips. All four tastes are now listed online and available in Japan through the official storefront. Each box of chips is labelled “Google Original Chips” after Tensor processors. They come in four Pixel 7-inspired flavors:
- Snow Cheese
- Hazel Onion
- Salty Lemon
- Obsidian Pepper
We know a lot about the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, including their colours. Snow, Obsidian, and Lemongrass are available for the Pixel 7 and Hazel with a gold visor for the Pixel 7 Pro.
We expect the Pixel 7 to be thinner and include an under-display camera than the Pixel 6. According to display analyst Ross Young, the Pixel 7 display will shrink from 6.4 inches to 6.3 inches, while the Pixel 7 Pro will stay at 6.7 inches. That’s wonderful news for Pixel 6a fans.
The second-generation Tensor chip, Tensor G2, should offer improved processing capability and power efficiency. Google promises “useful, tailored features for images, videos, security, and speech recognition.”
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will launch on October 6 at the next Made by Google event. I’ll consider Hazel based on “Hazel Onion” potato chip taste.
