Today, an eBay auction appeared for someone selling what seems to be a Pixel 7 prototype. The listing was pulled down shortly after this item was published, about 1:30 p.m. ET.
Google Pixel 7 prototype
The gadget is seen in its black “Obsidian” version, which has a glossy glass back and the new metal camera bar that Google previously showed. The gadget also includes a logo that is similar to previous Google prototypes but has been modified.
Because Google has previously shown the Pixel 7 design, this eBay auction doesn’t reveal much new information, though it does confirm that the Pixel 7 will ditch the matte black frame of the Pixel 6 in favour of a textured metal frame. The mmWave antenna window, which was previously seen in CAD leaks, is also visible.
We can also see the Pixel 7 Pro in the mirror, with its unique camera bar snapping shots of this phone, which is a little amusing.
The description went on to say that the phone already had Android 13 installed and that “pixel applications were in the development stage.”
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be available this autumn, according to Google. A second-generation Tensor chipset will be included in the Pixel 7 specifications. This new design will be available in the “Obsidian” colour seen below, as well as “Lemongrass” and “Snow.”
