We all know that Google will finally reveal all the information about the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro on October 6, when the two new Android high-end smartphones are also most likely to be made available for pre-order. However, even though a very reliable source informed us of the retail price less than a week ago, we couldn’t be sure those figures were accurate.
It’s undoubtedly wonderful news that we can now be a little bit more assured that Google’s upcoming innovations will begin with the same tags as their predecessors because of Amazon (yes, that Amazon). After all, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were two of the most reasonably priced premium smartphones introduced in 2021, and their prices dropped even more for extended periods of time this year.
Amazon is preparing to charge six dollars for an unlocked Google Pixel 7 with 128 gigs of internal storage space, which almost certainly means that other major retailers will follow suit. This information comes from an official-looking product listing that appeared to go live prematurely at some point in the last 24 hours and predictably disappeared shortly thereafter. That price will be applied by US merchants to that specific gadget as well.
With the exception of the $100 gift card story, which may or may not hold true for Amazon as well, this is exactly what was predicted for Target last week.

It’s also plausible that such an initial deal was not posted to Amazon’s system at the time of the public gaffe as this was an early listing that wasn’t intended to be seen by potential customers just yet. Alternatively, the deal (if real) could only be seen in a future listing that is more in-depth.
In any case, the good news is that the Pixel 7 won’t likely cost more than the Pixel 6 from a year ago, which makes sense considering all the rumours linking the two devices.
The Pixel 7 is almost certain to bring no (apparent) changes to the table compared to the Pixel 6 aside from a front-facing camera taken from the Pixel 6 Pro (and 7 Pro) and a second-generation in-house Tensor processor that is anticipated to offer a relatively small performance upgrade over its forerunner.
What date will the Pixel 7 debut?
The same poorly uploaded Amazon product listing claims that October 13 will be the big day, which is almost a week earlier than some previous forecasts made by a number of usually trusted leakers and tipsters.
This feels like an excellent turnaround for Google and only serves to further demonstrate that the company is growing more and more serious about challenging Apple and Samsung’s (US) smartphone market supremacy… eventually. An October 13 release (both for the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, presumably) would come exactly one week after next Thursday’s formal announcement and rumoured pre-order start.
Even by point, it appears that Amazon was also nice enough to share information that Google had previously kept highly secret. One of the first (semi) official pictures to reveal the front of the 6.3-inch Pixel 7 in addition to its back is the high-resolution image at the top of our story.
For marketing purposes, the colour seen above is called “Obsidian,” but we already know that the Pixel 7 will also have “Hazel” and “Snow” paint treatments, with the Pixel 7 Pro expected to include three additional colours of its own (namely, Obsidian, Snow, and Lemongrass).
In case you were wondering, the 6.7-inch Pixel 7 Pro should cost $899 in the United States. The 256GB storage options for the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are probably going to cost $699 and $999, respectively, while the existence of 512 gig devices is still very much in doubt.
