The 44-second video continues so we can see the Google logo as the device boots up and then the Pixel setup screen appears. The clip doesn’t go beyond that, so we don’t take a look at the Android 13 software on board.
what do we know so far
It’s an unboxing clip that Pixel fans will definitely want to check out, but it’s not particularly enlightening in telling us more about the phone we didn’t know before – Google has already shown the phone’s design, after all.
Being able to see the real device in the real world makes a difference. The Google Pixel 7 Pro is expected to match the Google Pixel 6 Pro in terms of physical size, with a 6.71-inch display at the front. Like its predecessor, the Pixel 7 Pro will also have a triple-lens rear camera setup.

Analysis: It’s Google vs Apple, Again
There’s some debate over when exactly the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will have a full and proper launch: earlier Pixels are usually released in October, but rumor has it that Google will release the 2022 models worldwide in September. .

It looks like this year Apple is saving a lot of the major upgrades for the Pro models: they’ve been hinted at for faster processors and some major design tweaks in addition to the usual extra camera features.
While we’d say the Google Pixel series is catching up to Apple’s iPhone in terms of hardware and software quality, there’s still some way to go – and so it’ll be intriguing to see what the two companies have to show in the next month or two.
