Pixel 7 spec sheet mentions 5x optical zoom, face unlock, more

The Pixel 7 series is expected to have a fairly light upgrade over the previous generation, but a new spec sheet suggests the camera could bring a bit more of an upgrade than previously expected.

This latest Pixel 7 leak claims to show a spec sheet and comparison page for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, courtesy of a mobile carrier in Taiwan. The images were shared for the first time on the Google News Telegram channel, and it is stated that they have since been removed (the operator in question was not mentioned by name).

We’d recommend taking this with a light grain of salt given the nature of the leak, but there are no obvious red flags here that we can see.

That said, what can we potentially learn from this new Pixel 7 series spec sheet?

As we’ve known for months, this spec sheet reiterates the 6.7-inch and 6.3-inch displays of the PIxel 7 Pro and Pixel 7, respectively, with their QHD 120Hz and FHD 90Hz panels. The phones are further mentioned to have 12GB RAM and 8GB RAM respectively, with both offering 128GB and 256GB models with Tensor G2 under the hood, IP68 water resistance, and both wired and wireless charging.

But this spec sheet seems to confirm some other previously rumored details. First of all, support for face unlock is explicitly mentioned alongside fingerprint unlock. This would confirm what we have been reports for several monthsas much as some other recent leaks. Apparently, the use of a 10.8MP camera used for the front sensor on both phones will be what will help this feature finally become a reality.

It is perhaps the camera section that is the most intriguing here.

According to this Pixel 7 spec sheet, the smaller Pixel 7 will have almost the same camera specs as the previous model, with a 50MP primary sensor, 12MP ultra-wide, and no telephoto lens on the back. Then there would be the aforementioned 10.8MP camera on the front for selfies and face unlock.

The Pixel 7 Pro, meanwhile, would support the same 50MP primary, 12MP ultra-wide and 10.8MP front-facing cameras, while also adding a 48MP telephoto lens to the mix. This is the same resolution as the Pixel 6 Pro, but this spec sheet claims that the Pixel 7 Pro will be upgraded from a 4x to 5x telephoto lens. This would increase optical zoom performance from a distance, as well as boost hybrid (digital + optical) zoom to a maximum of 30x, up from 20x on the Pixel 6 Pro.

Finally, the other camera specs we know about here include “Movie Motion Blur” and “Macro Focus,” with the latter being exclusive to the Pixel 7 Pro. There’s not much to say about what these features might be, but if we had to guess, “Movie Motion Blur” sounds a lot like it would replicate Apple’s “Cinema Mode” on iPhones, while “Macro Focus” could perhaps use the telephoto as a macro lens, in some way, given that the feature is only available on the device. Google Pro level.
