On October 6, Google will unveil the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro to the public. Recent leaks indicate that they will not be a significant improvement over the Pixel 6 series, but we still expect them to be among the greatest Android phones. There are numerous minor things that Google appears to be working to enhance. The most recent data suggest that dual eSIM and face unlock functionality will be supported.
A listing for the Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Pro (the panther and the cheetah, respectively) appeared in the Google Play Console, as discovered by Android specialist Mishaal Rahman. In spite of the fact that the corporation has subsequently removed the records, Rahman was still able to glean some fascinating insights from the open data.
The two newest Pixels are eSIM MEP-compatible (short for Multiple Enabled Profiles). This allows them to have two eSIM profiles engaged at once, mimicking the dual SIM capabilities of earlier Pixels that used a combination of a single physical SIM card and a single eSIM profile to do this. Using MEP, the Pixel 7 series might eliminate the SIM card tray yet still enable dual SIMs. Although, whether Google will offer models without a tray is unknown. It could simply be a precursor to such a feature in a later release.
Both the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are listed as supporting “android.hardware.biometrics.face,” indicating that a biometric face unlocks feature is present. Since the Pixel 4 and 4 XL were the final Pixel phones to announce support for proper secure face unlocks, it is unclear how the devices would achieve this functionality.

Either Google has upgraded its algorithms for software-based face recognition or it has installed new hardware into the phones that enable it. Google also provides fingerprint-aided face recognition, which could make it easier to unlock the device with a fingerprint if the proper face is identified. Considering how unreliable and slow the fingerprint scanners on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are, it’s encouraging to see that Google is working on a solution.
Some previously unknown but crucial specifications are also verified by the listing. The Pixel 7 will include 8GB of RAM along with a 1080×2400 display at a pixel density of 420dpi. The Pixel 7 Pro will feature a 1440 x 3120 display with 560 PPI and 12 GB of RAM. Each device is powered by Google’s new Tensor G2 chipset, which has been proven to feature two enormous ARM Cortex-X1 cores running at 2800MHz, two enormous A76 cores running at 2250MHz, and four diminutive Cortex-A55 cores running at 1800MHz. While this is only a little improvement over the first-generation Tensor chip, we believe it will make it more resistant to overheating.
