The Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro have now been approved by the FCC, after yesterday’s release of a new Nest WiFi that supports Wi-Fi 6E.
There are four separate listings, but only two of them contain two model numbers with the same FCC ID, while the other two are single entries. As was the case with the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, the variant for Japan is most likely the second model in each pairing.
In the event that there are two phones, we believe the Pixel 7 Pro is GP4BC with only Sub-6 connection and GE2AE (which also has GFE4J in the FCC listing of the e-label) with mmWave. Ultra-wide band (UWB) is advertised in these two ads, with Google saving that functionality for the Pro phone for one more year. As of right now, Google uses UWB for Nearby Share and later digital car keys to provide precise range and spatial orientation.
While GQML3 has mmWave, the Pixel 7 is GVU6C (and G03Z5) with Sub-6.
While having two mmWave models for the larger phone makes sense, having two Sub-6 Pixel 7 devices is a bit unexpected.
Google unveiled the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro for the first time at I/O 2022 in May. Although there is an aluminum camera bar with circular and pill-shaped cutouts, the overall design is similar to that of last year’s series. The current layout, in which everything is covered in glass, gets replaced by this one.
The smaller phone will come in Lemongrass and Hazel colors, while the larger model will only be available in Obsidian and Snow. A second-generation Google Tensor chip is the major specification that has been formally confirmed.
Since then, we’ve reported that the smaller Pixel 7 will also support 4K selfie video recording, and it appears that the 7 Pro will come with a new telephoto lens made by Samsung.
