Listing removed by Google sheds new light on dual eSIM and Face Unlock for Pixel 7 line
Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro listings indicate that they will have some sort of facial recognition feature
The Google Pixel 7 (panther) and Google Pixel 7 Pro (cheetah) are now listed on the Google Play Console. There’s nothing really interesting here, though the Console lists them as still having last year’s Google Tensor. pic.twitter.com/LlunfmW7Ek

While the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL used the same components as Apple’s True Depth Camera to deliver Face Unlock in 2019, the new handsets do not appear to have a flood illuminator, a dot projector, and an IR camera. Still, the device could use the front-facing camera’s image sensor (as long as it supports Dual Pixel Auto-Focus like the one on the Pixel 6 Pro does) to create the depth maps required for a secure facial recognition system.
Other tidbits of information that Rahman picked up from the Google Play Console listings reveal some specs that have already been leaked including 8GB of memory and a 1080 x 2400 resolution for the Pixel 7 and 12GB of memory along with a screen resolution of 1440 x 3120 for the Pixel 7 Pro.
Both models will be powered by the Google Tensor 2 chipset, the sequel to the first Google-designed chipset used with last year’s phones. The Applications Processor will feature a pair of ARM Cortex-X1 cores running at a clock speed of 2.8GHz, a pair of ARM Cortex-A76 cores running at a clock speed of 2.25GHz, and four ARM Cortex-A55 cores running at a clock speed of 1.8GHz.
Google’s new devices will be introduced October 6th at 10 am Eastern Time
For example, during the Google I/O developer conference last May, the company flashed a photo of the new phones, the Pixel Watch, and briefly discussed the Pixel Tablet. Back in 2019, Google released videos showing the Pixel 4 series in action before the device was even made official. This might take the excitement out of the unveiling event, but it also helps to keep Google’s new products in the limelight creating a buzz from consumers even before the devices greet the light of day.
