Speculations are rife as regards when Google will launch the much awaited all-new Pixel 7 models.
Well, it is worthy of note that google have a habit of releasing latest Pixel models every October.
This is because, the company registers increased preorders and with Google shipping the new handsets to early adopters in the weeks after that. But Pixel phones leak online many months before sales start. The same goes for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
According to reports, the 2022 Pixels leaked well before the event in mid-May. While the design and specs leaks were not surprising, the online sale of Pixel 7 prototypes certainly was.
A buyer revealed in early June they were able to purchase a Pixel 7 Pro online from Facebook Marketplace. They used the device for a few weeks before Google wiped the handset remotely. All this happened a few days after Pixel 7 units appeared to be on sale on eBay.
These independent and unofficial Pixel 7 sales indicated that someone had access to early Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro prototypes that they could sell online.
A month later and Google’s upcoming Pixels are still available online.
The new Pixel 7 Pro sale story is similar to the last one. A person got a Pixel 7 Pro from Facebook Marketplace, although they thought they were buying a Pixel 6 Pro unit. After two months of waiting, the handset arrived, surprising the buyer. It was a brand new Pixel 7 Pro, which isn’t available for sale from Google.
A number of persons are buying the device online. As show below, images show that the Pixel 7 Pro came in a prototype case that hid most of the phone’s design elements.
