The Google Pixel 7 series will soon be available in India. On October 6, the new lineup, which includes the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, is anticipated to appear. However, the standard mode’s price has been leaked ahead of the formal introduction. It looks like Google won’t alter the Pixel 7’s price.
Amazon has jumped the gun on the Pixel 7 series and has listed (now removed) the Pixel 7 device on its website at a $599 price tag. According to the claimed ad, the smartphone’s basic 128GB model costs $599, or around Rs 50,000.

Additionally, the ad lists October 13 as the day of sale. The Google Pixel 7 series will reportedly feature the next-gen Tensor – Google’s in-house chipset. The alleged Amazon listing highlights the same but does not specify the exact moniker of the chipset.
Other than the pricing, the specs of the devices also appear to be quite similar to the last gen devices with a few improvements here and there.
Given that the Pixel 6 started at $599 last year as well, this suggests that Google is not altering the pricing of the smartphone this year (at least, not for the Pixel 7). It will be interesting to see how the phone will be priced in India.
Google’s last few Pixel phones were priced higher in India than the global variants. Given that the Pixel 6a launched for Rs 43,999, the situation may repeat again this year. However, as it is the first Google flagship phone to be released in India in a while, the Pixel 7 will excite many Android enthusiasts.
