The Google Pixel 7 series – which includes the Pixel 7, and Pixel 7 Pro – have been spotted on the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) database, according to a report. It is believed that the company is preparing to launch the Pixel 7 series in the US on October 6. Ahead of the launch, two handsets spotted on the FCC database are listed to feature mmWave 5G connectivity, meanwhile, the other two are said to support sub-6GHz 5G. Considering that mmWave connectivity is not popular around the world, the two handsets listed could be US-specific models.
according to a report good By GSMArena, four Google smartphones – gp4bc, GVU6C, GE2AEAnd GQML3 – have surfaced on the FCC database. It is believed that these are Pixel 7 series variants. All these handsets are said to support Wi-Fi 6e, Bluetooth, NFC and wireless charging.
The GP4BC and GVU6C models are listed to support sub-6GHz 5G connectivity, while the GE2AE and GQML3 variants will support mmWave 5G connectivity. The latter two models are expected to be US-specific models as mmWave technology is not widely used outside the country. mmWave technology provides access to frequency bands above 24GHz.
Notably, the GP4BC and GE2AE models are listed to feature ultra-wideband (UWB) connectivity. To recall, the Pixel 6 Pro also included UWB while this technology was absent in the regular version. Therefore both these models can be Pixel 7 Pro variants.
Google will reportedly launch the Pixel 7 series in the US on October 6. The pre-orders are expected to start on the same day and the smartphones may be available for purchase from October 13. Previous reports suggest that this lineup may debut with a 2nd Gen Tensor SoC made by Samsung. A selfie camera with 4K video support can also be found in the handset.
