The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will be up for pre-order in India on October 6, which is the same day as the global launch. The company has confirmed this on Twitter. This basically suggests that Google won't take very long to bring the Pixel 7 series to India and that one can expect it to arrive in the coming days or weeks. Flipkart has also revealed some of the special pre-order offers. Here's everything you need to know.
The e-commerce giant has published a dedicated page for the Pixel 7 series. The Flipkart listing says that those who will pre-order the new phone will be able to buy the Pixel Buds A series at a discounted price of Rs 5,999. Its original retail price in India is Rs 9,999, which means that customers will be getting a discount of Rs 4,000.
Furthermore, the Fitbit Inspire 2 fitness band can be bought for as low as Rs 4,999. It was originally launched for Rs 7,999 in India. So, Google will be giving a discount of Rs 3,000 on this wearable. Lastly, those who will pre-order the Pixel 7 series will be given the handset on a priority basis. Flipkart hasn't revealed any bank offers yet. Google is expected to confirm the same on the launch day.
It is currently unknown what could be the price of the new phones. The leaks so far claim that the price of the Pixel 7 series will start from $599 in the US, which is approximately Rs 48,580 in India when converted. The Indian prices will likely be higher than the US market. The standard model is expected to be priced under Rs 60,000 segment. You can check more on the pricing part here.
Google has already confirmed a few details about the upcoming phones. They will be powered by its second-generation Tensor chipset and the units will retain the same old design that we saw on the Pixel 6 series. The handsets will run on Android 13 out of the box.
The teasers shared by Google reveal that the standard model will pack a dual rear camera setup, whereas the Pro model will feature three cameras at the back. The company is claiming that the new Pixel 7 series will deliver "more detail," "more focus" and "more magic" (eraser tool).
