There’s more Pixel Watch stuff here too
With a heavy dose of Pixel Watch leaks coming over the weekend, consider this a wind change as we head out: The Pixel 7 will be stripped down with leaked spec sheets and ads well ahead of Google’s event Thursday. Okay, maybe we’ll bring back some new Pixel Watch information for dessert too.
The spec sheets come from a Taiwanese carrier and have been passed on to the Google News Telegram channel (via 9to5Google) which translated one of the sheets. They give some definition to some aspects of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro that we haven’t known until now.

In particular, we learn here that the zoom numbers have been increased from the Pixel 6 series devices, although the rear cameras have not changed. The same 50MP general purpose sensor that could produce Super Res Zoom photos at 7x on the Pixel 6 can do 8x on the Pixel 7. The 48MP telephoto unit on the Pixel 6 Pro that went for 4x optical zoom and up to 20x with some digital enhancements will be surpassed by the Pixel 7 Pro by multiples of 6x and 30x respectively. Get ready for more camera comparisons once the review units start circulating.
Other specs, including screen size and memory options, have been reported previously. Both phones will be able to produce what machine translation calls “Movie Motion Blur,” which is believed to mimic the cinema mode of the latest iPhones. The Pixel 7 Pro is the only device billed with Macro Focus.
We can see these two features in action with what appears to be ads aimed at the post-release marketing phase, as leaked by SnoopyTech on Twitter (via 9to5Google). We can conclude that “Movie Motion Blur” is actually called Cinematic Blur, as made clear in the Pixel 7 Pro ad. Perhaps it can put the Pixel 6’s Action Pan to shame. The ads appear to follow the motifs seen in an officially released Google ad on YouTube, seen below.
And if you’re wondering, yes, the Pixel Watch appears in its own leaked ad. Highlights include the ability to make calls, make NFC payments and control smart home appliances.
Which brings us back to Google News on Telegram with another post, presumably from the same source who pulled in material from a Taiwanese carrier, showing off even more marketing material for the Pixel Watch — including confirmation of a 24-hour battery life and a “What’s in the box” diagram showing the recording of two tape formats and the magnetic charging dock with USB-C connector.
Good news for those on the edge of their seats, biting their fingers for every new development: I have a feeling the next three days will have plenty in store for you.
