Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro features have been leaked in new ads for the phones shared by a tipster. The company first unveiled its upcoming phones at Google I/O in May, and the hardware specs of both smartphones have been flipped multiple times. The leaked ads reveal that both the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will have new camera-related software features, including the ability to record video while blurring subjects, like Apple’s Cinematic Mode, introduced with the iPhone 13 series.
Tipster SnoopyTech (@snoopytech) leaked two 30-second commercials for the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro via Twitter. The video for the Pixel 7 Pro reveals a new “macro focus” feature that is said to allow users to take close-up photos of objects. The ad also reveals well-known Pixel 6 Pro features such as Super Res Zoom, Magic Eraser, Live Translate and the Extreme Battery Saver.
The Pixel 7 video reveals that the smartphone will not feature the high-end model’s new macro focus mode. In the meantime, it will offer the other features mentioned above that were also found on its predecessor, the Google Pixel 6.
Both handsets will be equipped with a new “Cinematic Blur” function for a dramatic softening effect when recording videos. While the feature was only revealed in the leaked Pixel 7 video, expect it to be available on the high-end model. Sounding similar to Apple’s Cinematic Mode introduced with the iPhone 13 series, the Cinematic Blur feature switches focus between people or objects in a video, like the effect used in popular TV shows and movies.
The leaked videos for the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro both claim the ability to use the phones for up to 72 hours via Extreme Battery Saver mode. The feature was also available on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, and only allows selected apps to run (along with essential phone apps and services) when the mode is enabled.
It’s unknown if Google will be bringing the new camera features like macro focus mode for the Pixel 6 Pro or the cinematic blur feature for the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro to last year’s phones via the company’s regular Pixel Feature Drops. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are slated to launch on October 6, along with the Google Pixel Watch, which is set to be the company’s first wearable to debut the Pixel brand.
