The Google Pixel 7 could be getting four global models
- Four Pixel phone models were found on the FCC’s certification website.
- Two will support sub-6GHz 5G and the other two will have mmWave connectivity.
- The mmWave versions also appear to support UWB.
As we inch closer to the release date of the Google Pixel 7 later this year, it’s only natural for more details to come out. This time we’ve learned about four models listed on the FCC’s certification website.
Just so you know, before a company can manufacture, sell, or distribute any type of electronic device, it first needs to be approved by the FCC. So it’s no surprise we’d see something related to the Pixel 7 by now.
However, what may be a surprise is the fact that four Pixel models appear in the regulator’s listings. First discovered by MySmartPrice, these models include GP4BC, GVU6C, GE2AE, and GQML3.
While the listing doesn’t reveal a ton of information, it appears the GE2AE and GQML3 models support mmWave connectivity. In contrast, the GP4BC and GVU6C models will only support sub-6GHz 5G.
Most notably, the GP4BC and GE2AE will feature ultrawide band (UWB), a short-range wireless connectivity option. Since UWB was originally available in the Pixel 6 Pro, this could suggest that the GP4BC and GE2AE models are the Pixel 7 Pro.
Also confirmed in the listing is that all four devices will support Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth, NFC, and wireless charging.
According to leaks, the Pixel 7 could go on pre-order on October 6 and then be available from October 13. It’s expected the 7 Pro will be the same size as the 6 Pro. However, the Pixel 7 will likely be slightly shorter than the Pixel 6, coming in at 155.6 x 73.1 x 8.7mm. The devices will definitely include the second generation of the Tensor chip.
