Google Pixel 7 Pro - Dear Google

Google has already revealed the first look of the Pixel 7 lineup. We also saw the hands-on images of the phones, which revealed the complete design and some specs of the handset. But it looks like the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro aren't the only two devices Google is launching in October, Google may have another Pixel smartphone up its sleeve and that could be the long-awaited Pixel 7 Ultra.

You see, 9to5Google has discovered some code-names for the upcoming products with display specifications. The list includes a total of 5 products and out of the five, one product code-named G10 has fueled speculation that Google has another member of the Pixel 7 family up its sleeve.

The coding says the G10's screen would have a resolution of 3120 x 1440 with a 120Hz refresh rate same as the Pixel 7 Pro, but the measurement says it's a little bigger than the 7 Pro. The Pixel 7 Pro will have a 6.7" display, so we're looking at nearly a 6.8" display for this alleged Pixel 7 Ultra.

Unfortunately, we don't have any other information about this handset but hopefully, this is the Pixel Ultra phone that Google fans have been asking for years that will truly rival the best from Samsung and Apple. With that said, here are some improvements that we want to see with the Pixel 7 lineup.

The first one is Longer software support than Samsung You see in the Android world, Samsung is currently the undisputed king of software updates with 4 years of software updates and 5 years of security updates.

Google also supports their devices for up to 5 years but with only 3 years of software updates, which is certainly not a good look for a company that owns Android to have their competitor beat them in their own game. So dear Google, with the Pixel 7, either provide more software updates than Samsung or at least match what Samsung is offering right now.

Moving on, the second improvement we want to see is bug-free software. It's quite surprising to see a company that specializes in software has the most bugs in their phone's software. Pixel 6 was promising at launch, but the constant bugs in the software made the experience awful. Thankfully, the company has been pretty proactive with its fixes and the situation is far better now. But what we want with the Pixel 7 is bug-free software from day 1 and that's the least they can do since they have unlimited control over Android and their hardware.

Next is faster charging. The Pixel 6 Pro offers a 30W of wired charging which on paper looks good but in reality, Google tends to throttle the charging speeds so that you can get to a maximum of 23W. It takes a long time to charge, which is not ideal for a flagship Android phone in this day and age. So I hope that gets fixed with the Pixel 7 lineup. Then there's a Better fingerprint sensor.

Although Google has improved the fingerprint scanner on the Pixel 6 quite a bit since its launch but like I've said, we want reliable and bug-free software or hardware from day 1. This isn't something you even think about when getting a phone from Samsung or others. So Google needs to up their game if they want to be a viable alternative to Samsung and others. Thankfully the Pixel 7 lineup will offer almost the same specs as its predecessor except for a new Tensor chip so Google can really focus on getting the basics right with the Pixel 7.
