On the finish of Could, we reported on Google’s unreleased Pixel 7 popping up on eBay. Now, it seems like one other Pixel 7 prototype, the flagship Pixel 7 Professional, ended up on Fb market and in somebody’s pocket.
From the reports and feedback we’re seeing, somebody purchased what they thought was Google’s present Pixel 6 Professional on Fb market. Then, that individual claims to have used the cellphone for a number of weeks, purchased a case for it, and loved it with out realizing it’s the unreleased Pixel 7 Professional operating early prototype software program.
The customer mentioned it on Reddit, then ultimately shared photographs to confirm that that they had a Pixel 7 Professional. Sadly, as soon as the Pixel 7 confirmed up on eBay earlier this week, Google took motion and remotely erased and disabled some Pixel 7 prototypes, killing the cellphone. Now, the Fb purchaser has a non-functioning machine, which is how we acquired to the place we at the moment are.
This Is Tech Today reportedly discovered a Pixel 7 prototype on Fb market as effectively and suggests these telephones got here from the identical individual. This all sounds just a little fishy, however nothing surprises me anymore, particularly with regards to Google units.
For no matter cause, Google can’t appear to cease the leaks. And these simply aren’t leaked photographs. These are bodily merchandise showing in public, getting used, offered, and in any other case distributed. It’s odd to see, contemplating the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Professional seemingly gained’t get launched till October.
These new telephones aren’t simply delivery per week or so early, however one way or the other being offered 4+ months earlier than they’re even purported to get launched. Perhaps that’s why Google selected to point out them off at Google I/O months sooner than anybody anticipated.
We didn’t study something new from this newest Pixel 7 Professional leak. It’s simply one other instance of Google’s telephones out within the wild. Nonetheless, contemplating they’re being examined so early, perhaps Google will launch the Pixel 7 collection earlier this 12 months. We’ll have to attend and see.
