The official release of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro is a few months away, but Google is still moving on give a preview of future flagships at the 2022 I / O Developers Conference. Shortly after the brief review, several Twitter users began to notice similarities between the rear camera expressions on the Pixel 7 Pro and the “no recess” design on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. If you look closely, the resemblance is striking.
Google’s attempt to make subtle changes to the design of the Pixel 7 Pro may have led to the company accidentally copying the biggest aesthetic change of the iPhone 14
Instead of a glass visor that closes the three cameras, Google has switched to aluminum, making the sensors visible on teaser images that were published during the leitmotif. However, when switching the location of the rear camera looks strangely similar to the expression “tablet + notch”, which is expected to appear on the front of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
According to rumors, Apple has long been getting rid of the notch on its premium models, although it will remain on the less expensive iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. If you look at the image below, the front cutout on the iPhone 14 looks identical to the back of the Pixel 7 Pro, so you’ll wonder if Google did it on purpose, knowing that Apple planned these changes a few months in advance.
We speculate that Google’s decision to put an aluminum frame in the Pixel 7 Pro chassis may have been a harmless attempt to get a design that was different from the Pixel 6 Pro. In the end, keeping the same look would leave a stale taste in the buyer’s mouth, regardless of whether the list of improvements made to the Pixel 7 Pro was huge compared to the Pixel 6 Pro.
The new design is always striking, and the decision to introduce new colors for the Pixel 7 Pro was the right approach. That way, potential customers know they’re getting a brand new product, even if it means unintentionally taking anything from the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
