Google Pixel devices are often one of the most-leaked smartphone brands in this day and age. After a hands-on video featuring Pixel 7 test units surfaced online a while back, it seems that Google’s upcoming flagship handset has yet again been spotted in another video.

A post by Twitter user Abhishek Yadav allegedly shows an unboxing of the Pixel 7 Pro, and given the design of the packaging, as well as the “G” logo on the rear panel of the device (the earlier hands-on video lacked the same), it appears that the device in the new video is a retail version of the much-anticipated Android handset. It even comes with the usual array of paperwork and charging cable accessories inside the box.
The phone even displays the familiar boot animation when powered on, followed by the “Welcome” page that precedes the set-up process seen in Google Pixel devices. It’s a very convincing video, although it leads one to wonder how the unit was obtained.
Of course, this isn’t the first time that a Google device was leaked to the public – the recently-launched Pixel 6a was spotted in an online leak months before its launch, as well as the upcoming Google Pixel Watch, which was supposedly found unattended in a public location.
Going back to the Pixel 7 Pro, it’s speculated that the device might be announced sometime in October, at least according to tech informant Jon Prosser. Then again, nothing is official until Google says so, so Pixel fans will have to do a bit of waiting if they want to get more official information.
