The distinctive camera bar is back, and this year it is an aluminum bar with holes for cameras. And the alleged prototype’s casing is a bold black, just like one of the colors Google showed off at I/O.
The eBay listing includes some photos of the front, back, and side of the device, though there’s not much to see and you can’t really spot on official Google renders. An image of the phone in action shows that it has 128GB of storage, which indicates that Google will once again feature a 128GB model as an option for the final phone. Screenshot shows that the phone model is GVU6C. And one of the images suggests that this eBay seller may have gotten their hands on the Pixel 7 Pro as well, where you can catch the reflection of what appears to be the Pixel 7 Pro’s camera strip on the back of the Pixel 7 prototype.
