Google has difficulty keeping its smartphone prototypes hidden from curious eyes and guarding against leaks. Individual claims to own a Google Pixel 7 Pro and provide evidence in the form of images.
You can decide whether or not to accept this tweet, which may very well be complete fiction. However, in this case, what intrigues us is that the device resembles a Pixel 7 Pro prototype. It doesn’t matter how the source got his hands on it.
Remember that Google gave a formal presentation of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro designs at its most recent WWDC, well ahead of schedule, because it was aware that these kinds of circumstances might arise and anticipated the leaks.
A screenshot also contains details about the device, such as its code name, the maker’s name, or the Android ID assigned to it. The phone’s curved screen may also be observed to be present.
The concerned source claims that at the start of July, Google remotely deleted Android 13 from the phone, rendering it useless. It means that it stops at the bootloader and cannot continue. He posted a request for assistance on the XDA Developers forum in an attempt to restart the device.
Still, even if he succeeds, it is highly likely to have restricted functioning due to the lack of an active Android license.
