After a brief launch event, Google Pixel 7 preorders are now live - for both the Pixel 7 and the more premium Google Pixel 7 Pro. If you're interested in jumping on the Google bandwagon and bagging what's likely to be one of the best Android phones all year, we've rounded up the best retailers - as well as their launch promotions - just down below.
Retailing for $599 / £599 for the Google Pixel 7 and $899 / £899 for the Pixel 7 Pro puts them at the same price as last year's Pixel 6 devices. In short, it's an extremely competitive price tag and one that makes them undercut the competition from Samsung and Apple significantly. Even better still, there are some superb opening preorder promotions that really, really sweeten the deal on these devices in both the US and UK.
For example, the Google Store in the US is offering a trade-in rebate of up to $750 and a $100 gift card on the house. Over in the UK, you'll find either a free pair of Google Buds or the brand-spanking new Google Pixel Watch - an absolutely amazing offer.
Carrier options are equally strong too. For example, both AT&T and Verizon are offering the usual trade-in rebates that can score you a device for free, whereas Carphone Warehouse in the UK is offering cheap tariffs and those freebies already previously mentioned. If you want to read more about these devices, and see a full list of our recommended promotions, check out our main Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro deals page.

What's new with the Google Pixel 7?
On the surface, not a lot has changed with the Pixel 7 - it features the same basic design and display as the previous Pixel 6, with a few tweaks here and there. What has changed, however, is the internal chip and camera setup.
Both the Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro come with the Tensor 2 chip, which is the second iteration of the brand's own silicon. While it's a little more sluggish than the competition (namely the A16 Bionic in the iPhone 14), it's focused on improving the Pixel 6's strong suit of computational photography and machine learning. In short, it's looking to make the latest devices even better in areas where Pixel devices usually shine.
It's not just the brains inside the Pixel 7 that's been improved, either. The cameras have also received a boost when it comes to zoom and image stabilization, which should make them even easier to use. While we haven't gotten our hands on these devices yet (well, enough to truly put them through their paces), they're highly likely to be some of the best camera phones on the market.
