Removing the screen once again reveals the use of clips to secure it in addition to adhesive. We see the under-display fingerprint sensor but cannot make any determination based on visual appearance alone, though the flex cable looks different from the Pixel 6a and 6 Pro.
Meanwhile, the cutout for the proximity sensor has been slightly tweaked again and is more to the right of the front-facing camera than last year’s Pro phone.
The vibration motor is connected to the underside of the mid-frame, while this teardown had issues using the attached pull tabs to pry the battery off and turned to isopropyl alcohol.
This Pixel 7 Pro teardown provides interesting looks at the rear-camera array, front-facing selfie cam, and the Tensor G2, though the USB-C port is soldered to the main board.
Hopefully, Google will release a “Pixel repair manual” for the 7 and 7 Pro like it did with the 6a in July. It remains exclusive to France.
