It’s no secret that Google has had trouble keeping leaks of its upcoming products under control, which is probably why it revealed the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro this early in May. Now, we’re seeing even more, thanks to a Pixel 7 prototype listed on eBay.

Over the weekend, Google’s barely-announced and yet-to-be-released Pixel 7 went up for sale on eBay, starting at $450. Within hours, however, the listing quickly disappeared.

The listing shared images of the phone from multiple angles, explained that it was running a developer build of Android 13, and basically confirmed some details from previous leaks. We’re looking at the “Obsidian” black model here with that shiny back, a new camera system, and that big metal casing around the camera.

If you look closely at the image above, you’ll see the larger Pixel 7 Pro in its reflection. Somehow this person managed to get their hands on both of Google’s new smartphones, and we wouldn’t be surprised if they got their hands on the Pixel Watch.

While the eBay listing doesn’t tell us much, it matches all the renders Google shared at Google I/O. The only other information we can glean from the leak is that the phone has 128GB of storage, as shown in a screenshot. From the pictures, the camera bulge is huge and Google’s Pixel 7 is now ready for testing.

At this point, Google (and the leaks) aren’t leaving much to the imagination. Having said that, 9to5Google it recently found evidence that Google could be working on a third and possibly higher-end Pixel 7 Ultra model.

Google’s Pixel series almost always arrive in October, which means that these phones are several months away from being released and are already available. Who knows, maybe the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro will launch a bit earlier this year. We’ll have to wait and see.
