Last night, a Google Pixel 7 prototype was listed on eBay and Facebook marketplaces. Both ads were posted by the same person. Here is a screenshot of the eBay listing (via android font) which listed the seller’s location in McKinney, TX.

The eBay listing was posted on Reddit via r/Android where he attracted a lot of attention. However, the Pixel 7 prototype was first listed on Facebook Marketplace, as noted This is today’s technologyby Brandon Lee via Twitter. The Marketplace listing was titled Pixel 6, but the images showed a pre-production Pixel 7 prototype, as evidenced by the unusual logo and markings on the hardware.

Here is Brandon Lee’s latest video where he mentions the Facebook Marketplace listing and how the name and location of the seller (Frisco, Texas) was publicly displayed on the listing (Screenshot of this listing at 2:10 in the video). This information is blocked in the video and the list is no longer available on Facebook. The story begins around the 2:02 Mark.

It was unclear how the seller obtained the Google Pixel 7 prototype, and not just the Pixel 7, but upon close inspection of the device listed, it can be seen that the images were captured by a Google Pixel prototype 7 Pro via Mishaal Rahman.

According to another Tweet from Brandon, it’s possible the seller has multiple Pixel 7 prototypes.

It’s not known how the seller obtained these devices, and the listing on eBay was removed by the seller “because there was a mistake in the listing” hours after it went viral on Reddit and after been picked up by the media.

Here are the images that were on the now deleted eBay listing. The Pixel 7 pictured and the Pixel 7 Pro taking the photos corroborate the hardware Google showed us earlier this month when previewing new smartphone hardware. Here is an archived version of the eBay listing provided by Mishaal Rahman on Twitter.

The Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro aren’t expected to hit the market until the end of the year, presumably in October, as history tells us.
