A screenshot says that the phone’s model is GVU6C. And one portray means that this eBay seller may per chance presumably perhaps well also possess gotten their palms on a Pixel 7 Professional as smartly, as you’d utilize the reflection of what appears to be like to be to be the Pixel 7 Professional’s digicam bar on the wait on of the Pixel 7 prototype.
