The Pixel 7 series has a different zoom bar than other Google phones. In the comparison below, you see the rather plain UI (left) on a Pixel 6. It’s just a circular scrubber head (with the exact increment) on a line.
The Pixel 7/Pro introduced a more detailed UI (center) where the line is replaced by an oblong pill that notes the available and min/max increments with dots. Google Camera notes the current zoom level with an overly large circle above. The digits are a bit too small and consumed by the container.
Google Camera 8.8 switches to line/tick marks that are reminiscent of a ruler and even markings on a physical DSLR lens. Meanwhile, the current zoom level, with Dynamic Color theming, is larger and no longer housed in a circle.

Version 8.8 of Google Camera with this new zoom UI for the Pixel 7 is not yet widely rolled out in the Play Store.
