Leaked press images have given us a glimpse into what Google may have in store for its upcoming Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro smartphones. Renowned leaker Evan Blass recently shared information that seemed to come directly from Google, detailing the specifications of both devices. The leaked images hint at a range of colors, including Porcelain and Black Obsidian for the Pixel 8 Pro, and Gray and Peony Rose for the regular Pixel 8.
One notable difference between the two models is their camera setups. The Pixel 8 Pro is said to feature three cameras in its camera bar, along with a temperature sensor located below the LED flash on the back. The Pixel 8, on the other hand, will sport two cameras and lacks the thermometer sensor. These leaked images provide a clearer picture of what to expect from Google’s upcoming smartphone lineup.
Moreover, Blass also shared an image showcasing a Sky Blue Pixel 8 Pro alongside the rumored Pixel Watch 2, with both devices sporting matching bands. According to previous leaks, consumers who pre-order the Pixel 8 Pro in the United States may receive a free Pixel Watch 2. Another image reveals a Gray Pixel 8 paired with Pixel Buds Pro true wireless earbuds, suggesting that pre-ordering the Pixel 8 might also come with the perk of receiving free earbuds.
One aspect that remains unclear is whether the rumors about the Pixel 8 series featuring an ultrasonic under-display fingerprint scanner are accurate. Users may recall the difficulties some experienced with the optical fingerprint scanner on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 series, as well as the mid-range “A” series.
The upcoming Made by Google event on October 4th will shed more light on these rumors and unveil the official details of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. Interestingly, the event will be held in New York City, often referred to as the “Big Apple.” Keep an eye out for our coverage of the event to stay up-to-date with the latest information on Google’s next flagship smartphones.
