The latest leak regarding Google’s upcoming Pixel 8 series and Pixel Watch 2 has provided more information on their specifications and battery sizes. The leak, originating from WinFuture, reveals images showcasing the colors and updated design of the devices.
While the leaked images do not offer any groundbreaking revelations, they do confirm a few key details. The Pixel 8 will feature a 6.17-inch FHD, 120Hz display with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of storage. On the other hand, the Pixel 8 Pro will have a larger 6.7-inch QHD+ display, 12GB of RAM, and storage options of 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB. Notably, the use of 128GB storage variants suggests that Google may not be utilizing the faster UFS 4.0 storage found in other flagship devices.
In terms of camera specifications, both the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro will boast a Samsung GN2 50MP main sensor. The Pixel 8 Pro will additionally feature a 64MP Sony IMX787 for its ultrawide camera and a 48MP Samsung GM5 sensor for the 5x telephoto lens. The Pixel 8, on the other hand, will include a 12MP Sony IMX386 sensor for its ultrawide camera. Both devices will also come equipped with an 11MP Samsung sensor for the front camera.
The leak also mentions the battery sizes for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, which are reported to be 4,600 mAh and 5,100 mAh, respectively. These numbers indicate a slight increase in battery capacity compared to their predecessors.
Furthermore, some specifications for the Pixel Watch 2 are also mentioned in the leak. The watch is said to have a 306 mAh battery, a slight improvement from the previous model’s 294 mAh battery. It will feature a 1.2-inch OLED display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a range of health sensors.
Although much of this information has been circulating for some time, WinFuture’s track record and the timing of the leak provide more credibility to the details. The leak also reiterates the previously rumored pricing, with the Pixel 8 priced at 799 Euros, the Pixel 8 Pro at 1,099 Euros, and the Pixel Watch 2 at 399 Euros.
