Google Pixel 8 & 8 Pro set to feature exciting upgrades.



Google Pixel 8 and 8 Pro

All you need to know about Google Pixel 8 and 8 pro, rumoured Release Date, Specs, Price and more.

The Google Pixel 8 series has us eagerly anticipating what’s to come after months of speculation, fuelled by leaks and rumours. While the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro made a stylish debut, all eyes are now on the upcoming Pixel 8 release. With promising new features and upgrades on the horizon, the Pixel 8 is set to exceed expectations and redefine what we can expect from a smartphone.

Building upon the lessons learned from their first-generation Tensor-powered devices, Google has created two of the finest Android phones currently available in the market. Not only do they offer a comprehensive range of features, but they also come at prices that are more affordable than the competition. However, with the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro already dominating the smartphone world, it’s only natural to wonder what Google has in store for the future of the Google Pixel 8 series.

As we enter 2023, Google’s line-up of Android devices is set to expand significantly, with the highly anticipated Pixel Fold, the dock-based Google Pixel Tablet, and the mid-range Pixel 7a all on the horizon. While we were impressed by last year’s flagships, there’s always room for improvement, and we’re excited to see what Google has in store for their next generation of mainline phones. Although concrete details about the Pixel 8 remain scarce at this early stage, we do know that Google has some exciting plans in the works.

Goggle Pixel 8 series upgrades:

As we look ahead to the next wave of Google’s smartphones, it seems that we can expect some exciting upgrades to both the design and performance of the Pixel series. While concrete details are still inadequate, the leaked information and early renders suggest that the upcoming Pixel 8 phones, codenamed Pixel 8 (Husky) and Pixel 8 Pro (Shiba), will offer significant improvements over their predecessors.

According to leaked display information, the Pixel 8 Pro (Husky) is set to boast an impressive 2822x1344p resolution, while the smaller Pixel 8 (Shiba) will offer a 2268x1080p resolution – both slightly lower than the current Pixel 7 phones. This could indicate that Google is pursuing a new design direction for their next generation of phones, potentially even featuring a slightly smaller form factor for the Pixel 8. While we eagerly await further leaks and details, it’s clear that the Pixel 8 series is shaping up to be a significant step forward for Google’s flagship smartphones.

As rumours continue to swirl around the highly anticipated Google Pixel 8 Pro, leaked information suggests that the smaller Pixel 8 may feature a new, more compact form factor. While previous rumours had suggested that the Pixel 8 Pro would retain its 6.7-inch display, a leaked roadmap for Google’s mobile division indicates that the Pixel 8 may feature a slightly smaller screen.

Recent renders appear to confirm this theory, with a 6.2-inch display rumoured for the Pixel 8 – a minor reduction from the 6.3-inch screen found on the previous generation Pixel 7. While it may not be as compact as some other phones on the market, such as the 5.9-inch Asus Zenfone 9, the slightly smaller size could make the Pixel 8 more manageable for users who prefer a smaller device.

In addition to its potential new design, the Pixel 8 series is expected to feature some significant upgrades under the hood. Rumours suggest that Google’s third-generation Tensor G3 chipset, codenamed Zuma, is currently in testing. Based on the unannounced Samsung Exynos 2300 processor and built on Samsung’s 3nm node, the Tensor G3 has the potential to significantly improve efficiency and performance over its predecessor, the 5nm Tensor G2.

Final Sneak Peaks into what’s to come:

  • The Google Pixel 8 lineup is expected to come with some design tweaks, with the Pixel 8 Pro sporting a slightly modified Pixel 7 Pro design, while the regular Pixel 8 is set to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, the Pixel 7.
  • OnLeaks has provided some renders of the Pixel 8 Pro that show a new camera bar, which is more spread out across the device to give each sensor some extra space. Additionally, the corners are now more rounded, similar to the Samsung Galaxy S23+, and the Pro model now features a flat display, matching the panel on its smaller devices.
  • On the other hand, the regular Pixel 8 is slightly smaller than its predecessor, with dimensions of 150.5 x 70.8 x 8.9mm (12mm in thickness with the camera array included) compared to the Pixel 7’s 155.6 x 73.2 x 8.7mm. However, the screen size remains about the same at 6.2 inches.
  • The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are also rumoured to come with an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, which should be faster than the Pixel 7’s optical sensor. However, it may not match the speed of the one on the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
  • The Pixel 8 and 8 Pro will feature an upgraded ‘Video Unblur’ tool which will work similarly to Photo Unblur that Google introduced with the Pixel 7 series last year. The ‘Photo Unblur’ tool in Google Photos uses the power of the Tensor chip to sharpen photographs.
  • While rumours over last summer suggested Google was experimenting with a ceramic phone, the specific model mentioned in those claims turned out to be the codename for the Google Pixel 7a. Nonetheless, it would make more sense to see a high-end, durable material like ceramic appear on the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro.
  • Another interesting design change in the Pixel 8 lineup is the switch to a polished metal frame, which brings the regular Pixel 8 in line with the Pixel 8 Pro and the Pixel 7 Pro. However, it’s uncertain whether this is a stylistic decision for the renders or an actual change in the design.

Google Pixel 8 and 8 Pro- Pricing and Release date

As for pricing and release dates, they remain a mystery for the Google Pixel 8 lineup. The Pixel 6 and Pixel 7 have been praised for their affordability compared to other flagship smartphones on the market. However, it’s unclear whether Google will be able to maintain this pricing strategy for the Pixel 8, and fans are eagerly waiting for more information.

Overall, these changes seem to indicate a minor upgrade to the Pixel 8 lineup, but we’ll have to wait for the official release to see if there are any significant improvements to the devices’ hardware and software.
