It finally happened. We get our first look at the Google Pixel 8 Pro. While Google hasn’t confirmed the existence of this phone or even hinted at it yet, we do know that it’s coming this year and this could be the first real look at the smartphone.
The leak comes from Smartprix, in partnership with Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known through his online personality, OnLeaks. OnLeaks has a pretty good track record of leaking things early, so you can bet these latest renders of the Pixel 8 Pro are relatively accurate. While that’s pretty cool, for the most part the Pixel 8 Pro’s shape and style remains the same as its predecessor. That said, however, there are a few differences, the main difference being the camera bar on the back.
While the Pixel 8 Pro will still have a triple-camera setup on the back, it looks like the camera array will now be merged into one piece, making it a bit cleaner than the previous model. Additionally, the camera flash looks a bit larger and has even been moved upwards to accommodate another sensor that has been added to the camera bar. Unfortunately, Smartprix doesn’t have details about this new sensor, so it’s anyone’s guess what it is. In addition to the detailed look of the phone, the website also shares that the Pixel 8 Pro will have a flat 6.52-inch screen, with a camera hole in the top center. Furthermore, the device will be slightly smaller with dimensions of 162.6mm × 76.5mm × 8.7mm. While other details are still unclear at this stage, the website says that the upcoming smartphone will be powered by a new Google Tensor processor made by Samsung.
As for the release of this handset, it will most likely arrive later this year. With Google I/O 2023 just a few months away, it’s possible the company will offer a preview of the handsets at the event. Besides, it could also launch Pixel Fold and Pixel 7a.
