It will be introduced in October 2022 to replace the Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, which were released last year. Several leaks, rumours, and certification listings for the forthcoming handsets have revealed critical details. The soon-to-be-released phones are also expected to offer significant improvements over previous generations. A few days before the formal debut, a tipster has detailed all of the likely smartphone specifications and prices.
In a post on X, tipster Kamila Wojciechowska (@Za_Raczke) detailed the Pixel 8 series’ full features and estimated price points. According to the rumor, the Pixel 8 will be available in Obsidian, Hazel, and Rose color options, while the Pixel 8 Pro will be available in Obsidian, Porcelain, and Bay. According to the post, the base model will cost $699 (about Rs. 51,800), while the pro model would cost $899 (approximately Rs. 74,800).
The Pixel 8 is believed to have a 6.17-inch OLED display with full-HD+ resolution, while the Pixel 8 Pro is expected to have a 6.71-inch LTPO OLED display with QHD resolution. Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection is anticipated to be included with the screens. The devices are believed to be powered by Tensor G3 SoCs and will be available in 8GB + 12GB and 128GB + 256GB RAM and storage configurations. The phones will come pre-installed with Android 14.
The Pixel 8’s dual rear camera unit is expected to support a 50-megapixel primary sensor and a 12-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide lens, while the Pixel 8 Pro is expected to include a 50-megapixel primary sensor with OIS, a 48-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide lens, and another 48-megapixel telephoto camera with 5x zoom.
