As October approaches, the tech world anticipates the official unveiling of Google’s Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, following the company’s usual schedule. Despite being three months away from the event, multiple leaks have surfaced, providing insight into the upcoming duo. Today, a comprehensive list of the Pixel 8 Pro’s most significant specifications has emerged, shedding light on what to expect.
The Pixel 8 Pro, the more premium of Google’s 2023 flagship devices, is rumored to feature a 6.7-inch QHD+ 120 Hz LTPO OLED display. Powering the device is the Google Tensor G3 SoC, equipped with a dedicated Titan security chip. Accompanied by 12GB of RAM and storage options of 128GB or 256GB, the Pixel 8 Pro promises to deliver a smooth performance.
The device boasts a substantial 4,950 mAh battery, which supports 27W wired charging. Users can expect the latest Android 14 operating system right out of the box. Google has integrated an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner for enhanced security. Additionally, the Pixel 8 Pro introduces a new feature: an infrared temperature sensor, which could have been a significant selling point during the COVID-19 pandemic’s peak in 2020.
The rear camera system comprises three sensors, including a 50 MP main camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), a 64 MP ultrawide lens, and a 48 MP telephoto lens. Selfies are handled by an 11 MP front-facing camera. Reports indicate that the main sensor may be Samsung’s ISOCELL GN2, the telephoto sensor the ISOCELL GM5, and the ultrawide sensor Sony’s IMX787. A new Time of Flight (ToF) sensor is expected to improve focus capabilities.
Observing the leaked specifications, it becomes evident that the Pixel 8 Pro is an incremental evolution from its predecessor, the Pixel 7 Pro, rather than a revolutionary leap in features and capabilities.
