Google has announced that the Pixel 8 series will appear on October 4, 2023. It is believed that the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro variations would be included in the series. The event will take place in New York and start at 10 AM local time/7:30 PM IST, according to the firm. The Pixel 8 will reportedly include a flat screen, a 50MP main camera, and a Tensor G3 engine. The design is likely to be similar to that of prior Pixel phones. Here are a few of the main characteristics of the Google Pixel 8 that have been mentioned thus far.
This time, the Pixel 8 series phones have the codenames Husky and Shiba. Husky looks to be the Pixel 8 Pro, while Shiba might be the entry-level Pixel 8. While the Pixel 8 Pro’s display is expected to have a resolution of 2822x1344p, the Pixel 8 might have a panel with a resolution of 2268x1080p. The Pixel 8’s display is speculated to be 6.17 inches smaller than the Pixel 7’s 6.3-inch display.
Rumour has it that the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro’s brightness will rise to 1400 nits and 1600 nits, respectively. The Pixel 8 Pro is said to have a 6.7-inch display. Displays on both phones could feature a refresh rate of 120Hz.
Both Pixel phones are said to use a 50-megapixel Samsung Isocell GN2 main sensor, an improvement above the GN1 sensor used in the Pixel 7 according to reports. In the telephoto lens, the biggest upgrade is anticipated. The Sony IMX386 that we saw in the Pixel 6 may also be used in the Pixel 8. Sony’s 64-megapixel IMX787 sensor is being added to the Pixel 8 Pro. According to reports, the Samsung 48MP telephoto camera, which has a 5X optical zoom, will remain in the Pixel 8 Pro. It is anticipated that smartphones would include an 11-megapixel camera for selfies and video calls.
The Pixel 8 is anticipated to be powered by the Tensor G3 CPU, which will take the place of the Tensor G2 chipset seen in the Pixel 7a. The phones will run Android 14 (Oreo). According to reports, Google will add five years of software updates for the Pixel 8 to its current three-year policy for significant upgrades and five-year policy for security updates.
The phones may be powered by a 4,485mAh battery that enables 20W wireless charging and 24W quick cable charging.
