CAD-based renders of the Google Pixel 8 Pro surfaced online earlier today after they had been stolen. Recently, renders of the regular Pixel 8 have surfaced online, and they were first given by the trustworthy tipster Onleaks. These pictures provide our very first glance at the mobile device. It is anticipated that Google will demonstrate the Pixel 8 series at its next I/O Developer conference in the month of May. Being the successors to the Pixel 7 series released the previous year, the smartphones will be made available for purchase later in the month of October in this year.
Design and display
The images show that the next-generation Pixel 8 will have a form factor that is both tiny and thin. It appears to be somewhat less substantial than its predecessor. The edges of the gadget are rounded, and there is a punch hole cutout in the display that is positioned in the middle. In addition, there are small bezels surrounding the screen. The horizontal camera bridge is still there on the back panel, which also has two sensors housed in a pill-shaped cutout and an LED flash situated outside. The smartphone has a frame made of aluminium, and the power button and volume rocker are both situated on the right side of the device. The USB Type-C connector can be found at the bottom of the device, just next to the speaker grille.
According to Onleaks’s latest report, Google’s next Pixel 8 smartphone will have a 5.8-inch display, making it significantly smaller than the 6.3-inch screen on the Pixel 7. The new product will have dimensions of 150.5 by 70.8 by 8.9 millimetres, respectively (12mm with the camera bump). This version of the Pixel 7 is 5mm shorter and 2mm slimmer than the previous version.
There are reports that Google’s future Tensor G3 processor will be used to power the Pixel 8, which will be released later this year. The I/O 2023 conference will begin on May 10, and by that time, we will have more information regarding the smartphone.
