The Pixel 8 Pro appears to have unintentionally made an early appearance on the Google Store website as Google’s next flagship smartphone. @android_setting, a sharp-eyed Twitter user, was the first to catch this error.
They stumbled across a close-up photo of the Pixel 8 Pro exhibiting the new color choice “Porcelain.” Early leaks of the phone had previously shown us a glimpse of its revamped camera module, which has a smoother, rounder appearance. This image matched those reports.
It’s interesting to note that the leaked Google Store image also attests to a change in the front camera setup’s appearance.
The Pixel 8 Pro will use a centered hole-punch cutout for its selfie camera, as opposed to the Pixel 7 Pro, which has a dual-lens selfie camera in a pill-shaped cutout.
Let’s look into some of the Pixel 8 Pro’s alleged features. The 6.7-inch OLED display on the phone is anticipated to be powered by Google’s Tensor G3 processor.
It is rumored to have a triple-lens rear camera system on the photography front. The phone could have up to 12GB of RAM to tackle tasks well. If all goes as planned, Google may introduce the Pixel 8 Pro in October 2023.
Regarding the price, rumors have it that the Pixel 8 Pro may start at roughly $649 in the US. Compared to the Pixel 7 Pro, which had a starting price of $599, this would be a modest price increase.
It’s significant to remember that Google hasn’t yet made the Pixel 8 Pro official. The unintended disclosure of its design on the Google Store website, however, strongly suggests that the phone’s release is getting closer. Expect additional information to become available in the coming weeks.
