Google Pixel 8 release date
New Heights of Innovation: Brace yourselves for the arrival of the highly anticipated Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, set to launch on October 4th. As the tech world gears up for this unveiling, let’s delve into the insights we have so far about these upcoming smartphones.
Dual Delight: Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro
Google’s Pixel 8 lineup offers a choice between two distinct models: the Pixel 8 and the Pixel 8 Pro. A sneak peek of the Pixel 8 Pro’s Licorice color surfaced briefly on the Google Store website. This inadvertent reveal stoked excitement for what’s to come, confirming its potential hues.
Vivid Displays: Pixel 8’s Visual Power
Anticipations rise for the Pixel 8’s 6.17-inch 120Hz AMOLED display, boasting a peak brightness of 1,400 nits and 427 ppi pixel density. Meanwhile, the Pro variant could flaunt a 6.7-inch OLED display with QHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and LTPO technology. Expect the Pixel 8 to maintain a flat display.
Elevated Photography: Pixel 8’s Lens Magic
The Pixel 8’s camera setup is poised for excellence, with a rumored 50MP GN2 primary sensor and a 12MP IMX386 ultra-wide sensor at the rear. A potential addition of a Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor aims to enhance subject detection and improve HDR performance. Front selfies and video calls might be captured through an 11MP lens.
Pro Performance: Pixel 8 Pro’s Imaging Prowess
The Pixel 8 Pro could raise the bar with a triple-camera arrangement featuring a 50MP primary camera, a 64MP ultra-wide camera sensor, and a 48MP telephoto camera. Selfies could be elevated with an 11MP Samsung JN1 sensor.
Empowered Energies: Batteries and Charging
Pixel 8 could house a 4,485mAh battery, while the Pro model might offer up to 4,950mAh capacity. Both are expected to charge faster than ever—Pixel 8 at 24W wired or 20W wirelessly, and Pixel 8 Pro at 27W wired and 23W wirelessly.
Under the Hood: Pixel 8’s Core Strength
Beneath the surface, Pixel 8 is likely to be powered by an octa-core Google Tensor G3 processor, known as “Zuma.” With a 1+4+4 CPU setup, it incorporates Cortex-X3 (3.05 GHz), four Cortex-A715 cores (2.45 GHz), and four Cortex-A510 cores (2.15 GHz). Expect performance to soar with the Samsung Exynos 2300-based G5300 modem.
