UPDATE: @OnLeaks has corrected his original statement regarding the dimensions of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, stating that it measures 6.7″ diagonally and not the originally stated 6.5″.
Fans of Google’s lineup of Pixel devices everywhere are anxiously waiting on Google I/O, the company’s annual developers’ conference which is scheduled to take place on May 10th this year. Although normally, this conference is reserved for software announcements and developer workshops, Google set a precedence last year by using the event to tease several new hardware products such as the Pixel 6a, Pixel 7 series, Pixel Buds Pro, and the Pixel Watch. Now that we’ve gotten a taste for getting these hardware teases directly from Google, we expect them to follow suit and do the same thing at this year’s conference.
As seen in the renders above, the images reveal a sleeker, rounder design than its predecessor. Further, the camera module has undergone a major overhaul, with all three lenses now being combined into a single oval cutout.
A new sensor has also been added to the area just below the flash, but its purpose is currently unclear. The assumption is that it might be a macro or depth sensor, or even a new type of sensor we are not expecting.
Pixel smartphone fans have long been requesting that the display for the Pro line match that of the regular non-Pro by adopting a flat design, rather than a curved one like the one on the Pixel 7 Pro. If the leaks prove correct, it looks like the Pixel 8 Pro will have just that, a flat 6.52 inch display. This may be the one tidbit that will most likely nudge Pixel users towards going with a Pixel 8 Pro, rather than a regular Pixel 8, or vice-versa for those that prefer smaller phones but always suffered from the “fear of missing out” on the Pro features.
In contrast to previous Pixel phones, the Pixel 8 Pro will have a flat screen (approximately 6.5 inches in size) and a central punch-hole selfie camera. When the camera bump is included, the total width of the gadget is around 12 millimeters, with dimensions of 162.6 by 76.5 by 8.7 millimeters. The screen’s dimensions have been tweaked to produce softer edges, resulting in a significantly reduced footprint.
The bottom edge houses the USB Type-C port and the speakers, while the upper edge is left empty. Aside from the Google logo on the rear, the power switch and volume rocker are found on the right side. The SIM card slot is on the left side of the device.
