Google Pixel 8 Pro – First Look
Hollyhealthfitness has teamed up with On Leaks to bring you an exclusive first look at the upcoming Pixel 8 Pro smartphone. Unlike its predecessor’s boxy shape, the images show a redesigned body with rounded corners. A significant change can also be seen in the camera module, where all three lenses remain now integrated into a single oval area. A new sensor remains beneath the flash, but its function is unknown. A macro or depth sensor, LiDAR, or an entirely new sensor technology could be used.
The Pixel 8 Pro smartphone will have a flat panel rather than a curved one and a 6.7-inch display with a centered punch-hole selfie camera. The device measures 162.676.58.7mm in length and 12mm in thickness when the camera bump remains included. The display has been resized to have more rounded corners, making it slightly smaller overall.
The USB Type-C port and speakers are on the bottom edge, leaving the top edge empty. The control button and volume rocker are on the right edge, with the Google logo on the back. Finally, on the left edge is the SIM tray.
Everything We Know About the Google Pixel 8 Pro So Far
This time, the new Pixel series will remain powered by a new Google Tensor chipset with premium specifications. The Google Tensor G3 chipset remains expected to power the upcoming Pixel 8 Pro, which is rumored to be based on the unannounced Samsung Exynos 2300 processor and Samsung’s 3nm node technology. Because the current Google Tensor G2 chipset is built on 5nm technology, the Tensor G3 chipset implementation could potentially improve performance and efficiency.
Google is also expected to boost its camera hardware game. Google’s flagship Pixel smartphones in 2023 remain expected to support staggered HDR technology. This novel feature allows for the simultaneous capture of multiple exposures using the same pixels. As a result, the same visual effect as traditional HDR can remain obtained without the increased capture time or the risk of blurry images due to frame misalignment caused by movement. As the I/O 2023 approaches, expect more updates to arrive, so keep an eye on this space.
