Yesterday Apple announced the launch date for the iPhone 15 series – the new iPhones will be officially launched on September 12th. Yesterday evening, Google followed suit with the date for its next big hardware event. The Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro will officially see the light of day on October 4th. In contrast to Apple’s event, which as usual takes place on the campus in Cupertino, California, Google has chosen New York City as the venue. Both events start at 10 a.m. local time.

According to Google’s invitation, the October 4 event will feature “the latest additions” to its Pixel device portfolio. That means we may also see the premiere of the Google Pixel Watch 2. Matching the teaser, the Google Pixel 8 Pro leaked through the Californian’s online shop a few hours earlier. The design came to light as you can see in the pictures below.

The Google Pixel 8 Pro has been a regular in the rumor mill for the past few weeks, with various specs being discussed. According to this, the Pro has a 6.7-inch LTPO-OLED display with a QHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The new Tensor G3 chipset takes over the drive in combination with 12 GB RAM and 128 or 256 GB storage. We also get an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor in the display and a skin temperature sensor.

New camera system

The camera system consists of three lenses – a 50-megapixel main camera with OIS, a 64-megapixel ultra-wide cam and a 48-megapixel telephoto lens. There is also an 11 megapixel selfie camera on the front. It is powered by a 4,950 mAh battery with support for 27 watt wired charging. Unsurprisingly, the new Android 14 is used as the operating system.

The regular Google Pixel 8 has the same chipset and Android version. The selfie camera, storage options and fingerprint sensor are also identical. However, the display is significantly smaller at 6.17 inches and accordingly only has a resolution of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels at 120 Hz. In addition to the 50 megapixel main camera, Google also installs a 12 megapixel ultra wide. Finally, a 4,485 mAh battery that charges at 24 watts with a cable and 12 watts wirelessly supplies power.
