If Google sticks to its usual schedule, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro will be officially unveiled at an October event at their California headquarters. There are still three months to go until then, so the rumor mill is slowly picking up speed. A new leak from the usually reliable tipster Yogesh Brar now brings a full list of the Google Pixel 8 Pro’s key specs.
The upcoming second Google flagship for 2023 alongside the Google Pixel Fold is said to have a 6.7-inch LTPO OLED display with a QHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The drive is again taken over by the Google Tensor G3 chipset in cooperation with the dedicated Titan security chip. We also get 12 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of storage and a 4,950 mAh battery that charges with a maximum of 27 watts via cable. As usual, the Google Pixel 8 Pro will start with Android 14 and have an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor in the display. There is also an infrared temperature sensor.
The camera system consists of a 50-megapixel wide camera with OIS, a 64-megapixel ultra-wide sensor and a 48-megapixel telephoto lens. An 11 megapixel camera should be responsible for selfies. According to earlier rumours, Google is installing an ISOCELL GN2 from Samsung. There’s also a Sony IMX787 for the ultrawide and an ISOCELL GN5 telesensor. A new time-of-flight (ToF) sensor should help with focusing.
If these specs sound familiar, they’re very similar to last year’s Google Pixel 7 Pro specs. Therefore, it doesn’t look as if the Google Pixel 8 Pro will be a big update. Despite this, the Pixel 8 will reportedly be more expensive than the Pixel 7.
