The highly anticipated Google Pixel 8 is set to make its debut at the upcoming Made by Google event on October 4. Reports suggest that Google is placing a strong emphasis on enhancing the Pixel’s camera capabilities, aiming to reclaim its position as a leading camera phone in the market.
So what can we expect from the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro? Well, rumors are swirling about hints of some new features, including the magic of Google’s machine learning and some hardware upgrades, Tom’s Guide reports.
If you’re looking to pick up a new phone soon, here’s a quick look at the top 4 Pixel rumors to get you excited for the upcoming release.
1. Powerful new chip: Tensor G3
Google’s next phone will feature the Tensor G3 chip, designed in-house. The Pixel 6’s Tensor chip focused on AI features, making Pixels unique. With the Tensor G3, Google aims to improve performance and address previous concerns about its chips lagging behind competitors, according to Tom’s Guide.
2. Camera sensor update
While the Pixel 8’s camera setup won’t change dramatically, the Pixel 8 Pro’s ultra-wide-angle camera could get a boost to a 48-megapixel sensor. Both models are rumored to use the Samsung Isocell GN2 sensor in their primary 50MP cameras. This update means better low-light photos and 8K video support.
3. Extended software support
Good news for Pixel fans: Google plans to offer five years of software updates, beating out many Android competitors. This extended support means you can enjoy the latest software features for longer.
4. Display improvements
The Pixel 8 models might have slightly smaller screens, but don’t worry, it’s not a big difference. The Pixel 8 Pro might have a flat panel instead of a curved one. The real improvement is in display brightness, with the Pixel 8 reaching 1,400 nits and the Pixel 8 Pro going up to 1,600 nits, making them brighter and better.
In short, get ready for the Google Pixel 8, which promises exciting improvements in performance, camera capabilities, software support, and brighter displays. So remember to mark October 4th in your calendar.
