The Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro will be released in the following months. While no official information has been removed, the phone's picture was found on Google's Google Subscriptions & Services promo page. It appears to have been dropped before we could view it. The Google Pixel 8 Pro phone is claimed to be Porcelain White in colour, with a triple back camera configuration. At first appearance, it is comparable to its predecessor, the Pixel 7 Pro. Pixel 8 Pro is also expected to receive further years of OS upgrades.
A Google Pixel 8 Pro photograph was initially found on the Google Store website by X (previously Twitter) user Android Setting (@android_setting). Android expert Mishaal Rahman published it on the microblogging network before Google erased it. The picture on the page depicts the smartphone in the hue Porcelain White. At first sight, it resembles last year's Pixel 7 Pro. However, unlike the Pixel 7 Pro, which debuted alongside the standard Pixel 7 in 2022, all three cameras appear to be in a single pill-shaped camera island.
The Google Pixel 8 Pro picture also suggests the presence of another sensor near the LED flash. However, because the image is low-resolution, it is impossible to determine its nature. The Pixel 7 Pro was released last year with a triple rear camera arrangement that includes a telephoto camera lens with optical zoom capabilities and Google's Super Res Zoom function, which leverages hardware and software to optimise image quality.
Google may boost the amount of OS updates
Google may boost the amount of OS updates for its forthcoming Tensor-powered devices. According to the magazine, the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro will receive five years of OS upgrades.
If the report's contents are correct, Google will outperform Samsung, Oppo, and OnePlus in terms of software support. For sure of their devices, these firms have guaranteed four OS upgrades and one year of security patches. Google's older phones will all receive three operating system updates and two years of security fixes.
It was previously rumoured that the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro would forgo traditional SIM card slots instead of eSIM functionality. This indicates that the smartphones may launch in limited locations as eSIM-only smartphones, allowing customers to connect to the network without a physical SIM card. In the United States, Apple iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models only support eSIM.
