The two largest tech events of this year are still to come. In contrast to Google, which is predicted to introduce its new Pixel 8 series phones in October, Apple is anticipated to debut its most recent iPhone 15 series in September this year. Although neither company has officially announced the precise launch date for the new 5G phones, leaks have given us a solid idea of what to expect.

The Pixel 7 Pro and 7 feature distinct camera processing. However, they share a single 50 megapixels primary sensor, which is Samsung ISOCELL GN1. The Pixel 7 Pro has a 12MP 126˚ ultrawide camera which can also take macro shots, and a 48MP telephoto camera with 5x zoom. A 12MP 114˚ ultrawide snapper accompanies the regular Pixel 7’s primary camera.

Pixel 8: Price Leaks

According to a tweet, the Google Pixel 8 could cost $649 or $699 in the US. According to the leak, the business may decide to raise the cost of its next-generation Pixel phones compared to the model from a year ago. Recall that the Google Pixel 7’s initial price for the 128GB variant was $599. The new version will cost more when it is released if the tech giant is genuinely preparing to increase the price. In the upcoming months, the price component will be more clearly understood.

The changes the new phone will offer may be the source of the Google Pixel’s price hike. It is anticipated to include improved cameras and a display.

Of course, a more polished performance is also anticipated. With that, the leaks have provided some insight into potential features of the future Pixel phones.

Pixel 8: Expected Specs

The smaller 6.17-inch 120Hz AMOLED screen on the Google Pixel is said to have a peak brightness of 1,400 nits and a pixel density of 427. It is likely going to be powered by Google’s Tensor G3 processor. It is anticipated to include the most recent UFS 4.0 storage version for easy file access. The device will come pre-installed with Android 14.

The Google Pixel’s back camera could include a Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor, a 12-megapixel IMX386 ultra-wide sensor, and a 50-megapixel GN2 primary sensor. According to the leaks, the front may consist of an 11-megapixel camera. The next Pixel 8 will include a 4,485mAh battery that supports 20W rapid wired charging technology. Google is anticipated to support 12W wireless charging technology as well.

Pixel 8: Software and Features

A new “Adaptive torch” function that adjusts the flash strength based on the scene and other inputs, such as the capture mode being utilized, may be included in the Pixel 8 pair. Overexposed photos should be avoided, and low-light photography should be improved.

The phones might also include a “Segmentation AWB” function that would employ AI to partition the scene into various segments and apply different processing to each part. A video unblur capability may also be added to the Pixel series.

The Google Pixel 8 should launch just in time for Google to unveil Android 14 as its upcoming operating system iteration. We anticipate some smart software magics in the forthcoming edition now that Tiramisu is available on most Pixel phones.

With themed icons and color vector fonts – the Material You design philosophy – Google made some visual enhancements in the most recent Android OS. More of the same is likely in the upcoming edition. There have been some interesting breakthroughs in AI language algorithms, and Google will take this further in the forthcoming Pixel series.

According to one interesting source, the Pixel series will have satellite communication capabilities similar to the iPhone 14 series. It’s considered a feature integrated into the forthcoming Android 14 OS, although it’ll first emerge on the Pixel series, as is customary. A hidden feature named Advanced Memory Protection could be another first for the Pixel. Essentially, it is a feature aimed at reducing errors in memory handling in native programming languages, resulting in fewer software vulnerabilities.

Pixel 8: Price History

The Phone’s price is another major mystery; it’s simply too early to have leaks about it. At present, we can extrapolate based on Pixel phone pricing over the last few years.

Model128GB ($)256GB ($)512GB ($)
1Pixel 6599699
2Pixel 6 Pro899999
3Pixel 6a449
4Pixel 7599699
5Pixel 7 Pro8999991,099
6Pixel 7a499 (rumored price)
7Pixel 8599 (rumored price)699 (rumored price)
8Pixel 8 Pro899 (rumored price)999 (rumored price)1,099 (rumored price)

Google’s Pixel phone pricing has remained very stable over the years. The earlier generation of Pixels began at $599 for the basic 128GB Pixel model, and if we’re to make any guesses, the Pixel 8 will stay within that figure.

In 2023, a Pro model without a microSD card port and a 512GB version may be out of the question. Thus, the Pixel 8 Pro may acquire the 512GB memory option. We don’t know the price, but it should be a $100 increase based on prior years’ rationale. Let’s wait and watch what Google releases this year.
