Get ready to upgrade your pixel phone? because Google’s Pixel 8 series is about to hit the market! Leaked the beans on the basic version’s specs, and it’s looking like Google is sticking with its self-developed Tensor G3 chip.
There’s more! Rumor has it that Google is gearing up to release its own fully self-developed chip, the Tensor G5, in 2025. This means saying goodbye to Samsung’s influence on the chips and hello to TSMC’s production.
Now let’s talk about the Google Pixel 8’s specs, phone offering a 6.17-inch FHD+ OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, equipped with ultrasonic fingerprint unlocking for extra security. Storage options: 8GB+128GB or 8GB+256GB, running Android 14.
The camera is where the Pixel 8 shines, featuring a 50-megapixel Samsung GN2 main camera with OIS optical stabilization and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. Comes with a 4485mAh battery that supports 24W wired fast charging and 12W wireless fast charging.
So how much will this cost you? The 8GB+128GB priced at $649, a 8GB+256GB comes in at $699. While the design isn’t too different from its Pixel 7, 8 has a more rounded shape that sets it apart.
