With IP68 water resistance and 7 years of software support, Google emphasizes durability and longevity with the Pixel 8 line. Facial and fingerprint unlock options provide flexible secure authentication.

Pricing starts at €799/$699 for the Pixel 8 and €1099/$999 for the 8 Pro model. This positions them competitively among other flagship Androids. Pre-orders are open now with general availability starting October 13th.

Overall, the Pixel 8 series delivers meaningful upgrades to nearly every aspect, from visuals to photography and performance. With Google’s advanced silicon and software integration, the phones should provide a polished user experience. It will be interesting to see how the new Tensor G3 SoC handles demanding apps and games compared to rivals.
