Despite Google’s official launch of the Pixel 8 series on October 4th, the ever-reliable tech world of smartphone leaks has already revealed nearly all of the important details about these eagerly anticipated devices.

This includes everything from their detailed specifications and pricing to the rather intimate experience of unboxing, which has been shared in online unboxing videos. Check out the details.

The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro were unboxed in videos posted by the YouTube channel PBKreviews, which is known for its meticulous post-launch teardowns. The Pixel 8 is unboxed in Hazel in the video, while the Pixel 8 Pro is unboxed in Obsidian.

Both phones arrive neatly nestled inside their retail boxes, accompanied by standard accessories: a USB Type-C cable, a USB-A to C adapter, a user manual, and, most importantly, the phones themselves.

One notable omission is the charging adapter, a trend that appears to be gaining traction among smartphone manufacturers.

Google Pixel 8 and 8 Pro Geekbench Scores

In terms of performance, the Pixel 8 Pro appeared on the benchmarking platform Geekbench, where it was put to the test. It received 1,760 points for the single-core test and 4,442 points for the multi-core test.

These results are a slight improvement over the Pixel 7 Pro, which received 1,444 and 3,793 points, respectively.

Nonetheless, the Tensor-powered Pixel phones lag behind their high-end Android counterparts, with devices like the Realme GT 5 packing a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 scoring 2,011 and 5,305 points in the same tests. The scores are lower than the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra or any other flagship smartphone in the price range.

One important factor is Google’s decision to avoid powerful CPU cores for their Tensor chips. The Pixel 8 Pro is powered by the Tensor G3, which has a novel 1+4+4 core configuration with more modern cores than the Tensor G2 that powers the Pixel 7 Pro.

These cores, however, lag behind the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 cores found in other flagship Android phones.

Overall, the leaked unboxing videos and Geekbench scores show the Pixel 8 series offering mild improvements over its predecessor, the Pixel 7 series.

The true litmus test will be how these devices perform in real-world scenarios and whether their distinguishing features, such as the new Tensor G3 chip and Android 14, can compensate for these minor performance gains.
