What To Expect From The Google October Event?

The media invite mentions about the Pixel portfolio of devices. Hence, it is safe to speculate that the company might stick to the Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro, and the second-generation Pixel Watch. The leaked specifications and images of these devices have been doing rounds on the internet for quite some time. Most recently, we’ve also seen an official picture of the Pixel 8 Pro show up on the Google Store.

Pixel 8 Leaked Specifications

The smartphone should feature a 6.17-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with support for 120Hz refresh rate and a peak brightness of 1,400 nits. Under the hood, the new Pixel device will run on Google’s in-house Tensor G3 chipset, alongside 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. Like the Pixel 7, the Pixel 8 has a dual-camera setup with a 50MP primary camera and a 12MP ultrawide camera.

Other phone specifications include an in-display fingerprint scanner, a USB-C port, IP68 water and dust resistance rating, and 24W fast wired charging.

Pixel 8 Pro Specifications

Earlier this year, Smartprix shared the first CAD renders of the Pixel 8 Pro. The phone will feature a larger 6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED display with support for up to 120Hz refresh rate and a higher peak brightness of 1,600 nits. Like the Pixel 8, the Pixel 8 Pro will also run on Tensor G3 processor, albeit with 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. This time, users can expect significant changes in the camera department, as the Pixel 8 Pro could offer a 50MP primary sensor, a 64MP ultrawide sensor, and a 48MP sensor for up to 5x optical zoom.

While other features like the in-display fingerprint scanner, an IP68 rating, and a USB-C port remain similar to the Pixel 8, the Pro version could feature a larger 4,950 mAh battery with support for 27W wired charging.
