Google has officially revealed some details about the upcoming Pixel 8 Pro, which is set to launch on October 4. Recently, the design of the phone has been confirmed through 3D renders on Google’s Pixel Phone Simulator website (via Dylan Roussel), matching earlier leaks.
The Pixel 8 Pro features rounded edges instead of flat ones and retains the same rear camera setup as the Pixel 7 series. The front of the phone has a centered punch-hole camera with very slim bezels. It will be available in Sky, Porcelain, and Licorice color options.
Interestingly, the phone will have a SIM card tray, contrary to previous rumors suggesting it would only support eSIM. Another notable feature is the inclusion of a body temperature sensor located near the camera strip on the back. This sensor will allow users to measure their body temperature by placing the phone close to their forehead.
While these details confirm some aspects of the Pixel 8 Pro, there’s still much more to learn as the launch date approaches. Both the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are expected to feature the Tensor G3 chipset, improved performance, camera enhancements, 6.17-inch and 6.7-inch displays for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro respectively, and storage options of up to 512GB.
Stay tuned for further updates on the Pixel 8 series, and feel free to share your thoughts on the Pixel 8 Pro’s design in the comments.
