The Future Unfolds: Google Pixel 8 and 8 Pro with Tensor G3

Hearing so much about the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro feels like they've been with us for a long time, but now they're finally official.

The main contribution to this is the Tensor G3 chipset – which is built on Samsung's 4 nanometer process. It has a 9-core processor, which includes one Cortex-X3 prime core, four Cortex-A715 cores, and four Cortex-A510 cores. The Pixel 8 has 8GB of RAM, while the Pro bumps that up to 12GB. Both Pixel 8 phones are IP68 water and dust resistant and feature fingerprint and face unlock.

The Pixel 8 Pro features a 6.7-inch QHD+ LTPO 120Hz OLED display with a peak brightness of 2,400 nits and is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus 2. You have the option to choose from three colors – Blue, Obsidian, and Beige.

All this news is very exciting and we are all proud of this new technological achievement that will make our smartphone experience even better. We're all dying to make the arrival of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro a spectacle!

Three cameras sit on the back of the Pixel 8 Pro - a 50MP Octa-PD (phase-detect autofocus) wide shooter with OIS, a new 48MP Quad-PD ultrawide, and a 48MP Quad-PD 5x zoom camera with up to 30X Super-Res digital zoom. The front camera is a new 10.5MP unit with a wide field of view.

There's a new skin temperature sensor next to the cameras that's a Pixel 8 Pro-exclusive. The sensor is reportedly a Melexis MLX90632 unit and its sole purpose is to read temperature - there won't be any clever photography tricks with this one.

Speaking of photography tricks, the new Pixel 8 series has Photo Unblur, Magic Eraser, Best Take, and Macro Focus (which uses the ultrawide). The Pixel 8 Pro has the new Pro Controls feature, which the 8 lacks.

Finally, the Pixel 8 Pro has a 5,050mAh battery with 30W wired charging and 23W wireless charging.

Moving to the Pixel 8, which is now 10g lighter and a bit smaller than its predecessor thanks to a move to a smaller 6.2-inch FHD+ display.

That display is better in every way - it's a brighter panel at 2,000 nits peak brightness, and finally has a 120hz refresh rate (it can joggle between 60Hz and 120Hz). It has Gorilla Glass Victus on top.

The Pixel 8 comes in Hazel, Obsidian, or Rose.

The Pixel 8 also gets a new ultrawide, though it isn't the same as the Pro. It's a 12MP unit with autofocus and Macro abilities. Next to it is a 50MP Octa-PD main camera with 8x Super-Res digital zoom. The Pixel 8 has the same 10.5MP selfie camera as well.

The Pixel 8 has a 4,575mAh battery with 27W wired and 18W wireless charging.

Both new Google Pixel 8 phones come with a free VPN by Google One and a promise of 7 years of OS and security updates, which is the longest in the Android realm. As a matter of fact, the latest iOS 17 was only available to devices up to 5 years old.

The 128GB Google Pixel 8 starts at €800/$700/INR76,000, while the 128GB Google Pixel 8 Pro is €1,100/$1,000/INR107,000. You'll get a free Pixel Buds Pro with a Pixel 8 purchase, and a Pixel Watch 2 with a Pixel 8 Pro purchase in Europe and the US. In India you are only getting 50% discount on the accessories.
