New leak reiterates Google Pixel 8 Pro specs

Vlad, 17 July 2023

If Google sticks to its usual schedule, and so far we've seen no indication it plans not to, then the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro should be getting official at a special event taking place in California in October.

And yet, we've already seen multiple leaks regarding the upcoming duo, even though we're still about three months away from that point. Today, a full list of the Pixel 8 Pro's most important specs is doing the rounds, so let's dive in.

The more premium of Google's 2023 flagship slab-style devices is said to sport a 6.7-inch QHD+ 120 Hz LTPO OLED display, the Google Tensor G3 SoC with dedicated Titan security chip, 12GB of RAM, 128/256GB of storage, and a 4,950 mAh battery with support for 27W wired charging.

It will of course run Android 14 from the day it comes out, and will get an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner, as well as a new gimmick: an infrared temperature sensor, which would have been all the rage back in 2020 at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The rear camera system consists of three sensors, a 50 MP main with OIS, a 64 MP ultrawide, and a 48 MP telephoto. Selfies are taken care of by an 11 MP snapper, allegedly. Past rumors talked about the main sensor being Samsung's ISOCELL GN2, the telephoto the ISOCELL GM5, and the ultrawide being Sony's IMX787. A new time of flight (ToF) sensor should aid with focusing.

You wouldn't be alone in thinking these specs are very similar to those of the Pixel 7 Pro from last year, so it looks like the next iteration will be an evolution, definitely not a revolution.

No! You mean a 12.5MP wide, a 16MP ultrawide, and a 12MP telephoto into which you can maybe zoom 2x to get a 3MP result-like on the Apple 14iPhone Pro Max 2x zoom Tony Northrup complained about!

Ok and? We will gladly do so. Saves money AND we get fast charging. Win win. You are just hopelessly trying to "sh!t coat" something that is obviously good. It is basically like saying that only weak people go see the doctor. ...
