According to a recent report by Roland Quandt, the Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro, and Pixel Watch 2 have had even more details leaked ahead of their joint October 4 announcement. As one of the most trusted leakers in the mobile tech industry, it’s highly likely that the information revealed in the WinFuture report will be confirmed by Google next week.
Firstly, let’s talk about the Pixel 8. It is rumored to feature a 6.17-inch AMOLED display and a impressively large 4,600mAh battery, which is quite remarkable considering its compact size. Last year’s Pixel 7 had a 6.3-inch screen and a 4,355mAh battery, so this is a significant improvement. The Pixel 8 will also come with a 120Hz refresh rate, enhancing the display’s sharpness and smoothness. Additionally, it will feature an upgraded Tensor G3 processor and maintain the 8GB RAM, as well as the 128GB and 256GB storage options from the previous model. The European pricing for the base Pixel 8 variant is rumored to be €799, which is higher than the previous iteration. Furthermore, during the pre-order period, the Pixel 8 will reportedly come with a pair of noise-cancelling Pixel Buds Pro at no additional cost.
Moving on to the Pixel 8 Pro, it is expected to share many similarities with its sibling, including the Tensor G3 processor, but it will boast a larger 6.7-inch display. The Pixel 8 Pro will also feature an impressive camera setup with 50MP, 48MP, and 64MP sensors. It will come with a slightly bigger 5,100mAh battery, an upgrade from the Pixel 7 Pro’s 5,000mAh capacity. The Pro model will offer a superior screen resolution of 3120 x 1440 pixels compared to the non-Pro model. Additionally, it will have the option for up to 512GB of internal storage.
Finally, the Pixel Watch 2 will likely bear a striking resemblance to its predecessor. It is rumored to retain the same 1.2-inch AMOLED display and 2GB of RAM, although the storage capacity may decrease from 32GB to 16GB. The watch will feature a newer Qualcomm Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 processor, which will improve performance while minimizing battery consumption. It is also expected to have a slightly larger 306mAh battery and various health-related sensors, including a heart rate monitor and blood oxygen sensor. The Pixel Watch 2 will be water-resistant up to 50 meters and may cost €399 for the Wi-Fi-only variant in European markets.
These leaks have provided interesting insights into Google’s upcoming devices. We anticipate learning more about the Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro, and Pixel Watch 2 during their official announcement on October 4. Stay tuned for further updates.
