Google Pixel 8 Pro live shots leaked, reveals design, key specifications
In March, leaked CAD renders of the Pixel 8 Pro provided an initial glimpse of its design. Contrasting the previous year’s Pixel 7 Pro, which featured a horizontal camera bar with two cameras in a pill-shaped module and a separate third camera, the CAD renders unveiled that the Pixel 8 Pro would incorporate a unified pill-shaped module for all three cameras. Additionally, an enigmatic sensor on the camera bar piqued curiosity, and a subsequently leaked render confirmed it to be an FIR (Far Infrared) thermometer. Recently, a Reddit user uploaded live shots of the Pixel 8 Pro, and these images align with the previous leaks and rumors. In addition, it has also revealed a few key details of the Pixel 8 Pro.
The Reddit user claimed that the images belong to a prototype of the Pixel 8 Pro sourced from the device team at Google for testing. As can be seen, the device has a patterned design instead of the “G” logo found on Pixel phones.
In addition, the Pixel 8 Pro’s bootloader screen mentions the “husky” codename and “recurrent” bootloader. The “Zuma” text mentioned on the back is the codename of the Tensor G3 chip, which will power the device.
The bootloader screen further reveals that the Pixel 8 Pro has 12 GB of Samsung LPDDR5 RAM and 128 GB of SK Hynix storage. The leaked image, which showcases the rear design of the phone, reveals a unified pill-shaped camera module along with a microphone, an LED flash, and an IR thermometer sensor.
