Live images of the Google Pixel 8 Pro have been leaked by some guy on Reddit. God bless his soul for breaking NDA. However, the leaked photo was deleted as the leaker didn’t do a good job hiding the location or his face! The leaked photo is from a phone sent for testing by Google’s device team.
The leaked images validate some of the earlier leaks and rumors and provide a closer look at the device’s design. The images show that the Pixel 8 Pro will have a unique patterned design on the back, instead of the traditional “G” logo found on previous Pixel phones. The rear camera module is also unified into a pill-shaped form factor, and it houses three cameras, a microphone, an LED flash, and an IR thermometer sensor.
The bootloader screen of the Pixel 8 Pro reveals some additional details about the device. It mentions the codename “husky” and the “recurrent” bootloader. The text “Zuma” on the back refers to the Tensor G3 chip, which will power the Pixel 8 Pro. This custom chip, developed by Google, is expected to enhance performance and efficiency.
The bootloader screen also reveals that the Pixel 8 Pro will be equipped with 12GB of Samsung LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of SK Hynix storage. The device’s camera configuration is said to feature a 50MP primary sensor, a 64MP ultra-wide camera, and a telephoto lens capable of 5x zoom.
The Google Pixel 8 series is expected to launch later this year, probably in October.
