Last February, we first saw the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro thanks to @onleaks. This week, it’s that time again. We get a first look at Pixel 8 Proagain, courtesy @onleaks.

On the renders, we see that there are quite a lot of changes. The first notable change is the camera housing on the back. Instead of splitting the camera lenses, Google seems to be putting all three rear cameras under the same piece of glass. I wonder if this will reduce glass breaking problems? Looking at the LED flash on the back, we can see that there is some sort of additional sensor, but the report does not specify what that might be. Maybe a depth sensor? Your guess is as good as ours.

According to the report, the flat display measures 6.52 inches and the corners are getting more and more rounded. The Pixel 7 Pro has a 6.7-inch display, so if those specs are correct, we’re looking at a display that’s slightly smaller. The overall dimensions of the device are shown below:

  • Pixel 7 Pro: 162.9 x 76.6 x 8.9 mm
  • Pixel 8 Pro: 162.6×76.5×8.7 mm

Needless to say, the Pixel 8 Pro shouldn’t look much different than the Pixel 7 Pro in hand. For those interested, the CAD rendering of the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro turned out to be very accurate compared to what Google released in 2022. Given history @onleaks accuracy seems like a safe bet, that’s really what we should expect later this year. Personally, I can dig.

Google is expected to tease both the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro at this year’s Google I/O conference in May. Soon. Last year, Google ran a small teaser campaign for its Pixel phones and also showed them off at I/O. It would be nice if they did the same in 2023.

What do you think of these renders?
