The Mountain View, California-based tech giant Google has revealed the precise date of the formal release of its Pixel 8 range of premium smartphones. The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro variants are anticipated to be part of the series. For the past few weeks, various rumours have circulated regarding the phone’s key features and other information. The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are said to have been listed on the FCC certification website weeks before their release.
After Apple revealed the launch date for its iPhone 15 series Google has now officially confirmed the Pixel 8 series’ launch date. The launch date of October 4 has been announced via X . With a base and a Pro model, the Pixel 8 Series is planned to succeed the Pixel 7 series when it launches on October 4. The event, which is said to be being hosted by the corporation, would begin that day at 10 AM local time in New York.
The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, weeks before their release, apparently went to the FCC certification website. According to the listing, the devices’ FCC listing indicates that there may be five different varieties available when they go on sale. GKWS6, G9BQD, GZPF0, GPJ41, and G1MNW are stated as model numbers for the Pixel 8, while G1MNW is reportedly the model number for the Pixel 8 Pro. Furthermore, it’s expected that the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro will support Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 6E, and both Sub6 and mmWave 5G connectivity.
The Pixel 8 Pro’s colour options and rear design were recently discovered on Google’s promo page for Google Subscriptions & Services. Porcelain White has been used as a colour scheme to tease the smartphone. It’s anticipated to have a single pill-shaped camera island (similar to its predecessors) with a triple back camera system. In addition to this, the existence of a further sensor that sits adjacent to the LED flash has also been suggested.
Additionally, it has been speculated that Google’s camera app on the Pixel 8 Series will get a new user interface. The upcoming series is likely to feature AI-powered cameras.
In some areas, the Google Pixel 8 series is expected to launch as an eSIM-only smartphone. The leaked renderings claimed that the left side’s SIM card slots were absent.
