Keeping up with the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro leaks can be difficult knowing that each phone won’t be arriving for months. Leaks always start with Google products first, and sometimes the story changes from leak to leak. In the latest data dump, we get a list of Pixel 8 Pro specs that match previous data dumps and should be noted.
The information about the Pixel 8 Pro that we are about to talk about comes from Yogesh Brar on Twitter, who previously leaked a list of Pixel 8 specs and has been in the info-delivery game for some time now. While nothing is confirmed at this point, it’s at least worth considering as a minimum of details for Google’s next big phone.
According to this report, Google will again include a 6.7″ OLED display with up to 120Hz refresh rate. We will get the Tensor G3 chip (previously rumored), 12GB of RAM on all models, and storage options from at least 128 GB and 256 GB. I’d be surprised if Google didn’t release a 512GB model as well.
The rest of the specs are said to include a temperature sensor (which we knew), an ultrasonic fingerprint reader (we didn’t know), a 4950mAh battery with 27W charging, and a triple rear camera. That camera should feature a 50MP main sensor with 64MP ultra-wide and 48MP telephoto sensors for travel. That all matches up with this earlier Pixel 8 camera report.
The only items here suggest an October release and Android 14 as software, both of which make sense. Google has released phones in October since launching the Pixel line and tends to ship the newest version of Android out of the box.
In short, the Pixel 8 Pro sounds like a proper flagship that has an odd temperature sensor that we hope has unexpected uses from Google. We love these renders, though, as well as these real-life photos – those rounded corners set me up.
