Photos of the Google Pixel 8 Pro smartphone prototype, which is expected to be unveiled this fall, have been leaked on the internet. Shortly after being posted to the Reddit forums, these photos were deleted along with the account that posted them, suggesting they are not fake.
The photos confirm that in the new model, Google uses a configuration of three cameras on an “island” in the shape of an elongated tablet, placed on a strip that traditionally surrounds the back. Rumor has it that the round hole under the row of LED flashes belongs to an infrared thermometer.
The labels on the back indicate that this is a “test/evaluation only” prototype. The “Product Edition” field reads “husky”, the code name for the Pixel 8 Pro. This prototype features 12GB of LPDDR5 memory from Samsung and 128GB of UFS flash memory from SK Hynix.
Since it’s a prototype, we can expect the final version of the Pixel 8 Pro to be slightly different, although we can already conclude that the design of the new model is in many ways close to the design of its predecessor .
According to insiders, the Pixel 8 Pro will have a 6.7-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2992 × 1344 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. On the back of the smartphone there is a camera with a 50 MP Samsung ISOCELL GN2 sensor, a 64 MP Sony IMX787 sensor with an ultra wide angle lens and a periscope telephoto module with a 48 MP ISOCELL GM5 sensor and 5x optical zoom. According to rumors, the resolution of the front camera will be the same as its predecessor – 11 megapixels. Also reported is the Google Tensor G3 chip, a 4950mAh battery and support for Wi-Fi 7 networks.
