Pixel 8 Pro Gets 360-Degree Reveal Ahead of October Launch

Google is answering all your Pixel 8 Pro questions on design much before the official debut. The software giant has published an online 360-degree simulator that lets you spin the device around and point out different sensors and ports. The simulator is available on the Pixel 8 Pro’s official page and can be accessed here.

This simulator confirms earlier leaks that showed the upcoming Pixel phones with a flat display and redesigned camera bar. It also reveals that the Pixel 8 Pro will come with a new body-temperature sensor. The simulator primarily backs up renders by Twitter tipster OnLeaks, who was working in collaboration with Smartprix and MySmartPrice, as well as another recent set of renders published on 9to5Google.

As old leaks point out, the Pixel 8 Pro will look similar to the Pixel 7 Pro with its horizontal camera bar on the back. However, this time, the camera visor combines three cameras into one ovular cutout rather than separating the periscope lens from the primary and ultra-wide lenses. This could make the phone look neater and help prevent the camera glass from shattering like on the Pixel 7.

The front of the Pixel 8 Pro is similar to the previous generation, with a hole-punch display, an aluminum frame, and rounded corners. It will continue to have an in-display fingerprint reader, as with the standard Pixel 8. The new model, however, might not come with a curved display and may instead feature a flat panel.

The Pixel 8 Pro will have a USB-C port and a headphone jack on the bottom. It will also have a new 8×8 time-of-flight (ToF) sensor that supposedly will improve the phone’s face unlock capabilities. The software will also offer a new audio magic feature that will mute the sound of your skateboard wheels but preserve speech.

The new Pixel 8 Pro will continue to pack a 3,430 mAh battery, the same as the Pixel 7 Pro. The Pro variant will also continue to support wireless charging. The phone will be available in Sky, Porcelain, and Licorice color options. It will be sold unlocked with a starting price of $799. It will be available for pre-order from October 4 to October 17. It will be officially launched on November 1. There are no details yet on the availability of the Google Pixel 8 Lite, which is expected to be a more affordable version of the Pro.
