Google’s upcoming Pixel 8 series, consisting of the vanilla Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, is expected to be revealed at the I/O 2023 event in May. With the event drawing near, more leaks about the new Pixel models have emerged. Recently, alleged case renders of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro have been shared online, featuring cutouts for cameras, microphones, the power button, volume rockers, speaker, and USB Type-C port. The renders suggest that the new models will have a similar design language to their predecessor, the Pixel 7 series.
According to a report by Techgoing, the Pixel 8’s case render indicates a raised camera bar with curved edges, housing a dual rear camera unit, a microphone, and an LED flash. The Pixel 8 Pro’s case also shows a horizontal camera bar with curved edges, carrying a triple rear camera unit and an LED flash. These renders align with previous leaks and rumors.
Google’s I/O 2023 event will take place on May 10, during which the tech giant is expected to unveil the Pixel 8 series, Pixel 7a, and possibly even the Pixel Fold. The new Pixel handsets are expected to be powered by a new Tensor chip based on Samsung’s Exynos 2300 SoC. The Pixel 8 is said to have a 6.16-inch display, while the Pixel 8 Pro may feature a 6.7-inch panel. Both models are expected to come with a center-aligned hole-punch cutout for the selfie sensor.
