First Look at the Pixel 8 Pro Ahead of Google I/O 2023

Google is rumored to reveal the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro at Google I/O 2023, its annual developer conference set to kick off on May 10th, as well as the Pixel 7a, its upcoming midrange smartphone. Now, we have our first look at the Pixel 8 Pro thanks to @OnLeaks and Smartprix, who have shared CAD-based renders of the device.[0]

The Pixel 8 Pro measures 162.6 x 76.5 x 8.7 mm and is about 12 mm thick when including the camera bump. It has a large 6.52-inch flat display and is slightly smaller than the Pixel 7 Pro due to its rounded display corners. The power and volume buttons are on the right side and the USB Type-C port, speaker, and SIM tray are on the bottom.[1]

The camera bar includes a triple camera setup merged into one lozenge-shaped cluster, and there’s an additional sensor to the right.[2] It is unknown what this sensor is for, but it could be for depth-sensing, autofocus, or a LiDAR sensor.[3]

Under the hood, the Pixel 8 Pro is expected to be powered by a new Google Tensor processor produced by Samsung, the Tensor G3 chipset, built on the unannounced Samsung Exynos 2300 CPU and 3nm node technology.[4] This chipset is an upgrade from the 5nm die used in the Pixel 6 and 7 and will provide improved speed and better power efficiency.

The Pixel 8 Pro renders show a design that looks similar to the Pixel 7 Pro but with some obvious and welcome changes, such as a flatter display and a more rounded design.[0] We can also see antenna lines on the frame, suggesting that the phone will come with a metal chassis.[5]

The Pixel 8 Pro has been rumored to be unveiled in either September or October this year. While other details are still unclear, we can be sure that Google will give us a first official look at the Pixel 8 series during Google I/O 2023.
