Google is all set to unveil its latest Pixel 8 series on October 4, but a slew of leaks has practically laid bare what to expect. One of the leaks includes a sneak peek at the retail package of the Pixel 8. This leak, shared via a YouTube short from PBKreviews, a channel typically known for disassembly and drop test videos, provides a peek inside the box.
The package reportedly includes a USB C to C cable, a USB C to A adapter, a quick start guide, and, most notably, the Pixel 8 itself in a "Hazel" color variant. This particular unit comes with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM. Additionally, a detailed comparison chart, allegedly from Google, reveals the specs for both the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, along with their expected prices.
Speaking of prices, the leak indicates that the Pixel 8 is set to be priced at $700, £700, or €800, while the Pixel 8 Pro will continue last year's pricing at $900, £1,000, or €1,100. An interesting twist is that pre-orders for these phones will come with some enticing bundled accessories.
Buyers of the standard Pixel 8 will receive Pixel Buds Pro, while those opting for the Pixel 8 Pro will get the Pixel Watch 2. The latter is a particularly intriguing offering, with a standalone price expected to be around £350. It's worth noting that this smartwatch is set to be unveiled alongside the new Pixel phones.
While the official launch date is just around the corner, these leaks have already given us a pretty clear picture of what to expect from Google's upcoming flagship phones and their accompanying accessories.
