The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro smartphones, scheduled for a grand reveal on October 4th, have been at the center of a whirlwind of leaks, leaving Google with little left to unveil come launch day. In the latest leak, attributed to Kamila Wojciechowska, we've gained access to the Google Store pages for these upcoming devices, essentially validating much of the previously circulating speculations. Interestingly, this leak also spills the beans on some enticing pre-order bonuses for the Pixel 8 Pro.
According to the shared Google Store pages, prospective Pixel 8 Pro buyers will be in for a treat with a complimentary Pixel Watch 2 when they pre-order the Pro model. It's important to note that this tantalizing offer appears exclusive to the Pro variant, leaving us curious about Google's strategy for standard Pixel 8 pre-orders.
In parallel to the Pixel 8 phone launch, the Pixel Watch 2 is set to make its debut. The smart wearable is expected to bring significant improvements over its predecessor. It's touted to introduce enhanced security features and leverage Fitbit's stress management system, utilizing body-response tracking to gauge stress levels. Additionally, the Pixel Watch 2 is anticipated to maintain the impressive 24-hour battery life seen in its predecessor.
Shifting focus to the Pixel 8 Pro, it boasts a 6.7-inch LTPO OLED display delivering QHD+ resolution and a fluid 120Hz refresh rate. Beneath the surface, the device relies on Google's new Tensor G3 chipset, available in configurations offering up to 12GB of RAM and a capacious 512GB of storage. Leaked details also hint at a camera setup on the rear, which includes a 50MP primary sensor, a 64MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 48MP telephoto shooter. Recent leaks have also suggested a starting price of $999 for the Pixel 8 Pro in the United States, adding to the excitement surrounding its impending launch.
