Exploring the Leaked Google Pixel 8 Pro Prototype: Insights and Analysis

Even though every company dislikes leaks, they seem to be becoming inevitable in recent years. Many companies suffer from leaks before the final product is released. However, Google seems to be the most affected company in this aspect. Google products easily get leaked to such an extent that the company is forced to announce some products before the planned date. This was to help stay ahead of the leaks curve, but it looks like the company is still lagging behind.

A new prototype image of the upcoming Google Pixel 8 Pro has leaked recently on Reddit. Both the image and the account that posted it were deleted a few moments later. Usually when this happens, it usually indicates the authenticity of the leak.

Based on the details in the leaked image, the device is clearly the pro version of the Google Pixel 8 smartphone. Looking at the back, you could see the iconic horizontal camera bump with the triple camera lenses, including a Telephoto lens.

Also, the device is clearly a prototype version which is inscribed on the sticker placed behind it. It also says that the device is for testing and evaluation purposes only. The product version field also displays “Husky”. This is the codename which is widely known as the codename for the Google Pixel 8 Pro. The prototype has a 12GB of a Samsung LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of UFS storage which was manufactured by SK Hynix.

Already, GSMArena has reported on some of the specifications that we are to expect to see in upcoming Pixel 8 Pro. According to the tech reporting website, the Pixel 8 Pro will feature the same screen size as its predecessor. The company will also reduce the resolution slightly. This further reduces the pixel density from 512ppi to 490ppi.

This device is not made for sale since it is just a prototype. Therefore, the final retail product may end up coming with some changes from what we see now. Also, this prototype version has some weird patterns on the back glass which does not resemble something that Google is going to bring to the final product. The pattern may probably be there to detect leaks. The color of the device appears somewhat similar to that of the camera island. This is also unlikely to be the case for the final product.

Ahead of the official announcement, there has already been a lot of rumors concerning the specifications of the Pixel 8 Pro. GSMArena has reported that the handset will come with an infrared thermometer positioned beneath the LED flashlight. We also expect the Pixel 8 Pro to feature a 6.7-inch 1,344 x 2,992 120 Hz OLED display and an upgraded 50MP main sensor. The main camera will be a Samsung ISOCELL GN2 sensor with an additional 64MP Sony IMX787 ultrawide sensor. However, the third camera will remain the same 5x optical zoom lens and 11MP front-facing camera.

How Much will the Google Pixel 8 Pro Cost?

A new report from GSMArena suggests that the upcoming smartphone from Google will cost more than its predecessor. The website states that the vanilla model will have a price increase of 50 to $100. This price hike which is already seen in the Pixel 7a which launched recently. Already, the pro model is usually $300 more expensive than the base model. Taking this into consideration, the Pixel 8 Pro will keep the pace with its $300 difference.

GSMArena also reported that the Pixel 8 Pro will likely launch in early October just like Google did for the Pixel 7 series.
