However, Google does a good job by making them optimize enough to compete in the flagship segment. The exclusive features, Google Camera algorithms, and seamless Android updates are the main factors that make these devices attractive for enthusiasts.

The new Google Pixel 8 series smartphones are incremental upgrades over the past generation. However, they’re still stand as significant upgrades for this lineup, especially with the Google Tensor G3. Since there is one month ahead of the launch, Google will likely provide more teasers to showcase the phone’s specs and build the anticipation.
