The Pixel 8 Pro’s new camera setup is shown in leaked photos


Poor Google doesn’t have much luck keeping its unreleased Pixel devices under wraps, and the Pixel 8 Pro is no exception. Two leaked photos of Google’s upcoming Pixel flagship were posted on Reddit on Monday, giving us our first look at the front and back of what appears to be an actual Pixel 8 Pro out in the wild. Those original images were quickly removed from Reddit, but thankfully, not before. droid life I could take a copy.

The design is recognizable as a Pixel device, although there are some notable differences compared to its predecessor, the Pixel 7 Pro. The photo of the back of the Pixel 8 Pro gives us a clear view of the new triple camera setup, which is now housed entirely in a single glass oval, as opposed to the separate telephoto lens on the 7 Pro. A new sensor can also be seen below the flash that can measure the user’s body temperature. There is no additional information on the camera’s specifications, although previous leaks suggest that it will be equipped with a 50-megapixel main sensor, a 64-megapixel ultra-wide angle, and a 48-megapixel telephoto lens.

There’s also a label on the back that identifies the phone as a prototype test unit marked with “Zuma,” the codename for Google’s Tensor G3 processor. A pattern of lines can be seen on the bottom half of the phone, but it’s not entirely clear what it might be, or if it will be included in the final design later this year.

The image showing the front of the Pixel 8 Pro shows the phone’s quick start screen, which mentions “Husky” (the rumored codename for the Pixel 8 Pro) and lists 12GB of Samsung LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It also seems that Google has scrapped the curved screen in favor of a flat one.

This isn’t the first time we’ve gotten a look at the phone: renders of the Pixel 8 Pro with a similar design appeared in March, and the phone made its first unofficial appearance in a leaked internal Google video in May. Most of what we’re seeing in these new hands-on images reinforces the changes identified in those previous leaks before their official announcement later this year.
