Google has finally spilled the beans on its upcoming Pixel 8 phone launch, and we know that the Pixel 8 Pro and Pixel Watch 2 will be coming early next month. On October 4, Google will finally unveil the new devices, according to posts on Google’s Instagram account and online store. 

While Google has been quiet about the upcoming flagship phones so far, posts today on its Made by Google Instagram account confirmed the two new phones and showed off a Pixel 8 Pro and a Pixel 8 in porcelain white and a pinkish rose color, respectively. The two phones are discernible by the extra camera lens on the back of the Pro model, and the smaller size of the base model.

The Pro model also seems to have an extra feature on the camera bar, compared to both the Pixel 8 and the older Pixel 7 Pro. Leaks have suggested this could be a temperature sensor, which might even be used to check a person’s body temp, among other possibilities. Otherwise, there are no significant new features that are distinguishable from the 360-degree view in the Insta post.

The Pixel 8 has rounder corners, and that’s about it

The design of the new phones seems slightly updated from older models, with a bit more rounding on the corners. We have heard that the display will be more flat than before, but it is hard to tell from this preview. Overall, the phone seems more organically smooth than previous Pixel designs.

Still, this is unmistakably a Pixel phone, for better and for worse. The same camera bar is present, with the same overall Pixel look. Hopefully the rose color is a sign of some cool color options to come, but leaks have not suggested anything too exciting. Expect shades of blue, white, grey, and maybe green.
