Google’s annual I/O event is just around the corner, and rumors are circulating about the new products that may be unveiled. One device that has caught the attention of many tech enthusiasts is the rumored Google Pixel 8 Pro. Here’s what we know so far based on leaks and rumors:
Design Changes and Camera Upgrades
Recent leaks suggest that the Pixel 8 Pro will feature a new design with rounded corners, a departure from the square shape of its predecessors. The camera module has also undergone some changes, with all three lenses now situated in a single oval-shaped area.
There is also a new sensor located beneath the flash, the purpose of which is still unknown. These leaks have been accompanied by images of the device, which show it from all angles, giving us a good idea of what to expect.
From the images, we can see that the Pixel 8 Pro will have a slim profile and a sleek, modern look. The device also appears to have a large camera bump, which suggests that Google is focusing heavily on camera performance with this model.
Display and Processor
According to rumors, the Pixel 8 Pro will feature a 6.52-inch flat panel display with a centrally placed punch-hole cutout. The device is expected to be powered by Google’s in-house Tensor G3 processor, based on the yet-to-be-announced Samsung Exynos 2300 and built on 3nm technology.

Regardless, the Pixel 8 Pro is certainly a device to keep an eye on for those interested in Google’s line of smartphones.
