The anticipation surrounding Google's upcoming Pixel 8 series smartphones has reached its peak, with the unveiling slated for October 4th. Before this much-awaited event, Google decided to whet the appetite of tech enthusiasts by releasing the first official teaser of the device.
In the teaser, the design of the Pixel 8 Pro is unveiled, with an announcement that pre-orders will commence on the very day of the launch. Additionally, a new Porcelain color variant has been confirmed for this model. Adding intrigue, the teaser shows complementary accessories in the same Porcelain hue, such as the Pixel Watch 2 and the Pixel Buds Pro.

As for the Pixel 8 Pro, it's known to come in a palette of at least three colors: Licorice (Black), Porcelain, and Sky (Blue). Given the trend, the Pixel Watch 2 might also be available in these color variations. On the technical side, leaked specifications last month shed light on some of the features of the Pixel Watch 2, like the integration of UWB tech and the Snapdragon W5 Gen 1 SoC.
The Pixel 8 Pro, on the other hand, boasts impressive specifications. It will come equipped with an 11-megapixel front camera. The rear setup will include a 50-megapixel Samsung GN2 primary camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), supplemented by a 64-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 48-megapixel telephoto camera. The device will showcase a 6.7-inch OLED LTPO display, bearing a Quad HD+ resolution. For fluid user experience, the screen refresh rate stands at 120Hz. Out of the box, it will operate on Android 14, powered by a 4,950mAh battery. Charging options are versatile, with 27W fast wired charging and 23W wireless charging. Lastly, the core processing will be handled by the Tensor G3 chip, paired with 12 GB of RAM and storage capacities up to 512 GB.
