If Google’s Pixel Pro family has held your interest for a while, but the thought of a curved screen phone has kept you from buying Or, the Pixel 8 Pro might be interesting. According to a Published on Saturday, Google’s next flagship will have a flat screen.
After writing last week about Google planning the Pixel 8 family, leaker Kamila Wojciechowska said the Pixel 8 Pro will feature a 6.7-inch OLED panel sourced from Samsung with a resolution of 1,344 x 2,992 and a pixel density of 490 pixels per inch. If you don’t have a Pixel 7 Pro on hand, each figure is slightly smaller than the specs offered by Google’s current flagship, which features a 6.71-inch curved screen with a resolution of 1440 x 3120 and a pixel density of 512ppi. However, according to Wojciechowska, the Pixel 8 Pro’s screen will get brighter, reaching 1,600 nits of peak brightness — compared to the Pixel 7 Pro’s 1,000 nits — when viewing HDR content. In addition, the 120Hz panel will be able to transition more smoothly between refresh rates.
As for the Pixel 8, it is also slated to receive a new display. Interestingly, the device will have a smaller screen than the Pixel 7. Android Authority He claims that the phone will ship with a 6.17-inch display with a resolution of 1,080 x 2400. This is the same resolution as the Pixel 7’s 6.31-inch screen, which means that the new phone will offer a higher notch. On top of that, the screen is said to offer 1,400 nits of peak brightness, up from 1,000 in its predecessor, and a 120Hz refresh rate instead of 90Hz like the Pixel 7’s. Speaking of Google’s latest mid-range phone, there have been rumors that the 7a might be the company’s last a-class phones, which might explain why the Pixel 8 has a smaller screen.
Android Authority Reports indicate that both the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro will have more rounded corners than Google’s current pair of high-end phones, an earlier report from leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer. This change should make it easier to use with one hand. Between the new displays and the larger primary camera sensor, Google plans to outfit the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro with the company’s new phones well. Expect more information about the devices to emerge in the weeks and months leading up to their release later this year.
