Finally, the Google Pixel 8 series launched with Google Pixel 8 & Pixel 8 Pro, we are very excited but the price of the new Pixel series has gone so high this time. we going to tell you all about it, This article will provide you with the all specs, and features, of the Google Pixel 8 from its Antutu score to the Updates of software you get with the new Pixel 8.
The software & hardware are equally important. we have to talk about the software as well. Finally, it’s Pixel by Google & Android by Google. Both the software & hardware are from Google.
Google Pixel 8 Box Contents
In the box, you get devices that come in three color options Obsidian, Hazel, and Rose. It has the same camera module & horizontal strip. You get a dongle, USB Type A to Type C & a USB Type C to Type C cable. It’s a small piece of documentation. Finally, the SIM card tool.
Google Pixel 8 Design
Display It’s a flat display and when you keep the phone, it slants like this. But it doesn’t wobble, so that’s good. If you compare the Pixel 8 it has a glossy back & glass. It has Victus on the front & back. The normal glossy finish. But, the camera module is matte & the back is shiny.
Google Pixel 8 Ports & Buttons
There’s a speaker, grill & microphone at the bottom. There’s a USB Type C port. On the right-hand side, there’s a volume rocker at the bottom & power on & off at the top. If you use another phone, you know that the volume rocker is always at the top & the power button is at the bottom.
So you’re going to get confused. On the left-hand side, there’s an antenna & a noise-canceling microphone. On the left-hand side, there’s a SIM card tray at the bottom. Talking about the SIM card tray, there’s no dedicated SD card slot.
Google Pixel 8 Storage variants & Price
Let’s talk about the very interesting storage variants. There’s a single nano SIM card slot. There’s an eSIM, so there’s dual SIM card support. There’s an eSIM & a physical SIM. I don’t understand how it’s done. The base variant has 8GB RAM with 128GB storage and 8GB RAM with 256GB Storage. The Pricing for 128GB is 75,999rs and for 256GB is 82,999rs
Google Pixel 8 Display
Let’s talk about the display. You get 6.2” in the Pixel 8 with FHD resolution & a peak brightness of 2000 nits. It has an adaptive refresh rate. It changes from 1Hz to 120Hz according to the screen you’re using and yes, this is an NTPO display.
Google Pixel 8 Specifications
Let’s talk about the specifications. You get a Tensor G3 chipset, which is based on Samsung’s 4nm fabrication technology.
So they’re very power efficient, but it’s Samsung fabrication, remember that! And because of that, the thermals, when I talk about performance, I’m going to talk about thermals. But as I said, the variants are 8GB, 128GB & 8GB, and 256 GB. You get LPDDR5X RAM type & UFS 3.1 storage type.
If I talk about the battery, you get a 4575mAh battery in the Pixel 8, and there’s no super-fast charging! You get 27W charging, and there’s 18W wireless charging support.
Google Pixel 8 OS
Let’s talk about the OS. This is probably the phone that uses AI the most. A lot of the features, especially the camera features, are all AI-based and they work well, but they work slowly.
They take time to process, but yes, there’s AI. But yes, there’s AI. The biggest thing is that Android 14 comes out of the box.
But in the launch event, Google said that they’ll give 7 years of major updates. 7 years! That’s crazy! Who has used Android 21 for 7 years? I know a lot of people are saying that they’re giving 7 years of updates.
In features, you can create & customize AI wallpapers. So AI is used there as well. There are new features on the lock screen that you can customize, so that’s there. One good thing is that security is very important. It comes with a dedicated chipset, Titan M2. So you have to keep the data safe for security. That’s very helpful.
Google Pixel 8 Multimedia
Let’s talk about multimedia. you’ll enjoy it. It has an OLED display with beautiful colors & it’s bright. You’re going to have a lot of fun while watching videos outside. There are stereo speakers for audio. And you’ll be able to play HDR playback in videos. So that’s all there. Multimedia will be fun!
Google Pixel 8 Connectivity
Connectivity It supports 21 5G bands. There’s Wi-Fi 6E which can be upgraded to Wi-Fi 7 as it supports Wi-Fi 7. It has Bluetooth 5.3 & NFC. It’s probably the smartphone with the best connectivity options.
Google Pixel 8 Camera
The biggest thing, when we talk about pixels, it’s the camera. How are the cameras? Mixed feelings again. 3-4 years ago, when Pixel 6 & Pixel 7 were launched, the camera & portrait modes were top-of-the-line. No one could beat it.
Now, I don’t get the same feeling. I won’t say that the cameras are great. Specifications In Pixel 6, you get a 50MP plus 12MP dual camera setup. you get a 10.5MP selfie sensor.
In terms of videography, you get 4K 60FPS front & back. you get videography, OIS & stable footage. But wait for the features. The big thing is its AI features. What can you do after taking a photo?
There’s a feature called Best Take. You take a photo, and everyone else is laughing but only 1 person’s face is different. It takes photos in different bursts & you can change the face. You can change the face of the person who didn’t take the photo properly.
In a few days, you won’t be able to trust any photo due to AI. Because you don’t know whether it’s AI-generated or real. Earlier it was a magic eraser, now it has a magic editor. With the help of AI, it analyzes the background, portrait & landscape. It gives you options & you can change them.
If you choose sky or portrait, different options will be automatically generated by AI, and use the one that you feel is best. The sky, building, the person has changed, what’s left? That’s Magic Editor for you. One more thing, you should have faith in your eyes & ears.
Now there’s an audio eraser too. So if you’re shooting a video & there’s a lot of background noise, it’ll tell you exactly if you want to get the natural sound or the actual audio.
So you can get the background noise or the audio. I mean, the Pixel has become AI-mine! This is just the trailer & the full picture is yet to come.
Google Pixel 8 other features
If I talk about the small features, there’s IP68 certification, wireless charging, Widevine L1 support, all these things are there & that’s what we expect.
But what we don’t expect is such a high price. I think the prices should have been a little lower. So those are the 1-2 things that I didn’t like. Rest, it’s a Pixel phone & 7 years of upgrades are overkill according to me.
