Three exciting Pixel 8 Pro leaks that will change the world

Google has set the scene for its “Made by Google” event on October 4, and the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are set to take center stage. The Pixel 8 Pro will break new ground, especially in hardware and software. Looking at the leaks, details, and available information, here are three experiences that will have a significant impact on the smartphone world.

First up is the Tensor G3 system on chip. Instead of going for Qualcomm’s off-the-shelf premium chipset in 2021, Google planned to design its own chipset for the Pixel 6. The Tensor G1 couldn’t quite match the raw power of the then-current Snapdragon 888. It was designed around artificial intelligence and machine learning, which provided more software benefits that had a positive impact on the user experience.

The camera software’s post-processing was one area, but you also got faster on-device translation and transcription as other visible benefits. Last year’s Tensor G2 built on these, and you can expect the Tensor G3 to continue on this path, allowing the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro to excel in these areas.

As far as performance differences between Snapdragon chipsets are concerned, the Tensor G3 is set to match the existing Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, although Gen 3 is expected to launch early next year.

Again, you have invested in both software and hardware in the camera.

As for the latter, Google is set to use the new Samsung Isocell GN2 image sensor on both the Pixel 8 Pro and Pixel 8. This is a step up from the previous GN1 sensor, allowing the new handset to sample 50 megapixels while capturing 35 percent. more light. It also supports video recording at 8K resolution and 30 frames per second. Still, we’re waiting to see if Google will bring out that level of performance – it will be incredibly intensive on power usage and require careful thermal management.

The software is also seeing new features in the updated camera app. Google’s camera app is (officially) only available on Pixel devices, and version 9 will only run on Android 14; You can rest assured that this app utilizes both the new optical hardware and the AI ​​and ML capabilities of the Tensor G3.

Previous Pixels introduced AI-powered Unblur and Magic Eraser for still images; With the Pixel 8 Pro, video editing will take on AI tools of its own. Audio Magic Eraser is expected to deal with unwanted noise, people and music in your recorded videos and remove them from the final cut with a slider and some on-screen highlighting.

Ultimately, Google is modeling what the community wants to see from manufacturers regarding software support and security updates. Google is preparing to provide five years of Android updates to Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro owners. Given that the new smartphones will be the first to come with Android 14 out of the box, this will be one of the longest support windows of a new mainstream Android device, surpassing the high-water mark currently held by Samsung for the Galaxy S handsets. Will cross the mark. ,

A groundbreaking chipset that focuses on target speed rather than core performance; A camera that will offer unrivaled image taking and editing; And a guiding light for other Android partners to follow.

And it has a flat screen.

Yes, there’s a lot to like about the upcoming Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro.
