The Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are set to make their debut in 2023, and a recent leak has given us a detailed look at the major design changes Google plans to make. According to the leak, both phones will feature a flat display, a more rounded back, and a camera array housed inside a single pill.
The source of the leak has also shared close-up CAD render comparisons of the Pixel 7 Pro and Pixel 8 Pro, showing how flat the screen on the upcoming Pixel will be. From these renders, it’s clear that the Pixel 8 Pro will have a much flatter display compared to the Pixel 7 Pro’s curved screen. This change will not only prevent accidental touches but will also make it easier to find an affordable tempered screen protector.
The renders also give us a closer look at the rounded corners of the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro’s display, which will be significantly more rounded than current-gen Pixels. This complements the new rounded design of the phones, and we hope that Google ensures that the curvature of the system UI elements matches the display’s rounded edges.
While curved edge displays are popular among Android phones, it appears that Google is set to buck the trend with the Pixel 8 Pro this year, following in the footsteps of Samsung’s Galaxy S23 Ultra, which features a flatter display than previous models.
Overall, the leaked renders indicate exciting changes coming to the Google Pixel line in 2023. With a flat display, a more rounded back, and a camera array housed inside a single pill, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are sure to impress. Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to their official debut.
