Google Pixel 8 new leak hints at Tensor G3 chipset, 12GB RAM

Google launched the Pixel 7 just a few months ago and there are already rumors of a new Pixel phone in the works. Google is reportedly working on the Pixel 8, which could launch in the second half of 2023. The phone is expected to come with a Tensor G3 chipset and 12GB of RAM. The new Pixel 8 series is expected to have two phones in the series – the base Pixel 8 and a Pro variant.

According to a report by Android Police, the Google Pixel 8 Pro is expected to have a display with a resolution of 2822 x 1344 pixels, while the vanilla model will have a display with a resolution of 2268 x 1080. Both Pixel phones are expected to pack Google’s own Tensor G3 chip.

Even though Google has been prototyping foldable phones since 2019, there is less chance that the Pixel 8 series will have one. According to WinFuture, Google is working on two new smartphones codenamed ‘Shiba’ and ‘Husky’. There’s no word on the phone’s camera specs, but there’s a chance that Google will continue with the Pixel 7’s 50MP main camera in upcoming Pixel phones.

Google introduced the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro this October. The Google Pixel 7 is equipped with a 6.3-inch OLED display with FHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The smartphone is powered by the new Google Tensor G2 chipset paired with 8GB of RAM. The phone is equipped with a dual rear camera. The Pixel 7 Pro, on the other hand, offers a slightly larger 6.7-inch LTPO display with QHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. It is also powered by a Tensor G2 chipset paired with only 12GB of RAM. The Pixel 7 has three cameras on the back.
