Google accidentally reveals Pixel 8 Pro colors and details

We are just a few weeks away from Google’s highly anticipated Made by Google event on October 4th in New York City. The event is expected to feature the unveiling of the newest Pixel Watch and the latest Pixel phones. However, there has already been a major sneak peek into what’s to come with the Pixel 8 Pro.

Twitter users, or should I say X users, made an interesting discovery this morning. By replacing the name of any other Pixel phone in the URL of the “Get to Know Your Hardware” page with “Pixel 8 Pro,” they were greeted with a captivating 360-degree view of the new device. The view showcased the phone from every angle, complete with indicators pointing out its important parts. Although the URL replacement trick no longer works, images and GIFs of the all-around view quickly spread like wildfire on social media, giving us a tantalizing glimpse of what Google has in store for us.

Now, let’s delve into some of the intriguing details. One noteworthy addition to the Pixel 8 Pro is a new temperature sensor located on the back right next to the camera. This sensor could potentially enhance photography capabilities and features. Additionally, the phone will retain its SIM card slot, which is a relief for those of us who prefer having that option. The Pixel 8 Pro was showcased in three colors – blue, gray, and black – each given a fancier name by Google: Sky, Porcelain, and Licorice respectively. From what we can tell, the home screen remains largely unchanged.

Interestingly, Google itself accidentally released a photo of the Pixel 8 Pro just last week, casting some doubt on whether this recent leak is truly unintentional. Furthermore, Apple is set to officially unveil the highly anticipated iPhone 15 Pro next week, which raises suspicions about the timing of this leak. Could it be nothing more than a carefully orchestrated tease from Google to steal a bit of Apple’s thunder?

One of the key features rumored for the Pixel 8 is a “desktop mode” that essentially allows the phone to function as a computer when connected to a dock. This ambitious feature aligns with Google’s vision of creating a versatile and multi-functional device that can seamlessly adapt to various user needs.

Of course, many aspects of the Pixel 8 Pro remain shrouded in secrecy. The leaked images and information only pertain to this particular model, leaving us eager to discover what surprises lie in store for the regular Pixel 8. While there are still countless specifications and features yet to be officially announced, the leaked images have certainly generated excitement and anticipation within the tech community.

As we eagerly count down the days until the Made by Google event, it’s clear that Google has some exciting innovations in the pipeline. From the improved camera features to the rumored desktop mode, the Pixel 8 Pro has the potential to make a significant impact in the mobile market. Whether this leak was accidental or intentional, it has undeniably ramped up the excitement and ensures that all eyes will be on Google on October 4th. Until then, we can only speculate and eagerly await the official unveiling of Google’s latest flagship devices.
