Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro have been confirmed to launch in October. The company announced the October 4th launch date via X (formerly known as Twitter). Weeks before their debut, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro reportedly hit the FCC certification website. The listing suggests that the upcoming Pixel 8 series could be launched in 5 variants. Recently, Pixel 8 Pro was spotted on Google’s Google Subscriptions & Services advertising page, revealing the color option and back cover design.
According to a report by 9to5Google, the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro were spotted weeks before their debut on the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) website. The FCC listing for the smartphones indicates that the phones may come in five flavors. The Pixel 8 is listed with the model numbers GKWS6, G9BQD, GZPF0, GPJ41 and G1MNW, while the Pixel 8 Pro is said to have the model number G1MNW.
Additionally, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are likely to support Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 6E, and Sub6 and mmWave 5G connectivity. The FCC is a US government agency that regulates communications. All electronic devices that emit radio waves must be certified by her.
In the meantime, the picture of the Google Pixel 8 Pro has also been seen on Google’s advertising page for Google Subscriptions & Services. The leaked image reveals the color option as well as the rear design. The smartphone was tested in the color Porcelain White. It will likely feature a triple rear camera housed in a single pill-shaped camera island. In addition, the presence of another sensor was also hinted at alongside the LED flash.
It has also been announced that the Google Pixel 8 series will be launched as an eSIM-only smartphone in select regions. The leaked renders suggested that the SIM card slots on the left were missing. However, these details have not yet been confirmed by Google, so it is advised to view them with caution.
