Google Pixel 8 Series Price and Storage Options Leaked; Pixel 8 Pro may get night vision for video

The Google Pixel 8 series is expected to be unveiled at the company’s Made by Google event on October 4th. As we get closer to the annual Google event, more leaks about the next-gen Pixel phones are popping up online. A recent report revealed the European pricing details of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, along with their storage configurations and color options. Previous leaks suggest that the Pixel 8 series may only come in an eSIM version. However, new findings indicate that Google will integrate physical SIM card slots into the handsets. The Pixel 8 Pro is also expected to have night vision video.

Tipster Paras Guglani (@passionategeekz) has partnered with TheTechOutlook to share the pricing details, storage configurations and color options for the upcoming Pixel 8 series. According to the report, the Pixel 8 will cost 874.25 euros (about Rs. 78,400) for the 128GB storage variant. The 256 GB storage variant is said to have a price of EUR 949.30 (approx. Rs. 85,200). The vanilla model will be offered in the colors hazelnut, mint, obsidian and rose.

The Pixel 8 Pro, on the other hand, could cost $1,235.72 (roughly Rs. 1,10,900) for the 128GB storage model, while the 256GB storage model is said to cost $1,309.95 (roughly Rs. 1,17,500). . The high-end model with 512 GB is said to cost 1,461.24 EUR (approx. Rs. 1,31,100). It is said to be available in laurel, mint, obsidian and porcelain shades.

All price tags include 23 percent VAT. Excluding VAT, the Pixel 8 could cost 710.77 euros (about 63,000 rupees) for the base variant and 771.79 euros (about 69,000 rupees) for the top-of-the-line model. Excluding VAT, the price could be EUR1,004.65 (approx. Rs. 90,000) for the Pro model, EUR 1,065 (approx. Rs. 95,000) and EUR 1,188 (approx. Rs. 1,06,600) for the 128GB, 256GB and 512GB respectively.

Separately, a 9to5Google report, citing sources, claims that the Pixel 8 series will inherit the eSIM and physical SIM slot from previous Pixel phones. This contradicts the recent findings of tipster Mishaal Rahman (@MishaalRahman). As with the iPhone 14 series, there was speculation that the Pixel 8 models would ditch physical SIM card slots in favor of eSIM, at least in some regions.

Additionally, the Pixel 8 Pro will reportedly come with Night Sight support for video. This feature would improve the quality of videos recorded in low light conditions. This functionality could be improved by the Tensor G3 SoC’s faster image signal processor (ISP) and AI capabilities.

The Pixel 8 series has been the subject of numerous leaks lately. Both smartphones are expected to run Android 14 and feature displays with a 120Hz refresh rate. They are expected to ship with a Tensor G3 chip, which is an upgrade from the Tensor G2 SoC. The Pixel 8 Pro is expected to have a 4,950mAh battery with 27W support for wired fast charging. The Pixel 8, on the other hand, could be supported by a 4,485mAh battery with 24W wired charging and 12W wireless charging support.

At Google I/O 2023, alongside the launch of its first foldable phone and first Pixel tablet, the search giant kept telling us that it cares about AI. This year, the company will upgrade its apps, services and Android operating system with AI technology. We discuss this and more on Orbital, the Gadgets 360 Podcast.
