Google’s Pixel 8 Pro revealed in prototype leak

Google’s Pixel 8 Pro may have been revealed in new photos on Reddit by someone affiliated with Google, DroidLife has reported. The back shows a very Pixel-like camera array along with the rumored body temperature sensor, along with a sticker that reads “for test/evaluation only.” Another reads “Zuma – B1,” a possible code name for Google’s incoming Tensor G3 chip. The front screen, meanwhile, shows a Fastboot Mode indicating 12GB of Samsung LPDDR5 DRAM, 128GB of storage and “husky,” a previously revealed codename for the Pixel 8 Pro. 

The Pixel 8 Pro is supposed to have a more capable camera array, with a 50-megapixel (MP) Samsung main camera that allows 50 percent more light, and a 64MP ultrawide Sony camera. It also looks to have a flat display, as rumored, rather than a curved one like the Pixel 6 Pro and Pixel 7 Pro models. According to yet another leak, it will have a 5,000 mAh battery (roughly the same as the Pixel 7 Pro) and a modest bump from a 23W to a 27W max charging speed.

In a series of posts on Reddit, the poster “annoyingtoread”, said that he received it “from the device team in Google for testing.” The person then mused that they should perhaps use a throwaway account, and someone replied “you really should, considering that in this account you’ve even posed pictures of yourself.” The original poster subsequently deleted his account.
