Leaked Pixel 8 Pro unboxing images spill every last secret about its design

Leaked Pixel 8 Pro unboxing video spills every last secret about the phone's design
It happens every year without fail. Unboxing videos of unreleased Pixel phones are leaked on the internet before they are formally revealed by Google. A Vietnamese Facebook page by the name of Vật Vờ Studio has shared an unboxing video of the Pixel 8 Pro, laying bare its design for all to see.

Although images of Pixel 8 Pro have been shared many times before, both by official and unofficial sources, this is the first time that we are seeing it from so many angles. More importantly, we get to see the Pixel 8 Pro's box, which is similar to the one the Pixel 7 duo came in. Its contents included a USB-C to USB-C cable and a Quick Switch adapter.

Vật Vờ Studio says that they were sent these images by a "fan" and they appear to have been taken in a factory. Vietnam is where some Pixel production takes place, which explains why all recent sources of unboxing videos have been Vietnam-based.

The Pixel 8 Pro seems to have rounder edges than the Pixel 7 Pro but the screen is flat. The camera cutout now has more of an oblong shape and houses all the lenses. The phone also has a temperature sensor.

As 9to5Google notes, the device appears to have a matte glass back, which was also hinted at by a recent leak.

The Pixel 8 Pro is rumored to have a 6.7-inch 120Hz Super Actua screen. It will feature a new 48MP ultrawide camera which could help it retain its spot as the best camera smartphone. It may also feature a bigger 4,950mAh battery and faster 27W charging. 

Both Pixel 8 models will likely be powered by the new Tensor G3 chip and will be supported by Google for seven years. The devices will be announced on October 4 alongside the second Pixel Watch and will reportedly go on sale on October 12.

The base model could be a little pricier, but the Pro variant is expected to cost the same as last year.
