“Pixel 8 Pro renders reveal redesigned camera and a flat display” by Jay Peters

Google’s upcoming Pixel 8 Pro may have a redesigned camera bar and a flat display, according to new renders of the unannounced device from OnLeaks and Smartprix.

The most noticeable change to the camera bar is that all three cameras will be visible in one big oval cutout instead of being partially separated like they are on the Pixel 7 Pro. Per the renders, the 8 Pro’s camera bar will also have a mysterious new sensor under the flash. Smartprix speculates that the sensor could be a macro or depth sensor but says that its “specific function remains unknown.”

If you look closely, you can see a second oval for what’s presumably the wide and ultrawide.

As for the Pixel 8 Pro’s screen, it appears it will be flat — the Pixel 7 Pro’s screen was slightly curved on the sides — and Smartprix reports it will be a 6.52-inch display with a hole-punch selfie camera. It also seems that the 8 Pro’s corners will be more rounded than the 7 Pro’s, which I personally think looks nice.

You can see more images in Smartprix’s article. OnLeaks and Smartprix also put together a short video of the renders, which you can see below.

Google didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. But we may not have to wait too much longer to learn if these renders represent the real deal. Google teased the design of the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro at Google I/O 2022, so it’s not outside the realm of possibility that the company reveals the Pixel 8 Pro (and, presumably, the standard Pixel 8) at I/O 2023 on May 10th.

The Pixel 8 lineup may not be the only phones we see at the show. Somebody already got their hands on the currently unannounced Pixel 7A, and since Google officially revealed the Pixel 6A at I/O 2022, perhaps we’ll see the 7A at I/O 2023, too. And the Google Fold is reportedly launching sometime in June, which makes a May reveal at I/O seem possible, too.
