If you’re in the market for a new smartphone, there are some great reasons to think about waiting for Google’s Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro.
Google’s working on a pair of successors for its current flagships, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro and we’ve seen numerous leaks and reports highlight potential Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro features.
We’ve heard about a smaller display size, a brand new processor, and some changes to the overall design of the company’s flagship phones.
The device’s won’t arrive on shelves tomorrow and we’ve got several months to go before Google officially announces, and releases, them.
That being said, if you’re hunting for a new device, and a new Android device in particular, you might want to hang around and wait for the company’s inevitable announcement.
In this guide we’ll take you through the best reasons to wait for the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. We’ll also go over some reasons why you might want to buy a completely different device long before Google makes these devices official.
The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are still in development behind the scenes so we’ll regularly update this guide as we approach their release date later on this year.
Wait for Performance Improvements
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro offer solid performance in key areas like battery life and speed, but expect the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro to take a step forward.
Google is reportedly testing a new Tensor G3 processor that's based on an unannounced Exynos processor from Samsung. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are both powered by Google's Tensor G2 chip.
The move to this new chip should help the Pixel 8 models deliver better performance in key areas like battery life, AI logic, and gaming performance.
The latter would allow Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro users to utilize their device like a desktop computer, complete with mouse and keyboard support.
These won't be the only performance improvements on board these devices and we'll let you know when we learn more.
