According to industry insider Kamila Wojiciechowska, pre-ordering the Pixel 8 Pro may come with a free Pixel Watch 2. This information was leaked by Wojiciechowska on X (formerly Twitter) and appears to be from a promo video for the smartphone. The leaked image suggests that the two devices will have matching colors, possibly Sky Blue. It seems that Google is not making any last-minute design changes to either the smartphone or the wearable. Additionally, Google has released images of the wearable next to the smartphone, indicating a potential deal or promotion to attract new customers. The Pixel 8 Pro is expected to launch at $899, but it is unclear if the pre-order combo will have an additional cost.
In addition to the potential deal, Wojiciechowska’s leak also revealed the complete spec sheets and product pages for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. The leaks confirm some existing knowledge about the Pixel 8 duo and provide new information about the devices’ capabilities. Both models will feature Google Tensor G3 processors supported by Titan M2 security coprocessors. The Pixel 8 has a 6.2-inch Full HD Plus OLED screen, while the Pro model boasts a larger 6.7-inch OLED display. Notably, the devices offer “beyond 24-hour battery life” and support fast charging, with a 30-minute charge providing 50 percent battery life. Key software features include Live Translate in 49 different languages via Google Assistant and improved clear calling with reduced background noise. It is important to note that leaks are not always accurate, but the leaked images appear legitimate and may be featured during the Pixel 8 event on October 4.
