Google LLC handed out press invites for a hardware event where it’s anticipated that the Pixel 8, the most recent version of its flagship Android smartphone, will be unveiled.

The Pixel 8, the primary subject of Google’s next hardware event, will be available in a less expensive Pixel 8 Pro and a standard version. A 6.16-inch display with a resolution of 2268 by 1080 pixels is foreseen for the first gadget. According to rumors, the Pixel 8 Pro would have a 6.7-inch screen with a marginally better resolution.

Recent disclosures indicate that both devices will feature an enhanced version of the Tensor G2 smartphone processor manufactured by Google LLC. It is said to be based on a system-on-chip (SOC) from the Exynos product line of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. Exynos SOCs integrate a central processing unit, a graphics processing unit, and additional compute modules into a single device.

The camera system on the Pixel 8 Pro is intercepted to undergo a significant improvement. According to Engadget, Google is upgrading the Pixel 7 Pro’s main camera to a 50-megapixel one that can capture 50% more light. In addition, the search engine giant is thought to have significantly improved the resolution of the phone’s ultrawide lens.

According to reports, Google will mix the hardware enhancements with fresh photography software. According to reports, Adaptive Torch, a new software feature, can modify the camera flash’s power based on the amount of available light. Staggered HDR, another feature, should make shots with less motion blur.

There were rumors that the Pixel 8 cover would have a thermometer adjacent to the camera array in May. The thermometer is supposed to enable users to check their skin temperature to see if they might be feverish.

Updated Smartwatch

Another item that Google will reportedly unveil on October 4, the Pixel Watch 2, is also rumored to have new sensors. According to reports, the smartwatch will have sensors that can gauge the wearer’s skin temperature and stress level. Similar functions are included in the Fitbit Sense 2, a smartwatch that Google’s Fitbit division debuted in late 2016.

The Snapdragon W5 Plus processor from Qualcomm Inc. will purportedly power the sensors in the Pixel Watch 2. The processor has a four-core CPU with a 1.7GHz clock rate explicitly designed for wearables. Additionally, a two-core GPU is available for accelerating rendering processes.

The chip in the current Pixel Watch is based on less sophisticated 10-nanometer technology, unlike Qualcomm’s Snapdragon W5 Plus, which uses a four-nanometer manufacturing process. Additionally, the latter chip has fewer CPU cores. The Pixel Watch 2 is anticipated to perform better than its predecessor and have a longer battery life.
