Google’s premium Pixel smartphone lineup, which includes the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, is expected to go on sale. The Pixel 8 series has been the subject of rumors and leaks, but there is still little information available and no images of the potential phones have surfaced. With 91mobiles, tipster Kuba Wojciechowski has just released an exclusive video showing off the whole appearance of the Pixel 8 Pro as well as how it functions as a thermometer.
Design elements of the Google Pixel 8 Pro
Similar to the Pixel 7 Pro, the Pixel 8 Pro has a punch-hole front camera. Three cameras are located at the back, but even this time, Google combined all three cameras into a single pill-shaped module. Pixel 7 Pro boasts a dual camera setup on the front and a single camera on the rear. The aluminum frame that houses the camera module has a similar look to that of the Pixel 7 Pro. These video stills are included (which have now been taken down).
Google Pixel 8 Pro will include a temperature sensor
But, there is one modification: a new sensor has been added and is located just below the LED flash. The temperature of your body will be measured using this special infrared thermometer sensor. Similar to the sensor used by the majority of contactless thermometers. We can clearly see in the video how the Pixel 8 Pro’s built-in thermometer works.
Find the white sensor first, then check to see whether there are any accessories on your skin or forehead. The sensor on the Pixel 8 Pro must then be placed as close to your forehead as possible without touching your skin. During five seconds, you may hit the start button and move the phone near your temple. The phone will vibrate when your temperature is taken, and you may see it.
Only the Pixel 8 Pro will have access to the built-in temperature since the sensor is needed. The Pixel 8 Pro will be able to monitor objects’ temperatures in addition to body temperatures. The Android Private Compute Core will be used to process and store the gathered data locally. Also, Google employees are already testing this capability.
Google Pixel 8 Pro specifications
If past experience is any guide, the Google Pixel 8 series will be released in October. The Samsung 50MP ISOCELL GN2 camera sensor is anticipated to be used by the Pixel 8 Pro based on the information that has surfaced so far. Its size, 1/1.12 inch, makes it Samsung’s largest camera sensor to date. The picture quality and resolution of images will improve with a larger camera sensor. The Tensor G3 is most likely in the Google Pixel 8 Pro, which is expected to include a 6.52-inch display and a new chipset with the codename “Zuma.”
