Google Leaks Flagship Pixel 8 Pro Again

Continuing with the storied tradition of Google’s Pixel devices being some of the most-leaked hardware ever in the market, the as-yet-unannounced Pixel 8 Pro device has now popped up on a Google Store page. @Android_Setting on X (formerly known as Twitter) pointed out the said image on a page that was promoting Google’s subscriptions and services (Pixel Pass is however not among them), revealing a man taking a call on a Pixel 8 Pro in Porcelain.

Details of the Leaked Image

Sure, the device in question looks very much like the renders and images that have already leaked prior to this, and this is included from a supposed internal Google video, but how can we be sure that it is that phone in that color? In a win for accessibility, the tipster however notes that the alt-text description of the image removes all doubt, reading, “A person takes a call on a Pixel 8 Pro phone in Porcelain.”

The design as seen in the leaked image matches the leaks, with a glass oval covering the rear cameras that as you should know are still protruding in a bar design which is very much similar to other recent Pixel phones. The leak in question doesn’t tell us anything regarding what’s inside the phone. Still, we have heard many about those already, covering the specs, screen and RAM, camera hardware, and even some potential new software features such as Video Unblur.

Expert Analysis of Google’s Leaky Hardware History

And as for Google’s leaky history when it comes to hardware, expert Sean Hollister already broke it down while also covering a Pixel 7A leak ahead of the I/O event of this year:

“Seriously: we called the Pixel 4 the most-leaked phone ever — and that was after multiple Russian-speaking bloggers obtained the Pixel 3 XL. The Nexus 4 was fully reviewed before it was ever announced. The Pixel 4A and Pixel 5 leaked like a sieve, and Google itself tipped the 6A in a coloring book, not unlike how it accidentally revealed the Nexus 5 in a YouTube video. The Pixel 6 got unboxed, and the Pixel 6 Pro even got a teardown before the phone launched. It’s not hard to see why Google tends to tease its gadgets early now.”

Now, all we have to do is wait and be ready for the launch event of the Pixel 8.
