Tensor G3 and the new functions with AI
The design of the Pixel 8 is quite recognizable, mainly because of that rear camera module that protrudes considerably and lenses in a deep black tone that contrasts with the aluminum of the device. The Pixel 8 comes protected with Gorilla Glass Victus 2 , IP68 certification for water and dust resistance and weighs about 187 grams.
The panel chosen is an Actua OLED, which Google describes as more accurate when it comes to colors. We have a size of 6.2 inches with FullHD+ resolution, up to 42% brighter than the Pixel 7 panel.
Inside we find the new Tensor G3 processor. It is an in-house processor with four cores at 1.7 GHz, four at 2.37 GHz and a main core at 2.91 GHz. Along with this, 8 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and storage are added of the 128GB.
For the battery we have 4,575 mAh with 27W fast charging and 18W wireless charging . As with the Pixel Watch 2, a temperature sensor compatible with the Fitbit app is also included.
At the photographic level, the Pixel 8 adds a new 50-megapixel sensor along with an f/1.68 aperture lens and a 12-megapixel wide-angle sensor that also works as a macro.
But the news, as usual in the Pixels, comes with the software functions. The Pixel 8 incorporates a ‘Best Take’ function that allows you to modify the faces of the people who appear using AI in predefined ways. An improved photo editor is also added, allowing you to change specific elements such as the position of the subject or the sky.
For the video we have to improve by AI for the quality of the video such as exposure or color. Additionally, this year ‘Night sight’ arrives on video , greatly expanding the quality of night scenes. Other additions are ‘Audio Magic Eraser’, which eliminates background sounds to focus on the main one.
Google will offer the Pixel 8 with Android 14 and explains that it promises up to 7 years of Android updates . Not security, but system. An extension that ensures the useful life of the device.
