However, MySmartPrice readers do not have to wait for so long to get an idea about the Pixel 8.

The leaked design renders show that the Google Pixel 8 will get some design renders over the outgoing Pixel 7 5G, which is available for purchase in India.

Google Pixel 8 Design Renders: What You Need to Know
The Google Pixel 8 will be the entry-level flagship in the company’s premium smartphone lineup for 2023 and is expected to be unveiled in May 2023. Ahead of the launch, tipster OnLeaks has shared the design renders of the upcoming Pixel flagship smartphone, which reveal that it will continue to feature a dual-camera setup. The phone is likely to miss out on a telephoto camera sensor, which might remain exclusive to the Pixel 8 Pro. There is an LED flash outside the oval-shaped camera module on the protruding visor.
The phone is a lot more rounded around the corners. This itself gives the Pixel 8 a different look compared to the boxy design of the Pixel 7. The change in design also has resulted in the Pixel 8 sporting a smaller display. OnLeaks tells us that the Pixel 8 will have a circa 6.2-inch display, compared to 6.3-inches seen on the Pixel 7. The screen will remain flat and sport a hole-punch cutout at the top centre.
The Pixel 8 is also smaller than its predecessor, according to OnLeaks. The phone will measure roughly about 150.5 x 70.8 x 8.9mm. If you include the thick camera visor, the Pixel 8 will measure 12mm.
The frame is curved and houses the power and volume buttons on the right edge. We can also see some antenna lines on the frame, suggesting that the phone will come with a metal chassis. At the bottom edge, there is the USB Type-C port with cutouts for the primary speaker and the microphone.
