Google devices seem to have a long history of being leaked weeks or months before the official announcement. This time around the company has made a mistake and seems to have leaked one of their flagship devices launching next month, the Pixel 8 Pro. The company has accidentally used the image of its upcoming phone on the official website.
It was first spotted by Mishaal Rahman and Android Setting on X (formerly Twitter). The device was revealed in a Porcelain colour variant. Let’s check out how Google Pixel 8 Pro will look in Porcelain colour and what specifications and features we know so far about the device.
Here’s a look at the Google Pixel 8 Pro in Porcelain Colour
Google accidentally published a Pixel 8 Pro image on its Google Store website on the promo page for “Google Subscriptions & Services”. However, after being spotted, the company was quick to take down the image.
The Alt text/description for the image stated “A person takes a call on a Pixel 8 Pro phone in Porcelain.” This confirms that the device was indeed the Pixel 8 Pro in a colour variant called Porcelain. Those who still doubt whether it’s the Pixel 7 Pro or 8 Pro can check the camera module which has all the sensors housed in a single pile whereas in Pixel 7 Pro, there’s a pill and circle to house the sensors.
Also, the watch featured in the image is speculated to be the upcoming Pixel Watch 2.
