Google Pixel 8 Pro renders fix the ugliest things about the 7’s design

The Pixel 8 Pro is easily one of the most anticipated phones of 2023. Google knocked it out of the park with the Pixel 7 Pro last year, earning our reader’s choice award and the overall best phone of the year, so its follow-up has some big shoes to fill. Helpful software features and a powerful new Tensor G2 chip made headlines, but a lot of the acclaim stemmed from its gorgeous design. As close to perfect as it was, new renders suggest the 8 Pro might manage to fix the biggest gripes we had with the 7 Pro’s physical appearance.

The folks at Smartprix, together with industry insider OnLeaks, have given us our first look at Google’s upcoming flagship. The two biggest changes you’ll notice right away are that the curved screen has been replaced by a flat front panel, and the three-camera array is now housed in a single pill instead of having the telephoto lens separated in its own cutout.
