However, there is some bad news: it appears that the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro will be substantially more expensive than their predecessors.
Price Increase (Rumour)
The Pixel 8 with 128GB of storage will cost €874 inclusive of 23% VAT, while the 256GB option will cost €949.
In comparison, the Pixel 7 started at €650 when it was first released.
The Pixel 8 Pro will start at €1,235 for the base 128GB model and rise to €1,309 for the 256GB model.
Choosing the 512GB model will result in an even higher price of €1,461.
Previously, the Pixel 7 Pro was released with a price tag of €900.
It is worth mentioning that these price increases appear to be excessively high.
It’s implying that this news should be interpreted with caution.
New Colours (Speculation)
On the contrary, the information on the colour options appears to be reliable.
The Pixel model will be available in Hazel, Obsidian, Rose, and Mint colours, while the Pro model will be available in Bay, Obsidian, Porcelain, and Mint.
Recent rumours about this duo suggest that Google is working on a Night Sight video feature.
It is to complement the existing Night Sight for photographs.
Furthermore, the earlier prediction that the phones would only support eSIM technology.
It has proven to be untrue, implying that the actual SIM card tray will continue to be used for the time being.
