Google Pixel 8

​​​The Google Pixel 8 is the latest flagship phone from Google, along with the much anticipated Pixel 8 Pro. Due for release on the 12th October 2023, the Pixel 8 takes the smartphone game to new levels. It’s loaded with new Google AI technology to make your daily experiences even easier. You can instantly translate things on the go or use your AI assistant to schedule meetings and screen spam calls. Photo editing is easier than ever now you’ve got a lovely little AI assistant helping you crop images, alter defects and more. 

When it comes to the photos themselves, you have an arsenal of high-tech tools designed to make it almost impossible to create bad images. Dual 50 MP rear cameras come with Macro Focus to reveal vivid color and striking contrast in the smallest of subjects. The level of detail is insane - and the Night Sight feature means you continue seeing these details in low-light settings. HDR+ on the cameras also provides more clarity and automatically adjusts color and lighting to suit the scene. Combine this with the awesome Real Tone feature and different skin tones appear more natural in images. 

All of your new images and videos can be viewed on one of the most impressive screens around. The Google Pixel 8 has a 6.2-inch display with Actua technology, meaning it presents bright colors and clarity in any setting - even when exposed to direct sunlight. This means you can scroll, play mobile games or stream videos without worrying about glare. Oh, and you can do all of this in an instant thanks to 5G compatibility. 

You never have to worry about your Pixel 8 running out of charge as the Extreme Battery Saver mode can take the 4575 mAh battery up to 72 hours before it runs out. When it does need to be plugged in, Google uses fast charging to bring you up to 50% charge in 30 minutes. The battery was always one of the best features of the Google Pixel 7, so it’s nice to see it somehow been made even better!
