Google has finally unveiled its latest flagship phones, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. They include the new Google Tensor G3 chipset, cameras with up to 5x zoom, Android 14 and many innovative AI features. This year, both the new Pixel 8 and 8 Pro are available in three different color combinations. Google has introduced a number of new colors with the Pixel 8 series, which we have not seen before. So in this article we are going to talk about the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro colors with their official images in all their glory. On that note, let’s jump in.
Pixel 8 has been made available in three colors including Rose, Hazel and Obsidian (in order, as shown above). These colors are not new to Pixel users as Google has released Pixel devices in all these color variants before.
Unfortunately, Google hasn’t released a Coral variant for the Pixel 8 series. That said, the exterior is made of more durable materials and can easily resist scratches this time. It is protected by scratch resistant Gorilla Glass Diet at the front and back.
The best part is that Pixel 8 has a matt aluminum frame, giving you a first-class experience in your hand. Google says the aluminum frame is built with 100% recycled materials, so that’s nice. Overall, the device is made from 18% recycled material. Finally, Pixel 8 weighs 187 grams (6.6 oz).
Pixel 8 Pro Colors
Google has also not opted for wildly funky colors for the Pixel 8 Pro this time. The Pixel 8 Pro comes in three color variants including: Bay Blue, Porcelain and the classic Obsidian.
We’ve already seen the Pixel Fold in Porcelain and Obsidian, so it’s nice that Google has brought those color options to the 8 Pro. Other than that, the Bay color may seem too vibrant and ‘at first glance’, but personally I like it. The tint is slightly stronger than the Sea Blue color variant of the Pixel 7a. It weighs 213 grams (7.5 oz) which is a little on the higher side, but you also get a larger 5,050 mAh battery. By the way, which colorways of the Pixel 8 Pro do you like the most?
Besides the color options for the Pixel 8 series, I’m surprised Google announced “seven years of operating system, security and functionality updates” with the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. That’s a high benchmark the company has set, beating Samsung and OnePlus in the Android ecosystem, and even Apple.
Overall, I’m also very excited about the new Tensor G3 chipset, which focuses on efficiency over breakneck performance. That aside, it’s always a pleasure to see new AI features like “Best Take” and “Photo Unblur” come to Pixel devices first.
Google has also added Pro controls to its camera app, which is honestly long overdue. And oddly enough, the Pixel 8 Pro comes with a built-in thermometer. However, what do you think of the new color options for Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
