Google Pixel 8 Pro vs. Pixel 7 Pro: the differences! – Lesmobile

Google has just announced its new high-end smartphone, the Pixel 8 Pro. But what are the differences to its predecessor, the Pixel 7 Pro? Here you will find all the technical features in comparison so that you can see more clearly.

The design doesn’t change much between the Google Pixel 7 Pro and the new Google Pixel 8 Pro. In fact, the Pixel 8 Pro also offers a strip on the back for integrating the photo sensors. This time only one pill is visible to all targets. In addition, we can expect the integration of a new temperature sensor that serves health and is missing from the Pixel 7 Pro. The dimensions are almost identical. Expect a height of 162.2mm compared to 162.9mm before and a width of 76.5mm compared to 76.6mm for the Pixel 7 Pro. The Pixel 8 Pro has a profile of 8.8mm compared to 8.9mm. The weight is also similar at 212 grams for the Pixel 7 Pro and 213 grams for the Pixel 8 Pro.
The Pixel 7 Pro has a battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh compared to 5050 mAh in the new model. Both charge with the same power, 30 watts, and offer wireless and reverse charging.

What are the differences between screens and photo sensors?

The new Google Pixel 8 Pro smartphone, like the previous model, has a 6.7-inch AMOLED panel with a resolution of 1440 x 3120 pixels, compatible with HDR10+. It is characterized by a refresh rate that can drop to 1 Hz from the previous 10 Hz and increase to a maximum of 120 Hz for smooth scrolling. In addition, we can expect the Pixel 8 Pro to have a higher brightness (maximum 2400 cd/m², according to Google) than its predecessor. Note that the screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 technology.

For photos, the Google Pixel 8 Pro, like its predecessor, has an optically stabilized 50-megapixel main sensor. There’s still the 48-megapixel telephoto lens, which allows optical zoom up to 5x. What is new is the replacement of the 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor with a 48-megapixel module for the new model. This is able to support photos in macro mode, i.e. extremely close to the subject. The Pixel 8 Pro offers exclusive image editing features. In addition, the Video Boost function is also included, which can process any image in HDR10+ for videos. The night vision function enables extremely bright scenes.
You can also use professional settings for photos. Thanks to the integration of generative artificial intelligence developed by Google, the magic eraser has gained in precision. The Zoom Enhance function allows you to optimize zoomed photos, again using the American giant’s generative AI.
Otherwise, for taking a selfie, the Pixel 8 Pro has a 10.5 megapixel sensor compared to 10.8 megapixels on the Pixel 7 Pro.

Are there differences in performance and connectivity?

Yes, the Google Pixel 8 Pro is more powerful than the Pixel 7 Pro as it has the latest Google Tensor G3 chipset. The two Google smartphones have 12 GB of RAM and offer 128 or 256 GB or even 512 GB for more storage space. In terms of connectivity, both are 5G compatible and offer Wi-Fi 6E with the option to upgrade to Wi-Fi 7 once the update is available. Finally, note that the Google Pixel 8 Pro runs directly on Android 14 and promises 7 years of system and security updates.
