Ever since the launch of the original Google Pixel back in 2016, Pixel phones have been some of the best camera phones on the market, producing image quality to rival any competitor. Now the 8th Generation Pixel and Pixel Pro phones are due to be revealed on October 4th and are expected feature the most advanced camera hardware and image processing of any Pixel phone.

Little is officially known about the phones, other than the basic teaser info currently on the Pixel 8's holding pages. However, Google really should hire a better plumber, as Pixel 8 leaks have been almost constant for the last few weeks, with many seeming very credible.
