Google has leaked the upcoming Pixel 8 Pro again. This time, the leak comes via the company’s own 360-degree simulator that allows users to see the device from every angle. The leak revealed features like a new temperature sensor and physical SIM slot, along with three colours. However, it is still unclear if this was really an accident or just a move to create the hype.
This Google Pixel 8 Pro simulator (since down) was initially spotted by X user Jose Ruben, and Android expert Mishaal Rahman, reports Engadget. Rahman also posted screenshots of the 360-degree simulator on X, highlighting the Pixel 8 Pro smartphone with little yellow dots showing different sensors and ports. It not only revealed a new temperature sensor and physical SIM slot, but also three colours.
