A few days ago, Google announced the date of its upcoming event, Made by Google. The Made by Google event is scheduled for October 4 in New York. The Made by Google events usually unpack the Pixel smartphone and watch series. The legacy will be continued this month as well. Google has confirmed the Pixel 8 series on October 4 at Made by Google. However, ahead of the launch, Google India has also released the date of pre-orders and availability in India as well. The Pixel 8 series will include two smartphones; the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro.
Google India announced that the Pixel 8 series will sell on Flipkart exclusively. Apart from that, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro can be pre-ordered from October 5 on Flipkart.
Speaking of the details, the company has not revealed anything yet. However, a few days ago, Google ‘accidentally’ revealed the Pixel 8 Pro on its online store. This gave us a sneak peek into the design. We couldn’t spot much difference in the design except for one thing, the camera module. Just like last year, Google Pixel 8 Pro could feature a horizontal metal strip that will house the camera module. Now instead of two different rings, there might be only one camera module along with a flashlight and one more unknown sensor.
