- Latest leaks suggest downsized 6.16″ display for Pixel 8
- 120 Hz refresh rate expected for Pixel 8 Pro
- Official details to be revealed at Google I/O on May 10th
Google is expected to release its Pixel 8 lineup near the end of this year. But as the Google I/O is one month away, we are expected to see a brief showcase or sneak peek of the new unreleased Pixel 8.
Although the Pixel 8 is far from being released, we have been seeing rumors and leaks regarding it for a while now. Last month, a Twitter tipster @Onleaks posted a tweet pointing out the dimensions of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro.

I checked again and it seems I indeed measured diagonals the wrong way…🤦🏻♂️#Pixel8 = circa 6.2"#Pixel8Pro = circa 6.7"
That being said, overall dimensions remain accurate. Sorry for the mistake…😅 pic.twitter.com/wxYfFO2Djg
Now, the latest Tweet from the CEO of the displays supply chain @DSCCRoss hinted at Pixel 8 size being downsized from 6.32” to 6.16”. While Pixel 8 Pro remains the same size as Pixel 7 Pro.
From DSCC's new monthly OLED smartphone service:— Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) April 12, 2023
– Google Pixel 8 – 6.16", down from 6.32" on the Pixel 7
– Google Pixel 8 Pro – 6.7", same as Pixel 7 Pro
Both start panel production in May.
A 6.16 display would make the Pixel 8 in the same line as the smaller iPhone variants and Galaxy S23. But this would also indicate high pixel density and a better screen-to-resolution ratio.
We can also expect the Pixel 8 to come with a 90 Hz refresh rate while the Pixel 8 Pro with a 120 Hz refresh rate. But with the Pixel 7a rumored to come with 90 Hz, we can maybe see 120 Hz making wild card entry into the standard Pixel 8.
According to render design leaks for Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, The Pixel 8 is going to have a Flat display while the Pro version would likely be curved. These are only leaks. The official ‘leaks’ would be showcased by Google on its Google I/O, which is happening on the 10th of May.
