Pixel 8 Pro
The Pixel 8 Pro comes with four upgraded cameras, delivering the best image quality ever seen on a Pixel phone.
- The 50MP main camera: the new camera's low-light performance is the best it's ever been, thanks to its larger main sensor and ƒ/1.65 aperture. This means better low-light photos and videos to capture stunning pictures when it's dark.
- The 48MP ultrawide camera: has also been upgraded, with a wider field of view making it perfect for capturing expansive landscapes and group photos using Macro Focus.
- The 48MP telephoto camera: offers the best zoom ever on a Pixel phone with 5x telephoto optical zoom. This means you can get close-up shots of distant subjects without sacrificing image quality.
- The 10.5MP front camera: has also been improved, with a new sensor and lens that produce sharper and more detailed selfies.
The Pixel 8's new Macro Focus mode lets you capture super sharp close-ups, even without an extra telephoto lens. This mode creates vivid colours and striking contrast in even the smallest objects, even in low light. And with Night Sight, you can capture high-quality photos even in the darkest conditions.
These upgrades also mean improved video quality, with sharper, smoother footage and clearer audio for both the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro. Audio Magic Eraser uses Google AI to reduce loud unwanted noises, such as cars, wind, or construction, with just a few taps.
The Google Pixel 8 range includes new safety features like Car Crash Detection, which automatically calls emergency services if you're in a severe car accident and can't do it yourself.
The Pixel Watch also has Fall Detection, which connects you with emergency services if it detects a fall.
Google AI & Google Assistant
A great feature in the new Pixel range is the Live Translate feature. You can have face-to-face conversations in 49 languages, transcribe messages in real-time, and translate signs. It's a perfect feature for travellers.
