As the launch date of the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro approaches on October 4, we have gained substantial insight into what these top-tier smartphones for 2023 have to offer. However, there was one key detail that had remained a mystery until now – the appearance of the new color options.

The Pixel 8 Pro is poised to hit the market with three distinct color choices: Obsidian, Porcelain, and Sky Blue. The inclusion of Sky Blue is particularly interesting, as it was recently seen in live images of the Pixel 8a. Notably, Obsidian is a color carried over from the Pixel 7 Pro, providing a sense of familiarity for Pixel enthusiasts.
On the other hand, the standard Pixel 8 will be available in Peony Rose, Gray, and Obsidian. Among these options, Obsidian is the sole color that retains its presence from the previous generation.
In addition to the color updates, both the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro will introduce a more rounded design, departing from the sharp corners of the Pixel 7 family. Furthermore, the camera sensor layout has been revamped on the Pixel 8 Pro, with all cameras now residing behind a single glass panel, a departure from the previous two-glass design. These changes promise to offer a fresh and distinctive look to Google’s flagship smartphones.
