The launch date for the Google Pixel 8 series has been announced, and it seems the accidental leaks of the phone were made as a prelude to the official announcement. Google has sent out invites for the “Made by Google event’ which basically refers to the Google Pixel lineup.

In addition to the first-generation Pixel Fold that was released earlier this year, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro will be the latest flagship products from Google. On October 4, Google will hold its Pixel launch event, which, like last year, will be held in New York City. On Tuesday, the Google Pixel 8 launch event will begin at 7:30 PM IST.

In relation to Android 14, it is said that Google Pixel phones would now receive up to five years of OS upgrades, which is comparable to the support that Apple provides to customers of its iPhones. The Tensor-powered Pixel models might be the only ones to receive these modifications from Google, enabling them to extend the length of their security upgrades.

The upcoming Pixel 8 series could include a 6.1-inch OLED screen for the smaller Pixel 8 and a 6.7-inch OLED screen for the larger Pixel 8 Pro model. The gadgets, which are expected to have up to 12GB RAM this year, might be powered by Google's upcoming Tensor G3 processor.  Android 14 is likely to come out of the box with the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro while the camera upgrades would be worth keeping an eye on.
