The most notable detail is the fact that the phones will get up to seven years of software updates. The leaker clarified that this doesn’t necessarily mean seven years of OS updates, likely referring to security updates. This would still be a major improvement over the likes of Samsung, OPPO, and Xiaomi, as these brands offer up to five years of security patches.

Otherwise, we reported on most of these specs before. But it’s worth noting that the Pixel 8 will apparently ship with Gorilla Glass Victus protection while the Pro model is set to use Gorilla Glass Victus 2. The newer protective glass standard is designed to withstand concrete drops. So you might want the Pro model if you’re prone to dropping your phones. Otherwise, both handsets are set to offer IP68 ratings.

This wasn’t the only major leak in recent days, as a major Pixel 8 camera features leak detailed new capabilities like manual controls, facial expression edits, and more. Another leak has also dished out apparent US pricing, suggesting a price hike for the standard Pixel.
