Display analyst reveals new Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro display details
Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) has revealed the display sizes of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. To recap, @OnLeaks provided renders of both smartphones last month. While the leaker showcased the pair's dimensions and their designs, @OnLeaks did not offer specific display sizes.
According to Young, the Pixel 8 will have an even smaller display than @OnLeaks suggested. For reference, the Pixel 8 is rumoured to measure 150.5 x 70.8 x 8.9 mm, which should be approximately 2.4 mm narrower and 5.1 mm shorter than its predecessor. While the Pixel 7 ships with a 6.32-inch display, Young claims that Google has designed the Pixel 8 around a 6.16-inch panel instead. Hence, the Pixel 8 should offer roughly the same screen size as the Galaxy S23 and the iPhone 14.
In comparison, the Pixel 8 Pro will be practically the same size as the Pixel 7 Pro. Accordingly, it will contain a 6.7-inch display like its predecessor. However, Google will return to offering flat displays across both its flagship smartphones for the first time since the Pixel 4 series. Young adds that Google will source both display panels from Samsung Display, which will enter mass production in May. Based on last year's schedule, Google may offer an early look at the Pixel 8 series next month during its I/O 2023 keynote before releasing the pair at a separate hardware event in the autumn.
