Google appears to have settled on a style it loves since the Pixel 6 in 2021, even adopting the appearance for its midrange Pixel A phones. However, Pixel 8 Pro articles indicate the phone has a flat display rather than a curved panel.

Camera hardware modifications: The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro have 50MP sensors for their main cameras, and this is unlikely to change with the Pixel 8.
