However, this new video unveils the purpose behind this mysterious sensor, debunking our initial assumptions. Contrary to expectations, it appears that this sensor is not related to photography, depth sensing, or macro capabilities. Instead, it introduces a potentially groundbreaking functionality—a way to measure body temperature.
Similar to the Apple Watch Series 8 and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro, the Pixel 8 Pro might offer users the ability to measure their body temperature. The video demonstrates how the built-in thermometer can accurately measure temperature by placing it in close proximity to the forehead. This alternative to wrist-based sensors could prove to be a significant advancement, offering a relatively hassle-free process for something no other modern smartphone can currently do.
This surprising addition sets the Pixel 8 Pro apart from its competitors and adds a unique selling point to the device. It's worth noting that the leaked video also confirms the design that was originally revealed back in March, aligning with the sleek and premium appearance of the Pixel 7 Pro.
While the video does not provide further details on specifications or features, it's likely that the standard Pixel 8 model will not include the thermometer sensor. However, the Pixel 8 Pro is expected to offer exceptional photography capabilities with its advanced optical zoom technology, likely powered by the Google Tensor G3 processor.
