Among the two, the Pixel 8 Pro is the most feature packed. And the great part is that it comes with a lot of hardware upgrades.

Screen

On the front, the Google Pixel 8 Pro features a 6.7-inch LTPO OLED panel called the ‘Great Actua.' It boasts a higher peak brightness than its predecessor at 2400 nits. The screen also features a dynamic refresh rate, ranging from 1Hz to 120Hz.

For selfies and video calls, the Google Pixel 8 Pro boasts a new 10.5MP sensor. It features a wide field of view, allowing users to take more of the shots. While it's not directly related to the camera, Google has integrated a new temperature sensor next to the cameras of the device.

It's a Pixel 8 Pro-exclusive sensor that can read the temperature of skin and objects. Reportedly, the sensor is a Melexis MLX90632 unit and its sole purpose is to read temperature. That means the sensor won't be offering any clever photography tricks or features.

But that doesn't mean that there are no advanced camera features on the Google Pixel 8 series. There are a lot of that, to be honest. For example, you have Photo Unblur, Best Take, Magic Eraser, and Macro Focus. The Pixel 8 Pro also comes with new Pro controls, which, again, is exclusive to this device.
