Google has just released the first leaked renders of its upcoming Pixel 8 Pro, and it looks like they've added a few new features to the device. The most notable change is the addition of a mysterious new sensor on the back of the phone, as well as a flat display instead of the curved one found on previous models.
The Pixel 8 Pro is said to have a 6.7-inch display with a centered punch-hole selfie camera, which is slightly smaller than its predecessor's 6.3-inch screen size. Additionally, according to OnLeaks, there appears to be some sort of mystery sensor on the back of the device that hasn't been seen before in any other Google phones.

The renders also suggest that Google may have opted for a flat display instead of the curved one found on their previous models. This could mean that users will get more accurate touch responses when using their devices, as well as improved battery life due to less power being used by the display itself.
Overall, it looks like Google has made some interesting changes with their upcoming Pixel 8 Pro device. We'll have to wait and see what else they have in store for us when they officially launch it later this year.
