Here’s a closer look at how flat the Google Pixel 8 Pro screen is

Based on CAD view comparison

The Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are still more than six months away from their debut. However, the latest leak has given us our first detailed look at the major design changes Google is planning for the 2023 Pixel, including a flatter screen, a more rounded back, and housing the camera array inside a single dial. Now, the source of these leaks has shared close-up CAD render comparisons of the Pixel 7 Pro and Pixel 8 Pro, showing just how flat the display will be on the upcoming Pixel.


From the CAD rendering shared by @tweet On Twitter, we got a good idea of ​​how the Pixel 8 Pro’s flat screen compares to the Pixel 7 Pro’s curved screen. The difference may not seem like much, but the flat screen will help prevent accidental touches. It also means that you should easily find a good (and cheap) screen protector for the Pixel 8 Pro, as opposed to the Pixel 7 Pro.

Google may still use a 2.5D curved screen on the Pixel 8 series, but that’s something only time will tell. Don’t worry about thick edges and other weird details in CAD images, because they’re inaccurate.

The renders also give us a closer look at the Pixel 8 and 8 Pro’s screen’s rounded corners versus the current generation of Pixels. Google intends to use screens with more rounded corners on the new Pixels to complement its new rounded design. Hopefully, Google will also ensure that the curvature of the system’s UI elements matches the rounded edges of the screen.

We’re not big fans of curved-edge displays, but almost all of our favorite Android phones use curved displays. But it looks like Google is preparing to buck the trend with the Pixel 8 Pro this year. Samsung also took a similar direction with the Galaxy S23 Ultra this year. Although it did not completely abandon the curved edges in its flagship phone for 2023, the screen has become flatter than before.
