Google Pixel 8 Pro to Feature a Built-In Thermometer: Report

In March 2023, initial renders of the upcoming Pixel 8 Pro were leaked, revealing a circular cutout beneath the flash. At the time, it was believed to be another camera module housed separately within the Visor. However, recent information suggests that Google had a different plan for this feature. Read on to learn more.

Is the Pixel 8 Pro Getting a Body Temperature Sensor?

Renowned tipster Kuba Wojciechowski (via 91Mobiles) has disclosed that the circular cutout is, in fact, a new temperature sensor designed to measure body temperature. This sensor will utilize a built-in thermometer within the smartphone itself, marking a unique addition to mobile devices. While it may sound unusual, it appears that Google is embracing this innovation.

Wojciechowski initially posted a video demonstrating the sensor’s functionality, but it was later removed. Nevertheless, another tech enthusiast, Neil Sargeant, shared the demo video on Twitter. According to the video, users must identify the sensor on the phone, bring it close to their forehead without physical contact, and tap the start button on the screen. It’s important to ensure that there are no obstructions on the user’s face. Next, users should move the phone from their forehead to their temple, and once the recording is complete (expected to take under 5 seconds), the phone will vibrate to display the results.

It is suggested that the built-in body temperature sensor will be exclusive to the Pixel 8 Pro model. As for other specifications, the Pixel 8 Pro is expected to feature a 6.52-inch QHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The phone is anticipated to have a boxy design and a flat display, a detail further confirmed by the video mentioned earlier. It may be powered by the Tensor G3 chipset with AI enhancements, offer a triple-camera setup, and more.

Concrete details about the Pixel 8 Pro are still scarce. Google is known for its secretive approach to product information, so we may have to await further revelations. Rest assured, we will keep you informed as more details emerge. Stay tuned to for updates, and feel free to share your thoughts on the thermometer sensor in the comments below.
