Just a little over two weeks ago, the Google Pixel Watch 2 appeared in an FCC listing, revealing a few key details. 

The Google Pixel 8 series has followed the same route and is now on the regulatory agency’s listings.

The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro FCC listing was discovered by the folks over at the 9to5Google. It looks like the regulatory agency has finally filed Google’s paperwork. 

The listing has revealed a few details. Google’s approval application consists of five devices with different model numbers: GKWS6, G9BQD, GZPF0, GPJ41, and G1MNW. 

Although we are looking at five model numbers here, Google plans to release only a Pixel 8 and a Pixel 8 Pro, as far as we know.

So, the rest of the model numbers might be variants of the smartphones. 9to5Google points out that previously, Google has launched versions of the Pixel phone with or without mmWave 5G connectivity.

That’s all the details the new FCC listing has provided. 

The Pixel 8 series will feature a few notable improvements over its predecessor. Those include an upgraded primary camera and the new Tensor G3 chip.

There’s also a rumored thermometer sensor and a larger battery for the base model. 

There could also be a few other improvements we still don’t know about. But we don’t have to wait too long for them. 

The appearance on the FCC listing indicates a launch is imminent. Google has confirmed that, as invites for a Made by Google event have gone out for October 4.
