Google’s newest addition to the Pixel family is bringing a brand-new processing chip, an upgraded camera, and most importantly, some brand-new color options. As usual, when a new smartphone comes out, one of the things people look forward to the most is finding out what new color variants are available, and the Pixel 8 is no exception. This article will explain the Google Pixel 8 colors, so you know what shades you’ll be able to get this next-gen device in.

Google Pixel 8 case color options

The design of the Pixel 8 so far is in keeping with the overall sleek aesthetics of the Google Pixel phones, but is receiving rounded corners similar to the look of other top-market devices. By the looks of things, Google’s latest phone is also set to receive some new colors. Google isn’t particularly loyal to recurring color schemes, so it’s likely we’ll see something different to the Lemongrass and Hazel colors of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. Each Pixel 8 phone will have three color options: two of these were first confirmed by Google in a sneak peek preview of its new devices – a pale pink Pixel 8 and a soft beige Pixel 8 Pro. Now that the device has officially launched, here are the colors of the Google Pixel 8’s:

We now know that the Pixel 8 will come in 3 color options:

  • Rose (light pink)
  • Hazel (grey)
  • Obsidian (black)

Previous rumors of a Jade color variant for a vanilla option of the Pixel 8 seem to have died down now that we’ve moved passed the release date. It is possible that the Jade color scheme could be launched at some point, in a similar way to the Pixel 7a received a fourth exclusive color option, a bright “Coral”, on the Google Store, but this is not confirmed.

Google Pixel 8 Pro colors

The Pixel 8 will also be getting a classic black color scheme, as well as an off-white and an attractive light blue.

  • Bay (light blue)
  • Porcelain (off-white)
  • Obsidian (black)

For both phones, the outside frame and camera bar will match the color of the case for a cohesive and modern look. As well as new colors, it seems that the Pixel 8 phones will differ in other ways to the previous Pixel’s. This includes a better battery life, an upgrade to the Tensor G3 processor, and a more compact size and weight.

Final thoughts

Overall, we’ve been treated to a few new color schemes for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, as well as getting Pixel Watch 2‘s that match. However, as well as getting a rounded look and Gorilla Glass Victus cases, the Pixel 8 devices are focused on pushing the boundaries of on-device AI, and will be the first phones rolled out with Android 14.
