Despite being a tech giant, Google’s smartphone market share is pretty low, which is understandable as Google is primarily a software, not a hardware company. But the company has been trying to further diversify into this space since the first Pixel was released in 2016, and more recently with the Google Tensor chipset launched with the Pixel 6 series, followed up with the Pixel 7 series.
The Google Pixel 7 has just recently hit the shelves, and the company hasn’t officially confirmed anything regarding the Pixel 8 series. But we can get an idea of Google’s release window by looking at the previous Google Pixels and their release dates.

We can therefore expect the Google Pixel 8 to debut in October 2023 and be released on shelves that same month. Google will likely hold an event in October’s first or second week to announce the Pixel 8 series.
