Following months of teasers, leaks and rumors, a few hours ago Google finally made the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro fully official, and started taking pre-orders for them. And already, there’s a full teardown video for the Pixel 8, coming from YouTube channel PBKreviews.
The video goes into a detailed description of what you need to do in order to disassemble a Pixel 8, bit by bit, starting with a very simple step: taking out the SIM tray. That is, of course, the easiest step, it’s all more complicated from there.
In the end, the Pixel 8 receives a 7 out of 10 reparability score, where 10 would be the easiest to repair and 1 would be the hardest. So it’s not bad, but not very easy to dive into by yourself either.
The Pixel 8 has a 6.2-inch 1080×2400 120 Hz OLED screen, a 50 MP main rear camera with OIS, a 12 MP ultrawide, a 10.5 MP selfie snapper, the Google Tensor G3 SoC at the helm, 8GB of RAM, 128/256GB of storage, and a 4,575 mAh battery with 27W wired and 18W wireless charging support. It runs Android 14.
