Both the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro come with various upgrades, but is it future-proof? Let's find out.
Futureproof phones should have the latest hardware and software update for good number of years. Well, the Pixel 8 series has great specs, but what about the update?
For the first time in Pixel history, Google promises to provide 7 years of Software Update for both Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. This means the support will last until 2030.
