Last week Google teased a new colorway for its Pixel 8 Pro, which was due to launch on January 25. In the meantime we've seen it in leaked press images, and now it's finally official.
So, you can purchase a Google Pixel 8 or Pixel 8 Pro in the new color called Mint, exclusively from the Google online store and Google Fi in the US. According to Jenny Davis, CMF design manager at Google, it's "a breath of fresh air and a cool spring breeze. It's serene, yet not boring. It's a luminous color that really invites the mind into a state of calmness - energized calmness".
It joins Rose, Obsidian, and Hazel for the Pixel 8, and Porcelain, Obsidian, and Bay for the Pixel 8 Pro. As you'd expect, the specs haven't changed at all - these are the same Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro we've known since their introduction last October. The only thing that's new is the color, which was revealed in collaboration with street artist Ricardo Gonzalez, aka @itsaliving.
As a special way of introducing the new hue, he painted over an existing Google Pixel billboard in New York City with the new Mint color, as you can see in the video above.
If you get a Pixel 8 or Pixel 8 Pro in Mint by February 3 at 11:59 pm PT, Google will throw in a free case with a matching color.
