- The display on the base model Pixel 8 could be even smaller than earlier rumors suggested.

Small phones are a bit of a rare breed these days in the flagship phone market. While not exactly a compact phone — like the Zenfone 9 — Google’s Pixel 5 was a pocketable six inches. Just small enough to cater to those who lean toward smaller handsets. Now it looks like Google could go down that route again with the standard Pixel 8.
If you haven’t noticed, there’s been a bit of a trend with the Pixel line in terms of size. Almost every iteration of the device has a display that’s slightly bigger than the last. However, that changed with the base model Pixel 7, shrinking from the Pixel 6’s 6.4 inches to 6.32 inches. And rumors suggested that Google would shrink the display even further for the Pixel 8 to 6.2 inches.
