The mystery of that fifth sensor is now solved
If you remember those leaked factory CAD-based renders a couple of months back, you might recall that we were kind of puzzled at the time by the presence of a fifth sensor on the Pixel 8 Pro’s rear below the LED flash and next to the triple camera system.
Well, that’s where this new clip comes in, revealing that we’re not dealing with a macro or depth sensor or anything to do with photography at all but rather a potentially groundbreaking new way to measure a user’s body temperature.
Yes, the thing the Apple Watch Series 8 has been able to do for a little while and the feature Samsung is finally ready to enable on the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro is seemingly coming to your pocket this fall.
Of course, the Pixel 8 Pro’s built-in thermometer will try to take your temperature from your forehead, which may or may not prove more accurate and reliable than an on-wrist sensor.
