The Google Pixel 8 series finally has a launch date set for October 4. On this day, the Pixel 8 Pro and the standard Pixel 8 are expected to arrive alongside a Pixel Watch 2. Ahead of the launch, the Pixel 8 devices have reportedly hit the FCC, giving us more of a glimpse at what to expect.

As noted by 9to5Google, the FCC has published a set of device paperwork filed by the search giant on Wednesday. These devices are believed to have GKWS6, G9BQD, GZPF0, GPJ41, and G1MNW model numbers. The GKWS6 model number was also spotted back in May at Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), revealing the Pixel 8’s wireless charging capabilities, which unfortunately is still limited to 12W.
