Google Pixel 8 Pro is the newly unveiled smartphone which will be the first hardware to run Google’s generative AI models on-device.

Google Pixel 8 Pro Overview

Osterloh stated onstage at an event today that the Google Pixel 8 Pro‘s custom-built Tensor G3 chip, which is meant to accelerate AI workloads, can run “distilled” versions of Google’s text- and picture-generating models to power a variety of applications, such as image editing.

“We’ve worked closely with our research teams across Google to take advantage of their most advanced foundation models and distil them into a version efficient enough to run on our flagship Pixel,” Osterloh stated.

Google was able to improve Magic Eraser, its post-processing tool for touching up photos, thanks to on-device models, so that it can erase larger objects and individuals smudge-free. This improved Magic Eraser generates new pixels to fill in the gaps left by anything eliminated from a shot, resulting in a higher-quality completed image.

Pixel 8 Pro zoom will improve as well, thanks to a new on-device model that can “intelligently” sharpen and enhance photo details.

The advantages of on-device processing extend to audio recording as well. The recording app on the Google Pixel 8 Pro will soon give summaries of recordings that recap the highlights of meetings.

A huge language model on the will also fuel smart answers in Google’s keyboard app, Gboard. The improved Gboard will provide “higher-quality” reply recommendations with improved overall conversational awareness.

With the exception of Magic Eraser, which will be accessible on the Google Pixel 8 Pro available for preorder now and will launch on 12 Oct 2023. AI features will be available via an update in October.
