Google has unveiled its latest smartphones, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. There's good news, bad news, and a couple of surprises. 

The bad news is that there's a price hike compared to last year's Pixel 7, which could make the Pixel a less attractive competitor to the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S series for some. But there is a decent array of interesting new features too, including some new AI wizardry for photography (see our pick of the best camera phones for our current faves).
