By adding external display compatibility for both flagship models, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro may be taking a cue from Samsung’s list of features for its top-tier Galaxy smartphone series. This implies that owners of the incoming Pixel smartphone will reportedly have a ‘bigger’ Android workspace to experiment with when a monitor is attached through the USB-C socket.

Thunderbolt capability is not necessary for a USB-C port to accept external monitors because the connection may also recognize the DisplayPort alternative mode. The USB DisplayPort alternative mode becomes the best option as the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are not thick enough to handle those big HDMI connections.

According to Kamila Wojciechowska, who has developed a reputation for providing quite reliable information about upcoming devices and chipset launches, the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro will offer users greater use cases.

Unfortunately, certain information is left out, such as whether Google would require consumers to buy a separate dock in order to utilize desktop mode with its two flagship smartphones, or whether the mode will work with only a single USB-C connection when the smartphone and display are connected.
