Google Pixel 8 Wins “Phone of the Year” at MWC 2024


As Mobile World Congress 2024 closes its doors for this year, we got to see GSMA once again give out its “Global Mobile Awards” for software and hardware products that have made significant strides and impacts in the industry – and yes, this includes smartphones.

As such, GSMA recently presented its “best smartphone” award of 2023 to the Google Pixel 8 series – this is on basis of “outstanding performance, innovation and leadership as determined through assessment of smartphones on the market during the period January 2023 to December 2023, by world leading independent analysts, journalists and influencers.”

Other devices mentioned on the shortlist include the Apple iPhone 15 Pro series, OnePlus Open/OPPO Find N3, Samsung Galaxy S23 Devices, and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5. Google’s Rick Osterloh likewise posted about the award on his official social media page.

Launched in October last year, the Pixel 8 features major upgrades especially within Google’s base-model flagship phones, including a Google’s Tensor G3 chipset, a smoother and brighter screen, new camera features, as well as new AI software features.
