After months of leaks that came from spec layouts to actual hands on demos with photo samples.
Google announce on October 9th the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Their flagship devices are very similar except for the screen size. The Pixel 3 will feature a 5.5″ FHD+ OLED screen with 443ppi with HDR Support which carries over to the camera as well. As the name suggests the XL version will bump up to 6.3″ with the same FHD+ OLED screen with 523ppi though it does lose the HDR support.
Outside of those changes both phones have the following specifications. Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Octacore processor, 12MP camera with dual pixels with Autofocus and portrait mode and optical/electronic image stabilization, 4GB of RAM, up to 128GB of storage and unlimited photo uploads to Google Photos, and audio in both comes from dual front facing speakers. It will run Android 9 Pie with guaranteed three years of updates. Active Edge is still around for navigation through squeezing the phone.
Google has given them unique color names as well: Clearly White, Just Black and Not Pink. They are full glass designs with a matter texture in the back for easier grip and wireless charging.
If there is an Android device to use out there it would be the Pixel 3. Though with the hardware and features it makes for a very underwhelming device overall.
Pricing will start at $799 and preorders are open now.
