Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3XL to launch on October 9

E- Note 9

E- Note 9

If you see past year the company unveiled Pixel 2 and 2XL on October 4, so we can safely expect the launch of the new devices on the same date or somewhere close to the same date. Google is expected to price the Pixel 3 XL higher than the Pixel 3. This time though, Google plans to add a supersised notch above the screen.

That rear camera is 12.2MP and the two front-facing ones are 8.1MP each, according to yet another Russian leak. However, unlike numerous high-end phones this year, the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL are going to come with single rear camera. There is a USB-C charging/data cable, a 3.5mm to USB-C cable, and a USB-A to USB-C dongle all in white included in the box. On top of that, we also got to see the leaked benchmark test for the Pixel 3 XL revealing the specs of the device. Perhaps the highlight of Android Pie is the gesture-based navigation system.




This could allow Google to compete more directly with Apple; it is also rumored to be releasing three iPhones in 2018. As such, Google's upcoming smartphones may be further away from hitting the market than we think. Surprisingly, the front of the smartphones will have a dual camera setup.

What about the Pixel 3?

But Google tends to bring the Pixel phones to India within weeks of the global launch, and this year too it is going to be the same. All the same, the Pixel 3 XL's display interruption looks to be deeper than that of the iPhone. Rumours are afloat that the Pixel 3 will have slimmer bezels than the Pixel 2, although exactly details are not known. It runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, has 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage, and a 3,430mAh battery. The display on the 3 is likely to measure 5.3 inches while the 3 XL would have a 6.2-inch display.
