Finally, after lots of leaks and rumors, the Google Pixel 3 and 3XL are official now. The Google Pixel 3 starts from $799, while the Pixel 3 XL starts from $899.
Since the specs and design of the phone were already leaked, Rick Osterloh, senior vice president of hardware started the event by showing the AI tool the pixel will be able to use. The Google seems to be focused more on software, which is obvious. Since it already has the world’s best AI software, implementing it smartphones is no big deal for them.
Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL comes with a wide-angle front camera and bigger screen size
The improvements can be seen in Pixel 3’s camera, using AI on the data collected from millions of Google image. A feature called Top Shot picks the best moments to take a picture, of course, it’s using AI. Other features include Super Res Zoom, improved zooming without losing image quality, and Night Sight, used in low-light settings. Besides the camera, the virtual assistant also gets more improvements.
The Pixel 3 measures 5.5 inches and the Pixel 3XL measures 6.3 inches on size, both phones are larger than last year. Another interesting feature is the notch, Pixel 3XL has it and Pixel 3 doesn’t. Bezels on sides of the screen are quite narrow, however on the top and bottom, there is a little bit extra. Both sides of the devices are made by glass and protected by Gorilla Glass 5, and a metallic frame between them.
Talking about the internal specifications, it’s usual, as seen in every other Android flagship. It also packs Snapdragon 845 chipset, 4GB RAM, 64GB/128GB internals storage with no expandable option. It packs a Non-removable Li-Ion 3430mAh and 2915mAh battery in Pixel 3XL and Pixel 3 respectively. Actually, besides the notch, screens size and battery size, everything else is exactly the same.
Taking about its availability, it will be released on October 18 in the US and November 1 in UK and Australia. In other markets, it will be launched eventually. However, in Nepal, we don’t think it will available at all, officially. But you can get it in the grey market.
