Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL Expected Release Date, Price and Features
Google is said to launch three new smartphones this year codenamed as “albacore,” “blueline,” and “crosshatch”. Two of them is said to be Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL while the third one will be a higher-end Pixel smartphone to compete 2018 flagship devices. For right now, we’ll talk about Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL.
Google has not revealed the launch date for Pixel 3 series. But, according to Android Authority, Google is affiliating with Foxconn subsidiary FIH Mobile to assemble Pixel 3 and 3 XL smartphones.
Back in 2017, the Pixel 2 and 2 XL had launched on October 4. The first Pixel smartphones were also launched in October. So, it is concluded that Google will launch Pixel 3 and 3 XL in the second half of 2018 or sometime in October.
The Pixel 2 and 2 XL prices were starting from $649 and $849. Therefore, it is expected that the standard Pixel 3 and 3 XL will get a starting price tag around $699 and $899 respectively. Bigger storage variants will be $100 more expensive than standard model.
Android 9.0 (P)
Google is carrying Android 9.0 (P) to their upcoming Pixel smartphones, and the Pixel 3 and 3 XL will be the first to get the newer Android OS version which is said to have optimized features, new themes and more beautiful interface.
Design and Display
An XDA developer leaked some renders which are showing that Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL are slightly different as compared to the predecessors. The Pixel 3 has no notch, measuring 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9 mm dimensions, and sports 5.4 inches AMOLED Display with 18:9 aspect ratio. On the other hand, the Pixel 3 XL has a top-notch, 6.2 inches Plastic OLED Display, 19:9 aspect ratio, and 158 x 76.6 x 7.9 mm dimensions. Both phones are rated at IP67 certification for dust and water resistance. The renders also claim that there is a Fingerprint Scanner on the back panel. You’ll find a USB-C port at the bottom but there is no 3.5 mm jack socket.
Ice Universe has also confirmed the design by posting the images of Pixel 3 and 3 XL. In the post, the Pixel devices have dual front facing cameras, stereo speakers, a fingerprint sensor and a single rear camera.
According to tech-radar, the Pixel 3 and 3 XL will have customizable active edges to squeeze for shortcuts, just like the HTC U11. The Squeezing sides also make it easier to call Google Assistant.
Google Pixel 2 had FHD+ and Pixel 2 XL had QHD+ resolution but some rumors told that both new Pixel flagships will have Full View display and 1440 x 2880 pixels resolution.
Dual Selfie Camera Setup and Face Unlock
According to Android Central report, the Pixel 3 and 3 XL will get Dual Selfie Cameras and a Primary Lens for photography.
Another report from tech radar suggests Google Pixel 3 will have improved camera app. It means you will get a better interface.
GSM Arena listed that Pixel 3 and 3 XL will have 12.2MP (f/1.8) Rear Camera, OIS, dual PDAF, laser AF, dual LED flashlights, panorama, HDR and Dual 8MP (f/2.2) Selfie Cameras.
It is expected that Google will offer more authentic facial recognition system for fast and secure Face Unlock.
The new Pixel smartphones are coming with the latest Android 9.0 so there will be many new emoji.
CPU and Memory
Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL will be powered by high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with Adreno 630 GPU. It will have an Octa-core processor which has a clock rate of 2.8GHz.
Android Authority guessed a 6GB RAM for Pixel 3 and 3 XL. Several sources claim 64GB and 128GB storage variants but our expectation is 128GB and 256GB variants for 2018 Pixel smartphones. The reason is that Google launched first Pixel smartphone with 32GB Storage and then the brand offered Pixel 2 with doubled storage (64GB) for the standard model but the price remains almost un-changed. So, it is likely that Google will again offer doubled storage (128GB) for Pixel 3 standard model.
Wireless Charging Support and Battery
According to rumors, Google used to equip glass back instead metal for Pixel 3 and 3 XL. It indicates that both handsets will be supported with Wireless Charging Option.
The Pixel 2 and 2 XL had 2700mAh and 3520mAh battery respectively. It is expected that the Pixel 3 will get at least 3000mAh battery while the Pixel 3 XL will have 4000mAh battery. Both devices will be supported with Fast Charging as well.
Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL will run CDMA, 3G, EVDO and 4G LTE, and supports Nano-SIM, NFC, Bluetooth v5.0, WiFi, NFC, and v.3.1 USB Type C reversible connector.
The Handsets are said to be available in Kinda Blue, Just Black and Clearly White.
