Google Pixel 3 Release Date and Key Features Revealed

Google Pixel 3 Release Date and Key Features Revealed

A leaked image from Slashleaks shows two tempered glasses designed for the Pixel 3 series. Pixel 3 XL will come with an iPhone X-like notch display, something that is already seen on most of the recently launched smartphones. We have no idea what the back of the phone looks like so Phone Designer modeled it after the iPhone X. That's certainly a path Google may decide to take - if you're going to copy the front of the iPhone X, why not also copy the back? The company's Pixel handsets have been generally well-received among reviewers, but consumers have largely opted for alternatives, like Apple's iPhone and Samsung's Galaxy S and Galaxy Note devices.

Analytics company IDC disclosed that Google only managed to ship 4 million units of its Pixel handsets previous year.

Google has ditched the headphone jack for the device, instead relying on wireless or USB-C headphones.

It's probably a safe bet to make that Google will be launching new Pixel handsets later this year.

Bloomberg report further suggests that Verizon will be the exclusive carrier of the upcoming Google Pixel 3 devices in the United States.

Industry sources said there is a good reason why Google is adopting a new design for its Pixel 3 XL, and it has something to do with the company's future plans.

In line with that expectation, a very recent report by Bloomberg claims that Foxconn, which also builds for Apple, will be the manufacturer for the Pixel 3 smartphones. The report says the Pixel 3 XL has a "nearly edge-to-edge screen, except for a thicker bezel known as a chin at the bottom of the phone". According to the report, one of Google's next marquee phones will have that infamous cutout on the top of its screen.

The bigger Pixel will include two camera lenses on the front of the phone inside of the notch, one of the people said. Oddly, it will also continue to utilize a single rear camera lens, while all of the competition has long since moved to multiple lenses. Google's phones create this effect using a single lens and optimized software. As per the report from Bloomberg, the search giant will continue its two device strategy by launching the successors of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL that were launched a year ago.

Google reportedly wants the operating system to "conduct more tasks without action by users". However, the larger bottom chin ruins the meaning of having a notch altogether.
