“The Pixel 3 is expected to flaunt a 5.84-inch 18:9 display, while the Pixel 3 XL to come with 6.2-inch 19:9 display”
The Pixel 3 and 3XL are the next-gen smartphones Google is planning to launch this year. The new flagship phones will be successors to the Pixel 2 and 2 XL (review), which are arguably one of the best camera smartphones out there. That said, it seems like the company is gearing up to launch its new flagships – Pixel 3/ 3XL – at Google’s hardware event on October 4th.
The leak came from Famebit – YouTube’s branded content platform – that allows brands to directly work with creators on projects and advertisements. Hence, for the Pixel 3 launch, Google might have approached the site to run a campaign in Canada. As spotted by This is Tech Today, and later Android Police, the Famebit posted an ad, allegedly backed by Google, that says, “the Pixel 3 phone is launching October 4th, 2018. Looking for Canadian Creators.” To recall, for the past three years, Google has been hosting the launch event for its hardware products on the same day.
Last year, the brand took to the stage to announce the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones, the Pixelbook, and Google Home Mini and Max smart speakers. It seems unclear, at the moment, what Google has on its kitty for this year? But, past rumours and leaks suggest that the Pixel 3 and 3 XL smartphones are one of them, along with a wireless charging dock allegedly called ‘Pixel Stand’.
As for the Pixel 3 and 3 XL specifications, they are rumoured to sport 5.4-inch 18:9 and 6.2-inch 19:9 displays, respectively. The Snapdragon 845 chipset will be ticking at their core paired with 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/ 128GB storage space. Moreover, it is likely to come with wireless charging, single rear camera, capacitative fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port and the upcoming Android 9.1 P OS pre-installed.
