Adjust Comment Print

While the smartphone world is now moving from dual cameras to tripe cameras, Google is still sticking with the single rear camera.

We're fully expecting the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL to be announced at the event, considering it was this time past year that Google announced the Pixel 2 smartphones. Coming to the pricing, lists the Pixel 3 at RMB 4,999 which is about $729 putting is just around the territory of Apple iPhone XR, which is priced at $749.

That being said, some live images of the Pixel 3 XL (attached above) have also surfaced online.

So far, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL's designs have leaked like a bucket after an encounter with a shotgun. There's still no manual mode, and the rear camera is 12MP, but can not shoot 60fps 4K videos. These renders don't show anything new or different in terms of design.

Looking at the screenshots, the inventory features exactly the kind of Pixel 3 XL renders swirling over the worldwide web. However, the company is now offering dual cameras on the front. The Pixel 3 XL comes with a big, ugly notch, and there are even conspiracies surrounding the 3 XL's notch, as many believe the 3 XL that Google will announce on October 9 will come without a notch. Both these leaks do not come from an official source, and hence should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Google is apparently planning to launch the Pixel Stand, one of the official accessories created to work with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

It is said to backed by a 3430mAh battery, which will support fast charging, and wireless charging.

The home screen of the phones shows that both the Pixel phones will run on Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box.

Today's leak also spills some information on the Pixel 3 XL's cameras. It is going to be powered by the latest Snapdragon 845 chipset, and will have up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
