Google Pixel 3 Release Date and Key Features Revealed

  • Leak Google Pixel 3 may get smaller bezels… and a notch

The only thing that's now sure about the Pixel 3 is that this new smartphone line will come with the latest version of Google's Android operating system, which promises Home button gesture navigation and updated Google Assistant.

Coming back to the leaked image by Phone Designer which shows the Pixel 3 and 3 XL placed next to each other.

"The larger phone is designed with a almost edge-to-edge screen, except for a thicker bezel known as a chin at the bottom of the phone", Bloomberg's Mark Gurman wrote.

In terms of looks, the Pixel 3 XL looks identical to the P20 Pro, except of course the notch and the bottom chin.

A Bloomberg report claims that Foxconn will make Google's next generation Pixel handsets.

Google's Pixel phones are highly regarded, but their penetration in the smartphone market to date has been limited.

The protectors also seem to indicate that both Pixel 3 phones will have stereo speakers and dual front-facing cameras. Google is now working on the Pixel 3 devices internally, post which the mass production of the smartphones will commence. In fact, the smaller Pixel 3 will also have two lenses around front, with neither of the new flagships having an extra camera on the back - unlike the rest of 2018's flagship phones. However, Google apparently intends to stick with just one single camera on the rear. He added that his sources said the smaller model would look like the Pixel 2, with no notch or edge-to-edge look. This comes as a surprise, as last year's Pixel 2 XL display faced a lot of criticism, while Samsung's panel didn't receive any such hate. You can keep up with the latest Pixel 3 updates right here. The company is expected to launch its new Pixel phones in October, which is a month after Apple typically introduces its new iPhones.

The rendering was created by Redditor Fondantanail and it gives us a close visual prediction on how the Pixel 3 XL will look like.

That means for the third year in a row, Verizon will be the sole US carrier partner for the new Pixel phones, according to a report from Bloomberg.

The upcoming Android release has baked-in support for notched displays, with the ability to adjust layout automatically according to which sections of the screen are non-functional.

Google also switches completely to the aspect ratio that you see with many new smartphones: 18: 9.
