  • Samsung is trolling Google over the notch on its new Pixel phone

The Pixel 3 features a 5.5-inch screen display with 2160x 1080 pixel resolutions. For instance, the new Pixel phones support wireless charging.

The Pixel 3 will cost Rs. 71,000 for the 64GB variant in India and up to Rs. 80,000 for the 128GB storage variant. In fact, an analytics firm assessed that only 80,000 Pixel 2 phones had been bought in India since their launch. Buyers across the European Union can expect the same pricing structure for the Pixel 3 phones, assuming Boulanger posted accurate information. The Google Pixel 3 XL, on the contrary, shifts your status icons a step below which means that it creates an all-new layer below the black bar taking up space and thereby defeating the whole goal of a near bezel-free phone.

This is the conclusion insiders came after the screening of mobile devices Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

As its previous models, the Pixel 3 features a Pixel imprint and an active edge. "There's even a new feature known as 'Call Screen" that will answer calls for you, transcribe the conversation, and let you choose to join the call, hang up, or send it to and report as spam.

There aren't many other details available or a list of headphones that can use Google Translate like the Pixel Buds, but if you own a pair of Assistant-optimized cans, give it a try. This continues with the latest generation, but next week's launch also sees the app get a long-awaited feature.

O2 is offering the Pixel 3 from £43 per month and the Pixel 3 XL for £45 per month with both needing a £30 upfront payment. The updated feature comes with select Marvel characters.

Whilst the current Pixel 2/2XL offers the option between traditional software buttons and gesture navigation, Google claims the upgrade represents a shift in "all Android phones going forward". If accurate, that's when the Pixel 3 should be available in stores across the world. Pick any of these and you will have the same camera experience.

Google's new Pixel phones mirror the industry trend moving the devices toward lusher, bigger screens and add new twists on the camera for taking better selfies and other pictures. And when Samsung phones get dinged in the press for not matching up to the Pixel, it prods Samsung to follow Google's lead.

Both phones go on sale in the United Kingdom on November 1, although they're available for pre-order now.
