Rumours regarding the upcoming Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL has been flooding the internet. The Google Pixel 3 may have just been shown off in a Google Pay commercial and is rumoured to launch at an event in Paris as well on the 9th of October. An alleged hands-on image of the Google Pixel 3 XL surfaced online a little while ago. Rumour has it that along with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, Google will release a third budget variant of the Pixel device. However, it seems like that may not happen. In the latest news, a Chinese retailer has listed the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL for pre-order.
The store listing the devices for pre-order is JD.com. The listing reveals the price of the Pixel 3 and has even mentioned that neither of them have been launched as yet. According to this listing, the Google Pixel 3 is priced at Yuan 4,999 (approximately $729). If there is any truth in this, the price of the Google Pixel 3 XL should be a tad bit higher. What seems extremely fascinating is that the listing seems to showcase what appears to be press renders of both smartphones. The listing, however, does not mention any of the specifications of either of the devices.
Going by the images itself, both devices will have dual selfie cameras and the look of the notch on the Pixel 3 XL is quite questionable. As expected, Google is sticking to a single rear camera setup for both smartphones. Rumours have indicated that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be made of glass and thus will support wireless charging. Since none of this can be confirmed, it’s best to take it with a grain of salt unless its official launch.
