With only a few days away from the official launch of the Pixel 3 series, we are heading further with more leaks and speculations. Now, a new video spotted on a dedicated page for the Pixel in Japan shows a feature that might make a return via the new series.
The video hints at the Active Edge feature which could make a return to the Pixel 3 devices. Also, this dedicated page for the Pixel 3 series clearly hints that the new devices will arrive in Japan as well. Those who are uninitiated should know that Google introduced squeezable Active Edge which when enabled launches the Assistant or silence the notifications as well. A user just needs to squeeze the two sides of the Pixel inward so as to make use of any of these two features.
The speculation on the possibility of the return of the Active Edge feature came a few months back. But, now this official video confirms that the feature is definitely returning. Practically speaking, this feature doesn’t do anything big on the device but it does offer an easy access to the things that would require a few steps to be invoked or started. We expect this feature to offer more service in the Pixel 3 devices.
Coming back to the video, it briefly also teases the phone’s various color variants. A brief glimpse of two people hugging shows black, white, green and pink lines which could probably be hinting at the colored variants of the Pixel 3 series.
Google is all set to engage you on October 9th with its new hardware. So stay tuned and keep reading new things about the upcoming Pixel devices.
