Google Pixel 3 hands-on review, brochure; leaks overflowing ahead of official event

06 October 2018 2

Another day and let's welcome another leak of the Pixel 3 series, or, we should better say leak's.' There is hardly any day passed when we didn't see any leaks of or speculations on the Pixel 3 devices. In fact, they are coming like a flood and overflowing the internet. What not a mystery anymore is still getting attention because the D-Day is yet to come. So, no matter what how familiar you have become with the devices, the leaks will continue to bother or may help some enthusiasts in curbing their curiosity in case if they are desperately waiting for the launch.

A very early look

Well, while you’re in an active mode of absorbing all the leaks of the Pixel 3 devices, you shouldn’t forget taking these leaked hands-on images. These have been found on the tech site, Unwire.hk; the plus-sized Pixel 3 XL in Black can be seen. And, in not in its entirely weird state, the Pixel 3 XL has been showed in a side-by-side comparison with the iPhone XS Max.

The reviewer shows what you get inside the retail box - USB-A adapter, headphone adapter, USB-C earbuds, and the phone itself. Several low-light pictures of the Pixel 3 XL have also been shown. The tech site has included various shots of the device, so if you’ve been waiting eagerly then you must take a look at these clear hands-on images. The video has also been shown in the review, so you can head over to the source link provided below and look for more details.

The color options they may appear in

Next up is about the color options in which Pixel 3 device will come draped in. In an exclusive report, AndroidHeadlines shares the color variants of the two devices. According to the tech site, the information has been provided by its reliable source. The report tells the first two are the standard black and white color options that are relatively common to the Google Pixel phone line in general. So, there’s nothing new here, but another color variant which is Pink could also be coming. It should also be noted here that rumors have indicated another color option that could be “Mint.” Furthermore, the report refutes to the Mint color as it hasn’t received any indication on the same, so it believes only three colors are coming, at least at the launch event.

Spigen cases

Another one is about the case accessories which have been listed by Spigen already. You could easily ignore the mockups encased in the case lineup. Also, generic wallpapers have been used here not the wallpapers which got leaked recently. Looking at the listing, the company will offer its usual lineup of case types from slim fitting ones to the rugged ones. Other options include the transparent cases, built-in stands, drop protection. The majority of cases are available for purchase, though some are listed as “coming soon.”

The leaked brochure

No, don’t move, there’s still more to add here. A leaked Pixel 3 brochure has been spotted and unlike the recent leaks, this latest one refreshes you as it details a new feature which could be coming. The feature is mentioned "Top Shot" and the description reads, "Use Top Shot to get smiles, not blinks, and take groupie selfies that get everyone in the photo (without selfie sticks)."

So, it's been guessed that the Pixel 3 device may recognize smiles and blinks in the pictures with the help of AI and then sort out the best pictures. Also, the front-facing camera may include a wide-angle camera for group selfies. The marketing material also describes the Active Edge feature and another one which could be "Flip to disconnect," well according to the description, which is self-explanatory, "when you want to disconnect, just flip Pixel 3 face down to automatically turn off notifications."

Don't leave because Pixel 3 XL is now already up for sale as well

Well, what! yeah, we have the same feeling. It looks like the Google Pixel 3 series has silently been launched as well. The official unveiling will happen on coming Tuesday but the XL variant is now being sold before its official launch.

A Hong Kong retailer has already begun selling the device, according to Engadget. Engadget editor Richard Lai obtained the device from a Hong Kong retailer, and it does look like a real thing. So, you can know more about the cameras, colors, and more. It has a 12.2-megapixel main camera, as well as a pair of 8-megapixel front-facing cameras.

What you already know

Both models are expected to come with 4GB RAM (minimum), 64GB storage (minimum) and powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. They will primarily be different from each other in terms of screen size (rumored to be 6.71-inch vs 5.4-inch), the display resolution (rumored to be 2960 x 1440 vs 2160 x 1080) and the battery capacity (rumored to be 3430 mAh vs 3000 mAh). Both models are also expected to once again feature Active Edge functionality, USB Type-C connectivity, and rely heavily on AI features in general. All of which will be underwritten by Android 9 Pie.
