The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL left consumers wanting more and more. Google believes in innovation and bringing the latest and greatest to its users. Google at its annual launch event has just unveiled its latest smartphones offerings for 2018, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. The plethora of leaks left very little for the company to actually unveil about both smartphones. Nevertheless, for the very first time, we’re actually getting an official glimpse into the looks and specs of the Pixel 3 And Pixel 3 XL.
Both smartphones feature a larger screen size in comparison to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The Pixel 3 features a 5.5-inch screen size while its bigger brother sports a larger display size of 6.3-inches. One thing which both devices share in common is the single rear-facing camera. Google has in a way made a very firm statement, believing in its smartphones, by implementing a single rear-facing camera. In a way, the company is sticking to tradition as well as at the same time challenging a popular tradition of 2018 in the smartphone market.
It seems like the company is focusing on its front-facing cameras as both devices feature dual-front facing selfie shooters. The Pixel 2 earned quite a reputation for its camera performance. Perhaps the Pixel 3 can follow in its golden footsteps. For the first time in history, the Pixel smartphones will feature wireless charging. Both smartphones will ship with Android Pie, Android v9.0. This means they will also have the added benefit of Google’s Digital Wellbeing feature.
The price of the Google Pixel 3 for the 64GB model starts at $799, the 128GB model is priced at $899. Talking about its bigger brother, the Google Pixel 3 XL will retail for a slightly higher price of $899 for 64GB and $999 for the 128GB model. Both are available now for pre-order from Verizon and unlocked through Google's online store.
