Google just announced the pixel 3 XL, the pixel 3 as well as some other Google home devices that are coming later this year, so without further ado, this is our first look at the Google pixel 3 XL as well as the Google Pixel 3 .
of course the pixel 3 XL has one of the biggest display notches in the industry, but if you’ve been following leaks from way before the event, then you already knew that .
new pixel phones are about the same size as their predecessors but they both have more screen area, the pixel 3 has a tall 5.5 inch 18:9 display with full HD+ resolution, so the bezels are much smaller this time around .
the larger pixel 3 XL has a 6.3 inch 18.5:9 display with its qhd+ screen going all the way to the corners, well not all the corners, the larger pixel 3 XL is a nice size but I think I’d prefer the one-handed usability on a smaller pixel 3 .
displays aside, Google says the front-facing speakers on both devices are 40% louder than before, the front-facing speakers also gave the smaller pixel its pleasant symmetry . Read More : Google Pixel 2
near the top speaker is the new dual 8 megapixel selfie camera and both versions have dual cameras, so you get the same photography experience from whichever size you choose .
the Google pixel 2 has one of the best fun facing cameras for all lighting conditions and Google figured the only way to beat its own camera is by adding a second wider camera .
this camera lets you take group selfies without a selfie stick, both phones are made of an aluminum frame that’s actually got a glossy finish and it looks pretty cool and they feature Google’s new hybrid coating on the backs .
Google made only a part of its rear glass shiny to keep the pixel signature windowed look, while the rest of the glass is frosted, all I have to say is I hope that it doesn’t chip, fade or get discolored over time .
like all the previous pixels there’s no headphone jack, but muted the pixel 3 is a bundled pair of USBC but included in the box, there’s also a 3.5 millimeter dongle to use with your own headphones .
Google still touts that the pixel 3 can take great portrait shots without needing a second camera, so while Google’s camera Hardware hasn’t really changed much since the pixel 2, it’s made improvements to HDR plus, Google’s imaging algorithm for crispy photos .
we expect the new camera to be a noticeable upgrade from the pixel 2, particularly in low-light, speaking of which Google is making night photos better with night sight, a feature that will take amazing handheld low-light shots, similar to what Huawei did with night mode on the Huawei P20 Pro .
that feature isn’t coming until a later update though, there are a few other features new to the camera like top shot, which uses the frames taken in a motion photo, to find a possibly better frame than the one that you shot .
there’s also photo booth mode, which is a really cool way to just act silly and let Google handle when to capture the photos .
there’s a new camera interface as well and a proper mode selector there are some new zoom sliders in both the front and rear cameras and the camera app also has google lens built-in .
the pixel stand and it will charge the pixel 3 with 10 watts wirelessly so the pixel 3 and 3xl both now have wireless charging, it also puts the phone in a docked mode and it shows you a kind of a visual feed from Google assistant .
the pixel stand goes for 80 dollars, while the pixel 3 starts at 799 or 899 for the pixel 3 XL, pre-orders are open now and both devices are available in three colors, clearly white, just black and not pink . Read More : Top 10 Smartphones in 2018
the white model has a mint accented power key, but the not pink color option has a bright orange one, meanwhile the just black is just black .
so why don’t you let us know in the comments if you’ll be upgrading to the pixel 3 and if you are let us know which device you’re coming from and if not let us know which device you’re gonna stay with .
