Google Determined to Chase the iPhone With Upcoming Pixel Upgrades

Google Determined to Chase the iPhone With Upcoming Pixel Upgrades

Last year LG made the Pixel 2 XL while HTC manufactured the Pixel 2.

As expected, Google will launch two models - Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. However the Pixel 3 XL will have a larger touchscreen, "nearly edge-to-edge" according to the sources though still with a "chin" at the bottom, and a notch cut out of the top of the display.

Yesterday, when I found the leaked tempered glass screen protector, I couldn't imagine how an actual device may end-up looking like, and I also really disliked the new design with the huge chin on the bottom (for the Pixel 3 XL). Hopefully none of these handsets suffer like the diabolical launch of the Pixel 2 range.

Lately, in Google's Pixel lineup smartphones, LG lost the contract to manufacture the future smartphone. A spokeswoman for Google declined to comment on the new phones. Also, the larger variant will apparently sport dual front-facing cameras, which is something new for the Pixel line.

This design will be a huge step by Google as the company will finally ditch the typical 16:9 aspect ratio display for its good.

Still, doing things like outright lifting audio files from an existing game to make your own remains highly illegal. The makers of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds haven't been happy about Fortnite Battle Royale ever since it started.

Google joined hands with an OEM partner for the first two generations of Pixel devices.

The new devices will have upgraded rear cameras and two front-facing cameras. It is speculated that the company could announce the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL post Apple's fall event which is scheduled for September this year. Read on for every detail that's emerged so far about the rumoured Google Pixel 3.

Google has ditched the headphone jack for the device, instead relying on wireless or USB-C headphones. The smaller protector, for the Pixel 3, still appears to have a top bezel, like the Pixel 2.

Since the Pixel 2 launch, of course, Google has welcomed a sizable chunk of HTC's phone team into its fold. In the US, Verizon will once again be the exclusive carrier and the phones will be available via Google's own store in an unlocked state for those who want to be able to use them with their existing carriers.

Either way, notches on smartphones are still subjective and there are still those that would love to acquire a flagship Android phone with a notch display. As ususal, we all have been expecting the smartphones to be manufactured by the HTC's Pix team that Google acquired previous year.
