Google Officially Announces the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

Google on Tuesday officially took the veils off Pixel 3 and a bigger Pixel 3 XL smartphone to take on the likes of flagship devices by Apple and Samsung. It'll arrive first to the US, UK, and Australia, and it'll come with six free months of YouTube Premium.

The device will be available for pre-order today for $149 and will become available at retail stores on October 22. At least the Pixel 3 still offers a generous 5.5-inch display size, so users aren't necessarily sacrificing too much in going down a size if the notch on the Pixel 3 XL is too much of an eye-sore to overcome.

As for the specifications, here we look at your modern Android hardware 2018: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB and 128 GB of memory and 2.915 mAh or 3,400 mAh. The more compact Pixel 3 sports a 5.5-inch again as compared to a 5-inch display on its predecessor.

What is the price of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL in India? The wide-angle camera provides a field of view of 97 degrees. You can even add to your shopping list or make a purchase with Google Express. New modes include Top Shot which recommends the best shot (in case you have photos with people smiling with closed eyes), Photobooth mode that automatically detect and capture smiling faces, group selfie that allows more people to squeeze in the frame and new AI stickers which include Marvel's Avengers characters and Childish Gambino. The phone is made of glass, which means that Pixel 3 phones will be the first Google Pixel phones to support wireless charging. The company now sells Chromecast Audio dongle as dedicated separate audio streaming device. There is no headphone jack again on either of these two devices. There is also an optional backlit keyboard accessory, along with a stylus.
