Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL Specification: The leaks surrounding the Pixel 3 have been prolific, with little left to the imagination about these phones. Google has sent out invitations for the launch event, colours are being teased and there is not long until launch day.
Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL Specifications and Release Date
Google has officially invited the media to a 9th October event in New York City and a livestream relay in London.
However, Google might also unveil other devices during its event. There has been talk of a new Pixelbook as well as the leak of the Google Home Hub, which looks like a rival for the Amazon Echo Show.
The previous Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were announced on 4 October 2017, with pre-orders starting immediately afterwards. They began to hit shelves on 17 October so it is expected to be a similar time frame for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
Having the knowledge that the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL all featured the latest respective Qualcomm platform at the time of their launch we do expect Google to put the Snapdragon 845 platform in the new Pixel 3.
Knowing fully well that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL both feature 4GB of RAM and they both come in 64GB and 128GB storage options, neither of which offer microSD support for storage expansion. With many of 2018’s flagship smartphones offering 6GB or even 8GB of RAM and internal storage options up to 256GB, we would not be surprised to see the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL offer at least an increase in RAM, though the hands-on picture and video leak would suggest not.
The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL offer excellent camera performance, but you miss out on some of the novelty features offered by the dual camera systems on other devices, such as optical zoom. Google may stick to its guns with its single camera offering on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
