Google’s Pixel 3 and 3XL Renders Leak

Google’s Pixel 3 and 3XL Renders Leak

Many in the Android enthusiast community are looking forward to the release of Google's upcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL flagship Android O smartphones.

Dimensions meanwhile apparently come in at 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9mm for the Pixel 3 and 158 x 76.6 x 7.9mm for the Pixel 3 XL, though in both cases they're said to widen to 8.6mm where the camera sticks out.

Specification details are scarce at the moment, however, the report notes that both the smartphones will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC, and at least the larger variant will have a 6GB RAM. We expect the Pixel 3 to be priced similarly to its predecessor, while the Pixel 3 XL is likely to start at somewhere around the Rs.75,000 mark in India. Those rumors had the larger of Google's next phones adopting a notch on its display, just like a host of other Android phones this year.

As for the Pixel 3, its renders show the same camera features - two on the front, one on the back. What may disappoint the fans of Pixel smartphones it that the Pixel 3 XL will not be featuring dual rear cameras. While it's not entirely clear what this is for, the dual-camera system could enable some sort of front-facing portrait mode or, alternatively, could be part of Google's take on facial recognition. And that's exactly what these CAD renders show, along with the two-tone back design that - for better or for worse - has become the Pixel's signature look. The display is also larger than last year's version, coming in at 6.2 inches.

With Google borrowing features from HTC's latest flagship, it probably won't come as a surprise to learn that the engineering talent that the firm acquired from HTC earlier this year will be heavily involved in developing the new devices.

While this isn't the juiciest of leaks, tipster Ice Universe is claiming seperately that LG Display will be supplying OLED panels with notches to Google. Going by the images, the Pixel 3 will not feature a notch.

The Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were launched in India at Rs.61,000 and Rs.73,000, respectively.
