Engadget gets hands-on with unreleased Pixel 3 XL

Nichole VegaOct 11, 2018

Will it magically remove the notch? All we can do is wait until anything goes official.

The Pixel 3 is tipped to come with a 5.5-inch 1080p display as per recent reports, which is 0.5-inches bigger than the Pixel 2 thanks to smaller bezels. Both the XL and the standard models should also have some internal upgrades, such as the Snapdragon 845 CPU and wireless charging support.

In general, the Pixel Stand is Qi wireless charger that is created to bring Google Assistant experiences to users while their Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL being charged regardless in landscape or portrait position. Incidentally, the Pixel 3 XL is already selling in Hong Kong at HK$15,880 (approximately Rs 1,50,100). On the back, both the Pixel phones will get a single 12P sensor. The phones will come in black or white and the white version could have a green power button, giving it a new look. The base variant should come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Lastly, it works on any device running on Android 9 Pie or higher.

Last month, Amazon refreshed its line-up of Amazon Echo smart home speakers - Google's most direct rival in the market.

The Google Pixel USB-C earbuds are a wired pair of earbuds for Google's smartphones which promise to provide "smooth sound" with 24-bit audio.

Finally, Google will officially launch the device tomorrow and clear up all the rumors that have been building up. These next-generation handsets have suffered a torrent of leaks ahead of today, revealing the pre-order date, screen sizes, the return of the 'Active Edge' squeezable frame, as well as the three colour finishes available at launch.

Design-wise, the Pixel has remained largely unchanged but you will notice a notch has been added - a trend set by Apple on the iPhone X. It will reportedly be called Pixel Slate and can double as a lightweight and easily portable laptop.

We're also still not sure about a few things regarding the tablet. The interface will make the selection of camera modes much simpler and will have Google Lens running in background when the camera is opening, constantly analysing everything in the frame to provide you relevant information.
