The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will debut in October and retain Verizon because exclusive US carrier, based on Bloomberg. That’s exactly the same sales strategy that had been in place for your prior two generations of Google’s smartphones; you’ll again have the ability to purchase the new phones unlocked direct from Google.
The XL-sized Pixel 3 will reportedly possess a notch on top of its display. That shouldn’t come as being a surprise if you think all the changes Google has created to make Android P more friendly to show cutouts. It will include a “nearly edge-to-edge screen” along with a chin at the end. So, examine the OnePlus 6 or LG G7 and you’re probably on the right course as to what the Pixel 3 XL will look like. Bloomberg claims which the Pixel 3 XL’s notch won’t be as wide since the iPhone X’s, but says it’s “taller.” Maybe this means it cuts in to the display more?

The regular Pixel 3 will resemble the present Pixel 2, as outlined by Bloomberg’s report. So expect it to possess larger bezels compared to the XL again. That’s disappointing, also it might not look as impressive next to the remaining portion of the 2018 field of top-tier smartphones. It’d be great if both models shared the identical design, but that hasn’t happened since original Pixel. Earlier this week, images of purported screen protectors for that Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 were shared online. If these are typically accurate, at the very least the 3’s bezels aren’t as bad while they were within the Pixel 2. It looks much more a mini Pixel 2 XL.
Both models may have stereo speakers, and Google continues to ignore the buzz of dual cameras for the back. The company is apparently staying with a single rear camera on both phones. The Pixel 3 XL should have two camera lenses within the front (inside that notch), but Bloomberg doesn’t indicate how a secondary sensor will likely be used.
The team that Google acquired from HTC not too long ago for $1.1 billion is considered to be playing an important role inside development of both Pixel 3 devices, and Google is reportedly in talks with Foxconn to manage assembly. If that happens, Google won’t merely be overseeing design after which handing from the responsibility of manufacturing those products with a company like LG (Pixel 2 XL) or HTC (Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2); it’ll be money whole process.
Bloomberg’s report ends on something of any random note: Pixel 2 sales apparently increased after Google addressed early complaints around the 2 XL’s display with software updates and even more saturated colors. It seems such as only source to find out such a thing will be Google itself. And this scoop about new Pixel 3 phones comes just days before Apple’s WWDC 2018 conference. Quite a coincidence.
Pixel sales still lag badly behind Apple and Samsung smartphones from the US. After buying up a smartphone hardware team, Google need to be hoping which the third time’s the charm.
