Google's current Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are one of the best phones, because of their cameras, great performance and home-made Android software. However, Google's upcoming pair of flagship phones, expected to be called Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL, can be radically different
compared to its predecessors. (The company is rumored to launch a as well.)
It is not surprising to consider
went through some of its own shakeup when it bought HTC's phone product group in September 2017 and had since folded it into its own business. The company's upcoming Android P operating system (now in its fourth beta stage) also has as multiplayer AR and improvements to its already superior voice assistant that is not found on any iPhone (yet).
But with the Pixel 3 series, Google wants to avoid the errors associated with Pixel 2 XL, which got flax for incineration and other errors related to the phone's OLED display.
These errors resulted in a lot of media attention, which meant some initial positive reviews with warnings. It has also added a glossary to Google's warranty policy, which was eventually expanded. (Note that the iPhone X's OLED display is not immune from incineration either.)
As for design changes coming to Pixel 3, there has been a lot and Google's annual I / O conference gave a lot of rumors to rumor mills.
We've collected the big buzzen on Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL below, and will continue to update this place regularly with news and rumors.
Editor's Note : This piece was originally published June 10, 2018 and is updated frequently.
Pixel 3 XL Can Have Front Speakers
According to a recent case from Gizmo China, Pixel 3 XL will have a flaunt cut and two forward facing cameras, both of which have been confirmed by previous rumors (described below).
The apparently leaked images also show that the speaker will be placed on the front of the lower part and the fingerprint reader will still be located on the back of the camera.
Pixel 3 will be coming soon in October 2018?
Google introduced the original Pixel and its super-sized sibling, Pixel XL, October 4, 2016. Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL debuted exactly one year later. We have every reason to believe that the company will remain faithful in this plan, introducing the next phone in October.
The first phone with Android P
The next version of Google's Android OS is about motion navigation, and it would be natural for Google to debut it on its upcoming flagship. Google already showed three beta versions of Android P, but we still do not know what P stands for yet.
Because iPhone X also has a new gesture-based navigation, Google's leaders insist that they've been working on their new interface for more than a year and driven by a desire to reduce the number of physical buttons on Android- phones.
Google may give Pixel 3 a notch
This requires a small triangulation. We already know that Android P supports telephones with hack. And, as mentioned earlier, we assume that Google will debut Android P on Pixel 3. As such, the reputation of a chopped Pixel 3 is quite likely.
And while Google may refuse to follow another company with gesture-based navigation, it is undeniable that Apple has brought hack design toalthough Essential Phone was the first to actually send it.
Your phone may have wireless charging
After deleting its second beta of Android P, XDA Developers found evidence in the OS code that indicates wireless charging. This rumor is also reinforced by another speculation that the new Pixel can(ideal for wireless charge versus metal bodies). Google has created wireless charging phones before (like Google Nexus 6 and Google Nexus 5), but stopped in 2015 with the launch of Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. Perhaps it brings back the function, but due to the wireless charging features of iPhone 8 and iPhone X.
Pixel 3 XL can have two forward-facing cameras, new screen
In addition to the chopping, Bloomberg said that Pixel 3 XL will have an edge-to-edge display and two front-facing cameras. The smaller Pixel 3, however, does not want any of these things.
The German news site WinFuture, which has a fairly reliable record of technical rumors, also reported that Google will collaborate with Taiwan manufacturer Foxconn (same company as making iPhones) to build "new display hardware."
According to the first batch of allegedly(because we're sure it's getting more), Pixel 3 can not look for anything else predecessor. Again, these images were not independently controlled, but the pictures show a phone with a speaker grille built into the bottom, a rear camera and Pixel signature glass color.
It could be a premium Pixel phone for battle 2018 iPhones …
Tech blog Droid Life reported that Google has three new Pixel phones in the tube for 2018. This trio can contain a mysterious higher end version – maybe meant to compete with $ 999 iPhone X – in addition to the standard and XL models. As a reminder, 64GB Pixel 2 starts at $ 649 (£ 629 or AU $ 1,079) and Pixel 2 XL starts at $ 849 (£ 799 or AU $ 1,399).
It was noted that frequent tipster Evan Blass tweeted that, according to a "trusted source", Google will deliver a Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL – as well as the next generation of Pixel Buds and a Pixel brand watch. If he is right, we are back to look at two phones, not three. Pixel 3 XL may need to take on 2018s iPhones alone.
Or a super-cheap Pixel phone?
Google says to be developing a cheap "medium-sized" pixel for emerging markets that can be debuted this summer, according to Economic Times.
It is not clear if Google will bring this budget model to the United States; timing is not synchronized with Pixel's regular October debut. But such a phone would certainly make an interesting foil for Apple's rumored iPhone SE 2, as we could see in September, when the iPhone usually starts.
