New Pixel 3 leak tells us Google is really serious about selfies

Monday, 03 Sep, 2018

According to screenshots that came from the phone, the two front-facing cameras are each 8-megapixel sensors.

The leaked images have been uploaded to Imgur and linked to Reddit. The images show that Google continues with the dual-tone design for the Pixel this year. The leaked Pixel 3 XL units which are present in the wild have got no sign of new face based security. Unlike previous listings, the ones for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have nothing in the way of diagrams. The leak also gives some insight on what's under the hood. The smartphone is seen sporting a white coloured glass back, hinting at wireless charging capabilities. Evidence relies on a Canadian Google and looking for influencers mentions this date, and history tells us that new Pixel's phones have been unveiled on October 4 100% of the time.

Going by the fresh images, we can see that the smartphone will have a 5.5-inch 18:9 display with FHD+ 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution.

Among other things, the Google Pixel 3 phone offers 4GB RAM, which isn't that impressive considering rivals such as OnePlus 6 and Galaxy Note 9 pack up to 8GB RAM. A Redditor (via 9to5mac) now claims to have his hands on Pixel 3. Both will be accompanied by a lens that has wide aperture of F1.8.

In terms of imaging, Google is still implementing a single rear-facing camera for this device whose sensor and pixel count remain a mystery for now. It looks like Google is switching to a dual 8MP system up front for "Super Selfies".

Google Pixel 3 tipped to launch on 9 October. This year, these two are expected to make a new-and-improved return, with the XL said to have a better screen than the regular version. The rumour mill has, however, been quiet on the Pixel 3. It will be the first device to ship with Android Pie.

Recent rumors have alleged that Google is working on a Pixel smartwatch that will be released in 2018. This phone may come out in January next year and may have a price of around Rs 40,000.
