The third generation of the Pixel iterations have finally been unveiled this week at an exclusive event in New York. And this time around, these new offerings by Google seem to be a whole lot better than ever before.
The Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 3 XL's most surprising feature upon their release is the bigger screens that expand from one edge to another. This is the first time in which the Mountain View, California-based firm has graced such format.
The Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 3 XL are noted for their two tall OLED panels. The latter features a 6.3-inch diagonal display and a 1440 x 2960 resolution with a high 532ppi. The base Pixel 3, on the other hand, packs a 5.5-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The former also comes with 10% more surface available than the Google Pixel 2.
Next up in its headline-grabbing features is the beefed-up camera which Google claims provides more in-depth, low-light, and close-up details. The cameras are now assisted by artificial intelligence software which can readily combine multiple shots when taken in succession. The cameras are also able to detect, and therefore warn its users, if they have blinked or whether a shot has been taken poorly. Furthermore, the new Pixel smartphones now come with a second front lens which should come in handy for users who occasionally take "wefies" with their friends.
The third-generation Pixels are also noted for their interesting offerings on battery capacity. The Pixel 3 XL now comes with a 3,430mAh battery, which is deemed to be slightly inferior to the 2017 edition. Meanwhile, the Pixel 3 now equips a 2,915mAh battery, which is an improvement compared to the Pixel 2. Both the Pixel 3 phones are also IP68-rated.
The Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 3 XL will become available in the US starting on October 19. The smaller Pixel carries a price tag of USD 800 (around PHP 43,300) while the notch-bearing, larger variant is priced at USD 900 (around PHP 48,700). They come with three color options: Clearly White, Just Black, and Not Pink.
