Google Pixel 3 XL Gets REVIEWED (Days Before Its Official Launch)

09 October, 2018, 11:26 | Author: Rafael Roberts
  • Google releases a video to address all of the Pixel 3 leaks after a reporter managed to get their hands on one before the phone was even announced

The notch design is present, alongside Android 9.0 Pie's features, including Active Edge, which allows users to trigger actions by squeezing the sides of the Pixel 3 XL. Google hasn't yet discussed prices for its Pixel phones. We can speculate much more from the event which is scheduled to commence at 11 AM (8PM IST) onwards. Google Assistant Revamped with New Interface for Android Smartphones. Fast forward to today, Engadget has also managed to get hold of an "unreleased version" of the Pixel 3 XL in Hong Kong.

The biggest change under the hood would be in the charging department, as the new Pixels are expected to be Google's first devices to offer wireless charging solutions.

Google is tipped to launch a slew of new products. Even the HDR+ feature helps photos to have a good dynamic range, and some of the credits can be given to the dedicated Pixel Visual Core.

Google has teased a major Pixel 3 announcement. Reports starting surfacing a full month ago that Google was asking YouTubers for permission to use clips from Pixel 3 XL leak videos, so this strategy seems to have been in place for a full month.


As usual, we are expecting around five or so Google products at this event. Another device that has hit the shelves ahead of the formal launch is the third-generation Chromecast.

Instead of a metallic keyboard, this year there will be a keyboard cover like the one for the iPads. That's about the leaked pictures of the Pixel 3 XL. We will have to wait and see how many devices will be launched in the event this week. We have seen many conflicting leaks making us believe that Google might launch an entirely different device at their event. The 2-in-1 tablet will also come with a portable keyboard case, and it will work with Pixel Book pen. Other information leaked on the web indicates the box will come with a pair of Type-C earphones.

Talking about Pixelbook 2, the Chrome OS notebook is expected to retain the same form factor and ports as the first model.

As you can see below, the device is a tablet. However, as a part of upgrade, the upcoming phones would get new format screens, an improved operating system, enhanced camera modules and support for wireless charging. There are a lot of rumours that Chromecast might not have 4K resolution. Additionally, Google might also integrate AI for better photography experience.
