As most Android phone makers are moving to the trend of in-display fingerprint sensor, Google decides to stick to the rear mounted circular fingerprint sensor for the Pixel phones this year.

As per the Freedom Mobile listing, the 64GB onboard storage variant of the Pixel 3 is priced at 999 Canadian Dollars, while the same storage of Pixel 3 XL is priced at 1,129 CAD. The general timeframe follows a pattern; The company has started Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL on October 4, 2017, and the Google Pixel phones precisely one year earlier on October 4 2016. Practically every leak regarding the Pixel 3 has included wireless charging with prototypes shown getting juiced up on charging pads. Different rumors have indicated the presence of the Sand color, but it's hard to imagine without seeing pictures.

Engadget was able to get their hands on the new Pixel 3, though they says it's unofficial as a warning. We already know too much about the devices including the fact that there is not going to be a Google Pixel 3 Ultra.


The screen resolution is listed as 2960 x 1440, but it's unclear what type of OLED panel is being used here - maybe LG's P-OLED again like last time, but a seemingly improved version even when viewed under the sun.

There's no doubt Google will be using the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL to show off all that their Android P operating system can do. The accessory has round keys, a touchpad, and a dedicated key for Google Assistant. The search giant's upcoming Pixel 3 smartphones, likely to be called Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, have been speculated since months now. The review also reveals that flipping the phone upside down will turn on the Do Not Disturb (DND) mode. The device can also be themed in a dark theme (or light or based on the wallpaper) according to the screenshots.

Lai said he bought the device from an electronics shop in Hong Kong for $2,030.
