Thursday is proving to be a great day for smartphone fans! Samsung announced the official launch date and location for Galaxy Note 9 and the famous leakster known as Evan Blass on Twitter has uploaded a press render of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL. The aforementioned smartphones will represent the best that Google has to offer in 2018 and they are considered as “pure” Android devices.
Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL Leak
The first thing we need to mention about this leak is that the two smartphones look amazing! The interesting thing about the leak is that Pixel 3 XL’s top-notch display looks just like iPhone X, while the smaller Pixel 3 doesn’t. This is a nice touch from a design point of view and it will surely motivate customers to purchase the more expensive Pixel 3 XL.
Rear-Mounted Fingerprint Scanner
Another feature that stands out in this new leak is the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. This is a letdown because everyone expected Google to implement an innovative in-display fingerprint sensor, but it looks like Google wasn’t able to pull this off. It looks like we might have to wait another year before this feature arrives on Google’s flagship smartphones.
Since we are talking about Pixel 3, we are going to take a look at what type of specs it has to offer and see if it’s worthy of being called a flagship smartphone. Pixel 3 ships with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display that features a high pixel resolution of 1080 x 2160. Moreover, the display is coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for improved resistance.
Pixel 3 will pass any benchmark tests with flying colors since Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 CPU powers it. The CPU features eight cores and it clocks at 2.8GHz. Not just that, but the CPU is also bundled with an Adreno 630 GPU and 6GB of RAM.
