Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL Design
According to Phone Arena, the Google Pixel 3 will feature an LG G6 look in its front. It will have an 18:9 aspect ratio and a 5.3-inch screen that has even top and bottom bezels. On the other hand, the Pixel 3 XL will possibly have a wider aspect ratio and might have a 6.2-inch diagonal. Based on some leaked prototype units, the Pixel 2 XL successor is also anticipated to have a “notch” at its top. But despite that, the handset will still have a “chin” that will house the speakers.
The back portion of the upcoming devices seemed to be pretty similar to their precursor. Both will still have a blending of metal and glass, a single camera that’s situated in the same spot as before, and of course a fingerprint scanner.
Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL Camera
As for the camera department, all rumors suggest that the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will have a dual camera. But then, the dual module is speculated to be on the smartphones’ front. Meanwhile, the camera on the devices’ back will still be single.
It is also worth mentioning that, many believed that the purpose of the dual front cameras for Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be utilized used for better “portrait mode” selfies. But, there were talks stating that these will be used for some sort of innovative face unlocking to preserve the trends. In addition, there’s also a likelihood that one camera will have a super-wide angle lens, while the other one might be “normal”.
Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL Other Rumors
Aside from running on Android 9, there’s also a possibility that the biggest search engine company will move to a swipeable navbar for software navigation. To make it clearer, the Pixel fans will get to experience a gesture-based UI, which was similar to iPhone X.
Aside from that, the Google Pixel 3 and its sibling Google Pixel 3 XL could obtain the Edge Sense boosts that are similar to what HTC U12+ has. Furthermore, it is worth noting that the HTC U12+’s Edge Sense isn’t just about squeezing the smartphone. With this technology, the handset can now sense which hand you’re using to hold it. Afterward, it will distinguish between three kinds of input: squeezing the device, tapping on its side using just a finger, or just holding it. Astoundingly, how the device reacts can be personalized to some extent.
With that being said, it is far-fetched that the biggest search engine company might take these ideas and improve the Active Edge of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL as well.
Currently, these are the speculated features of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. But since these are just based on rumors, these details are advised to be taken with skepticism. Also, as the anticipated October release of these smartphones, concrete details will surely surface, always keep an eye for further announcements.
