Google Pixel 3: Will It Be Better Than Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and OnePlus 6T?
As the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has already hit the market, that leaves the Google Pixel 3 and the OnePlus 6T as the remaining unreleased highly-anticipated Android devices of the year. As the former smartphone received a positive reception from tech buyers and critics, the question now is, will the Pixel 3 and the 6T be able to outshine the Note 9?
Google Pixel 3 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 9 vs OnePlus 6T
All that we know about the Google Pixel 3 and the OnePlus 6T right now is pure speculation. If reports are to be believed, however, it looks like the new Pixel device will serve as a formidable challenger to both the smartphones from Samsung and OnePlus. Below, we will be comparing the three phones based on their potential strong suits and advantages:
Google Pixel 3
If users were already impressed by the previous Pixel phones, it is said that they will like the Pixel 3 even more. It is heavily rumored to present radical changes to the design and functionality of the product line, according to Express.
For one, the upcoming Pixel device will enable users to pick out wallpaper for the always-on display. Always-on displays can be used to view the time, date and notifications without having to turn on the smartphone. This particular feature has become increasingly popular after it was introduced by Samsung a few years ago.
It also seems that Google will be phasing out headphone jacks all together for the new Pixel. This was after a leak suggested that the Pixel Buds that will come with the phone will have a USB-C connector instead.
However, it also seems that battery life will be an issue, according to Forbes. A recent leak suggests that the battery capacity of the Google Pixel XL tops off at 3,430mAh. This is lower than the prior models.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9
While the new Samsung Galaxy Note 9 bears a striking resemblance to the previous model in the line, it does improve a lot on the display. It has a 6.3-inch OLED screen, according to BGR. It has been praised for being one of the best smartphone display screens right now in the market, even better than the iPhone X.
The OnePlus device is reported to come out with a bang, according to Tech Advisor. Reports right now indicate waterproof features, a notch-free 19:9 display and an in-display fingerprint sensor. A Snapdragon 845 processor is also in store for buyers.
Google is becoming as secretive as usual with regards to the release date of the Pixel phone. There are, however, credible reports that say it will be officially unveiled in a big Google event on Thursday, October 4.
Meanwhile, the 6T will most likely be in stores by the middle of November. This is based on release date patterns of previous devices in the product line.
