Google’s most interesting new Pixel 3 feature is also its most mysterious

Google’s most interesting new Pixel 3 feature is also its most mysterious

Just like the previous generation, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL come with deep Google Assistant integration.

In our hands-on preview of the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones, we covered numerous new features Google announced on stage during its big press event.

The camera of Pixel will be 12.2 MP dual Pixel single rear camera with autofocus with optical+electronic image stabilization. The Pixel 3 would be a 2,915mAh battery, while the Pixel 3 XL gets a 3,430mAh battery.

According to the images leaked to the network until today, Chrome OS should receive a new user interface, with a central dock and a "Back" button. For example, there's a feature called Night Sight, which allows for much clearer pictures to be captured in low-lighting. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are improvements over their predecessors in literally every way. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are available for pre-order at $799 as of now.


The next feature is called Photobooth, which also uses Google Clips technology to take photos in selfie mode.

Google Pixel phones have been praised all over due to their camera prowess and their use of computational photography (their epic HDR+).

In that, it's similar to Microsoft's Surface Pro 6, which launched last week. However, the Google Pixel Slate is a fairly new addition to the Pixel lineup.

The base-model Pixel 2 now ships with a price tag of £629 and free delivery if bought on the Google Store. That's what the tech giant will be doing with its Google Home Hub which is the company's answer to Amazon's Echo Show. Mashable's Raymond Wong and Pete Pachal will be on site for the news, but it's pretty safe to say we know what's coming.


Facebook made a nod in the same privacy-minded direction by including a clip-on camera lens cover with its new Facebook Portal device. As we've learned over the past few weeks, what Google cannot do is keep a secret. The new Pixel 3 display features HDR capabilities along with a screen-to-body ratio of 77.2%.

The latest Pixel phones are likely to attract the most attention, even though the first two generations have so far barely made a dent in the market. The Pixel 2 featured the last-gen Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with Adreno 540 GPU. The Pixel 3 XL price in Canada, on the other hand, is set at CAD $1,129 (roughly Rs. 64,300) for the 64GB variant, whereas the 128GB Pixel 3 XL has been listed at CAD $1,259 (roughly Rs. 71,700). The Google Home Hub will support voice assistant, and it will also come with built-in support for YouTube and other Google apps.

The Pixel 2 featured a 5.0-inch 16:9 AMOLED display with a pixel density of 441 ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
