A few hours ago, the search giant officially presented the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, some models that had leaked almost all the specifications a little over two months ago and today We have finally a confirmation.
As the year progresses, the number of new device presentations is decreasing, with Google Pixel being the last big ones to see the light.
The first generation of the Pixel did not officially reach many countries. With the second generation, Google expanded the number of countries and availability, but it did not serve to become a reference smartphone in the market.
Both the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have reduced frames to the maximum to take advantage of frames as a screen, and as expected have been forced to implement a notch at the top of the screen like almost all manufacturers of Android smartphones that have launched terminals this year, except Samsung.
Google Pixel 3 features a 5.5 inches screen with AMOLED technology, FullHD resolution and 18: 9 format, while Google Pixel 3 Xl, has also adopted the notch but with a larger screen and resolution reached 6, 3 inches OLED type, QHD resolution and 18.5: 9 format.
Again, and in the absence of available options in the market, the search giant is betting on the Snapdragon 845, a processor that has been on the market for almost 9 months and will be overtaken by the next generation of range phones in a few months.
Adopting the latest processor in the market could affect the price, but Google chose to offer a high-end phone but with an old processor with both Pixels phone.
Either Google changes the date of the presentation of its phones, or lowers the price since it will always face the same problem every year: go to slipstream in terms of processors in their terminals.
Pixel 3 camera
Google has managed to generate an algorithm that allows not only create the effect blur, or bokeh, with a single lens, showing that you do not need two cameras to do it, but also, this algorithm allows you to obtain images as true to reality, both in contrast as in brightness what allowed him last year to become the smartphone with the best camera on the market, a position that for now this year is in the hands of Huawei with the P20 Pro, with the iPhone XS and XS Max being the second in this classification.
The rear camera on both phones offers an aperture of f/1.8 and an optical stabilizer, capable of recording in 4k quality at 30 fps, a limitation that is not due to Google itself, but thanks to the Snapdragon processor of Qualcomm.
The A11 Bionic processor that was released last year hand in hand with the iPhone X was already able to record in 4k quality at 60 fps.
The battery has always been one of the main problems that all smartphone manufacturers face. Apple is the only manufacturer that is still betting on a somewhat lower capacity, relying on the greater energy efficiency offered by its processors every year, something that seems not to happen yet with Android phones.
The new Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL battery have 2,915 mAh and 3,430 mAh respectively, both being compatible with both fast and wireless charging. Being a phone manufactured by Google, Android developer, energy consumption should be the best of all the models that we can currently find in the Android ecosystem.
The third generation of Google Pixel has 4 GB of RAM with two storage options: 64 and 128 GB. Google seems to have wanted to be a little conservative not choosing to expand the amount of RAM of any of the phones.
Price and availability
The price of Google Pixel 3 is $799 for the 64 GB model, while the 128 GB model goes up to $899, which we will the price of Google Pixel 3 XL 64 GB version and will start shipping on November 1.
