The first Google Pixel was launched in 2016 by Alphabet Inc. as a way to announce its entry into the Android market. Since then, the company have been releasing new innovations and technologies to push its Pixel brand to the forefront of Android smartphones. Although the company has achieved a lot in terms of software, it’s still way behind in the hardware section.With the launch of Pixel 2 in 2017, Google showed the world that it knows what it takes to go head-to-head with top smartphone makers – Apple and Samsung. The imminent launch of Google Pixel 3 is sure to ascertain its dominance in the smartphone space.
A leak came out yesterday from Weibo (via Slashleaks) which revealed the alleged screen protectors of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. If this leak is actually real, then we have a hint on what the front panel of the 2018 Pixel instalments has to offer. From the images below, it can be seen that only the Pixel 3 XL will sport a notch, while the smaller Pixel 3 will feature the same front panel as last year Pixel phones with a slight increase in screen dimension. .The leak also gave an indication that the Google Pixel phones may feature a dual front camera or probably a biometric scanner as an upgrade over face unlock. The dual front-facing stereo speakers remain the same with a reduction in a bezel size.
It was recently announced that the 2018 Google Pixel instalments will also be coming with a second-gen version of Pixel Buds and Google’s first Pixel-branded smartwatch. The third-gen Pixel smartphones will feature a Snapdragon 845 SoC and run on Android P out of the box.
The Google Pixel 3 is likely to be released in early October as the Google Pixel 1 and 2 were also launched around the same time.
