Google is all set to unveil the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones next week on October 9. The event is set to take place in New York, and ahead of the official unveiling, we have come across a lot of leaks, renders and rumors that have given us a fair idea on what to expect. There are some confusing bits though, some rumors hint at full screen display without a notch, whereas leaked renders show a deep notch.
Now, leaked renders from AndroidHeadlines offer a closer look at the different color options. We have already come across renders in Black and White colors, and the new leak treats us with yet another color option – Sand (which looks more like pale pink). Will these be the final three colors in which the smartphones will be launched remains to be seen.
Specifications wise, both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, with at least 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage. There could be another variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage too. The smartphones will come with a single rear camera, but not enough details about the resolution, sensor and aperture size are available at the moment.
Up front, renders show dual camera modules, but yet again, the resolution and functioning isn’t known, and we will have to wait until Google officially announces the smartphones. Otherwise, the Pixel 3 is expected to come with a screen resolution of 1080×2160 pixels and battery capacity of 3,000mAh, whereas the Pixel 3 XL is expected to come with a 1440x2960pixels screen and slightly larger battery of 3,430mAh.
With USB Type-C port, 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fiac connectivity options, both smartphones will run Android 9 Pie OS. Google has also teased the Active Edge functionality for invoking the Google Assistant, which has been present from the first Pixel smartphone.
