At this point, there’s absolutely nothing that we don’t already know about the upcoming Google Pixel 3 XL. From hands-on photos to contents of the retail box, just about everything about Google’s next smartphone has leaked online, countless times. However, there hadn’t been much chatter about the smaller Pixel 3, until now.
A fresh batch of real-life Google Pixel 3 photos has popped up online, confirming the soon-to-be-launched smartphone’s design. According to the images, shared by 9to5Google, the back of the Pixel 3 looks pretty much identical to the larger Pixel 3 XL, complete with a matte-finish rear panel and a much-smaller glass inset up top. The right side of the smartphone features the volume rocker and the power button.
However, it’s the front panel of the smartphone that’s interesting. Why? Because it confirms that the small Pixel 3 will have a ‘regular’ display, unlike the notched panel that the Pixel 3 XL will come with. In fact, the 18:9 aspect ratio and rounded corners make the front of the Pixel 3 resemble the existing Pixel 2 XL.

In addition to the design, most of the specs of the Google Pixel 3 have also been confirmed, thanks to an app (developed bysomeone at 9to5Google) that reveals hardware specifications of smartphones. According to the screenshot of the app, Google Pixel 3 will come with a 2,915mAh battery. It’ll also have a larger (compared to Pixel 2) 5.5-inch display, but the extra tall aspect ratio will ensure the smartphone’s fairly easy to use with one hand. The smartphone will most certainly be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM, and run stock Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box.
