Leading up to it we ve across plenty of rumors and leaks that have given us a fair idea on what to expect from the two flagship devices.

Yes, this time the Pixel 3 smartphones will also be available for purchase in Japan. Being a new market for the company, Google has not only created a page for the devices in the country, but has also posted a short video to build hyper around it. While the video doesn t quite showcase the smartphone, it does highlight and confirm the Active Edge feature on the smartphone. It revolves around the idea of squeezing the sides of the smartphone in order to get quick access to Google Assistant.

9to5Google, who spotted the video, also believes the video to briefly suggest color options of the new smartphones, which are said to be Black, Blue, Green, Pink, and White. But this is just a speculation as off now.

But that said, we can confirm that Active Edge feature will definitely be making a return this year with the Google Pixel 3 smartphones. While it is primarily used to summon Google Assistant, it is unclear if Google plans on adding more functionality to it. We will certainly find that out soon enough.

Besides that, the new Pixel smartphones are expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 6GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage. They are also touted to come with a single rear camera and dual front cameras this time around. We re also expecting them to be running Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box.
