Photos of Regular Google Pixel 3 (Non-XL) Leaked
It’s a tradition that Google always launches two smartphones per year: the regular Pixel and a larger sibling, the Pixel XL. There have been plenty of leaks about this year’s Google Pixel 3 XL already and a number of devices have even been spotted in the wild – weeks before Google’s official announcement.
The non-XL version of the Pixel 3 flagship smartphone hasn’t received much attention, at least until now. A prototype device has been spotted in the wild and there are plenty of pictures around to admire the upcoming and much-anticipated smartphone. The back of the device is similar to that of the Pixel 3XL, but it looks like a completely different phone when viewed at the front.
Whereas the Pixel 3 XL features quite a thick notch, the regular Pixel 3 features a much more sleek design with thin bezels (like Samsung’s Galaxy S series and the Pixel 2 XL) instead of a notch for the front camera and a number of sensors. The XL’s design has been the source of a lot of criticism online. The photos of the regular Pixel 3 in question were leaked on Reddit and corresponds with earlier reports and rumors.
Aside from the exterior, the Redditor also posted a number of screenshots showing the phone’s information. The 8-megapixel snapper at the back has an aperture of f/1.8 and the battery size is 3000 mAh. As expected, Google has chosen for a Full HD+ screen with a diagonal of 5.8 inches. The Snapdragon 845 will be powering Google’s latest flagship device.
According to the latest reports, Google will officially unveil both the Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 3 XL at an event on October 9th, with a release for the phones shortly after. It’s still unknown whether or not the new Pixel phones will be made available in all territories, as the second-generation Pixel handsets weren’t available in some Western territories.
