Google confirms that its this year’s hardware event will be held on October 9 in New York City. The company has sent out invites for the upcoming event and it states ‘I <3 NYC’ and number ‘3’ indicates that the Pixel 3 series will be unveiled at the event. The company is also expected to unveil some other products as well just like last year.
Pixel 3 Specifications
There have been plenty of leaks about the upcoming Pixel 3 series that give us a fair idea of what Google will bring with its flagships this time around. According to leaks, the Pixel 2 will have a 5.5-inch FHD+ (2160 x 1080) 18:9 aspect ratio display without a notch. It will sport a glass and metal back body with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and front mounted speakers.
The Pixel 3 will be powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC with 4GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB internal storage. In terms of optics, Google could be relying on a single rear camera again but there could be a dual front camera setup with two 8.1MP sensors with f/1.8 and f/2.2 aperture respectively. This will pack a 2,915mAh battery.
Pixel 3 XL Specifications
The bigger Pixel 3 XL is expected to pack a 6.7-inch FHD+ (1440 x 2960) display with a 19:9 aspect ratio which means a notch on top. While most of the other specifications are expected to be similar to the Pixel 3. The Pixel 3 XL could also get a high-end 6GB RAM and 128GB storage model as well.
For imaging, the Pixel 3 XL could also feature a single 12.2 MP rear camera. Also, just like the Pixel 3, it would also have a dual front camera setup for selfies. It will also have a slightly bigger 3430mAh battery with wireless charging support.
Both the phones are expected to come bundled with USB Type-C headphones that are expected to be the wired Pixel Buds. On the software front, both the Google smartphones will be running the latest Android 9 Pie out of the box.
