Release date

Google announced the Pixel 3 and 3 XL on October 9th, and while it’s almost certain to be released for November 1st it’s available for pre-order now.

Cost

In the UK, the Pixel 3 is priced at £739 for the 64GB version and £839 for the 128GB version.

Design

The Pixel 3 keeps its two-tone rear, though unlike the Pixel 2 the outer shell is almost entirely made of soft-touch glass – this makes it capable of wireless charging and also improves its LTE connection capabilities.

The handset itself feels and looks smoother, its edges rounded compared to last year’s model, and it comes in three colours – ‘Just Black’, ‘Clearly White’, and ‘Not Pink’. The OLED screen measures at 5.5 inches, half an inch bigger than the Pixel 2.

Features

In terms of features, the Pixel 3 comes without a headphone jack or a microSD slot, but does include a fingerprint sensor on the rear, and dual front-facing speakers – a feature becoming rarer with each generation of smart phones. We can also confirm the Active Edge technology, letting you bring up the Google Assistant by squeezing the phone’s sides.

The new Pixels also come with two 8MP selfie cameras, as well as the Pixel Visual Core – a chip that, alongside the 12.2MP rear camera and a feature called Top Shot, massively improves the phone’s photographic capabilities. The rear camera also has a Night Sight mode for taking pictures during darker hours, as well as image stabilisation and the ability to record 4k videos.

Technical specifications

The Pixel 3 has a pixel density of 443 ppi, lower than the 3 XL and other latest-generation smart phones. It comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, clocking at 2.8GHz, as well as 4GB of RAM and a 2,915mAh battery.
