Google Pixel 3 XL

This autumn has already brought us a range of new and exciting smartphones, and the latest addition to that array comes from Google, in the shape of their Pixel 3 and 3 XL handsets.

Following the October 9th launch, this is what we know.

Expected launch

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL were both announced on October 9th, and they’re available for pre-order now before going on sale on November 1st.

Expected cost

The Pixel 3 XL starts at £869 for the 64GB version, and £969 for the 128 GB handset.

Design

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are both sleeker and smoother than last year’s handsets, with a subtle two-tone design and an almost entirely soft-touch glass outer shell that allows for wireless charging.

The Pixel 3 XL also has a 6.3 inch notched OLED screen, as opposed to the Pixel 3’s 5.5 inch screen without a notch. Both handsets come in black, white, and ‘Not Pink’.

Features

The 3 XL is fairly distinct from the Pixel 3 in the way of design, but when it comes to features and specs they’re very similar. Like the Pixel 3, the 3 XL will have Active Edge functionality, letting you bring up the Google Assistance with a squeeze of the phone’s sides. It will also have a fingerprint sensor on the rear, and dual speakers on the front.

The front of the phone will also get two 8MP cameras, one with a wide angle for group selfies, and a 12.2MP camera on the rear. The camera, like previous Pixels, is one of the highlights of the phone, coming with the Pixel Visual Core chip and a range of new camera features – including Top Shot, which picks out the best pictures you’ve taken from a set, and Night Sight, for better photos in the dark.

Technical specifications

When it comes to the tech specs, the XL will have an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, clocking at 2.8GHz. It will also feature a 3430mAh battery and 4GB of RAM, with storage capacity options of 64 and 128GB and a 3,430mAh battery. It will run on the Android 9 Pie OS.
