Are you bummed that the flagship will have just a single camera lens at the rear side? The only thing that users will be missing out from the Pixel 3 XL is the lack of optical zoom, but it is not going to be a deal breaker for a lot of customers.
For the last two years, starting with the original Pixel in 2016, Google Pixel has been the smartphone with the best camera.
With even affordable smartphones coming with dual-camera upgrades, it honestly comes a surprise to see that companies would still resort to using a single lens at the back of premium handsets. But the latest leak hints that this expectation may not be met.
If Google keeps up with past trends, its new camera on the upcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will once again leap to the front of the pack, and it'll do so one sensor at a time.
- Two phones. One will have a screen of around 5-inch whereas the other one will come with a display of around 6 inches. In India, the Pixel phones launch after a week or two of the global announcement.
- Both phones are likely to be water-resistant. Also bigger battery in the Pixel 3 XL for obvious reasons. Early rumors suggest that the screen diagonal will be 6.2 (up from 6.0 in the 2 XL thanks to the notch).
- In India, expect a price of around Rs 60,000 for the Pixel 3.
As many online shoppers must've already guessed, the Pixel 2 128GB for Rs 10,999 is bundled with a certain set of conditions.
Mobile industry insider Steve Hemmerstoffer, who runs the @OnLeaks on Twitter, has heard from his multiple sources the specs for the forthcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
