Google Pixel 3: Smaller, but packs just as much punch

While Google Pixel 3 XL has a notch on its 6.3-inch display, the smaller Google Pixel 3 does not. Interesting decisions there by Google. One device for notch lovers and the other for haters. That is not a bad way to appease both sides of the divide.

The Pixel 3’s display is 5.5 inches. Is Google following Samsung’s lead with sizes of the screens of Galaxy S9 and S9+ here? And finally, Google goes with FullView Display: both Pixel 3 and 3 XL have 18:9 aspect ratio screens.

Both Pixels are also equipped with 2018’s greatest, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. Google has finally said goodbye to the  3.5mm headphone jack.

If you remember, recently, Google acquired HTC’s Pixel design team, and it is that team that is now responsible for Pixel smartphones development. As such, you can expect top notch design and quality.

The Pixel 3 will come with Android Pie, with the promise of two years of operating system updates, as well as security updates for the life of the device.
