Google Pixel 3 and 3XL have bigger screens, dual front cameras and wireless charging.


Despite sharing some basic specs with their predecessors (Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL), the new Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL come with new and prominent features such as bigger 5.5-inch and 6.3-inch displays, wireless charging, dual-lens front-facing cameras, Android 9 Pie and Snapdragon 845 processor.  Also, while the Pixel 3 has a normal top bezel, the bigger Pixel 3XL comes with a notched display.

Meanwhile, some of the basic specs of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL that still remain unchanged in the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL are 4GB RAM, 64GB/128GB internal storage, rear-facing fingerprint reader and the single lens 12.2-megapixel back camera.


The New Google Pixel Designs
Although, the new phones weigh a little more than their predecessors, but in spite of their larger display sizes, the Pixel 3 and 3XL share similar form factors (body dimensions) with the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2X.

This enables the new Google Pixels to have higher screen to body ratio than their predecessors, because while Pixel 2 and 2XL have screen-to-body ratio of 68% and 76% respectively, on the other hand, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL have screen-to-body ratio of 77% and 82% respectively.

As a result of this, the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL have slimmer sides bezel and smaller chins. Not only that, instead of almost pointed edges of the previous phones, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL come with round edges which give them sleeker and more appealing look.

At the front of the phone are dual lens front facing cameras, and next to the dual camera is the usual dual stereo speakers, which come with increased volume and improved audio quality this time. Another noticeable feature of the new phones is the power button, which now comes in Orange colour.

Moving to the back, the new Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3XL come with all glass back, which enables them to support wireless charging. Though the glass rear also has a two-tone finish, like that of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL, but instead of mixture of metal and glass that's found on the back of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL, the all-glass two-tone back of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL is made up of glossy and matte finish. Google Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3XL are also well built phones and both of them are IPX8 certified for water resistance.
USB-C earbuds and Phone Price
Furthermore, both phones feature USB-Type C port, so, there is still no 3.5mm audio jack, but the new phones come with Pixel USB-C earbuds (USB-C headphones), and for those that'll like to use their 3.5mm headphones with the new phones, Google still includes USB-C to 3.5mm Adapter in the box.

Google Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3XL come in 3 colours of Clearly white, Just black and Not pink (which means very light pink).  And $799 is the price of Pixel 3 that has 64GB storage, while $899 is the price of the one with 128GB. One the other hand, the price of Pixel 3XL for 64GB and 128GB is $899 and $999 respectively.

Bigger and Better Displays
Apart from their bigger sizes, the new phones' displays also feature higher screen resolutions than those of their predecessors. Therefore, the 5.5-inch Pixel 3 display has a  screen resolution of 2160 by 1080 pixels (FHD+) and 18:9 aspect ratio, while the Pixel 3XL 6.3-inch display features a screen resolution of 2960 by 1440 pixels (QHD+) and an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.

In last year's models, there were reports that unlike Pixel 2, that came with OLED display, Pixel 2XL that's fitted with P-OLED (Plastic-OLED) panel suffers from washed out colour, blue tints and burn in, of which, Google responded by fixing some of the issues with software updates. Perhaps, to prevent such occurrence, Google uses OLED Panel for both the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 display.
Snapdragon 845 with the Same RAM and ROM
Processing And Storage: When it comes to their processing power, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (2.5GHz + 1.6GHz) Octa-Core processor with Adreno 630 GPU (graphic processing unit). Both phones are also running on the latest Google android O.S i.e.  Android 9 Pie, the successor to the Android 8 Oreo.
Both the memory and internal storage capacity of Pixel 3 and 3XL are still the same as those of their predecessors, that is, each of the new phones comes with 4GB of RAM and the internal storage option of either 64GB or 128GB.

Although, Google offers unlimited cloud storage for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL, but physically, both phones are still limited to the fixed internal storage capacity, because, like the previous Google Pixels, the phones' internal storage cannot be expanded via microSD card.


Dual front-cameras with improved features
The back camera set up of the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3XL is the same as that of Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2XL, because both new phones also come with a single lens 12.2-megapixel, 1.4 um, rear camera.
Meanwhile, each of the new phones comes with dual 8-megapixel front-facing cameras, of which the new secondary or "wide" lens is meant for shots like group Selfie i.e. to capture more field of view (to capture more friends or people), meanwhile the standard lens is still meant for regular Selfie.

Therefore, Group Selfie Cam is the new feature, which, through the use of slider, enables you to switch between the two modes i.e. between the regular Selfie and group Selfie, when the need arises.
Super Res Zoom: In the absence of the secondary or telephoto lens (Optical Zoom lens), Super Res Zoom makes sure you get sharp and clear details when using digital zoom of the new phones cameras.

Night Sight: This is for low-light photos; without using flash, Night Sight ensures that the camera delivers bright and clear image from the pictures taken at nights or in low-light conditions.

Improved Portrait mode: Normal portrait mode blur the background of a photo (Bokeh) in order to make the subject of the photo "pop". But the improved portrait mode of the  Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL allows you to adjust the depth of field or background blur of your photo as you like. It can also let you blur the subject of the photo and keep the background in focus instead. The feature is similar to that of the new iPhones.

Other camera features of the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3XL are improved HDR+, Top Shot, Photobooth mode, playground mode, etc. Meanwhile, the Pixel Visual Core chip (designed to ensure optimum performance of the camera) is also back in the new Pixels

Wireless charging, fingerprint reader and battery
Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL are the first set of Google Pixels to support wireless charging, and this is made possible by their all-glass back. And to that end, Google debuts its own wireless charging dock called Pixel Stand. Pixel Stand is optional and you can get it for $79, and also it can be used for other devices that support Qi wireless charging.
Like in the previous Google Pixels and for quick unlocking, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL also come with a rear mounted fingerprint reader.

Furthermore, Pixel 3 comes with a battery capacity of 2915 mAh, while the one of Pixel 3XL is 3430 mAh. This shows that the Pixel 3 has more battery cells than its predecessor (Pixel 2), but despite having a bigger screen size and more processing power, Google Pixel 3XL has slightly less battery capacity than the Google Pixel 2XL.
