Google Pixel 3 & Pixel 3 XL show up again; this time in all three official colors
Starting off with the lesser-known variant, it turns out that Sand is indeed Google’s official name for the pink-colored Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. As can be seen, the company has avoided bright tones all around and has instead opted for a much more neutral tone. However, in the hope of injecting some artistic flair, the company has included an accented power key that adopts a deeper pink color.
Moving over to the white model, this coincides perfectly with all previous leaks by making use of the same accented power button and dual-tone body. Due to the bright white coloring, though, the different finishes are hard to distinguish. At least in the renders, anyway. Fortunately, this problem isn’t present on the black model. This is due to the fact that the frosted glass section adopts a greyish tone, while the glossy portion boasts a much darker tone.
In regards to the internal characteristics, both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are expected to include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 alongside 4GB of RAM and at least 64GB of internal storage. This will then be coupled with a single 12-megapixel camera on the rear and two sensors up front. Unsurprisingly, as these devices are Google-branded, they will ship with stock Android 9 Pie straight out of the box. When it comes to the few differences, the smaller Pixel 3 will include a 5.4-inch 18:9 display, while the larger model will boost this to 6.7-inches and introduce a large notch. Battery-wise, a 3,000mAh pack will be present in the former, while the latter should gain access to 3,430mAh.
As repeated countless times, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are set to go official next Tuesday, October 9. Here, Google is also expected to announce a number of other items including a third-generation Chromecast and the Google Home Hub.
