Exactly 11 months on from the unveiling of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the countdown clock for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL has undeniably begun. And following an incredible number of leaks that have revealed essentially every last detail about the duo, Google’s next two smartphones have now been certified in Taiwan.
Overall, the listings in question don’t reveal anything major related to the two smartphones – the certifications only confirm the official names and the fact that multiple 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE bands will be supported. However, it has previously been revealed that the devices will both be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845. This will then be coupled with 4GB of RAM and the choice of either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. Additionally, on the software side of things, Android 9 Pie will unsurprisingly come pre-installed straight out of the box.
Moving over to the external side of things, the smaller Pixel 3 will ship with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display that utilizes an 18:9 aspect ratio. When it comes to the larger Pixel 3 XL, though, a huge 6.7-inch AMOLED display will be included. Also, unlike the regular model, the Pixel 3 XL’s display will also include a notch that is home to selfie camera setup. Speaking of which, both Pixel 3 smartphones will utilize two 8-megapixel sensors up front and a single 12.2-megapixel camera on the rear.
According to a recent report, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will both make their debut on October 8 at Google’s annual hardware event. Here, the internet giant is also expected to unveil a host of other products too. But, unfortunately, the Pixel Watch will not be making an appearance.
