Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL price, release date and carrier availability
by Daniel Petrov / Oct 09, 2018, 11:09 AM
One would think that the 6.3" display means that the 3 XL is the largest Pixel ever, but with a proud notch at the front, it is actually the size of the 2 XL, and even a tad more compact thanks to the narrower side bezels. If you want something more manageable in the hand, though, you'd have to splurge for the smaller, Pixel 3 sibling. How much? Well, here's the scoop.
Big Red will be carrying the new Pixels, of course, just as previous years, when it was their exclusive carrier. The rumor that it will charge $799 for the smaller Pixel 3 actually held water in the end. That's a lot of change for the "small" phone, but if you want one of the best cameras on Android and a pure stock interface with the fastest security updates, this is what you'd have to dole out.
Google's device store will have the new Pixel 3 and 3 XL for prices the same as Verizon's, starting from $799 for the 64GB Pixel 3, and hitting $999 for the 128GB Pixel 3 XL. Google also throws in 3 months of YouTube Premium for free, which is a nice touch.
Pixel 3 and 3 XL country availability
The Pixel 3 and 3 XL will be available in much more countries at launch than their Pixel 2 predecessors were. Expect them officially in the Google Stores of Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, India, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, United Kingdom, and, of course, United States (except Puerto Rico).

I was planning on getting the smaller Pixel but I can't do it with that price point.

Ugliest phone of the year by far and certainly wouldn't consider the xl for myself because of the poor design however, Google continues to show that they are light years ahead of anyone AI and machine learning. It's not even a close race at this point. Well done Google. Improve your design and you may convince me one day.

The only thing I loved was the camera comparison. People who will say Google should not be comparing need to understand that when you beat the most popular device’s camera by a huge margin, you need to flaunt it. Apart from the camera, the presentation was horrible. The products felt average (stress on felt). So much talk about a new photo album. Sheesh.

I agree. The phone doesn't really have anything else going for it except the camera. Specs are a bit underwhelming, as they still use 4GB of storage on both the Pixel 3 and 3 XL. Still no headphone jack, and the notch seems real thick, not to mention the large chin at the bottom which really defeats the purpose of having a notch I guess.
