Leaked Google Pixel 3 marketing images and video confirm software features


Today may be Google’s 20th birthday but even that isn’t enough to stop the overwhelming number of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL leaks. And the latest scoop, which comes courtesy of MySmartPrice, is actually a pretty big one as it reveals a bunch of marketing images and even a video that have been designed to showcase the device features.

As expected, the images confirm that the new devices will run stock Android 9 Pie straight out of the box and will use the new gesture-based interface by default. This will allow users to swipe up once on the home screen to upon up the recent apps page, and a second time to take a look at the app drawer. While on the topic of swiping, pulling down from the topic will display the notification panel and the quick settings toggles – this can also be accessed by swiping down on the rear fingerprint scanner.

As with last year’s Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the new Pixel 3 series will also feature the Active Edge feature that will allow users to open up the Google Assistant by squeezing the device. Alternatively, this can be used to trigger a different action of the user’s choice. Other hardware features include tap to wake and the ability to open the camera app by double pressing the power button. Speaking of the camera, a double twist of the wrist will switch between the front and rear sensors.

In general, it’s fair to say that the software experience lines up with expectations. After all, stock Android 9 Pie is already available on the Pixel 2 lineup anyway. On a separate note, though, the fact that Google has used the regular Pixel 3 in the material rather than the larger XL model does suggest that it is aware of its design mistakes.

Tha small one looks really beautiful and esthetic, if i would buy one pixel, it would certainly be pixel 3 regular model.

"used the regular Pixel 3 in the material rather than the larger XL model does suggest that it is aware of its design mistakes" I wouldnt say that, more like Google expects the non XL model to be the default model this time (whereas P2 XL was the star of the show) Non XL seems to have enough screen with the reduced bezels compared to Pixel 2, should be enough for most people

If Google doesn't give us an option to use software keys, I'll skip this. I hate the gestures on Pie, the double swipe up to get to the app drawer absolutely ruins the whole experience for me, and I've been a stock Android apologist for years...

You can turn off the gestures and enable the navigation bar. I hope that you will be able to add buttons and functions too.

The software looks pretty nice and polished to me. I might be on to the Pixel 3 depending on price and availability between this and the V40.
