See the Google Pixel 3 in two new colors

In this day and age, as smartphone design becomes more and more uniform, color is one of the easier ways to make a device to stand out. We've seen some pretty interesting paint jobs in the last year, chief among which Huawei's crazy gradient P20 Pro design, and even Apple broke the mold a bit this month with the iPhone Xr and its vibrant blue, orange, red, and yellow color variations.

And while we're seeing more lively (even garish) offerings pop up on the market, Google once again seems set on releasing new smartphones in a very subdued, dual-tone palette. Not that this is a bad thing, quite the contrary, actually. We've been hearing rumors about Black and White versions of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, but recently, two other possible colors have been uncovered – Mint and Pink (tentatively named).

The Mint version was spotted in an official Google teaser about the upcoming Pixel phones, while information about the Pink model was dug out from the source code of Google's official "Coming Soon" page. Talk about dedication.

We currently have no confirmation about the official names of these color schemes, but following Google's naming patterns from the past two generations of Pixel phones, it's safe to assume that they won't just be called "Mint" and "Pink".

Using the color information from the Google-hosted teaser images, we envisioned what the Mint and Pink versions of the Google Pixel 3 could look like:

Vomit-inducing colors. Is Google's design team hiring?

They should meet Huawei for proper color lessons

Who gives a crap about the color of your phone. Especially when over 90% of the people buy cases to proctect your smartphone to begin with. All smartphones are made fragile these days, and with most smartphones being all glass these days. Who gives a crap what color your smartphone really is. Let's get real.

I do. I never use a case. I'd rather my phone not look like elf vomit.

Clear cases that you can see through are this new thing floating around. Maybe you've heard of it.

I totally agree, as long as the front is black. If anything I would be excited for more color options from case manufacturers. Speck I think only offers 2 colors and not their full line, and uag only offers one type of case and 1 color I believe.

Huawei honestly has the most gorgeous device colors. It's good to see other people noticing.

While the other companies trying make their phone looks better with new colors like shiny gold, gradient color, and patterns. This phone maker trying really hard to make their phone as ugly as possible, as if it's front panel isn't ugly enough.

They seriously need to hire some new people for the phone design team. One step forward and two steps back, twice in a row now. If I'm paying top dollar for a phone, I expect it to look as nice as it performs.

I assume you think you can design better, yes?

24. aegislash

Actually no, what I'm saying is other OEMs who charge top-dollar manage to design devices that are both sleek and stylish, as well as functional. How was that hard to grasp from my comment?

How hard was it to grasp my question? I'll ask again in case you didn't get it the first time - do you think you can design something better?

No mention of the word "notch" in the comments, I'm getting worried guys...

The subject said Pixel 3, so at least I assumed the leaked colors would apply to the regular Pixel 3 only, which is almost comfirmed to be notch free

Looking back at the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, the regular Pixel 3 is a more likely candidate for the new colors. Though who knows, maybe the XL model will also get another color option this year, aside from black and white.

I wouldn't mind the mint colored. It reminds me of the Nexus 5X. It looked fairly nice tbh.

What’s with Googles new Easter pastel color fetish? It’s on the dialer, contacts, and messages apps. Not a fan.

They are doing this on purpose as an excuse to get out of the hardware game....tell me I'm not wrong....they cannot be serious

No cause they did buy their hardware company from HTC to have more control over it. Google Pixel hardware team reminds me of that free thinking, environmental frendly spreading peace hippy family member that everyone haves. lol
