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:
