Google Pixel 3 Active Edge technology teased in new video
One of the new markets where the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will launch this year is Japan. For this occasion, Google has released a new teaser video for the upcoming phones, showcasing the Active Edge technology inside. If you don't know what this is, it's basically the squeeze feature that lets you launch Google Assistant or mute the phone when it's ringing.
Being made for the Japanese market, the new Pixel 3 teaser is as quirky as you'd expect if you've seen any commercials from the land of the rising sun. It involves squeezing a wide range of things, none of which the actual phone, but that's to be expected. According to the eagle-eyed folks over at 9to5Google, there's also a brief moment in the video that may be a hint at the new color options for the Pixel 3, though that's just speculation. If you're quick enough to pause the video during a very brief scene of two people in striped shirts hugging, you'll notice that the stripes on their shirts, as well as those on the wall behind them, are all in colors rumored for the new Pixels.
The official unveiling of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is mere days away now. Google is expected to showcase and launch its new flagships on October 9th, possibly alongside a Pixel smartwatch. This will mark the first time Pixel devices are sold in Japan.
