Description

The Google Pixel 3 has a similar design language as its predecessor, but with updated hardware. The phone comes with a 5.5-inch FHD+ panel protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, Qualcomm's top of the line Snapdragon 845 chip, 4 GB of RAM 64/128GB of storage (not expandable unfortunately) and a pair of front facing stereo speakers. In the camera department, Google decided to stick to its gun with a single 12.2-megapixel sensor with f/1.8 aperture. On the other hand, the selfie game stepped up to a dual 8-megapixel cameras with normal and wide angle lens.

  • Resolution:
    • 1080 x 2280 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 459 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

      • Aperture size:

        Aperture size - The aperture of a camera is the opening through which light travels before it reaches the camera sensor. The smaller the number is, the bigger this opening is, allowing for more light to pass.

        F1.8; Focal length:

        Focal length - The lower (shorter) the focal length number, the wider the shot will be. Conversely, longer focal length cameras produce narrower frames, which can be used for telephoto (zoomed-in) purposes.

        28 mm; Sensor size:

        Sensor size - A bigger camera sensor is able to capture more light, and thus produce better photos.

        1/2.55"; Pixel size:

        Pixel size - The size of an individual pixel on a camera's sensor. The bigger, the better.

  • FCC measured SAR:

    FCC measured SAR - Working closely with federal health and safety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
