Exclusive Pixel 3 camera features leak ahead of Google's media event

Exclusive Pixel 3 camera features leak ahead of Google's media event

Richard Lai, an Engadget editor, obtained the device from a Hong Kong retailer who is, apparently, selling Google Pixel 3 XL before its official release.

However, it looks like Google had one trick up their sleeve as we move closer to the event. Hence we expect the company to launch the Pixel 3 series smartphones and tablets today but add a few more surprises as well. We have seen both the smartphones in leaked renders and we have also come across their specifications. However, if Google really did place those leaks as a decoy then this would be one of the best marketing stunts pulled by a company in recent years. Part of the reason for the leaks was the massive hype behind the phone, and that tells us that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have been two of the most awaited phones this year.

What will differentiate them will be the display of 5.5 inches on the Pixel 3 and 6.5 inches on Pixel 3 XL.

Pixel 3 is likely to use an octa-core Qualcomm chipset, an Ardreno 630 GPU, and have 4GB of RAM. Thankfully, come Tuesday, the Pixel 3 leaks will stop, as the phones will become official.

Rumours are rife that a Pixel 3 and larger Pixel 3 XL are inbound. Also, we might see a new version of the their Chromecast digital media player and even a Chrome OS tablet. For instance, we don't know what's under the hood processor, storage or component-wise. However, that doesn't mean you can't already buy the Pixel 3 in stores.

Despite US sanctions, India will buy oil from Iran in November
A second round, forthcoming on November 4, will be targeting Iran's oil sales and its Central Bank. Sanctions against Iran will block payment routes for India through the U.S. dollar.

Last year, Google rolled out the Pixel 2, Google Home Mini, Google Clips, Pixel Buds and several other gadgets, so it seems likely that there will be a substantial lineup this time around. Shocker. It has a simple design, blue color, single camera on its rear and another up front, fingerprint reader on top, dual front-facing speakers, USB-C port or two, and will work with a new blue Pixelbook Pen.

It's a given Google will make its new flagship phones official at an event on October 9.

What are your thoughts regarding the Pixel Slate?

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are expected to feature a similar design to the Pixel 2- dual-tone, half-glass, half-matte back with rounded corners everywhere-only with some subtle differences. Also shown is the Slate's stylus and detachable keyboard, the latter connecting with a pogo connector. The device should run regular Android apps, and it may feature an ARM-based mobile processor or an ultra-low power CPU from Intel. The Chrome OS running tablet could go on sale immediately or within the next few days in the US.
