Rumours that all leaks are untrue and that Google will surprise us today – haven’t proved to be true. The new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones are exactly what we knew from unofficial information.

The new Pixels differ slightly in appearance. Pixel 3 has a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080x2160 pixels, while Pixel 3 XL has a 6.3-inch display with a resolution of 1440x2960 pixels. Both models have displays in OLED technology. Both matrices offer HDR support and sRGB colour boost mode by 10%. There is also an always-on-display function and protection from Gorilla Glass 5.

The heart of the new models is the Snapdragon 845 processor, but it’s clocked down to 2.5 in stronger and 1.6 GHz in energy-saving cores. Google is disappointing with memory. The RAM is only 4 GB, and the internal memory - 64 or 128 GB, but without the possibility of expanding with the card. The new models have watertight housings (IP68), and in the range of colours appeared - as predicted - pink. Colours as usual have funny names: Not Pink, Just Black and Clearly White. Data protection is provided by fingerprint readers.

Pixel 3 has a battery with a capacity of 2915 mAh, and the XL variant - 3430 mAh. The set includes a 18W power supply that can provide 7-hour phone operation after a quarter of an hour. Phones also support wireless charging, and the company's optional power supply - the Pixel Stand can charge wirelessly with 10W. Additionally, Stand changes Pixels into the Google Home terminal.

Interestingly, the back camera has not been changed from the previous generation. It has been assumed that what is good does not require improvement. In this year's Pixels we have a 12.2-megapixel single camera with f/1.8 lens, optical stabilization and 1.4 micrometer pixels. The software shows HDR+ and artificial intelligence. It can, for example, work in the Top Shot mode combining several similar frames into one perfect photo. This will facilitate, for example, group portraits, ensuring that every person in the photo will be smiling, nicely posed and without eyes closed. AI also deals with improving the digital zoom, which is called Super Res Zoom - the pictures will have more details. When it comes to videofilm, it can be done at a maximum resolution of 4K at a rate of 30 fps, with additional digital image stabilization. In the future, by upgrading, an even improved night photography mode will appear.

The front cameras are a bit more interesting - double. They have 8-megapixel matrices, but different lenses. One has a field of view of 87 degrees and has an aperture of f/1.8, while the other has 97 degrees but has an aperture of f/2.2. Cameras supports digital image stabilization. In both Pixels you will find stereo speakers on the front, and in sets of new Pixel Buds headphones with USB-C plugs and integration with Google Assistant. There will also be an adapter for an ordinary minijack.

Pixels 3 will be available from the beginning of November. Depending on the selected memory (64 or 128 GB) for Pixel 3 you have to pay 860/960 euro, and for 3 XL 960 or 1060 euro.
