With all the controversy surrounding the Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3's regular size could be the preferred phone for most users. With its huge screen size, the little brother is now a lighter pickup for those who like a bigger screen. And again, the internals are the same and give you the same experience as the 3 XL without the display score.
Leaks were pretty bad this year for the Pixel 3 lineup, with the last units reaching several exits months early that posted about every nook online. While some of the changes may be somewhat disappointing, the overall package is a worthy upgrade from last year's device and a much more competitive phone than the smaller 201

The body is the pixel 2 of last year very similar. Again, the pixel 3 will use an aluminum body with a hybrid coating. The back is bicoloured again, although the entire back is now made of glass. The lower half is textured so as not to appear or feel like glass, preventing fingerprints. Both front and back use Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection. There are three options for the colors: Clearly White, Just Black and Not Pink
- Frame: Hybrid Uncoated Aluminum Unibody
- Corning® Gorilla® Glass: 6
- Colors: Clear white, only black and not pink
Despite the increase in screen size (more on that later), both devices are only marginally larger than their predecessors. As far as dust and water protection is concerned, both devices support the highest degree of protection IP68. With a rating of 6, both devices are basically dustproof. As far as the eight are concerned, this means that the units can remain submerged in at least 1 m of water for up to 30 minutes.
All four carriers support the Pixel 3. Verizon is the exclusive US provider and the only provider where you can buy the device Pixel 3 in business. As for T-Mobile and Sprint, with the GSM Unlocked variant, all you have to do is on your SIM card. As with Sprint, with the BYOD program, you can enable the device for use on its network.

Both the Pixel 3 and the 3 XL got a huge screen size compared to their predecessor. The Pixel 3 received the biggest increase from a 5.0-inch screen to a 5.5-inch screen. The screen also took on the recent trend of the aspect ratio of 18: 9, resulting in a resolution of 2160 x 1080 compared to 1920 x 1080 last year. The result is a fairly high pixel density of 443 ppi.
The Pixel 3's display is certified by the UHD Alliance OLED and HDR. We believe Google once again uses LG's POLED panels, but this was not confirmed at the event. The pixel 3 also brings back the display and the playback of the pixel 2 again and again.
- Screen size: 5.5 inches
- Screen resolution: 2160 x 1080 pixels
- Pixel density: 443 ppi
- Screen Type: OLED
- Hint: no
- Screen-to-Body Ratio: 77.2%
- DCI-P3: 100%
- Aspect Ratio: 18: 9
- Contrast Ratio: 1.000.000: 1

Google has once again given the same fixtures to both devices. Both devices are limited to 4 GB of RAM. No wonder the SoC of choice is the newest and best from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 845. The 10 nm SoC has eight cores, four Cryo 385 Gold and four Cryo 385 Silver.
The first are custom Cortex Cortex Cores -A75 Spec and run at up to 2.8 GHz. The Silver Cores are derived from Cortex-A55, which makes them more energy efficient. These run at a frequency of 1.8 GHz and are used for less energy-intensive tasks. However, in order to save battery, Google decided to underclock both cores to 2.5 GHz and 1.6 GHz.
The paired GPU is the Adreno 630. This is a 710 MHz clocked quad-core GPU that produces 737 GFLOPS. In addition, the Pixel Visual Core developed by Google is used to control the AI processing of the cameras. And Google includes the Titan M security module to capture cryptographic keys.
- Memory: 4GB RAM
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 845
- Chip Size: 10nm
- CPU Frequency: 2.5GHz and 1.6 GHz
- CPU cores: 8
- GPU: Adreno 630
- GPU cores: 4
Battery  The battery was light by 2,700 mAh increased to 2,915 mAh. With the screen size increased by 0.5 inches and the energy efficiency of the Qualcomm SoC, this should lead to a comparable battery life as the predecessor model.
The fastest charging protocol of choice is USB Power Delivery. Google has been driving technology for years and has asked OEMs to move from Qualcomm Quick Charge. With USB PD, the Pixel 3 can not only be charged in 30 minutes to a full application day, but also remains much cooler. And for the first time, the Pixel 3 and 3 XL will finally support wireless charging. Google announced a new charging pad that features 10W wireless charging power and enabled a new menu that turns your Pixel 3 into a mini Google Home hub.
- Battery: Lithium Ion Battery
- Capacity: 2.915 mAh
- Charging: USB Power Supply (USB PD) and Qi Wireless Charge
Front Camera  While Google continues to ignore the multi-camera trend on the rear-view camera, the front-facing camera looks like another story. Google includes two front-facing cameras, both with 8 MP. The big addition is the second lens, which is a wide-angle shooter with an aperture of ƒ / 2.2 and a field of view of 97 °.
The main lens has a ƒ / 1.8 and has a standard field of view of 75 °. It also has autofocus and face detection.
- Resolution: 8 MP and 8 MP
- Aperture: ƒ / 1.8 (first lens) and ƒ / 2.2 (second lens)
- Zoom: digital

The Pixel 3 still sticks to the single reversing camera. Unlike phones like the LG V40 and the Huawei P20 Pro, which reached up to three cameras this year, Google sticks to its proven, only AI-optimized lens. But even with a single lens, the Pixel 3 will outperform most, if not all, smartphone cameras.
Both the Pixel 3 and the 3 XL use the same 12.2-MP lens with a ƒ / 1.8 aperture and 1.4 μm pixels. But thanks to Google Visual Core and HDR plus, the Pixel 3 XL can capture a wealth of detail and process that detail in seconds. The Pixel 3 has some new features to enhance photography.
Top Shot takes multiple photos and with machine learning, the Pixel 3 recommends the best photo from the list, where everyone is smiling and their eyes are open. Night Vision uses machine learning to choose the right colors in low-light conditions for well-lit photos without flash.

Google has not re-equipped the 3.5mm headphone jack with the device. There is a dongle so you can still use wired headphones. However, Google has (for the first time) a pair of USB-C Pixel Buds to compensate. With Android 9.0 Pie on board (more on that later), the Pixel 3 supports many Hi-Fi Bluetooth audio codecs.
In addition, the front speakers return. These stereo speakers are 40% louder than last year and should be especially helpful when playing videos. This makes the Pixel 3 one of the few flagship smartphones that still have this feature.
- 3.5mm Headphone Jack: No
- Stereo Speakers: Yes, Front
- Microphones: three in all
- Max. Speaker volume: Currently not known
In Pixel 3 you will find all standard sensors. The acceleration sensor detects the movement and inclination of your device. This sensor is often used by Google Maps to detect your movement as you navigate to your destination. It is also useful for games where the tilt of the phone is used for movement.
The integrated proximity sensor detects when objects are near the screen and turns off the display when you hold the ear to the speaker. The Hall Effect sensor detects covers to activate a menu that appears once in the accessory.
The magnetometer detects the Earth's magnetic field along the X, Y and Z axes. It can be used for a basic compass app or provide elevation data. The barometer measures the air pressure and the ambient light sensor detects the ambient light for the automatic screen brightness.
The Pixel 3 also has Active Edge, pressure-sensitive pages that can be pressed to activate an app. Like its predecessor, this activates Google Assistant.
- Sensors: Active Edge, Barometer, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Proximity Sensor, Magnetometer, Ambient Light Sensor, Hall Effect Sensor,
Connectivity  The Pixel 3 contains Bluetooth 5. For the connection has The GSM unlocked version has a single Nano-SIM slot. Depending on the market, however, there is also support for eSIM. As for Wi-Fi, the Pixel 3 supports up to 802.11ac, one of the fastest available version.

When It Comes to Biometrics, Google Remains in the Rear-mounted Fingerprint -Scanner. It can be used to unlock apps, make payments, and even wipe the notification panel. And thanks to Android 9.0 Pie, the fingerprint prompt is consistent so all apps that request your fingerprint look the same.
In addition to the fingerprint scanner, Google also introduces the security module Titan. Designed specifically for the Pixel 3 product line, this security chip helps protect your password and operating systems from tampering.
- Security: Fingerprint Scanner (Rear)
