All the leaks that have been hadn't fallen short of exact. The core hardware inside the phone is typical of what you get in a high-end phone nowadays. The Pixel 3 XL starts at $899, $50 more than the Pixel 2 XL's $849 price tag. The lower part of the glass had a matte finish.

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL has been in the news for some reason or the other for the past couple of months. And for life at home, we designed a smart display so you can hear and see the info you need and manage your connected home from a single screen. All that space is wisely used by Google though as it houses dual front-facing cameras and a speaker.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, the successors to the Pixel 2, have albeit leaked entirely, but there's still plenty that remains under wraps.

For storage, both models will come in 64GB and 128GB variants without support for expandable storage. On the inside, both will pack Snapdragon 845 processors and 4GB of RAM. Wireless charging support could also mean Google would announce its own wireless charging stand, or the "Pixel stand". It has a USB Type-C connection on one of the sides, and black areas on both sides could indicate that it comes with LTE cellular compatibility. The company is offering the 9V/2A (18W) fast charging power adapter for wired charging.

The back of the Pixel 3 phones are expected to be entirely glass, with the bottom half once again coated in a matte paint to give it that two-tone look.

Google is expected to include a Pixelbook Pen with the Slate tablet. However, Google has further improved its HDR+ algorithm which will allow the devices to capture even better photos.

There have been few details about a new pair of Pixel Buds, Google's Bluetooth ear buds.

At the front, there are dual 8MP shooters.

For instance, the camera's features for better shots will take advantage of software on the device itself, so that nothing gets sent to Google's servers - unless you enable a backup feature with Google Photos.

Capture smiles not blinks: A feature we call Top Shot uses AI to help you capture the flawless photo every time. There was one feature in particular, however, that probably should have been mentioned because it's the one Pixel 3 feature that should make every Android fan want the phone.

Leaks are one thing, but a retailer accidentally selling a product early is something different altogether. As for software, the devices will ship with the latest Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box. Among it was the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

The Pixel 3 XL clicks such good photos that it is freaky. There's also an exclusive Call screening feature which will automatically answer suspected spam calls and ask the caller who they are and transcribe the call, all without requiring an internet connection. Prices start at $799. However, interested customers can buy the device unlocked directly from Google or through Project Fi.
