The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL sojourn a world’s best smartphones (and with good reason). But, detached from one accident, a really existence of
’s hotly expected Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL has remained a mystery. Until now…
Shedding new light on Google’s skeleton is arguably a web’s many famous tipster Evan Blass, aka @evleaks. In a new tweet, Blass – who has an forlorn record of on-point leaks – arguable both a existence of a new Pixels and their launch date.
Citing “a arguable source”, Blass arguable Google will indeed keep a dual phone plan (unlike Apple that is relocating to three iPhone X designs) and we will get both a ‘Pixel 3’ and a ‘Pixel 3 XL’. And both will be expensive.
As for a launch, Blass states Google will repeat a initial hardware eventuality it hold final year on Oct 4th and a Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be a title announcements. Google has nonetheless to endorse this eventuality or a timing but, given Blass’ assurance, I’d pattern a identical late September/early Oct timeframe creation a new Pixels dual of a final vital smartphone releases of a year.
Unfortunately, we still know next-to-nothing about a hardware changes Google will make to both phones (Wishlist: 3x visual zoom, many smaller bezels, no nick and louder stereo speakers – please). But Blass did supplement that Google will use a hardware eventuality to also launch a second era of a argumentative Pixel Buds and deliver a initial Pixel-branded smartwatch.
For a record, we like a strange Pixel Buds a lot some-more than many notwithstanding their fiddly pattern (audio peculiarity and personal partner formation simply tip Apple’s AirPods) so some courteous tweaks here could outcome in a vital hit. As for a Pixel watch, it feels like Google’s final possibility to breathe life into a struggling WearOS (formally Android Wear) platform. For that, it’s substantially now or never.
But a Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be a categorical attractions (talk of a third model reduction Pixel branding seems to be fading) and with a Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL still delivering a best point-and-shoot smartphone photography on a market, all eyes will be on either Google rests on a laurels this year or takes another seismic jump forward.
All eyes will also be on either Google – during a umpteenth time of seeking – can, during last, keep a new Pixels in stock…
