Google today unveiled their two new flagship device- the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL at an event in New York. As seen by the heap of leaks all over the internet from last few weeks the phones really look same and there is no change from the leaks. Moving on from the leaks, as seen by the previous gen Pixel smartphones the Pixel 3 is mainly focused on the camera and software part.

The Pixel 3 and 3 XL only differs in the screen size and battery, except that everything is similar on these devices. The Google Pixel 3 comes with a 5.5-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED 18:9 display with support for HDR and the Pixel 3 XL comes with 6.3-inch (2880 x 1440 pixels) Quad HD+ AMOLED display with a notch. Both the phones are protected up front with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. They are powered by an Octa-core Snapdragon 845 Processor, Adreno 630GPU, 4GB RAM and they come in two storage options – 64GB and 128 GB with no support to sd card. As expected they run on the latest Android 9.0 Pie and comes with 2915mAh and 3430mAh battery with fast charging which can give you seven hours of use in 15 minutes of charge via USB Type-C and they also support wireless charging. Google Pixel 3 and 3XL
