The wait is over. Today we finally attended the presentation of Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL where the technological manufacturer has confirmed and denied some of the many rumors that have been poured these days on their new phones. As expected, the brand presents two variants of the same mobile depending on the size, but now we are going to focus on the features and price of Google Pixel 3 .
We are facing the first big phones that are presented in a month where we will also meet the and the , as well as the . Arriving first has its good things and its bad things, but we will not make you wait too long to know them all. Before going through all its features one by one, you can take a look at the design of the mobile, which this time looks a screen similar to the previous versions of the mobile, without notch (despite the 18: 9 display format) and that still does not bet on a double camera in the back.
Features of Google Pixel 3
Let’s face it, we expected a lot more from Google , but there’s not much more I can offer. It seems that the strategy of the American giant is to offer a more classic terminal for those who hate the fashions of huge mobile phones with an eyebrow that prevents the correct visibility of content and another that, precisely, continues to be smodas.
Focusing on the most classic slope comes this Google Pixel 3 , a smartphone with a 5.5-inch screen with Full HD + resolution, although it does not reach the upper edges, if it does with the sides. We speak of a P-OLED panel whose size results in a density of 459 ppi and is protected by Gorilla Glass 5. In this table you can check at a glance all the features of Google Pixel 3 .

Under this screen we find the best processor of Qualcomm manufactured to date, a Snapdragon 845 CPU manufactured under the process of 10 nm that combines 4 Cortex A75 cores running at 2.8 GHz for maximum power and 4 Cortex A55 cores operating at a speed of 1.8 GHz. This time we find the same memory and storage as in , that is, 4 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage.
The brand continues to renounce the use of dual cameras on their phones and, really, it has worked very well for them. The camera of the is still one of the best on the market even today and it seems that Google Pixel 3 will continue on this path. The multimedia component of the mobile consists of a 12.2 Mpx rear sensor with f / 1.8 aperture and a double front camera with 8.2 Mpx sensors with aperture f / 2.2. To this we must add the dual stereo speaker of the smartphone.
More than in the hardware, the improvements of the Google Pixel 3 camera can be found in its software and in the Artificial Intelligence of Android 9 applied to the photographic field. The smartphone boasts a feature called “Top Shot, which allows you to take pictures before and after pressing the shutter button thanks to automatic learning in order to obtain the best possible capture.
Similarly, the Photobooth tool will ensure that you get the best possible selfies thanks to the use of the front wide-angle lens. We also have AI-assisted zoom functions and a renewed focus to capture the subject at all times while staying sharp.
The features of the Google Pixel 3 Xl are completed with a 2,915 mAh battery with fast wireless charging technology and Android 9 Pie as operating system.
Taking a look at the images of Google Pixel 3 we see that Google has not wanted to risk too much. Made in polycarbonate and aluminum, the smartphone once again shows off that double tone on the back that has already become the hallmark of the company’s smartphones. Once again, both the on / off button on the terminal and the volume control keys on the Pixel 3 are located on the right side of a phone.
The lower part houses a USB type C port while the back of the mobile presents the fingerprint sensor again. This time we were left without a 3.5mm headphone jack as is happening with so many other Android range manufacturers.
Android 9 Pure Pie
Who buys a Google phone seeks, in addition to quality construction and performance out of trouble (we hope), the purest Android experience we can enjoy on a mobile phone. This is one of the main strengths with which Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL play against the competition, as both phones arrive with Android 9 Pie on the market.
The latest version of present in the market and now comes the first phone with the software installed from scratch. As you know, the innovations of Android 9 Pie are focused on improving artificial intelligence, security and other improvements aimed at improving the performance and usability of our smartphones.
Price and availability
As the big G has officially announced, the price of the new Google Pixel 3 will start from $ 799 in its most basic version, which starts with internal memory of 64 GB. For its part, the model available with 128 GB will cost $ 899.
At the moment, the company has not offered details about the price of Google Pixel 3 in Spain, if it finally debuts in our market. We must remember that last year the only model that came to the stores was the Google Pixel 2 XL, so we have to wait to confirm the commercial launch of the model.
