New Pixel 3 photos give a clear look at Google’s upcoming phone

Are you an Android fan who’s tired of hearing about Apple after those iPhone XS and Apple Watch Series 3 leaks? If so, I’ve got some good news for you.

Photos of the Google Pixel 3 have now leaked out. Posted to Reddit, they show a phone that looks similar to the Pixel 3 XL, complete with a chin, special glossy panel that houses the rear camera, and a rear fingerprint reader. The one big change here? There’s no notch at the top of the screen.

This leak also contains some alleged spec details of the Pixel 3. The upcoming Google flagship is said to include a 5.5-inch 2160×1080 display, dual 8MP front cameras (including one that’s listed as having both f/1.8 and f/2.2 apertures), and a 2915mAh battery. Those are all upgrades from the Pixel 2, which has a 5-inch 1920×1080 screen, a single 8MP front camera, and a 2700mAh battery.

Google hasn’t made any announcements about an event for its new Pixel phones, but it’s rumored that we’ll get to meet the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL on October 9th. Based on what we’ve heard about them so far, are you interested in either of Google’s upcoming Pixels?

    That battery life though -_-

    • Mickey T

      Bigger battery and only a 1080p screen. Should last all day.

  • wcshadow

    cant buy on EIP so no point in posting

    • Trevnerdio

      Why can’t you just do the no-interest deal through Google…?

      • Goober

        But this post is still irrelevant to T-Mobile. We’re on their unofficial news site after all…

        • Phone Guy

          Why. It was just announced it will have the 600MHZ band 71. Why irrelevant?

    • Phone Guy

      Debit Card anyone? Either way you pay for it.

  • SirStephenH

    I’m sorry but 1080p isn’t “high end”.

    Also, I’m getting tired of the ever shrinking bezels. I prefer to hold my phone and not have it all freak out because I’m holding it. These virtually non-existent mean the screen picks up “touches” from your hands on the edge of the screen.

    • Jason Caprio

      That’s what a case is for lol

    • JStatt

      I understand the edge complaint on a tablet, but why are you holding a phone by the face of its surface? Everyone holds it by the sides.

      The Pixel 3 (above) has a 5.5-inch 2160×1080 display, but a T-Mobile ONE plan only lets you stream video at 480p, and honestly I can’t even tell the difference. You could pay $10 for One+ plan and get it bumped up to 1080p, But NONE of the carriers have ANY streaming video services higher than 1080.

      As for the bezels this phone looks exactly like my Pixel 2 XL and they’re fine, in fact NO bezels would be OK with me. The front firing speakers sound good too on (P2XL)

    • Phone Guy

      Mine on the S9 has never picked up one unintended touch ever. You must have some big digits or kitty paws.

  • Philip

    Is the speakers loud on these phones?

    • pda96

      It’s not out yet. I’m sure we’ll find out soon.

  • pda96

    This is the more promising of the 2. The XL has a notch so it’s a no go for me. But then, the asking prices will be sky high like before. So I suspect Google would be lucky if they could sell 4 million copies of these (as with the Pixel 2s).

    • Goober

      They’d be able to sell more if they’d let other carriers carry them rather than just Verizon.

      • Evan Lam

        The poster on Reddit stated that it is a test device for a carrier other than Verizon so the exclusivity deal may be coming to an end.

        • Phone Guy

          Its going to have the 600MHZ band 71. I saw the antennas online today. Great thing.

      • Mister Wirez

        Supposedly T-Mobile is going to carry the Pixel 3’s

    • Phone Guy

      Can’t you just turn off the notch, and make the top all black like every other phone. It will just show your notification and will look just like a Samsung S9 or something when set that way.

      • pda96

        I don’t think there’s an option to “turn off” the notch like the LG G7. All the articles about the Pixel 3 XL don’t mention that option.

  • Ver

    Wow, not a lot of interest in the Pixel. I thought there would be a lot more. Was hoping for comments because I am considering this phone.

  • vinnyjr

    Pixel 3 has a 5.5 inch screen, too big. I want a 5 inch phone, not a damn tablet. Ridiculous, Anything bigger than a 5 inch screen is just a waste IMO. 5 inch screen with a big battery is perfect.

    • Mister Wirez

      I thought that too because I was a Nexus purity guy, but couldn’t find a “pure” Android phone at 5 to 5.25 inch. So the wife and I bit the bullet and bought couple of 6″ Pixel 2 XL’s. We love them.
      Now I’m worried about the 5.5″ Pixel 3 being too small, because I am not sure I can deal with the notch on the bigger Pixel 3 XL. (Google always leaves wanting something else).

      Anyway, we found the Pixel 2 XL really isn’t a “whole lot bigger” than our nexus 5X’s were, due to the smaller bezels, thinness, and the 18:9 (2 to 1) aspect ratio, which does make it seem much less massive.

      The trending of new phones is bigger, thinner, & bezel-less. A 5″ phone might be hard to find, I haven’t looked for a year or so.. But I’d bet you would like the Pixel 3 though if you tried it. It looks exactly like the Pixel 2 XL, but a half inch smaller. I don’t think there is anything else that close to 5″.

      • The One

        The Sony Xperia XZ Compact line of phones all meet your requirements – nearly stock android experience with fast updates, small displays and flagship specs.

  • Kevin Wu

    The perfect phone for me. Hopefully it starts at $649. Otherwise i might buy Z3 play. Is this a curve screen?

    • The One

      Nearly all flagships come with the “3D” curved edges these days0 that prevent glass screen protectors from truly reaching edge to edge. I miss the old flat screens with no curves. (Not to be mistaken for Galaxy style edge displays which actually bend around the edge of the phone – I hate those too but for other reasons)

  • J.J.

    Hideous!

    • CC

      that is being very kind

  • Jerry Rich

    Note 9 by a mile!

    • Phone Guy

      Isn’t the Note 9 like 30% more $$ or?? Do they even compete in the same price point?
