The Pixel 3 and 3 XL are touted to be one of the worst kept secrets of the smartphone industry, with new leaks and rumours surfacing almost every week for the last few months.
However, it will likely feel a bit lackluster when Google announces the Google Pixel 3 XL, as we've already seen so much of the device over the past few months.
The Walking Dead Ratings Down Sharply In Season Nine Premiere
Those numbers are down 50% and 45% from last year's season premiere numbers of a 5.0 demo rating and 11.44 million viewers. That is the lowest rating in adults 18-49 since the show began, with the previous low being a 2.7 for the series premiere.
The larger version will - like most other new smartphones released this year - follow Apple and other manufacturers by having a notch in order to maximise the reaches of the front display on the OLED screen. The look has stirred controversy, but it may be a worthy trade-off for the two selfie cameras. Both cameras have a resolution of 12-megapixels, but there is no idea on what the second camera does. As a successor to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, the new Pixel 3 models are expected to run Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box and will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC. No, don't expect a headphone jack or microSD card slot. The Pixel 3 packaging was all legit, and both the device's feel and specs gave a clear impression that it wasn't a fake, not to mention lining up with all the recent leaks.
On the software front, the new Pixels are running on Android 9.0 Pie. There's even supposed to be a desktop mode, similar to what we saw on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 (but hopefully better). The Pixel Slate will also have a detachable keyboard accessory, transforming the tablet into a capable work machine. The device will be inferior to the other two Pixel smartphones, and it's not entirely impossible that may happen, as Google may want to test the mid-range market as well, though the device probably will not become official tomorrow. It'll be interesting to see what comes of that long wait.
