Google Pixel 3 to take better selfies with 'Top Shot'

Google Pixel 3 to take better selfies with 'Top Shot'

Google is expected to announce its next generation of phones, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, this week at an event in NY. Part of the reason for the leaks was the massive hype behind the phone, and that tells us that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have been two of the most awaited phones this year. The Pixel Slate will also have a detachable keyboard accessory, transforming the tablet into a capable work machine. But all of the complaints are also expected to taper off if Google manages to outdo itself in the camera department of the device. And if the Google Pixel 3 XL outshines its predecessor on the camera side of things, then it will likely outweigh the complaints regarding the notch and the RAM. And that's how much you'd have to pay for the Pixel 3 XL in Hong Kong right now.

The video by the Google Japan channel on YouTube teases the availability of the Active Edge feature on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. A couple of weeks ago, I posted the latest findings on this device, but with the event being held tomorrow we now know even more.

Google is gearing up for it most awaited event of the year which is going to take place on October 9. Reportedly, Google is also planning to add the Pixel camera app into the Slate to help it shoot Pixel phones-like bokeh shots. The Pixel phones are also set to come with a wireless charging stand that props the phone up while it charges to make the screen visible, nearly like a docking station of old but wireless. And now, thanks to Jon Prosser via Twitter we might have our first look at marketing materials for this rumored "Home Hub".


The main camera meanwhile is a single-lens 12.2MP one, while on the front there's a dual-lens 8MP camera. The device will be available for grabs in dark blue color.

Both phones are expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC and paired with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage.

The review shows off the phone in all its glory, confirming what you get in the box, and 100% of its new features and specs.
