The Pixel is back, and packed with more exciting, cutting-edge features than ever before. Some of the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL's best bits include an all-new screen, two amazing cameras and an even more intelligent Google Assistant.
See exactly what the Google 3 and 3 XL have in store below.
1 - 12.2 MP Dual Camera
Of course, we can't talk about the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL without discussing the camera. Both handsets have the same cameras on board: a 12.2MP dual-lens rear camera and a dual-lens 8MP front-facing camera. There's a lot more to the Google Pixel 3's camera than just megapixels though. Thanks to machine learning, Google has ensured the devices always deliver exceptional shots. Optical image stabilisation helps images to always stay focused, while Night Sight adjusts the camera's settings, so you can capture details in darker conditions.
There's a new feature new called Top Shot too, which means you'll never miss a moment. The feature snaps images before and after you press the shutter button, and then automatically selects the very best photo for you. And, thanks to the dual-lens selfie camera, the f/2.2 wide-angle lens makes group shots are even either. Squeeze everyone into one shot, and ditch the selfie stick.
2 - OLED Screen
While previous Pixel phones have always used AMOLED technology for their screens, Google has upgraded to advanced OLED for its third-generation handsets. The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL both have an OLED display, which promises to deliver even more detail, sharpness and vibrancy than before.
The screen-to-body ratio of the new Google Pixel devices have been improved too. While the overall frames of both handsets hardly differ from the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, both displays are much bigger. The Pixel 3 has a 5.5-inch screen with a 77.2% screen-to-body ratio, while the Pixel 3 XL boasts a 6.3-inch screen with a whopping 82.8% screen-to-body ratio.
3 - Google Assistant
Make a call, send a message, set a reminder or even order a taxi home, just by speaking to Google Assistant. The virtual assistant has been a huge hit since it first launched, but Google has released new hardware alongside the release of the new Pixel duo.
Google Assistant can now screen calls, so whenever an unknown number rings you'll be able to check who's on the line, and why they're calling, before picking up. It's great for avoiding calls or checking the urgency of a call while you're busy. Just press 'Screen Call' when the number pops up, and the person calling will be asked to state their name and reason for calling. It'll all be transcribed to you, in real time, on your Google Pixel 3.
You will also be able to access Google Assistant from the lock screen, ideal if you need to know something quick but have no hands spare.
4 - Wireless Charging
Thanks to a new, all-glass back (a smartphone first for Google), the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL now support wireless charging. All you need is a Qi compatible charger to start powering up.
The battery life of both devices is impressive too. You can expect a full day of charge from each handset, with the smaller Pixel 3 fuelled by a 2,915mAh battery and the larger Pixel 3 XL storing a 3,430mAh battery under the hood.
5 - Android Pie
Both the handsets will be two of the first phones to be released with Android 9, aka Android Pie. As well as improving the overall efficiency of Android devices, the new operating system has a collection of innovative features to enhance your overall user experience.
From an entire Digital Wellbeing hub that allows you to see how much time you're spending on your device, set app timers and even a Wind Down feature to help you sleep more soundly to new gestures and an improved notification centre, there really is loads to explore.
