Google Pixel 3 Launch and Specifications: All you need to know about the Google PIxel 3
There is word that a new generation Google Pixel will be in the market soon. The speculation is that not only one Google Pixel smartphone is expected, but two of them. This will be sometimes in September to November of this year.
The new pixels nicknames Walleye and Taimen will have almost all the features of the original pixel but with a few modifications. The Walleye, for example, is very similar to the original pixel but with a smaller display. Taimen, on the other hand, will feature a larger display but with much lower bezels.
What makes Google Pixel stand out?
When Google went into the market with the announcement of their first smartphone, there was fear that it would not compete effectively with other giants like Samsung and Apple who have established a niche for themselves in the market. Google, however, proved everyone wrong by launching the Google Pixel. It is sporty and has the same features as does an iPhone. There are other features Google Pixel has that are not found in other brands which makes the smartphone stand out. Below is the Google Pixel Phone review with some of the features that make it stand out.
Google Pixel camera review
One of the major features that almost everyone looks out for is the camera. Many people will buy a smartphone simply because the camera stands out or gives the best photos. Google Pixel has one of the best cameras in the market. It has a 12.3 megapixel which you will not find with many other smartphone cameras. The camera’s pictures are of the highest quality irrespective of the environment at the time the pictures are taken. So far, the only other phone with a high-quality camera is the iPhone 7 series, and the Google Pixel smartphone camera is much better than that. That alone tells you why the new Google Pixel stands out
You can easily open the Google Pixel camera by double tapping on the power button. This comes especially handy for people that love to take selfies. The camera opens immediately, and you can start taking your pictures instantly.
If you want to switch the cameras from front to back, you simply twist the smartphone. This gives you a chance to capture every image from all angles.
Another aspect that will attract you to a smartphone is the battery life. No one wants to buy a phone that will die on them after a few hours. With Google Pixel, you do not have worry about the battery life dying off on you unexpectedly. The battery can last for 13 hours when in use. It requires a very short time to charge to get hours of usage. If you charge the Google Pixel for only 15 minutes, it will give you 7 hours of battery time. Very few smartphones in the market will match that.
Many of the phones in the market fail miserably because of their poor and weak features. Google Pixel, on the other hand, has very strong features. The screen is 1080p, its quad processor is 1.6 GHz and it has a RAM of 4 GB. Google Pixel has a minimum storage space of 32GB. Like most other smartphones, it runs on the Android operating system but with a much better performance.
It has a beautiful design which looks more like that of the iPhone. The colours are amazing and quite rare. Not many smartphones have the colours of the Google Pixel. These are Very Silver, Really Blue and Quite Black for the original Google Pixel and Black, Just Black and White for the Google Pixel 2XL.

Google Pixel 3
It may only be gossip for now but even the other two pixels started as a gossip. Recently Google leaked out the word that they will add a new Pixel in the market. The new Google Pixel 3 will be a notch higher better than the last two pixels. Some of the specifications rumoured to make the new Google Pixel 3 different from the others are
- An indented screen
- A smaller bezel-less phone than the other pixels
- Two models already christened Taimen and Walleye
- They will run on low spec Android operating system
- Less expensive than the other models
There are rumours that the pixel 3 models may come with an in-display scanner. If this happens, then the Google Pixel 3 will be the first smartphone to have such a feature. This may be even better news for Google considering the next Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will not come out with too many improvements. This may take Google Pixel 3 at the top of the list of the most sought-after smartphone in the market.
Many of the Google smartphone users are also anticipating that Google will not copy any of the iPhone features. When it comes to resources, the only other company that would rival Apple is Google and so the feeling is they should use their resources to come up with something very original.
The new models may also come with improved headphones. The claim is that the Google Pixel 2 models have very quiet stereo speakers, but they want the new ones to have more life. Instead of introducing new features, they could tweak some of the old features to come up with something completely different.
The optical zoom needs some improvement too even though now the Google Pixel has one of the best cameras. The zoom, however, is not satisfactory, and some users feel that one which is 3 times better than the other models would do the phone some good.
The specifications about the new Google Pixel 3 and 3XL are just rumours. There is some time before we find out whether Google will implement everything as the rumours indicate. For now, Google Pixel remains one of the best smartphones to own in the market and its giving Samsung and Apple a run for their money.
