Google Determined to Chase the iPhone With Upcoming Pixel Upgrades

Leaked Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL screen protectors confirm notch and stereo speakers

Leaked Front Screen For Pixel 3 And Pixel 3 XL Photos Shown Online

Despite Google's previous "Don't be evil" mantra and the theoretical appeal of the phone, Droid Life reported that the retail sales rights to the phone will be exclusive to Verizon Communications Inc., adding that the deal is no great surprise given both companies have worked together in the past. Instead, it'll be straddling it, with two display approaches.

The front side of the phones is recreated after the unofficial pictures arrived online showing Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL but the backside of the phones is the creation of the author. Apple is planning a new low-priced iPhone, an update to the iPhone X size, and a larger phone with an about 6.5-inch screen for this year as well, Bloomberg News has reported. The display also will have a notch at the top, to house a speaker and camera.

It'll support the edge-to-edge notch design popularized by Apple, as well as some of the gesture controls used on the iPhone X.

The new devices will have upgraded rear cameras and two front-facing cameras.

Last September, on the eve of the Pixel 2 launch, Google announced that it would acquire about 2,000 employees from the struggling handset maker HTC. In addition, the screen of the Pixel 3 XL logically a lot bigger than the screen of the Pixel 3.

After the booming trend of notch displays and dual camera setups, various mobile manufacturers have been taking "trends" into consideration.

By contrast, the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL only have a single front-facing camera. If Google sticks to its current schedule, we have another four months and change to go before the company takes the wraps off its next-generation Pixel phones.

The only thing that's now sure about the Pixel 3 is that this new smartphone line will come with the latest version of Google's Android operating system, which promises Home button gesture navigation and updated Google Assistant. For the third year in a row, Verizon will be the exclusive USA carrier partner for the new Pixels. If you're anxious, just make sure you've got a secure lock screen setup so any of your pesky/nosy friends can't go snooping about your messages. Android P is explicitly created to allow developers to build content around notches, so the focus appears to be on using software to avoid the design issue rather than building rectangular hardware.

On the iPhone, if you say "" to Google Assistant, then you get a reply, "I can't read text messages yet".
