After crowded leaks appeared on the internet, Google finally officially launched two of its flagship smartphones, Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL . This smartphone mostly retains the Pixel’s distinctive dual-tone rear body and is confident with a single rear camera.
Even so, the latest Pixel 3 duo comes with the Android 9 Pie operating system, a faster chipset, some smart customization and wireless charging support. Google also seems to still have high ambitions through this smartphone to “stand” again as the king of smart phone cameras.
In addition, Google has also overcome one of the biggest problems faced by the 2 XL Pixels that were present last year, namely that there are no blue tints and burn-in issues. While the problem is resolved, not a few are disappointed because Google packs the 3 XL Pixel with such great bangs.
As revealed through a number of leaks that appear in cyberspace, the striking difference between Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is the size of the screen. Pixel 3 has a 5.5 inch screen size, while the 3 XL Pixel has a 6.3 inch screen size. In addition, XL also has a larger battery.
The new Duo Pixel 3 introduced by Google still has one main camera that enters the back of the device. Even so, Google boasted that one of the main camera lenses that have been upgraded. In addition, Google also has inserted the AI feature “Top Shot” .
Not to forget, Google has also equipped the main camera with a service similar to Google Clips “Photobooth” and Super zoom. On the front, there is a dual-camera that will be useful for those who have a selfie hobby.
As already mentioned, the rear camera has a Top Shot feature. Through this feature, the Duo Pixel 3 can take pictures of a set of images and then use AI to select and combine images into one so that the best photo is selected.
Other Google services that are embedded in the Pixel 3 and 3 XL Pixel cameras are Google Lens. Interestingly, users can take advantage of this feature when offline. Portrait mode has now also been upgraded and users can choose the background blur after shooting.
Speaking of the front camera, users can find a new Photobooth feature that can basically ask the device to take pictures when smiling or doing a face movement that looks ridiculous.
The user doesn’t need to worry by pressing the shutter button and just playing and having fun in front of the camera. As a result, users can still get photos that look cool. One of the best benefits of Pixel is unlimited and free storage.
Standard battery capacity
Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL come with a battery capacity that is arguably standard. Pixel 3 has a battery capacity of 2,915 mAh, while the Pixel 3 XL has a 3,430 mAh battery. Both can be filled through USB-C and equipped with a USB Power Delivery charger head in the sales box.
One thing is very surprising, the Pixel 3 Series is also the first in the Pixel lineage to support wireless charging. It’s just that, Google sells the charging stand or the so-called Pixel Stand separately.
The benefits of the Pixel Stand are when the user puts the smartphone on it, Google Assistant will be optimized. That way, users can shout from the whole room, as can be done with Google Home or Amazon Echos.
And when Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL stands above the Pixel Stand , this smartphone can also be a photo frame automatically. Google sells Pixel Stands for US $ 80 or around Rp1.2 million and has some cool features that can be tried by Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL users.
The Duo Pixel 3 also supports fast wireless charging standards of up to 10 watts. Of course, this is an improvement that can be appreciated by loyal Pixel users. While charging with a cable is still a little faster, which is a maximum of 18 watts.
