Recently, Google accidentally leaked the images of its third generation Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL flagships. These leaks give a good insight into the design, performance, and other updates introduced in the new Pixel ranges. So far, the Android users are considering the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL flagships as the most anticipated Android phones in the market.
Specifications of the New Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL ranges Revealed So Far
The Pixel smartphones have already gained popularity in the market. Google has incorporated machine learning and AI technologies in these smartphones. Due to which, there are no third-party software tweaks in these Android phones. Furthermore, the users are able to experience the latest Android updates on their Pixel smartphones.
Now, the Pixel smartphone users are expecting upgraded specifications and design in the new flagship range. According to the latest leaks, Google is expected to introduce sleek and updated designs for the new Pixel smartphones. The design of the Pixel 3 XL will be somewhat similar to the Apple’s iPhone X. There will be a notch at the top of the phone to accommodate two speakers. However, there will be a large chin bezel at the bottom of the smartphone.
Besides this, the new Pixel ranges will arrive with a single lens camera setup instead of a dual lens camera setup. In terms of hardware, the Pixel 3 XL will be packed with a pair of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 CPU and 4GB RAM. And it will run on Android P Operating System. Moreover, the single-core of the Pixel 3 XL shows a Geekbench score of 2426 and a multi-core Geekbench score of 8355. Both of these scores are significantly higher compared to that of the Pixel 2 XL smartphone.
How 4GB RAM can render the sales of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL?
As we all know that Samsung has already upgraded its 4GB holdout to 6GB with the release of Galaxy Note 8 in 2017. Similarly, the midrange OnePlus 6 is available in the market in the 6GB and 8GB variants. Whereas, the new Pixel flagship comes with 4GB RAM, which might be problematic in competing with its rivals. Even the current Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL flagships don’t offer the kind of performance and power as of 2018 flagship phones due to their 4GB RAM.
The Android Police founder Artem Russakovskii also highlighted this issue in his latest tweets, which were backed by the popular YouTuber MKBHD. The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users have already reported memory management and performance issues in their Pixel smartphones after using them for 8-10 months. For this reason, the new Pixel range might be a tough sell for Google in late 2018.
