Google Pixel 3 Leaks and Rumours 2018

Leakes/Rumors

The latest rumors on the Google Pixel 3 specifications and launch date.

Google pixel 3: Google Pixel series has been an ace for Google in the mobile market. It hasn’t been long to the launch of Google Pixel 2 and the leaks on the launch of Google Pixel 3 are already getting out there.

The Pixel 3 release date:

The Pixel phones are unlikely to be unveiled before early October 2018, with an on-sale date later in October probably. For the past two years Google has unveiled the new phones on 4 October, so 4 October 2018. They will come with the latest version of Android – Android 9.0 P – but as we saw in 2017 they may not be the first devices to ship with that OS. It will be a pure version of the software, running exactly as Google intends, with regular security updates and no bloatware.

Rumored features and specifications for the Pixel 3:

Early rumors suggest there will be three Pixel phones announced. But bear in mind that this was also the case in 2017 and we saw only two new Pixel phones announced. Alleged code names include Crosshatch, Albacore, and Blueline, according to rumors. Although there is talk that Google will simply reference them internally as A, B, and C to hide their details from the outside world.

If it does happen, we could see a cheaper model with pricing more in line with the old Nexus phones than Pixel, which is more expensive than ever with the Pixel 2 XL retailing at £629. Alternatively, and as most rumors seem to suggest, the third model will be a super-high-spec version that is a closer competitor to the iPhone X.

Within those three models, there will certainly be one that we would regard as the flagship, and for this model. We’d expect to see the Snapdragon 845 processor running the show. This is a 7 nm chip that is faster and 30 percent more efficient than any before. Thanks to an octa-core Kryo 385 CPU with four 2.8GHz high-power cores and four 1.8GHz low power cores. Qualcomm’s new super-fast X20 LTE modem is built-in. Which offering CAT 18 speeds of more than 1Gbps, as well as an enhanced Spectra 280 image signal processor.

This might be the year Google bumps up the RAM to 6GB, while storage is likely to remain at 64GB and 128GB. We’d like to see Google retain the waterproofing (perhaps upgraded from IP67 to IP68) and aluminum chassis. While it’s probable that the 18:9 pOLED display will also remain. But this time around the new Pixel might also feature an under-glass fingerprint sensor. We’d like to see the 18:9 panel in the cheaper model, too, and for Google to add wireless charging.
