Google's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are here, official
Yes, Google's new flagships have arrived. While the hardware design and general selling point have barely changed (Google frontal cameras), Google is addressing evolutionary software issues – more AI intelligence, especially in the cameras, with Top Shot choosing the best photo through algorithms, Night Sight (which promises better shooting in low light conditions) and even Super Res Zoom, which uses AI to enhance the image quality of digital zoom lenses.
The main difference between the Pixel 3 XL and its smaller brother is a notch. The larger version brings the screens closer to the edges of the phone, while the Pixel 3 provides a little more bezel to clog speakers and cameras. The new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL can be pre-ordered in the US from $ 799 and $ 899, respectively. Shipping starts on October 1
