Google teases a surprise coming in the Pixel 3 XL launch tomorrow

Also, Google has rounded the edges a bit more thoroughly in the Pixel 3 XL and that, for my first impression, made the new phone look and feel slimmer than the Pixel 2 XL. All the Digital Wellbeing features which did not initially launch with Android 9.0 Pie are also present and fully working on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Google has partnered with renowned photographer Annie Leibowitz who will be using the Pixel 3 for her latest project, along with seven other photographers who used it to shoot cover photos for seven magazines.

Other software tweaks and features worth noting include a call screening feature, Flip to Shhh, and Google's new Titan Security chip.

Previous leaks have revealed that the Pixel 3 will have a 5.5-inch FHD+ display while the Pixel 3 XL will come with a 6.2-inch QHD+ display. Assistant shows an overview of your day, calendar alerts and more. In fact, both phones are already available for pre-order in the Google Store ahead of their October 18th release.

The Black and Blue Pixelbook pen is listed side-by-side with the current White and Silver Pen on the stores Pixelbook page under "You also might be into". Unfortunately, the new features have come alongside an increase in cost. The Playmoji will soon have characters from Marvel Cinematic Universe. And that's how much you'd have to pay for the Pixel 3 XL in Hong Kong right now. Though there are some improvements in the camera department as well. Furthermore, the Pixel 3 comes with an IP68 rating while the predecessor had an IP67 rating for water and dust resistant protection.

The back plastic panel is replaced with matte glass that in turn is created to support wireless charging.

The 64GB Pixel 2 XL starts at £799 but if you opt for the 128GB model the price tag goes up to £899. The Pixel 3 phones are also stated to have the best smartphone camera, and they have new software features such as Night Sight and Super Res Zoom. The Pixel 3 comes with a second front facing camera that captures "184 per cent more of the scene than iPhone Xs". There are some new animations that Google has added in the OS, and the gestures are a permanent feature of the launcher on the Pixel 3 XL. However, it is likely to support at least Full HD resolution.

At the top of Google tablet is the power / unlock button that apparently will integrate a fingerprint reader, there is a pair of stereo speakers and a USB Type-C connector for charging the battery and connecting with other devices. There was one feature in particular, however, that probably should have been mentioned because it's the one Pixel 3 feature that should make every Android fan want the phone.

A recent listing on China's JD.com showed that the Pixel 3 price has been set for CNY 4,999 (roughly Rs. 53,400).
