Google Pixel 3 Expectations
No Notch Display
Two times, Google has officially given a hint that the next Pixel is going to have a no-notch full-screen bezel-less display. One in June, when Google promoted Google Assistant in one of their videos. And the second time on their withgoogle.com website.
Update: There may be two variants and one of them will have a notch and the other one, without the notch.
Single rear camera
When the upcoming Oneplus 6T is expected to feature three rear-facing cameras, Google may be satisfying itself with only a single camera on Pixel 3. Last year, There was a trend of dual cameras and Google came up with a powerful single camera which beat the competitions until Huawei P20.
Pixel 3XL with a notch
Like Pixel 2 XL, Google is expected to announce a larger Pixel 3 XL. And that may have a notch. How about a waterdrop notch, Google?
No Headphone Jack
Google Pixel 2 didn’t have a headphone jack. And we can expect the same for Pixel 3. In leaked photos, It is shown that Google Pixel 3 will come with USB-C earphones. Audio Jack is really seeing its way out from smartphones as the manufacturers are using the space for larger batteries.
Google is all set to announce the third pixel on 9th Oct’18. We will continue to update this story with the latest news and leaks before the official launch.
