Google Pixel 3 XL Is Already Selling In Hong Kong Before Launch

Be the first to get your hands on Google's newest phone, because the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are available to pre-order now at the Google Store! The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are complimented with the OLED displays. 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. Because Android highlights Google services, it's key to Google's business of selling ads through its search engine and other mobile apps.

The Pixel 3 is the smaller of the two devices, with a display that measures 5.5-inches. Assistant shows an overview of your day, calendar alerts and more. It is already available in the United States at consumer electronics retailer stores BestBuy.

Google's new premium phones also focus on futuristic technologies like Augmented Reality (AR). We expect no new front-facing features here and the superior Chromecast Ultra to stick around. The Playmoji will soon have characters from Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But that's the software bit.

Google exposed data for hundreds of thousands of users
Instead, it's due to Google uncovering a major security vulnerability that exposed the information of up to 500,000 accounts. It says it discovered the breach during a review this year of this type of third-party data access.

Despite the fact that Verizon continues to be Google's only wireless carrier partner for its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones, plenty of Android fans will buy them unlocked directly from Google. Though there are some improvements in the camera department as well. Google is teasing that theory with a new video out today, which ties together a couple prominent YouTubers saying that everything about the Pixel 3 XL has already leaked, and nothing interesting is going to happen. It comes with the IP68 dust as well as water resistance. Google has come up with dual selfie cameras on the Pixel 3 with 8MP sensors each, while the Pixel 2 had a single 8MP front-facing camera. The phone comes with 64/128GB storage. With the Pixel 3, Google is also introducing wireless charging with 10W fast charging.

The price for the new Google Pixel 3 starts from Rs 71,000 for the entry level variant with 64GB ROM whereas the 128GB version of Pixel 3 costs Rs 80,000. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL feature a 12.2MP rear shooter with 1.4um large pixel, f/1.8 aperture, and OIS.

The review - in Russian with English subtitles - shows the device in full with little left to the imagination. It will have a 2915 mAh battery. The feature will be coming to the Pixel 3 and other Pixel devices next month.

The company spent plenty of time during its press conference in New York City on Tuesday detailing the many exciting new software features packed into its new phones, but Google obviously didn't have time to cover everything during its 90 minute presentation. The accessories included in the smartphones's box are: a USB Type-C cable, USB-C to USB-A adapter, USB Type-C earphones, wall charger and the device itself.
