Flagship smartphones Google Pixel and Pixel XL – certainly one of the most interesting devices in 2016-2017. Novelties were presented not so long ago, in October last year. But time is running out and Google is preparing a flagship smartphone Pixel 2. Now, there is news that it is planning the third flagship of the series: Google Pixel 3. Confirming this fact – a lot of rumors and leaks with photos of the device’s body. In this article we will collect all the rumors together and tell you what will be the flagship of Google Pixel 3.
Senior vice president of Google for devices and gadgets Rick Osterloh confirmed that Pixel 2 will be released in the second half of 2017. His direct quote: “In this industry everything is cyclical with a period of one year, so you can count on the receiver’s announcement from us this year.” The employee of the company also said that the flagship Pixel 2 will retain its former value. We are expecting the same news soon from him about Google Pixel 3.The upgrade program is somewhat reminiscent of Apple’s strategy when the new iPhone costs as much as the previous iPhone, but it has improved features.
Also, you should not lose sight of the fact that the Google I / O conference will be officially held May 2018. During this time, the search giant is likely to submit a preliminary version of Android for developers. It is on Android 9 and will work Pixel 3 and possibly Pixel 3 XL. It is worth recalling that the current generation of smartphones Google Pixel was publicized at a special event on October 5, 2016 and went on sale on October 20. We expect a similar release date for the start of sales for Google Pixel 3 in 2018.
Google Pixel 3 will be available in autumn
Although Google does not draw any parallels between Pixel and Nexus, the company’s production schedule, according to observations, remains the same. Releases of Google phones and the first generation of “pixels” occurred closer to the middle of autumn, which means that new devices should appear around October.
Google Pixel 3 will be expensive
In addition to the announcement of the release of new Google smartphone this year, Rick Osterloh told about the pricing policy of the company. He said the following: “Pixel remains premium.” Pixel 3 will be more expensive considering his statement.
However, the representative of the top management of Google spoke exclusively about the line of Pixel, and therefore the hope for a more affordable Google Pixel 3 remains. Perhaps, the company will release it under a different brand.
