Google Pixel 3 leak gives details about the smaller flagship inside and out

Although we have had enough chances to view the larger Google Pixel 3 XL in recent months, we finally see what is likely to be Google's smaller Pixel 3 flagship.

The leaked photos and screenshots come from an anonymous Reddit user whose account has since been removed, so the veracity of the leaks must be taken with a pinch of salt.

Given the current number of new Pixel leaks and rumors, chances are that we have received a reasonably accurate description of the smaller device.

For example, / r / GooglePixel moderator Racer_77 listed in the wire that "based on all the other leaks and views seen so far, I personally have enough confidence to say that this is probably the Pixel 3."

Recognizable faces

The three images taken by the Reddit user of the device give us a pretty good picture of the upcoming Pixel 3. The back of the device is very similar to the current Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL design with their camera and fingerprint scanner with one lens, albeit with a curved boundary between the glass and aluminum sections.

Likewise, the side of the phone is nothing special or surprising – with a volume button and an on / off button as we are used to and a slightly more rounded side profile in general.

The screen of the handset is similar to the Pixel 2 XL, but smaller, with much thinner edges than the existing Google Pixel 2, and rounded corners on the screen that match the curvature of the handset itself, just like the 2 XL.

Although it is a bit difficult to distinguish, the image of the phone's face also appears to show off two cameras on the front. This is supported by the screenshots of the specifications that contain two 8MP cameras: one with a double aperture of f / 1.8 and f / 2.2 and the other with f / 1.8.

It is what is in it that counts

If this leak is indeed correct, the screengrabs show a large amount of nitty-gritty when it comes to the inner workings of Google's next flagship.

Assuming that this is true, the Pixel 3 will have a 2,915mAh battery, slightly better than the 2.700mAh capacity of the Pixel 2. The display will also be increased from 5.0 to 5.5-inch, thus increasing the aspect ratio is increased from 16: 9 to 18: 9 (or 2: 1).

Although the slimmer edges allow for a larger screen, the resolution of 1,080 x 2,160 maintains the same 440ppi density as the Pixel 2. As mentioned earlier, the specifications also seem to confirm a dual front camera that was previously speculated to 3D support facial recognition.

Although we can not know for sure if this is actually a legitimate Pixel 3 and if the specifications in the screenshots are correct, the chances are pretty good at the moment. For complete peace of mind, however, we will have to wait for the likely October announcement from Google itself.
