Google recently came up with two new models of Pixel. The announcement about launching Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL was made by Google on its global event that took place recently. Both of the phones are powered by artificial intelligence, better software and hardware for an improved personal experience of the customers.
While Pixel 3 is 5.5 inches, Pixel 3 XL is 6.3 inches in size. Not Pink, Just Black and Clearly White are the three colours of these smartphones. The phones have the two-tone design of Pixel series, which ensures that the back covers of the smartphones are made of glass. Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have security chip known as Titan M, which makes it the most secure smartphone Google ever built. Both the phones are dust and water resistant as well.
Brilliant photos every time and super-charged selfies
We’re taking more photos on our phones than ever before, but we still often miss the perfect moment. Pixel 3 helps you get that perfect shot on the first try. Here’s how the best camera gets even better with Pixel 3:
- Capture smiles, not blinks: A feature called Top Shot uses AI to help you capture the perfect photo every time. When you take a photo, it analyzes the images just before and just after you press the shutter, looking for those where everyone is smiling, with eyes open, and facing the camera. If there is a better shot, the camera will give you the option to save it.
- Get better zoom: When you zoom in using a phone camera, the image generally looks grainy. Super Res Zoom is a computational photography technique, traditionally used for astronomy and scientific imaging, that produces sharp details even when zooming into the subject.
- No light; no problem: Pixel 3 lets you take natural-looking photos in dark surroundings, all without a flash. With Night Sight, you can take bright, detailed, colorful shots around the campfire, in a moonlit forest, or a selfie as you’re headed out of that dimly-lit club (coming soon).
- No selfie stick required: Get everyone in the picture with Group Selfie, which gives you 184% more room in your selfie shots, be it with a large group of friends or an expansive backdrop
Unlimited storage for all of your photos and videos
Once again, you can save all your favorite moments with free, unlimited photo and video storage in the original resolution. It’s hassle-free, you don’t have to think about back-ups. Come back to Google Photos later and search for the beach photos you took on your Pixel 3, and they’ll pop right up.
Your AI-powered sidekick
The AI in Pixel 3 enables new features that make your day-to-day actions simpler and easier.
If you want to know more about something you’re looking at, use Google Lens, built right into your Pixel 3. To scan and translate text, find similar styles of clothing, or identify popular plants and animals, you can now long press in the Pixel 3 camera to easily invoke Lens. When you point your camera at information you want to remember or don’t feel like typing in—like a URL or QR code on a flyer or an email on a business card—Google Lens suggests what to do next, like calling a number, going to the website, or creating a new contact.
The Google Assistant is also baked into Pixel 3 to help you find answers and control your phone and compatible smart home devices—all with a simple squeeze or just by using your voice.
Many of the new AI-powered features on Pixel, including camera features like Top Shot, Photobooth, and Lens suggestions, are processed on-device. AI on-device means these experiences are fast, private to you, and use up less battery.
That’s not all — this year you can also count on even more assistance across apps, including Gmail’s Smart Compose, now available for mobile on Pixel 3. Smart Compose suggests phrases in your emails so that you can draft them faster, on the go. Gboard, the keyboard built into your Pixel 3, will recommend GIFs, stickers, and more, to make your conversations fun and engaging.
Our phones, while probably the most important tech in our lives, shouldn’t control our lives. So Digital Wellbeing, a suite of tools to help you find your own balance with technology, is built into Pixel 3. It includes a dashboard to help you understand how you spend time on your phone, the ability to set time limits on specific apps, and a new Wind Down mode to help you get to sleep at night by gently transitioning your display to a grayscale screen. When you don’t want to be bothered by rings or notifications, use Flip to Shhh— an easy gesture that turns on Do Not Disturb and minimizes distractions.
