With theas the standard bearers of Android’s purest experience, the guys from Google was nearing the end with a high-performance smartphone to that special symbiosis that only Apple gets with their iPhone controlling hardware and software first-hand.
However, Google’s little experience as a manufacturer and its dependence on partners as HTC and LG He sowed doubts around devices that, and that they have left things to improve for the expected Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL that the Californian giant already has in the oven.
It is still early to talk about them, but the interest they awaken is high and the rumor mill is already moving around, withor leaks around ain the new generation Pixel despite the problems of the past.
Today also, in all the North American groups, very juicy leaks are commented, withraising the hare about the agreements Google uses to build and assemble to their new smartphones, among other information …
The American media say that Google already works with two models in the purest style of 2017, which They should be called Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL coming to market next fall releasing Android P as they send the canons. It is said that they would be for sale in October.
In addition, they dare to confirm that one of the two models, the largest, you will opt for an all-screen design with ‘Notch’ in the upper frame, also leaving a small lower edge that they have called “chin” where the panel connectors would be housed. They say the same sources, who have not wanted to be identified, that the design of the Pixel 3 would be similar to the Pixel 2 of 2017 , more classic and without “full view” lines, also opting to eliminate the notch.
In addition, there is already talk of negotiations between Google and Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. for manufacturing and assembly of the two models, a Taiwanese firm that by that name you will not know, but that is none other than a popular Foxconn already in charge of assembling the Apple iPhone.
They say that Google has wanted to become independent of partners external because it already has the necessary technology and engineering after acquiring HTC’s research and development department, about 2,000 workers already integrated into Google’s hardware division and that they have been involved since the beginning in the development of the new Pixel 3.
The giant Mountain View’s objective would be none other than get closer in sales to Samsung and Apple , the two most recognized manufacturers in the industry and that multiply by far the scarce 4 million Pixel devices sold in 2017 .
Google really is going it alone: there are two Google Pixel 3 devices in the works, both based on SDM845. One has “new display hardware”, both are built by Foxconn – not HTC, LG or whomever. Launch timeframe is Aug / Sep 2018.

Obviously the plans can still change, but the sources had a lot of information about the development of Pixel 3 and the courses that Google engineers follow, so it’s good to go collecting.
To begin with, they claim that he ‘Notch’ will not be as big as the one that Apple has implemented in the iPhone X , obviously because those in Cupertino need more space for the hardware that makes Face ID work. Of course, they say that it would be a notch higher and less , maybe looking to get a better game with notifications to the upper sides of the screen.
Android P will natively support designs with ‘Notch’ , so it is expected some additional detail of the software that at the moment is unknown. What is known is that the applications will be adapted to the new design In its whole.
Both terminals will have a hardware heart Snapdragon 845 by Qualcomm , Y the largest of them will mount two front cameras , we assume that to advance with some type of biometric authentication similar to Face ID.
In the back we will only see a camera with improved sensor , but do not be fooled because Google has already amply demonstrated the enormous quality of the unique sensor of its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, so it’s expect them to remain as photographic references of the Adroid platform.
Finally, we talk about the enormous effort of Google in Improve interaction with your Pixel 3 , that thanks to artificial intelligence will be more intuitive, they will learn more and better from us, and they will allow many functions without touching the smartphone , just asking for it with the voice.
We will have to remain vigilant, because although there is still time the media machine does not stop and we will surely see more and better leaks on the next smartphones ‘made by Google’. What do you expect from the Pixel 3?
