Little by little we are approaching the month of October, in which For the third year in a row, a certain Mountain View company will unleash its hardware division to introduce a new family of devices made by Google . From this new generation of pottery created by the big G you expect aand of course, the third generation of Pixel phones.
And we will talk about smartphones today. With the, Google has finally established itself as a phone manufacturer worthy of taking into account, with terminals that stand at the top of the podium of mobile telephony –, Y It is undeniable that the new devices have become the most anticipated of the year by enthusiasts of the operating system of the green android.
Therefore, as a user of a Pixel 2 XL from the day 1 , having lived together with their few defects and many virtues, today I want to throw a series of ideas to the wish list of the Pixel 3 , with some – but not all – the news that I would like to see in the third generation of phones made by Google once they are presented in October.
Does anyone remember the 5-inch Pixel 2? It’s funny to see how a phone that was meant to fulfill the wishes of lovers of compact phones,-not even appear on the cover of the- due, among other things, to the enormous differences at the aesthetic level with the larger model.
With the first generation of Pixel, Google launched two devices exactly the same, whose only visual difference we found in the size. This changed alarmingly in the second edition, when we saw that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL seemed totally different phones -It could have something to do with the choice of different brands to make them.
And is that the huge screen frames of the Pixel 2 are not the only difference with respect to the larger model. The position of the rear camera and the flash is different, and even the subtle curvature that joins the screen with the aluminum chassis in the Pixel 2 XL, becomes a beveled aluminum edge much less pleasant to the touch in the reduced model. In the end, it is these small discrepancies that push the Pixel 2 one step below the 6-inch model, when the goal of Google should be to create two comparable terminals, and leave the lower positions for devices of lower category, such as
One of my biggest concerns with the Pixel 3, is that Google decides to completely discard the characteristic style of its terminals , to join the market trends and create a Pixel 3 with a glass body and a notch on the screen. Neither the Pixel 1 nor the Pixel 2 could have the best design on the market, but it is undeniable that they were totally recognizable devices, especially thanks to the special color variants such as the “Really Blue” model of the first generation, or the Pixel 2 XL “Black and White” with its orange button.
Therefore, from my point of view Google should stick to the lines it has been working on for the last two years, and continue to refine this style until it is totally unique , thus achieving that its terminals are completely unmarked from the rest of clones that nowadays flood the telephone industry. And please, do not have notch.
This point may be somewhat at odds with the previous one. At the end of the day, if Google decides to maintain the design lines of the first two generations, it will not be easy for incorporate wireless charging due to the aluminum chassis, which prevents charging through induction.
Nevertheless, the window of glass from the back , used to improve wireless signal reception and host the camera, and be extended to cover the entire middle of the rear panel, thus enabling wireless charging. I also do not see it unreasonable that Google could opt for combine the glass at the top, with a plastic chassis that allows loading through a base. Or, the most obvious option: opt for a body made entirely of glass , that in spite of being less resistant that the plastic covered aluminum of the Pixel 2, would be suitable to incorporate technology Qi.
Either way, Google should find a way to incorporate this technology in their Pixel 3 , especially after Apple got on the car, and the arrival of more and more devices compatible with the Qi standard. I would not say no to a wireless charging base designed by Google to combine with the new phones.
If with a single camera the Pixel 2 have been able to maintain the leadership in terms of mobile photography until this point of 2018, I do not want to imagine what Google will be able to do with two rear sensors in their Pixel 3 relying on computational photography systems owned by the company.
In fact, I do not even see the need for Pixels 3 to incorporate a secondary sensor taking into account what has been achieved with the current generation. Even so, the inclusion of the Dual Camera API in Android P gives us some clues about what is coming to the Pixel family .
I have no idea what Google’s strategy will be at the photographic level with its upcoming terminals. The only thing I hope that the main trick of the Pixel 3 is still photography , combining hardware and software to end up creating, once again, the phone with the best camera on the market, and that in case of incorporating a second rear sensor, this really useful contribution to our experience as users.
Finally, I just hope that the new generation of Pixel devices continue to be flooded with the small details that make Google phones special . With the Pixel 2 debuted options such as Now Playing, stickers in augmented reality, Active Edge and many other small details that, although many times you forget that they are there, every time you need them remember why you decided to buy a Pixel.
These are 5 of the things that I would like to see in the next Google Pixel 3, which should see the light at the beginning of October. Now, as always, we want to know your opinion :
What do you expect from the Pixel 3?
