New Pixel 3 photos show battery specs and variable aperture front camera

Pixel 3 leaked

Pixel 3 leaked

The first alleged images of the handset hit Reddit today, giving us a close look at the device.

The phone in the images is the black variant of the Pixel range, a nice change from the Clearly White variant we've seen on the larger Pixel 3 XL leaks. Now it's time for the regular, non-XL 2018 Pixel to smile for the camera, thanks to these recently leaked photos.

The phone doesn't appear to be running the stock Pixel launcher in the above screenshot, though does have the Pixel gesture "Pill" in the screenshots taken of the specs.

The technical reports on the FCC website and E-label do not offer much in the way of new information but do reveal model numbers for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. We're seeing the familiar glass top part of the back, and yes, there is no notch on the front, but we already knew that. It's also widely expected that the devices will have the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processors, accompanied by 4GB of RAM. Meanwhile, Google's "G" moniker and a fingerprint scanner are present at the back. The second camera, also an 8-megapixel sensor, only has a single aperture, f/1.8.

According to one of the screenshots, the Pixel 3 XL has a 2160x1080 resolution (2:1 aspect ratio) with a 60Hz refresh rate, 440dpi pixel density, and HDR support.

The Google Pixel 2 was G011A and the Pixel 2 XL was G011C, so it seems to line up perfectly.

The sad news is that it looks like we'll be waiting a bit longer before we get to see what Google thinks the "perfect" smartwatch is.
