Google teases the Pixel 3 without giving much away
16 September, 2018, 01:24
The company is expected to introduce a bunch of new hardware, including new Pixel phones and potential new Chromebooks at the event.
Google seems to be prepping three of those (how fitting for the Pixel 3, right?). The third teaser shows an aquamarine-coloured frame, which hints at the arrival of a Green coloured Pixel 3 smartphone.
Last year's Pixel 2 came in black, white, and a pale "kinda blue" shade. The new Aqua or Mint colour option is different from what Google has offered so far.
Google's Pixel team wrote on Reddit Thursday that an internal test "was mistakenly rolled out to more users than intended". The big change could be the presence of notch on the bigger Pixel 3 XL, while Pixel 3 will have a smaller display without notch.
We are less than a month away from Google's official hardware event in October. While we have seen a ton of leaks regarding the two devices, it looks like Google is starting its campaign to drum up interest, starting a teaser website for the smartphones. When we signed up, the page told flashes this message, "Subscribed!" You can cycle through the colors by pressing the "G" logo at the bottom of the phone. "Check back for more on October 9th". And remember, we expect a glass back this time that should feature wireless charging. How Google improves on the cameras of the Pixel 3 is something that will be closely watched.
