Google took to the stage unveiling their much-leaked Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones today in New York City. Thanks to all of the leaks we were already aware of almost everything there is to know about both of these phones.
A Little About the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL
In case you’re in need of a refresher the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are both packing a Snapdragon 845, 4GB of RAM, come with either 64GB or 128GB of storage, include a 12MP rear camera with dual 8MP cameras on the front, and are launching with Android 9 Pie.
Where the two phones differ comes down mostly to the size of the screen and battery. The Pixel 3 offers a 5.5-inch display with stereo front-facing speakers. While the Pixel 3 XL has a larger 6.2-inch display with an obnoxiously large notch but also includes stereo front-facing speakers. Due to the size difference between the screens, it is only natural the Pixel 3 contains a smaller 2915mAh battery and the Pixel 3 XL features a larger 3430mAh battery.
