By
October 9, 2018

As we saw throughout the last several months, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL specs aren’t all that impressive. Looking almost identical to last year’s flagships, the internal specs of both handsets don’t stand out when compared to other 2018 flagships.

Starting around front, the smaller Pixel 3 features a 5.5-inch P-OLED screen with a 1,080 x 2,160 resolution while the larger Pixel 3 XL sports a 1,440 x 2,960 resolution 6.3-inch P-OLED display. And while the latter of the two does feature a notch, both phones retain the stereo front-facing speakers.

Just like with previous Pixel handsets, both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are almost identical spec-wise. So as far as cameras are concerned, around front, this means that the pair of smartphones each feature dual 8MP sensors (one standard f/1.8 shooter and one wide-angle f/2.2 snapper). These sensors allow the Pixels to take wide-angle selfies and handle better depth sensing. Around back, both handsets will utilize a single 12.2MP f/1.8 sensor.

Inside, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL specs include a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of built-in storage. The smaller of the two will come with a 2,915mAh battery while the larger model is powered by a 3,430mAh battery.

Additional specs include IP68 water and dust resistance, Android 9 Pie, wireless charging, and the pressure-sensitive Active Edge.
