Google brings Pixel 3 XL, the phone with AI and two cameras

Pixel 3 XL

The new Pixel 3 XL is a renewal with a focus on the artificial intelligence of the cameras

Google has introduced the third generation of its largest smartphone, the new Google Pixel 3 XL, in an event where virtually everything the company announced, had already been leaked weeks ago.

The new Google Pixel 3 XL is an update that has been considered one of the best photographic mobiles. Knowingly, Google has not touched much of the mobile but has improved especially the artificial intelligence of the camera.

As for technical features, nobody expected big changes and Google accepts that in 2018 little can be done against the struggle of the notch. The dreaded and huge eyebrow arrives at the Pixel 3 XL, where it hides not one, but two cameras for selfies. It is inside a large 6.3-inch OLED screen that reaches a resolution of 1,440 × 2960 pixels. 

Inside there is a Snapdragon 845 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of internal memory not expandable, a battery of 3,430mAh, wireless charging and USB-C connection that serves both for battery charging, data exchange and use with the new Pixel Buds headphones.

Google Pixel 3, 3 XL and more: follow today’s presentation

After the events of Samsung and Apple is the turn of Google, which has chosen today, October 9, to publicize its new hardware products. Among them, of course, the expected Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL phones. From Xataka we will attend the conference and we will tell you, minute by minute, everything that is announced: you can follow it with us and in a video on our direct page and through our Twitter account. Take note of the scheduled schedule:

17.00 Spain 
10.00 Mexico, Ecuador, Colombia 
11.00 Venezuela, Cuba 
12.00 Chile, Argentina 

Three cameras, but two are for selfies

Unlike the entire mobile industry Pixel, 3 XL includes two front and one rear camera.
On the front, there are two cameras of 8.2 megapixels f / 2.2 where one of them uses a wide-angle lens to get more people into your selfies. As a curious fact, one of them is used as a depth sensor for selfies with portrait effect, something that the front camera will not have.

Google does not care that virtually any high-end smartphone uses two or three cameras in the back. The company defends itself with a 12.2-megapixel f / 1.8 camera, but it has many artificial intelligence tricks. In addition to improving the portrait effect that IA uses to identify what is trying to stand out, it maintains elements such as Google Lens, which identifies who is being photographed.

The new tricks of the Pixel 3 XL camera are “Top Shot”, a function that takes several pictures before and after the main shot so that afterward you can automatically choose the best one. In this way, you can create animations, a function very similar to the one that Apple introduced with the “Live Photos”.

The mobile will also be able to automatically focus on people or objects that are being photographed, preventing you from having to press the screen to refocus as they move. According to the leaks, this could be the appearance of the new Google Pixel 3 XL. Yes, the notch arrives

After the numerous leaks of recent weeks, it seems that there is something almost 100% confirmed: we will have new Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL. Two phones of which, in addition, it seems that we already know almost everything. For example, rumors suggest that the new models will ignore the audio jack and that they will be added to the fashion of the notch in the case of the XL model (the standard model will remain, it seems, with the traditional upper and lower frames).
