Tech titan Google has introduced the new Pixel 3 (and Pixel 3 XL) smartphone, which comes bolstered by the latest advancements in AI. Available in three different colours (Just Black, Clearly White, and Not Pink), this gadget promises to deliver a new tier of performance in virtually every department, with a camera setup that’s pretty much thought of everything. Throw in unlimited online storage for videos and pictures, as well as built-in Google Assistant, and the Pixel 3 puts a world of possibility at your fingertips. Literally.
Cameras are the perennial craze among smartphone users, and Google certainly didn’t slouch in that department. Specifically, the Pixel 3 will host a Group Selfie feature, better zoom, adaptive Night Sight for automatic adjustment to dimness or light, self-snapping capability for candid shots, Portrait Mode, and Top Shot AI, the latter of which captures a string of consecutive shots, then recommends the best one. Also included is Playground, where you can add all sorts of extra graphics (including Marvel superheroes) and captions to your pictures.
As if all that wasn’t enough, Pixel 3 will include Motion Auto Focus and front-facing video stabilisation, which collectively result in some smooth videos, indeed. Meanwhile, Google Lens packs in some AI-powered intelligence, doing everything from translating texts to creating contacts to identifying objects. All you need to do is point and tap.
How does unlimited online storage for your photos and videos sound? Good? Well, with the Pixel 3 at your disposal, you get free unlimited storage until the year 2022, after which additional rates may apply. That’s all joined by quick charging, IP68 water resistance, advanced security, and built-in Google Assistant. Buy a separate Pixel Stand and the charging isn’t just quick, it’s also wireless. Or just stick with the phone–totally up to you.
You can place a pre-order now and expect your Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL to ship by 1 November. Otherwise, look for it on the shelf come November, at Optus, Telstra, Vodafone, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and the Google Store.
