All the Pixel 3 Features Coming to the Pixel 2

Pixel Slate

Presented on October 9 in NY Google Pixel 3 XL has received a rating of A+, and the title of victor of the best display among smartphones. "When you get an incoming call from an unknown caller, just tap "Screen call" to let the Google Assistant help out".

It's huge. It's gaping.

Going by the product specs, the Gamevice Pixel 3 XL device pulls power from the phone rather than relying on an internal battery. But in general, the phone is not that outstanding and one can point to a lack of truly unique features compared with other Android phones from key brands like Samsung, Huawei, LG and Xiaomi. The new Pixel phones are expected to follow the trend of expanding the phone screen almost to the edges of the device.

In terms of design, both phones employ a metal frame with glass fronts and backs - these are required to enable wireless charging. This new Pixel 3 feature will come to both the original Pixel and Pixel 2 phones "in the coming weeks".

The Google Pixel 3 launcher is now available as an APK. Coupled with HDR+ capability, a feature called Top Shot captures a sequence of images, then checks them all and recommends the best one that has all your subjects smiling, facing the camera and not blinking.

So, this year's installments of #MadebyGoogle devices, or should we call them 2018's most leaked smartphone of the year, are officially out.

While Pixel 3 boasts the same high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor as other flagship phones of this generation, one of the disappointments on paper is the standard 4 GB of RAM.

Both phones still come with a single-lens rear camera system, but it doesn't sound like Google needs more than one lens. Another awesome feature is that Top shot will select from the multiple pictures in which the everyone is looking at the camera in the group photo. This new feature, like many others, uses Google's efforts in machine learning to predict what you want, need, or should say while replying or typing an email.

Human West Nile Virus case reported in Tolono

I'm an unapologetic Android purist - I like Android when it's vanilla and done properly, the way Google intended.

You can download the Google Camera 6.1 APK right here. Essential's PH-1 phone may have the best notch out there because it's so tiny followed by the Huawei P20 line. This feature is coming later in October. Additionally, a new RAW+JPEG option will show up in camera settings.

Here's a photo of a typical test location. Pixel 2 had the most fantastic portrait feature and with coveted bokeh background colour. Either way, Google has ensured that the old Pixel phones will also get new features.

Motion Focus is a feature baked into the new Pixel cameras, it figures out what your subject is and keeps track of it.

Well, Google doesn't bother with two cameras on its Pixel smartphones because the company doesn't think they are needed. RIP the Kinda Blue Pixel 2 finish - we'll miss you.
