Google is expected to debut Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones at the beginning of October. The design of these phones is no secret as recent reports have claimed that the Pixel 3 will be sporting an 18:9 display whereas the Pixel 3 XL would be arriving with a notched screen. Today, the Pixel 3 XL has surfaced on Master Lu, a benchmarking platform from China to reveal some of its key specifications.
On Master Lu, the Google Pixel 3 XL has recorded an impressive score of 212,778. The Master Lu listing has revealed that the smartphone features Snapdragon 845 SoC and 4 GB of RAM. Even the Geekbench listing of the Pixel 3 XL smartphone had revealed that it is equipped with the same amount of RAM.
Some of the flagship phones that have launched in the recent past such as OnePlus 6 include 8 GB of RAM. Also, most of other flagship phones have 6 GB of RAM. Hence, Pixel 3 XL with 4 GB appears weaker than the flagship smartphones from rivaling brands. Probably, there could be a higher variant of Pixel with 6 GB of RAM.
The Master Lu listing of the Pixel 3 XL has further revealed that it supports a screen resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels. It means the phone will offer an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 like the notch-less displays found on Samsung Galaxy phones. However, renders of the Pixel 3 XL that have surfaced in the recent past have revealed that it will be equipped with a notched screen. Hence, it appears that the display resolution mentioned on Master Lu suggests that it may not have taken its notch into consideration.
Master Lu has not revealed other information such as battery capacity and storage size of Pixel 3 XL. Recent reports including the case renders of the smartphone have revealed that it will be featuring a single rear camera. The Pixel 2 XL that featured a single camera was able to score 98 points on Dx0Mark. The Pixel 3 XL is expected to deliver stellar photography experience, but it won’t be featuring dual rear cameras like its rivals.
The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are expected to support two-tone design like their predecessor models. It is speculated that the presence of the glass portion on Pixel 3 XL duo will allow them to support wireless charging. Also, the smartphone will deliver an improved Active Edge experience. Both the smartphones are expected to feature dual front-facing cameras and dual speakers.
