The Google Pixel 3 is now listed on the JD.com, a retailer site from China. The handset has appeared with a price tag of 4,999 Yuan (~$729). It is not the actual pricing of the Pixel 3 as the handset is yet to go official. The listing also contains some renders of the smartphone.
The renders showcase the design of both Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. However, these photos are just modified version of the renders that were created by popular tipster @OnLeaks. It is not surprising to see an unannounced phone on a retailer site. However, what’s interesting about the Pixel 3 listing on JD is that Google has never released its Pixel phones in China. Since Google is blocked in China, neither the Nexus phones nor the Pixel series were made available in the country. The JD listing of Pixel 3 suggests that the search engine could be planning to enter China again. However, there is no official confirmation on it yet.
The Google Pixel 3 JD listing had carried the pricing of the smartphone. However, the listing has been updated as it only contains the renders of the phone at present. Rumors surrounding the Pixel 3 have revealed that the handset will be arriving with a 5.4-inch display that will support Full HD+ resolution and 18:9. The Snapdragon 845 SoC is expected to power the phone along with 4 GB of RAM. It is expected to come loaded with Android 9 Pie.
The back panel of the Google Pixel 3 is rumored to feature a single camera of 12-megapixel. The front panel of the phone is tipped to be equipped with 8-megapixel dual selfie snappers. The exact size of the battery of the Pixel 3 is not known yet. The handset is rumored to hit the market in 64 GB and 128 GB storage models.
Google has recently confirmed that it will be holding a launch event on Oct. 9 in New York City to announce the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. It is speculated that the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones may respectively cost $649 and $749.
