Google planning mid-tier Pixel phone, will take on OnePlus in India

Google will soon launch new smartphones in its Pixel lineup, expected to be called Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

The images are also accompanied by screenshots seemingly confirming numerous rumoured specs, including the 5.5-inch display.

Were you looking forward to the Pixel Watch becoming a reality this year?

India is the second largest smartphone market in the world.

For instance, /r/GooglePixel moderator Racer_77 stated in the thread that "based on all other leaks and renders seen so far, I personally have enough confidence to say that this is likely the Pixel 3". The mobile telephone will catch a single-lens camera on the reduction, which Google believes it's ample to screech colossal photos, despite the proven truth that competing devices pack two or three lenses on the reduction.

Despite rumors that we would see a Pixel Watch this year, Google has confirmed in an exclusive interview with Tom's Guide and a separate phone call, there will be no Pixel Watch this year.

It is expected that Google will announce the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in October.

The Pixel 3 will be powered by a 2,915mAh battery with wireless charging support. So we know the Pixel 3 will come with a 5.5-inch 2160 x 1080 pixel display having 2:1 aspect ratio.

Xiaomi's sub-brand Poco had earlier launched a feature-rich Poco F1 to take on its Chinese peer OnePlus, which is now ruling the niche premium (above Rs 30,000) smartphone market in India. The rumour mill has, however, been quiet on the Pixel 3. The smartphone is supposed to hold 64GB internal storage that will be running Android 9 Pie on the first boot. Interestingly, the leak claims that the handset features dual 8MP sensors on the front with apertures f/1.8 and f/2.2 respectively.

Prices for top-tier phones have risen as competition in the lower price rungs becomes more saturated with endless releases from budget models from China.
