The Google Pixel 3 is still a ways off, but that hasn’t stopped information from leaking out of the firm’s secretive Mountain View HQ. Here’s everything we know about the handset so far, including what new features it will offer and when it will be released.
Big G is working on a total of three new Pixel handsets, according to Droid-Life. They’re codenamed Albacore, Blueline and Crosshatch, with the latter and formed tipped to be premium-tier, while the middle is rumoured to be an expensive high-end model, designed to compete with the iPhone X.
The report cites the same “trusted source” who was behind the leak responsible for uncovering the identity of the Pixel 2 XL, so there’s no real reason to doubt the information. That said – like any rumour – it should be taken with a considerable grain of salt, as nothing’s set in stone.

That’s about all the solid (trust us, we’re using that word loosely) information we’ve stumbled upon pertaining to the Pixel 3, though some rumour-spinners are saying it’ll be equipped with an ultra-tall edge-to-edge screen to put it in a better position to rival Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S9.
Truth be told, Google’s smartphone roadmap for 2018 is reminiscent of Apple’s plan for 2017. It’s working on two high-end smartphones, like the Cupertino firm did with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, and a handset that’s said to push the boundaries (cough, cough, iPhone X, cough).
The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 Xl were announced at a standalone event in October 2017, leading many to believe that Google will hold a gathering around the same time this year to take the wraps off the Pixel 3 – and if that’s the case, we won’t see any sign of it at Mobile World Congress in February.
