Since Google controls both the software and hardware of Pixel handsets, it could tightly integrate the two to offer maximum battery life. Google Pixel 3 leaks are beginning to gather pace, and we're analyzing each one as it comes in and updating this article to keep you in the know.

The smartphone may also be aimed towards people who want to upgrade their devices from the Oppo and Vivo, which mainly play in the Rs 20,000-Rs 30,000 space in India, the report suggests. Google is set to announce the Pixel devices soon.

India is the second largest smartphone market in the world. However, there hadn't been much chatter about the smaller Pixel 3, until now. While the details of Pixel 3 XL have been leaking from all corners of the Internet, the Pixel 3 has largely been missing from the leaks.

We have already seen several Google Pixel 3XL leaks. Ahead of the rumoured October 9th launch date, few hands-on images of the alleged Pixel 3 have surfaced on the interwebs, giving us a glimpse at the phone's design and specifications. Since the Pixel 3 has a full-glass back we believe it will also support wireless charging.

As per the leak, the Google Pixel 3 will feature a dual camera setup at the front consisting a 8.1-megapixel primary camera with f/1.8 aperture and a secondary 8.1-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture and a wide angle lens. This year, these two are expected to make a new-and-improved return, with the XL said to have a better screen than the regular version.

Notably, Russian blog Rozetked claims to have gotten its hands on an actual 3 XL unit that Google, um, misplaced. The smartphone is supposed to hold 64GB internal storage that will be running Android 9 Pie on the first boot.

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.
