Pixel 3 may have wireless charging and Active Edge may return

08 June 2018
The Pixel 2’s squeezable frame feature for accessing Google Assistant is evidently coming back for the Pixel 3 – also, maybe wireless charging.

Geric.770, 09 Jun 2018Display- Fugly The rest? Pure awesomeness.What you know about phone design? I am not a fan of PIXEL, I personally had Samsung J7 Pro, Nova 2i, and a Huawei/Honor 9. But what you exactly on a phone where the current design is a piece of glass slab? Like really? Can't you just focus on the way the device performs and not the design, although ergonomics is essential. This type of comments really just sums up that all these people want is to brag the looks at their device and not actually how it performs.

do not look down on removable battery feature.

1. There are ways to achieve IP rating with removable cover.. see other old IP rating phones.
2. Change battery when old.
3. Higher capacity batteries.
4. Ability to gain wireless charging, even if manufacturers do not add it.
5. Do not need casing. Just screen protector. any scratches just change backcover.

Wireless charging is useless for 95% of users! Better trying to fit a higher mAh capacity battery. Better yet proper facial unlock like the iPhone x /Mi 8 . If you're going to have a notch it may as well be used properly unlike my OnePlus 6 which is to fit bigger screen size, yet that extra screen space is basically a waste of time/space being unused.

Here is hoping the smaller 3 has slim bezel unlike 2 plus a smoother front glass to metal back transition. Liking the clean simplicity of the back. No doubt camera will be great. Otherwise keeping eye on pending Nokia flagship.

Thingi may have this, or it may have that. If we're lucky, it may have this AND that! Ooh!
But it could just be insider hearsay to boost someones stock portfolio, or hits on their rumour website. We'll all know when the phat phone sings!

Why is gogl so mysterious about pixel3 Design pics?

Lets see it!

Anonymous, 09 Jun 2018Big deal. Initially, I thought your comment was satirical... and now I am not sure. For some this might be a great news story, for others not so much.

It’s time to loose elsewhere. How a company can make everything wrong in same device, I was complaining about Xperia and how horrible the new XZP2 is but for f**k sake why google ?
Pixel XL and Pixel 2 XL were my main phones and I was really looking forward to Pixel 3 XL. But thank you google a really ugly notch, no headphone jack and last shot a single camera setup.
Hopefully Note 9 won’t be so disappointing so I’ll go for note 9.

First apple had no removable battery.. than HTC and Sony sealed it.. so OK I'll buy Sammy. Then Sammy sealed it.. OK I'll buy LG.. lg sealed the battery..


Now I'm stick

I bet Samsung will remove the jack next, followed by lg and one plus.. once everyone will forget again how we got screwed.
