Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL REVEALED: UK release, price and specs detailed

You might already have reserved a new Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL.

The Pixel 3 is poised to compete head-to-head with the best phones on the market, and Google is putting its strongest feature - artificial intelligence - front and center. The two phones will once again be separated by screen size, with the smaller one likely getting a 5.5-inch display and the larger one possibly getting a 6.7-inch one, when accounting for the space around the notch. On the rear is an all-glass back with a two-tone gloss and matte finish, doing away with the odd glossy block that was present on previous Pixel devices. A feature called Top Shot uses AI to help you capture the flawless photo every time. If there is a better shot, the camera will give you the option to save it. Super Res Zoom is a computational photography technique, traditionally used for astronomy and scientific imaging, that produces sharp details even when zooming into the subject.

The Pixel 3 has a 2915mAh battery and the Pixel 3 XL has a 3450mAh battery. But this new feature goes further, letting you get more information before you pick up a call from a questionable number. Photobooth mode uses AI to recognise that when you're smiling or making a amusing expression, you're ready for a selfie. You should also note that the buy-one-get-one applies only to the base Pixel 3, which has 64GB of storage.

The bezels are fairly thin (for a tablet anyway), but still big enough for dual front-facing speakers and for resting your thumbs. Both lenses are 8MP, but there's an f/2.2 wide-angle one and an f/1.8 telephoto, making it more versatile and helping you fit more in shots. It's hassle-free, you don't have to think about back-ups.

The AI in Pixel 3 enables new features that make your day-to-day actions simpler and easier.

Google doesn't disclose its phone shipments, unlike Apple, which has sold about 388 million iPhones since the first Pixel came out in October 2016.

At the Pixel 3 press launch Tuesday, the company unveiled a new feature for its flagship smartphone that aims to make that most annoying of moments just slightly less so.

Last year's Pixel 2 arrived with bugs that prompted user complaints about unwanted noises during calls, a crashing camera app and an unexpected screen tint. (This uses a version of the software Google put into a stand-alone AI camera called Clips.) That's useful for selfies -- you don't have to awkwardly press the shutter. Last year's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smashed what camera phones could do and, despite competitors attempts, it's only recently been dethroned by the likes of the Huawei P20 Pro in that respect. Google has added characters like Hulk and Iron Man from the Marvel Studios universe, and later this year you'll get a Childish Gambino character to dance with thanks to a collaboration between Google and Donald Glover.

However, both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL do not come cheap. But if youre going to buy a Pixel 3 or 3 XL, you might want to just grab the Pixel Stand instead – thats Googles official wireless charger. And there's also Flip to Shhh, which will mute notifications if you set the phone screen down. Titan M enhances mobile security behind the scenes by protecting your unlock credentials, disk encryption, app data, and the integrity of the operating system code itself. The new Pixel 3 models run Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box and are powered by a Snapdragon 845 SoC for blazing fast performance. There's 4GB of RAM and it comes with 64GB or 128GB of storage.

The final addition to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL's arsenal is the introduction of the Pixel Stand.
