Oops: Did Google Just Reveal Pixel 3 Notch Feature?

The notch may be spotted in Google Pixel 3.

Oops: Did Google Just Reveal Pixel 3 Notch Feature?

Right after releasing Android P public beta at the I/O 2018, Google has left some traces of iPhone X-like “Notch” feature. As first spotted by Android Police, Google will be sporting a notch in its upcoming Pixel 3 device. As some reports are suggesting, there are some updations made in Android P to make it sync with the notch feature. 

Notch is a popular design element, which was first adopted by the Essential Phone. But since its inception in the iPhone X, its popularity has skyrocketed. This feature helps to cramp some extra space near the front camera and can turn into a notification bar. The end result makes the screen looks a bit grown-up.

Interestingly, Apple reportedly is planning to discard the notch feature from all of its future models due to unknown reason. Now, this would make it more arduous for Android phone manufacturers to simply follow Apple’s suit.

As already exposed by Android P user interface, Pixel 3 is seen with just four notification dots at the top bar, whereas Android O could show seven status bar notifications. The left side of the status bar is occupied by the clock and notifications, whereas, the right side is filled with battery and Wifi status icons. It leaves some space for notch in-between the display. But if you think the space after the notification dots is the waste space, you might be doubting on Google’s ability to make the most out of its device.

Google Pixel 3 Rumours

To bring its new device into notice, Google confirmed the name of its next smartphone as Android Open Source Project (AOSP), which is most probably Pixel 3. If we believe some reports, Google Pixel 3 will come up with three variants as “albacore”, “blueline”, and “crosshatch”.

In yet another attempt, Android seems to copy iPhone X gesture controls and it will be Android P that would be adjusted for this new addition. And with Android P around the corner, Google would surely toss something that will put it in the same league as of iPhone X.

Google Pixel 3 price and availability

In the setting up the price, Google Pixel 3 will linger around the same price as that of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL. But with some new inclusions, the overall cost can race a bit. If we follow the release date of Pixel 2, which was rolled out on  October 4 last year, Google Pixel 3 may be launched in the first week of October.

As the confirmation of Pixel 3 is already ripe, assuming Google to test its latest operating system on its next flagship device will be fair enough. Furthermore, to talk about face recognition feature at this stage is like a half-baked cookie but, we can expect it out of the rivalry.

However, don’t get too excited, the change in the status bar of Google Pixel 3 can be an attempt from Android side to experiment something different. Till the release of Android P, just hold your breath and hope for some top-notch features in the new offering.
