Processor and Internal software
Both the smartphone models whether Google Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL will run on the latest Android software which is Android 9.0 Pie. Also, they both will come equipped with the Qualcomm’s top-of-the-line processor Snapdragon 845 SoC to enhance the user-experience manifold with fast processing and excellent ease of use. The Google Pixel 3 has an internal memory of 4 GB while its elder version will be powered with 6 GB of internal space.
Smartphone Display and overall design
According to various rumors and leaked information, it has been revealed already that Pixel 3 will have 5.5-inch display whereas the Pixel 3 XL will be seen having a 6.7-inch display that calls for taller aspect ratios and shorter bevel. It must be noted that Pixel 3 XL will have a big notch perhaps, its younger sibling will lack it. This will not only improve the screen-to-body ratio of the smartphones owing to the smaller bevels but also pave a way to a clean finish.
Also, some of the core display looks will resemble its earlier versions like rounded corners, dual-toned displays with a half glass and half-matte shade etc. however, there may be slight changes as the glass shades at the backside of both the smartphones will cover the phone’s frame to make the edges more rounded.

Though there is no specific information about the camera’s megapixel count, however still through some leaked information, it has been claimed that the smartphones would come with 12.2-megapixel camera features.
