Last-minute Google Pixel 3 leaks reveal colors, AI camera features, and even the retail box

Google’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have already leaked pretty much in their entirety, as have a vast majority of the company’s other hardware announcements slated for its New York City event tomorrow. But the leakers aren’t done yet. With less 24 hours to go until the event kicks off at 11AM ET, we have a round of fresh leaks that shed light on the Pixel 3’s new artificial intelligence-powered camera features and give us another glimpse at the available color schemes.

Google just can’t catch a break with the Pixel 3. A Verizon promotional page suggests that the handset will start at a price of $799.99 for its 64GB model. If true, this would would make it $150 more expensive than the Pixel 2 was at launch.

From VentureBeat’s Evan Blass, we now have some more photos showing off the Pixel 3 and its larger variant in all three available colors. That includes the white, black, and new pink “sand” option, which first leaked last week:

Blass also got his hands on an image of the upcoming Pixel Slate tablet, which happened to leak first over the weekend:

The Pixel 3 camera is said to include new top shot and photobooth shooting modes. Other camera features that leaked include a new zoom option called “super res zoom” that could use AI to fill in detail when zooming in close to a subject using the Pixel 3, although we don’t have a lot of concrete information on that yet, 9to5Google notes. There will also reportedly be a subject-tracking focus mode, so you don’t have to re-focus the Pixel 3 camera by tapping the screen.

Of course, this information and all the details regarding the new hardware, which is said to include a third-generation Chromecast and the new Pixel Slate tablet, will be revealed in full tomorrow. So much of what’s leaked or rumored could change slightly in the final marketing material. That said, we now have quite an unprecedented level of knowledge about this Google hardware event ahead of time, leaving very little room for surprises.
