Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 Camera Specs

The third device from Google is not a massive change from the previous but does concentrate on the camera as it did before.

There will be two front-facing cameras for double selfie action, with a standard and wide angle lens. While on the back there will be a single 12.2MP camera, unlike some other cameras that have gone for dual or triple camera action.

No need to worry though, the one camera with an update called Night Sight, which will come later this year is said to be able to deliver natural-looking night time photos without the use of the flash in the dark.

Super Res Zoom another mode takes multiple shots then joining them together to give more detail when you zoom in on the photo. Another mode called Top Shot tries to avoid taking photos if the subject blinks or sneezes but it unclear if it also helps with other sudden movements.

What colours do the Pixel 3 & Pixel 3 XL come in?

This time around there are three different colours to choose from, there is the usual Just Black and Clearly White but a new colour called ‘Not Pink’ which is pink but just a very toned down colour.
