Once the Pixel 2 was announced, it was a foregone conclusion there would be a Pixel 3. Lo and behold, a mention of the device has popped up in AOSP, confirming Google is hard at work on its next flagship.
Unfortunately, very few details about the device are known at this point. About the only thing we do know is the device will launch with Android P, which Google has already announced.
As for the mention in AOSP, much of the language is too technical for us to understand, but a report on XDA suggests the Pixel 3 will support new networking options. The Pixel 3’s mention may also relate to Project Treble, an initiative designed to allow developers to deliver faster Android updates.
At this point, we have no clue what to expect from the Pixel 3. Will the design remain unchanged from last year? Will the device finally support wireless charging? Will it feature a display notch? (Please, no!)
With the summer months fast approaching, it’s likely we’ll start seeing Pixel 3 rumors hit with more frequency. For now, we at least have confirmation the device exists in some capacity.
