Saying we know everything about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is the understatement of the year. Yet, we’re still not done seeing leaks that completely dismantle the mystery of Google’s October 9 event. The latest leak comes courtesy of MySmartPrice and is a tutorial video that shows off the smaller Pixel 3 in action.
The quick two minute video shows off the Pixel 3’s software capabilities and guides users through the interface, most notably the new gestures Google added with Android Pie. It does a great job of establishing what the new home button does; one swipe up takes you to the multitasking menu while another swipe up takes you to the app drawer. It’s pretty self-explanatory but will prove to be useful to those who struggle with the new interface, which does have a learning curve.
However, the big takeaway of the leaked video is the phone that is being used for the tutorial. It’s none other than the PixeL 3. At first blush you almost want say it’s the Pixel 2 XL given the semi-large bezels and front-facing speakers, yet knowing what we know from the design, concluding it’s a Pixel 3 proves to be easy.
The biggest giveaway is the new front-facing dual-camera system.
The leak is hardly surprising and even fails to provide as much information as previous leaks—we never get a clear look at the back of the phone. Still, it gives us a closer look at the Pixel 3 and how it’ll look with Android Pie.
