Google Pixel 3 (Unlocked & SIM Free / UK)


Officially announced at the Made by Google 2018 event on October 9th 2018, the Google Pixel 3 & Pixel 3 XL are among the first phones available with Android 9.0 (Pie).

Google's Pixel range has received critical acclaim for their photography prowess and this continues with the third generation of Pixel phones.

A single 12.2MP camera lens goes against the recent trend for multiple lenses. Yet Google's unmatched software processing, combined with a custom "Visual Core" chip, delivers exceptional imagery that bursts with detail, even in challenging conditions. 

Overall the physical designs of both phones have been improved, with a slimmer chassis and more subtle variations in colour. Pixel 3 has thinner bezels than 2018's Pixel 2. The Pixel 3 XL display features a 'notch' in the top so the screen extends into the corners of the handset.

Wireless charging support is also included for the first time in a Pixel smartphone and Google's generous offer of unlimited storage for Google Photos taken with Pixel devices remains available.
