Google accidentally confirmed Google Pixel 3 name in Open Source Project

1 Mins read

Google has already released the Android P developer preview, giving developers access to software that would run the Google Pixel 3 devices. The search engine giant hasn’t yet officially confirmed the existence of third-generation Pixel phones, neither have there been too many Google Pixel 3 leaks. But folks at XDA Developers have found first references to Google Pixel 3 in the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).

The commit was – Cherrypick “Add device config to decide which Auto Selection Network UI to use.” This change added the config because the HAL V_1_2 only supports Pixel 3, and the new Auto Selection Network UI is based on HAL V_1_2. So we set the flag to decide which Auto Selection Network UI should be used based in the device type.

While it is difficult to make sense of the commit in isolation, it definitely confirms the fact that the Pixel 3 and most probably a Pixel 3 XL is coming our way.

Google usually releases the Pixel devices in October which is still a bit far of, but this piece of news will definitely have the tech world speculating on what Google’s latest flagship will have to offer. We shall keep you updated on The Chinese publication added that the mid-range Pixel 3 would run Android Go, which is a stripped down version of Android. Android Go is optimized to offer fast and smooth user experience even on entry-level smartphones. Of course, the mid-range handset would lack some of the premium features and specifications of the high-end Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Details about the cheaper Pixel 3 are scarce, so it’s not yet clear how powerful it would be.

According to Indian publication the Economic Times, the mid-range Google Pixel 3 would launch in July or August, a few months ahead of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL debut. It would be interesting to see whether the mid-range device would retain the Pixel branding or launch under a new moniker. Google traditionally unveils the flagship Pixel phones in early October, and brings them to market by mid-October. The launch is still several months away, so we should expect to see more Google Pixel 3 leaks in the coming months.
