Pixel 3

Earlier this month, Google released the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Now, the original firmware for these smartphones are available for download. The new Pixel mobile phone is pre-installed with the Android 9 Pie system. The original ROM released this time is naturally based on this system. This firmware can provide a recovery method when the user’s mobile phone encounters an unexpected situation. Nevertheless, the related operation risk is high thus you need the experience to use this.

With the exception of the screen and battery, the hardware configuration of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is basically the same. The Pixel 3 XL comes with a 6.3-inch display (resolution 1440 x 2960) and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Its younger sibling, Pixel 3 has a 5.5-inch screen (resolution 1080 x 2160) with 18:9 aspect ratio.  Both are made of OLED material but while the Pixel 3XL uses a Samsung display, the Pixel 3 comes with an LG display.


These phones use a Snapdragon 845 chipset. However, the large core hits 2.5GHz while the small core attains 1.6GHz. This reduction is to enable the phone to conserve battery power.
