Anticipation for Google’s next big thing is rising. The company has kept a ton of enthusiasts under the sun by allegedly leaking Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices on purpose. So far, leaks have showcased both larger and smaller variants of the devices with black and white bodies. What we haven’t seen yet is a new color launching alongside the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, dubbed as “Not Pink”, a leak suggests via GSMArena. On top of that, the leaks suggest that both, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL would pack 1080p displays rather than 1440p displays found on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. This would actually be a downgrade and would be a complete bummer from Google, but there is a chance that this may be possible, after all, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL displays did suffer from blue shifts at wide viewing angles and display burn-ins.
As hilarious that sounds, Google has always had quite a hilarious juggle with their color naming schemes. Last year, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL launched in “Just Black”, “Kinda Blue” and “Clearly White” and a Panda-like black and white mashup. As hilarious and simply they sound in a world of “Rose Golds” and “Copper Browns”, Google’s color scheme has never failed to giggle us. As the name suggests, it seems like the last color launching with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is kind of pink.
Today, Google also released a video sort of mocking a ton of the leaks that have been going berserk over the past week or so. The above teaser by Google mocks reporters and content creators regarding their response to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL leaks. And if we look closer, it seems like the featured image attached to the video is a reference to the “Not Pink” Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. While we aren’t sure of anything, Google’s moves so far have been polarizing, to say the least.
By then again, it seems like Google is bamboozling us yet again on an afterthought. Last month, a subdomain under Google’s domain did tease a green color too, a color that we haven’t seen so far and haven’t seen in the images above either.
Google, please bamboozle all of us. Those notches are ugly!
