Google Pixel 3 Teardown Shows an LG-Made OLED Display: iFixit

Google Pixel 3 XL Display Ranked Alongside Galaxy Note 9 iPhone XS Max by DisplayMate

Now that the Google Pixel 3 is official, Google has continued to provide additional details about the custom silicon that it is implementing to help differentiate itself from the competition.

Speaking of the display, unlike the Pixel 3 XL's Samsung display, the smaller Pixel adopts an LG-made OLED panel.

Consumers who pre-book the Google Pixel 3 64GB model will have to make a down-payment of Rs 17,000. Protect your new smartphone with one of these cases.

Also, last year, the Pixel 2 XL and its LG screen weren't impressive, with users outright complaining about it. Hopefully its partnership with Samsung proves to be a lucrative one, as many have already praised the crisp colour over the blue hue found on the Pixel 3's predecessor. Whether a Verizon representative (in store, online or on the phone) would be willing to do that for you when you're not a Verizon customer is another question entirely.

YouTube outage across the globe
Emilio Medina (@emiliomedina) thought about what YouTube celebrities would do for income when the platform goes offline. YouTube later apologized, saying there was a "miscommunication" and the issue has now been fully resolved.

So, while the display is expected to be much more reliable and crisp than LG's attempt, iFixit partly blames Samsung's screen implementation for its lack of repairability. All members of the new Android family use 4GB of RAM and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845, as well as the Pixel Visual Core, a specialized system-on-chip Google introduced with the Pixel 2 series previous year, unveiling it in the form of a silicon exclusively dedicated to efficient on-device image processing, particularly HDR+.

That's not necessarily a bad deal if you can activate the new Pixel phone on Verizon first.

Typically, the only reason why a Pixel would be SIM locked is if it was being sold by Verizon - or Best Buy as a Verizon reseller - on a multi-month financing plan. Assuming no product strategy change takes place in the near term, Google's future devices are also likely to sport their own Top Shot-like gimmicks which will be just as inconsequential as the said functionality.
