Starting around front, the smaller Pixel 3 features a 5.5-inch P-OLED screen with a 1,080 x 2,160 resolution while the larger Pixel 3 XL sports a 1,440 x 2,960 resolution 6.3-inch P-OLED display. And while the latter of the two does feature a notch, both phones retain the stereo front-facing speakers.

Just like with previous Pixel handsets, both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are almost identical spec-wise. So as far as cameras are concerned, around front, this means that the pair of smartphones each feature dual 8MP sensors (one standard f/1.8 shooter and one wide-angle f/2.2 snapper). These sensors allow the Pixels to take wide-angle selfies and handle better depth sensing. Around back, both handsets will utilize a single 12.2MP f/1.8 sensor.
