Turns out it’s a Samsung AMOLED, the same type of display (though not necessarily the same screen) that appears in Samsung’s latest models such as the Galaxy Note 9 and the Pixel 3’s predecessors, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
5 reasons not to buy the Pixel 3 or 3 XL
A couple other notable takeaways from the teardown: The Pixel 3 has a lot more adhesive than the Pixel 2 models, much like the Galaxy S9 Plus, making it harder to repair. It’s easy to remove the battery, but more difficult to get to other parts that frequently need attention. And the full-size glass back makes it more likely to crack if dropped.
Google unveiled the new Pixel phones at an event on Oct. 9, where it also showed off the Google Home Hub and the new Pixel Slate. Google says the cameras on the Pixel 3 and 3 XL are even better than the Pixel 2, in part because of its continued confidence in its single rear camera. The phones also have two front-facing cameras that can capture wider selfie photos.
You can see how the camera on Google’s Pixel 3 compare to Apple’s iPhone XS in CNET’s camera showdown.
