SyrupCast Podcast Ep. 181: Google Pixel remastered, with a notch

Pixel 3

This week on the SyrupCast, MobileSyrup features editor Igor Bonifacic, managing editor Patrick O’Rourke, telecom reporter Sameer Chhabra and freelance technology reporter Josh McConnell, discuss the recent launch of Google’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

This past week, Igor and Josh flew to New York City for the long-anticipated Pixel 3 release keynote. The team wasn’t surprised by the smartphone’s specs, as nearly everything about the device leaked ahead of its official release date.

The SyrupCast team debates the depth of the Pixel 3’s notch and discusses this year’s new features, including the smartphone’s dual front-facing cameras.

The team then talks about where the Pixel line can go from here. Patrick’s take is that this is an iterative step forward for the Pixel 3. Sameer predicts that Google’s push for AI will continue. And Josh thinks that we’ll see a bit of a design change in the next version of the tech giant’s flagship smartphone.

Tune in to hear the SyrupCast team’s thoughts.
