Wait For More Information
We know Google's new phones later this year will be great devices. We know it'll have the latest Snapdragon processor with the best performance on the market, 6-8GB of RAM, more storage, more cameras, a bigger screen and everything else people love. We know all of that.
What we don't know is all of the specifics. Will Google be able to offer a bezel-free screen, in-display fingerprint scanner, and its signature front-facing speakers? If not, what will they do differently? Maybe the patent images that leaked this week are of the Pixel 5 coming in 2020. Who knows. How will it be different from the Pixel 3, compete with the Galaxy S10, and compare against the iPhone 11 Pro? Those are important questions.
Will 2019 finally be the year that Google offers more than one camera on the back? Even if they have software that makes the single Pixel 3 camera nearly as good as the triple camera phones available throughout 2018. Who knows. We might even get a Google Pixel Ultra in 2019.
Wait as long as you can until we get more and more info. You'll thank me later.
Perhaps the biggest reason to wait, for me, is because of the OnePlus 7T. This year OnePlus released two phones and the Pro was incredible, but expensive, which made it worth waiting for the Pixel 4. But now, we're also thinking it's worth waiting to see what the 7T looks like too.
Basically, one of the biggest reasons to get a OnePlus phone over a Pixel is the price, but this year that gap isn't as big as before the justify some of the shortcomings.
