Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL show up at the FCC


Google's Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have been leaking a lot lately, even though their official unveiling date might be October 9. Today it's been revealed that they have passed through the FCC's certification process already - with most documents filed in early July, though some date back to late June. We're only now finding out about this because the confidentiality period for the technical reports has ended today.

The two devices have been submitted to the FCC by Google itself, unlike in previous years when HTC (for both first-gen Pixels), then HTC and LG (for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, respectively) were tasked with that.

This further solidifies a past rumor saying that the new models have been fully designed in-house at Google by the team of engineers it acquired from HTC last year. Foxconn was said to be the manufacturing partner for the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, which is the same company that also makes most iPhones.

The Pixel 3 has the model number A4RG013A, while the Pixel 3 XL is A4RG013C. For reference, the Pixel 2 went by G011A, and the Pixel 2 XL was referred to as G011C. The G0xx naming scheme is also used for the Google Clips camera.

The phones' FCC visit doesn't reveal any earth-shattering new details about them, except the fact that wireless charging is present (although that too has been rumored a few times before). As expected, both handsets support LTE, NFCNear field communication (NFC) is a set of communication protocols that enable two electronic devices, one of which is usually a portable device such as a smartphone, to establish communication by bringing them within 4 cm (2 in) of each other., Wi-FiWi-Fi is the name of a popular wireless networking technology that uses radio waves to provide wireless high-speed Internet and network connections. A common misconception is that the term Wi-FiWi-Fi is a type of wireless networking protocol that allows devices to communicate without cords or cables. Wi-Fi is technically an industry term that represents a type of wireless local area network (LAN) protocol based on the 802.11 IEEE network standard. It is the most popular means of communicating data wirelessly, within a fixed location, today. is short for "wireless fidelity," however this is not the case.
