Google Pixel 3 marketing videos have been leaked ahead of launch on October 9.

The video, posted by MySmartPrice, reveals that the camera on Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL will be capable of quickly scanning an email address from a business card, without even taking a photograph. Post scanning email address, the phone will directly open the user’s email app.

Notably, Google Lens app already includes a similar feature, where users can directly save a contact’s information by taking a photo of their business card. Now, the feature will reportedly make its way into Pixel 3’s native camera app. Google Pixel 3 series will run Android Pie out of the box.

Google Pixel 3 video also highlights features such as Active Edge that we saw on the Pixel 2 series, as well as navigation gestures. Using the Active Edge feature, users can launch Google Assistant. Pixel 3 users will apparently be able to long press the power button to take screenshots. The camera can be launched by double pressing the power button.

Pixel 3 will come without the display notch, while Pixel 3 XL will sport a notched display.

Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL will sport dual front cameras as well as a chin at the bottom. The Pixel 3 series will continue with single rear camera sensors that we saw on the previous-generation Pixel phones. Both Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor. The Pixel 3 XL is estimated to sport a 6.2-inch display, being rumoured to offer 64GB and 128GB internal storage options. Pixel 3 could offer a 5.5-inch display and pack 4GB RAM.
