Google has announced the Indian prices for the new Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL smartphones, both of which will be Flipkart exclusives. Pre-orders begin on October 11 with shipping starting on November 1.

The Pixel 3 starts at Rs 71,000 in India for the 64GB variant, and Rs 80,000 for the 128GB unit. The larger Pixel 3 XL starts at Rs 83,000 for the 64GB variant, and Rs 92,000 for the top-end 128GB version.

You can get a further Rs 5,000 off when using HDFC Bank credit or debit cards, an exchange bonus of Rs 4,000 for trading in your older phone. You can also get up to 50% buyback value for exchange from Flipkart, and no cost EMI options from a range of banks and cards.

As expected from Google, the Pixel 3 devices come with a distinctive dual-tone design in colors such as Clearly White, Just Black, and Not Pink. Slightly departing from the leaks earlier, the Pixel 3 features a 5.5-inch flexible OLED display while the XL features a 6.3-inch edge-to-edge display of the same nature but with a notch. Other than the display, there is no difference between the two smartphones.

Just like their predecessors, the Pixel 3 and 3 XL stand out with their photography skills and attractive software features. The duo features a single 12.2MP sensor on the back while there is a couple of 8MP shooters on the front, one of which is dedicated to wide-angle selfies.
