With Google expected to launch its flagship smartphones, likely to be called the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, in the next few months, a new unboxing video has revealed the latter could come with 6.7-inch screen and 3430mAh battery.

“After doing an impromptu unboxing, a Russian blogger posted a look-around session with the device, showcasing the design and perusing the Android 9 Pie software. A more subtle two-tone design can be seen on this white version, a notch, and a pixel density combo of 1440×2960 and 494ppi that our humble calculations return to mean a giant 6.7-inch+ display, Phone Arena reported on Friday.

According to the blogger, the device (in the video) was a pre-release version, so we can hope that the design of he upcoming smartphone is being refined.

“Further down the specifications list are a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 4GB RAM or 64GB storage and a 3430 mAh battery. The camera duties are taken by a 12MP sensor again, it seems, with an 8MP selfie shooter at the front,” the report added.

A leak from XDA Developers via a forum user named “dr.guru” last month revealed Google could release the smartphone in a “Clearly White” colour variant.

Australia Proposes To Strengthen Regulations of Facebook, Google

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) on Monday proposed measures to counter the dominant market positions of Google and Facebook and strengthen monitoring on their access to information, advertising and consumers personal data.

The regulatory body, which recommended 11 preliminary measures in the report, was directed to conduct a public inquiry into the impact of digital search engines, social media platforms and other digital content in 2017 by then treasurer and current Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

“Acting as an intermediary between consumers and news outlets, platforms are inherently influential in shaping consumers’ choices of digital journalism,” said the report cited by Efe news.

This influential position and filtration of news items could place the consumer in a so-called filter bubble, increasing the risk of consumers being exposed to unreliable news, according to the report.

“The algorithms operated by each of Google and Facebook, as well as other policies, determine which content is surfaced and displayed to consumers in news feed and search results,” it said.

“The ACCC considers that the strong market position of digital platforms like Google and Facebook justifies a greater level of regulatory oversight,” Chair Rod Sims said.

The commission called for the creation of a regulatory authority with powers to monitor these digital platforms and recommended establishing an automatic mechanism to take down content that violates copyright.

The ACCC said consumers should be informed about the manner in which these platforms collect and use their data to create personalized advertising.

This would include a reform of privacy laws to require the user’s express consent to data collection and “enable consumers to require erasure of their personal information where they have withdrawn their consent”.

ACCC said that it found that “competition may have been distorted in multiple sectors where consumer data is used”.

Facebook has 17 million monthly users in Australia — 68 per cent of its population — while Instagram, second most popular site in terms of users – which is owned by Facebook, has 11 million users.

In 2017, Google registered 90 per cent of search traffic originating from Australian desktops and 98 per cent from mobile phones. (IANS)
