At its hardware event in New York City today, Google announced the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, succeeding the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, respectively. The headphone jack is still missing, and now the XL has an ugly notch, but maybe you’re OK with that.

Preorders begin today, and the devices will begin shipping on October 18. Before you get out your credit card, you might want to see exactly what you’re getting with the newest Pixels.

We’re assuming you’re not into Apple’s iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max, nor Samsung’s Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note9. You want the latest Android software and the fastest updates, plus all of Google’s mobile software smarts.

If you’re going from the Pixel 2 to the Pixel 3, you’ll get about the same-size phone, slightly heavier, with a bigger screen and a larger battery. The same goes if you’re going from the Pixel 2 XL to the Pixel 3 XL, except you will get a slightly smaller battery. In both cases, you’ll be paying more, mainly for a faster processor and dual front-facing cameras. Oh, and Google has finally added support for IP68 dust and water resistance, like other Android flagships have had for years.
