Google recently launched its new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones globally. In a teardown of both the devices by iFixit, it was found that the OLED display used inside the Pixel 3 XL is manufactured by Samsung, whereas the one used on the Pixel 3 is manufactured by LG. Last year we saw a Samsung panel being used in the Pixel 2 and an LG panel being used on the Pixel 2 XL.

The Pixel 2 XL was panned for its display, which had screen burn-in issues when it first launched. Google had later issues an update to fix some of the problems, though the screen remained an issue with the Pixel 2 XL. With the newer Pixel 3 XL, Google appears to have solved the problem by going with Samsung for the bigger display and is mostly getting positive reviews around this.

According to a report by GizmoChina, the LG OLED display panel used inside the Pixel 3 is the same one Google used for the last year’s Pixel 2 XL. However, the earlier issues seem to have been solved with the new Pixel 3 phone, which does have a slightly bigger 5.5-inch display. Google Pixel 3 does not sport a notch though, unlike the bigger Pixel 3 XL.

Google Pixel 3 is priced at Rs 71,000 for the 64GB internal storage variant, the 128GB internal storage variant is priced at Rs 80,000. Whereas, the Pixel 3 XL 64GB internal storage and 128GB internal storage variants are priced at Rs 83,000 and Rs 92,000, respectively.
