For the first time ever, Optus are saying, “Hey Google” to The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

 

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are now available to order with Optus.

 “Hey Google.”

 

Help when you need it with Google assistant. Get sports scores, news, commute times, weather info and more – all with a simple squeeze, or just by using your voice.

 

A camera so good that it deserves unlimited online storage.

 

Snap portraits like a pro with Portrait Mode. Capture smiles, not blinks for a great photo every time. You can save all your favourite snaps, for free with unlimited cloud storage space on Google Photos.1

 

Charges Fast. Lasts long.

 

Pixel 3 comes with lightning fast wireless charging. Smart enough to limit battery use for unused apps – enough juice to keep you running up to a day.2

 

Selfie sticks are thing of the past with wide-angled Group selfies.

 

The Pixel 3’s front facing camera consists of two 8 megapixel wide-angled lenses. Lenses wide enough, you can get everyone in the picture.

 

Make your world come to life.

 

Search what you see with Google Lens. Look up clothing and home decor, copy and translate text, and identify landmarks, plants, and dogs.3

 

The joy of missing out.

 

Disconnect from your phone when and where you want! Focus on time with family and friends. Use the wind-down mode to run the screen to greyscale, allowing for a good night’s sleep.

Does this phone receive updates straight from Google or does it have to wait in line like the rest of the android phones on Optus?

Hey @Whelp888 - at this stage, I'd recommend keeping an eye on our Android Software Updates page here to confirm this information. I'm afraid that we've not yet been advised if anything will be different for the Pixel, although I'd assume that it would follow the same process.

Are VoLTE and WIFI Calling going to be enabled on these devices at some point? Obviously early days, but wondering what the plans are as the devices natively support them.

Hi @shaboogen, not supported currently. Whilst I can't give a time frame, I would anticipate this to change at some point. Stay tuned Smiley Happy

I was expecting at least 6gig of Ram from Google for the pixel 3XL and also more screen to body ratio.
I will pass this one and wait for the the next pixel series.
And from my current customer service experience with many months of billing problems. I would rather choose other network provider to go for a plan.
