Google has some serious plans in store for its Pixel 3 launch

Google got in the headphone dongle business when the Pixel 2 infamously axed the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack after Google made a big to-do about Apple's recent iPhone's doing the same thing in its reveal of the original Pixel the preceding year.

Now Google has implemented a new change. The new adaptor has now been spotted on Google Store, where it is priced at $12 (approximately Rs 870), which is $3 (approximately Rs 220) more than the previous variant. It's an odd way to improve battery life, but if you're still carrying around headphone dongles in your pocket, this is probably worth the upgrade. Well, you make it smaller for a start. It's additionally ever-so-a dinky bit smaller than the 2017 adapter, measuring in at 3.67 in. long, Zero.forty six in. extensive, and Zero.3 in. colossal, and weighing accurate Zero.17g.

But wait! That's not all. Google is only offering the cable in White color, like all its cables.




Wait! There's more! Playback time has also been improved by 38 per cent because it draws less power from your phone.

Finally, the new adapter shaves off a little material in every dimension, although so little that it may be completely imperceptible without a side-by-side comparison. For more on that subject, you should check out this PCWorld article. No madam, I'm not pulling your leg. Sir, I am not a "filthy liar" - see for yourself!
