A leaked promotional video of the Pixel 3 revealed off the phone’s capability to immediately scan an email address from a business card without even having to take a photograph. The video, posted by MySmartPrice, also resembles the leak and approves the return of Active Edge functionality and gesture controls.
This business card scanning functionality was previously available as part of Google Lens, where it’s capable of creating a new contact based on the information on a photograph of a business card. The exception here is that the Pixel 3 appears to be able to scan details using the native camera app without demanding to take a photo first and then open your email app directly.
At this point, the fine quantity of Pixel 3 leaks means that it’s almost harder to list the things we don’t know that the things we do. We’ve witnessed the design of the phone, its specs, camera samples, charging stand, and even the contents of its retail package. Google will have its work cut out if it wants to throw any surprises at all at the phone’s official launch on October 9th.
We’ll be updating everyone with the latest news of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, so stay tuned with us!
