Google Pixel 3 will not get the usual on-screen buttons

08 August 2018
It became known about another innovation, which will receive a new generation of Pixel smartphones. Alas, it can hardly be called useful or even pleasant.As I'm sure many have heard, the recently released mobile operating system from Google - Android 9 Pie, received support for a new way of control. The new "Android" will get just one on-screen button that supports gesture control. Of course, the user will be able to return more familiar navigation buttons in the settings of the gadget. True, the owners of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices will be deprived of this privilege. The representatives of the Android development team themselves have already confirmed that the gesture system will be not only the main, but also the only one for Pixel third-generation gadgets. It is known that, for example, to view the list of running applications, you will need to swipe up the smartphone screen, and to switch between them - make a swipe in the right direction. In fairness, it should be noted that Google representatives have not yet decided to abandon the on-screen button "Back". The impossibility to choose a more user-friendly way to control the smartphone is a very strange step for Google, because they expect from their own gadgets the IT-giant exclusive features, but not limitations. We can only hope that the rejection of the usual on-screen buttons will not affect the popularity of Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL smartphones and will not disappoint potential buyers.
