No, your eyes don't deceive you — the specs inside the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are very similar to last year's Pixel 2 lineup. But we know Google's never played the game of having new specs just for the sake of the numbers — it likes to build phones that have enough specs to accomplish its goals. That isn't to say the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are bare, though — there's plenty in here to compete with the latest high-end phones, and it's of particular note that the Pixel 3 has all of the same internals as the larger version, aside from battery and screen size of course.

Here's the complete spec sheet for both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
