Google accidently confirms the existence of Pixel 3
Rumors have been spreading about the new Pixel phone that is going to be released this year. But google accidentally confirmed the Pixel 3 smartphone. Still, there are no details about the smartphone, not even the design or features.
In a commit message on the Android Open Source Project, it read “This change added the config because the HAL V_1_2 only supports Pixel 3, and the new Auto Selection Network UI is based on HAL V_1_2. So we set the flag to decide which Auto Selection Network UI should be used based in the device type”, the commit is called “Cherrypick”.
This was first spotted by XDA-Developers, Mashable posts that ‘HAL’ is ‘Hardware Abstraction Layer’, which is a software that connects a phone hardware to Android Operating System. This particular HAL is meant for radio connectivity.
