Alleged Pixel 3 XL Prototype Photos Show Notch, Dual Front Cameras, Chin

It's just that this time around, the Google Pixel 3 will be manufactured by Foxconn.

Today has been a busy day for Pixel 3 XL leaks, after images of what is likely to be Google's flagship smartphone showed up online this morning. We know this isn't what everyone was hoping for, but chin up, notches aren't the end of the world.

While the presence of a display cut is hardly surprising given that Android P comes with native notch support, the leak suggests that only one of the Pixel 3 smartphones - the bigger Pixel 3 XL - will sport one. It's not the same "G" logo that appears on all of Google's Pixel phones, but as 9to5Google notes, this logo has appeared on other Pixel prototypes, which makes these images seem even more legit. It is interesting to see Google stick to a single camera setup at the rear despite nearly every other OEM switching to a dual-camera setup even for their budget devices.

I don't need to tell you how contentious this year's notch display design has been and it looks like the Pixel 3, or at the very least one of the rumored models, will come with a notch.

On the back of the device is a regular fingerprint sensor.

In 2018, Google's flagship Pixel 3 XL will still offer all the same benefits as the current-generation Pixel lineup, but it'll be packaged in a fresh new design that's sleek and modern, albeit familiar.

A Bloomberg report claims the notch at the top of the Pixel 3 XL will not be as wide as that on the iPhone X, but could be noticeably taller.

The Pixel range stands out in an industry increasingly populated by "bezel-less" clones or (worse) blatant copies of Apple's latest designs. Because that's sure what it looks like just happened. Google is also said to be working on a third mid-segment Pixel smartphone, which is codenamed "Bonito".

Since Android 4.2 Jelly Bean's release, the operating system has provided support for wireless charging but it is disappointing that it took Google this long to potentially bring it to the Pixel 3 lineup. We now have some new information via Roland Quandt ...
