Google Pixel 3 XL leak shows a notch

  • Google Pixel 3 XL leak shows a notch

Only last week was the notch confirmed for the XL device after several phone cases emerged on Chinese e-commerce marketplace AliExpress.

On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S9's bigger screen is sharper, with more pixels per inch, and it's slightly more water resistant and most interestingly it can be dunked for 30 minutes in 1.5 meters of water compared to the Pixel 2's one-meter limitation (that's about 3.3 feet). The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will most likely be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 chip and while their base 4GB/64GB memory configurations may remain the same, at least one variant of the larger device could sport 6GB of RAM and at least 128GB of storage space.

The images are also in line with previous leaked renders for the Pixel 3 and 3 XL. However, Google's Computational Neural Network allows the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL to achieve comparable background blur effects as smartphones with dual rear cameras without actually featuring a dual-camera setup. The Pixel 3 XL is also expected to have dual front-facing stereo speakers, with one of the speakers being housed on the notch. The Pixel 3's dimensions are 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9mm. Google will stick with single-lens cameras on the back, according to the report, but these will supposedly support dual-camera-alike Bokeh effects thanks to optimised software.

There are a few "controversies" surrounding the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Trump to name nominee for Supreme Court on 9 July
His nominee will need to be confirmed by the Senate where the president's Republican Party holds a narrow majority. Justice Gorsuch was sworn in on April 10, 2017, replacing Justice Antonin Scalia, who passed away suddenly.

With Google borrowing features from HTC's latest flagship, it probably won't come as a surprise to learn that the engineering talent that the firm acquired from HTC earlier this year will be heavily involved in developing the new devices.

While this isn't the juiciest of leaks, tipster Ice Universe is claiming seperately that LG Display will be supplying OLED panels with notches to Google. Like last year, the Pixel 3 duo may debut in October this year. These are the third generation of the Google Pixel smartphones and should be revealed in September this year by the company. While it's immediately unclear the reason behind the major design change, it's expected that Google wants to make the device thinner than its predecessors.

Considering Google is going to hike up prices again, do you think the Pixel 3 and XL will be worth splashing $650 and $850 over?

Nothing is official until Google says so.
