  • Google Pixel 3 XL images reportedly leak out, show off a notch

Now, fresh images of a Pixel 3 XL prototype have emerged online showing us the device from all angles. Apparently, Google is planning to add dual front cameras (at least that's what it looks like) to the Pixel 3 XL.

While the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL are expected to be launched in October this year, in terms of specifications, it is said that both the smartphones will come with AMOLED displays, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under-the-hood, 4/6GB of RAM while storage options will be starting from 64GB.

The shot of the front of the phone in this latest release is a little blurry so the notch in the screen isn't as visible, however you can now see the front-facing speaker at the bottom of the screen.

The device also features a notch at the top of its display.

Overall not that different from the Pixel 2 XL, which shouldn't be a surprise, though Google has jumped in with the other bezel-hating companies to build a bigger display. However, only the Pixel 3 XL has surfaced and these photos are of a prototype. It looks a lot like the existing Pixel 2, with a single camera, rear fingerprint reader, and a two-tone design. Google Pixel 3 internally bears the codename "Blueline", according to a Droid Life report.

That would seem to indicate that Google is moving to a glass back for the Pixel 3, and seeking to make it evocative of previous models, which employed both metal and glass for the back, through the use of some clever industrial design.

What do you think, is this a real prototype of the Pixel 3 XL? The device sports a glass back, which may allude to wireless charging support. This way, the display controller component can be hidden behind the screen itself, rather than beneath it like most phones. While the Pixel and Pixel 2 generations don't have the hardware for wireless charging, there's certainly room for the Pixel 3 to have it at this early stage.

Perhaps what's most interesting about the Pixel 3 leaks and renders that we've seen so far is how similar the handset looks to the Pixel 2.
