Only last week was the notch confirmed for the XL device after several phone cases emerged on Chinese e-commerce marketplace AliExpress. Though Google Pixel 2 smartphones sport dual-front camera and Google will continue to offer the same in Google Pixel 3 series as well, the absence of rear dual-camera may result in many potential buyers turning their back to Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL. Bezel-less edge to edge display in Google Pixel 3 has allowed Google to fit a bigger display size to cater to premium segment users who appreciate 5-inch or bigger display more than the devices sporting comparatively smaller display. The display might also have an 18:9 aspect ratio.
Google is working hard to complete their new flagship devices that are supposed to be released on 4 October - which is our best bet, considering the fact that both the Pixel and Pixel 2 generations were released on the same exact days previously.
The back panels of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL appear to be identical. While it's not entirely clear what this is for, the dual-camera system could enable some sort of front-facing portrait mode or, alternatively, could be part of Google's take on facial recognition. Rest of the design remains the same as the Pixel 3. The same distinctive combination of glass and metal as a year ago is to be employed on the back of the Pixel 3 duo to support eye-catching color mixes like Black & White. This does make us wonder why Google would equip its upcoming handsets with dual cameras on the front. It will come with 6.2-inch display with notch and will house the same camera and sensor as the Pixel 3. This is the first time Google will introduce a notch in their smartphones. Instead, the Pixel 3 looks like a more compact version of the Pixel 2 XL with its extended screen.
Sweden routs Mexico, but both advance
It allowed Sweden to relax and they doubled their lead after 62 minutes through Granqvist's second spot-kick of the tournament. The Swedes went through to the knockout rounds as the unlikely winners of Group F, taking the beaten Mexicans with them.
Alos, the Pixel 3 is tipped to measure 145.6x68.2x7.9mm, while the Pixel 3 XL is tipped to measure 158x76.6x7.9mm.
Judging by the leaks, it is evident that Google is willing to play it safe and follow the established design trends. The rear is nearly identical to the Pixel 3, albeit with a bigger Google logo.
Otherwise, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will host a USB Type-C port on the bottom of the phone for charging and will lack 3.5mm headphone jack again this year.
Nothing is official until Google says so.
