Google Pixel 3 XLs leaked screen protector reveals key design elements

Speaking of Pixel 2 XL, here's yet another comparison side-by-side next to each other.

Even with an exclusive point-of-sale retail provider, Google traditionally offers its hardware by direct sale as well, so non-Verizon customers will likely still be able to acquire one.

Little is known about whether the upcoming Pixel phones will feature OLED screens and who they'll be made by.

That means we're due a Pixel 3 (and, let's be frank, probably a Pixel 3 XL) in 2018 - and given how good last year's devices were, we're pretty excited. Instead, it'll be straddling it, with two display approaches.

So, if the Google Pixel 3 XL does indeed have a notch, will you pick one up? That refers to a chin at the bottom along with a considerably thick bezel at the top.

Google's upcoming Pixel smartphone could feature a bigger screen, two front-facing cameras, and its very own notch, in a design that sounds very similar to the $999 Apple iPhone X.

It is believed that the reported third device in Google's third generation Pixel line-up will also feature a traditional display, however, like all rumours, this has yet to be officially confirmed.

It'll support the edge-to-edge notch design popularized by Apple, as well as some of the gesture controls used on the iPhone X. Both the models of the company would be having just a single camera at the back but the Pixel 3 XL would have dual cameras at the front that is just inside the notch.

Google Pixel 3 Release Date and Price: When will the Google Pixel 3 XL be released? The Google Pixel 2 XL was launched in India for a starting price of Rs 73,000 while the Google Pixel 2 was launched from Rs 61,000 onwards.

As per the reports, both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 Xl would come with stereo speakers. "The display also will have a notch-or a cutout-at the top". The Pixel 3 would have a single camera at the front as well. Google so far teamed up with various OEMs to make its Nexus and Pixel devices.

To begin with, we expect to see a lot of HTC expertise in the new Pixel smartphones, considering Google's acquisition of HTC's smartphone division a year ago. Verizon is expected to again be the exclusive mainstream carrier partner in the USA, though Project Fi support is expected too. If you're anxious, just make sure you've got a secure lock screen setup so any of your pesky/nosy friends can't go snooping about your messages.
