The Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL are expected to launch in a few months, and leaks about Google’s upcoming flagship phones are already doing rounds on the internet. The latest leak comes via XDA Developers who spotted a hands-on image of the alleged ‘Clearly White’ variant of the Pixel 3 XL on the wild.
XDA forum user ‘dr.guru’ posted an image that shows that a single primary camera unit will be retained on the Pixel 3 XL. The first thing you’ll notice is that the signature two-tone effect is now gone. Instead, the ‘Clearly White’ Pixel 3 XL will be clearly all white. It’s also made of glass, with the fingerprint sensor housed centrally at the back.
Codenamed ‘crosshatch’, the Pixel 3 XL will also feature a notch if this image is to be believed. No surprises there, as it confirms a previous leak showing the same. Google's support for the notch element in Android P is also an indication that the company will adopt the same on its own flagship Pixel devices. In the leaked Pixel 3 XL unit, the notch is on the larger side and despite the notch, there are significant bezels on the phone.
Now, even though Google is retaining the single camera on the back of the Pixel 3 XL, up front will see a dual camera unit for the first time. The front will also house a speaker at the bottom.
Further, the hands-on image shows the fastboot screen of the Pixel 3 XL, revealing that the phone will pack 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. According to the leakster, the Pixel 3 XL in the image could not boot any further because it has been “remotely erased by Google.”
Recent rumours also state that Google is working on a wireless-charging dock for the upcoming Pixel 3 series of devices. That should explain Google’s decision to go for glass.
A lot of uncertainty surrounds the purported leaked hands-on images. The Google logo on the phone is also not the same as what it should be. It’s also unconfirmed whether the timeline of the launch will remain the same. Last year, and the year before, the Pixel phones were announced on October 4 by Google. We’ll find out about this year’s plans soon enough.
