If last year’s Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL is anything to go by, there’s a lot to expect this time from Google. However, there isn’t much left to the imagination when it comes to the upcoming Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 3 XL. The smartphones have been leaked left, right and center. It has been spotted in subways (more than once); they were being sold by retailers even before they officially go on sale; the new Pixel phones have also surfaced in hands-on videos and within lines of code. As a result, we now have a distinctly clear idea about what to expect from the upcoming flagship phones from Google. Before they are officially unveiled on October 9 in an event in New York, here’s a roundup of everything we know about the Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 3 XL.
A Notchy Affair
Hands-on images and videos have showed the larger Google Pixel 3 XL, like most Android phones, will have a notch. The display cutout, first seen on the iPhone X allows manufacturers to fit a larger screen without increasing the footprint of the device. And that’s the first thing you’ll notice about the new Pixel 3 XL. The notch will, quite possibly, house two cameras, the earpiece and the proximity sensor. Most likely there will be an option to hide the notch and most apps will be adapted to fit the bigger screen. It also seems like LG again would be supplying the display for the Pixel 3 XL . It will be a P-OLED display, but based on what the LGV40 ThinQ is shaping up to be, the panel looks more promising than before. Google will offer some choice to the users though as the smaller Pixel 3 will come sans the notch.
