Pixel 3 XL Concept Shows Off What the Future Holds

Pixel 3 XL Concept Shows Off What the Future Holds

Pixel 3 was recently confirmed to be the name of Google's next flagship smartphone, courtesy an AOSP (Android Open Source Project) commit. It's been about eight months since the launch of the current-gen Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, though, which means that it's about time we got ready for leaks and rumors of the upcoming Pixel 3 devices.

Yesterday we shared a potentially huge Google leak that left people with mixed emotions.

If the images are of genuine products destined for the Pixel 3 (XL), then they also provide some key information as follows; both devices feature front facing stereo speakers, and both devices feature front facing twin camera setups. The Google Pixel 3 has gone down a traditional route of minimising bezels with a regular symmetrical screen, retaining space in the bezels for things like speakers, sensors, and cameras. The smaller Pixel 3 appears to have a large bezel above the display in addition to the chin, while the Pixel 3 XL will apparently clone the iPhone X's notch.

To be honest, I could see the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL looking just like this.

The concept maker also shows how the Pixel 3 XL would look like after hiding the Notch via Software. We will need to wait until the autumn for the official reveal of Google's latest Android smartphones.

If all this pans out, it'll be interesting to see how receptive Android "fanboys" are to a Pixel 3 XL that obviously apes Apple's iPhone X design.

With the surplus of notched Android smartphones, it's possible that Google will follow suit with a notched handset of its own.
