Reports have surfaced in the past indicating Google’s planning to unveil two new smartphones this October, and now, fresh leaks have sprouted over at XDA regarding the larger of the new devices and what it’ll look like in the real world.
According to images uploaded by user dr.guru, the upcoming Pixel 3 XL will look very similar to last year’s Pixel 2 XL. It’ll also reportedly be very similar in size to last year’s device. What’s different for this generation is a new glass back, a significantly less noticeable two-tone aesthetic on the back, and an all-glass build.
Also new for the 2018 Pixel is a notch. A big one. Right on the front of the device sits the cutout which is nothing short of obnoxious. Apparently, it’s about twice the height of the normal Android status bar, meaning it’s gonna take up more of the screen than most users are used to. This likely to compensate for the front-facing stereo speakers and dual front-facing cameras, but it’s still an eyesore at least in these photos.
In addition, photos also seem to confirm some specs under the hood of the Pixel 3 XL such as the 64GB of storage. Other than this, however, everything else about the phone remains unconfirmed.
We don’t exactly have that much more of a wait ahead of us until the Pixel 3 and 3 XL debut. With as little as eight weeks to go, expect more rumors surrounding the devices to emerge.
