Pixel 3 XL To Sport Notch and Chin

Keeping the yearly tradition, Alphabet-owned Google will come with its upcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in October this year.

As expected, Google will launch two models - Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. The report says the Pixel 3 XL has a "nearly edge-to-edge screen, except for a thicker bezel known as a chin at the bottom of the phone".

We were able to fully match the upper notch of the Google pixel with the iPhone X. They both Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL had great chins at the bottom. And that the XL version will have a notch. A spokeswoman for Google declined to comment on the new phones.

The new devices will feature dual front-facing cameras and an upgraded camera on the back.

Given the technical challenges involved with producing a "true" edge-to-edge display, we're betting that Google will be forced to embrace the notch for 2018 but we won't know for sure until Google officially announces the device. If you're among them, you can look forward to seeing the Pixel 3 XL like how it is pictured below. A report from Bloomberg claims that Foxconn will be the manufacturer for the Pixel 3 and details several aspects of the phone's new design. This comes as a surprise, as last year's Pixel 2 XL display faced a lot of criticism, while Samsung's panel didn't receive any such hate. Another report coming from Bloomberg reveals that the Pixel 3 will be manufactured by Foxconn.

Google has ditched the headphone jack for the device, instead relying on wireless or USB-C headphones.

There are various ways android P handles the notch. As ususal, we all have been expecting the smartphones to be manufactured by the HTC's Pix team that Google acquired a year ago. It also works via voice commands using the Google Assistant. However, the company will stick with a single rear camera lens like past year on both the phones.

Google Pixel 3 standard will be the smaller model with a classic design, while the Google Pixel 3 XL is the larger model with a notch.

As per the reports, both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 Xl would come with stereo speakers.

Google isn't expected to unveil its new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL flagship phones until the late summer or early fall.
