Revealed images of the Pixel 3 XL leave nothing to the imagination
We saw teasers on the Pixel 3 devices a few weeks ago, but those were images of screen protectors. This week, however, live images of the Pixel 3 XL's prototype have been revealed, throwing more light on what we should expect from the Google flagship.
Going by the images, the device will sport a notch. We've already had major hints pointing towards that but it's nice to get nigh-official confirmation. As also seen previously, the device will sport two selfie cameras at the top, and a front-facing speaker grille at the bottom.
The back of the device holds another surprise: the absence of dual rear cameras. Dual rear cameras have become the bread and butter of the industry and, while most implementations are mostly useless, one would expect Pixel 3 to sport one such setup. The Pixels are widely hailed as the best camera smartphones on the planet, in any case, so it's unlikely that the absence of dual rear cameras will mean much.
On the back of the device is a regular fingerprint sensor. The sides harbor the power button, volume buttons, and the sim slot. The bottom houses a Type-C port. There is, as expected, no headphone jack in sight. The device sports a glass back, which may allude to wireless charging support.
Of interest to some would be the fact that the Pixel 3 XL will be powered by a Snapdragon 845. The model on display also features 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
Last week, it was revealed that the Pixel 3 devices would likely feature OLED displays made by LG, with reports claiming that Google had made orders for panels from the South Korean electronics manufacturer. There was also word that the Pixels would be produced by Foxconn, the company that makes iPhones.
