Get excited, Pixel fans, because today we may be getting our first good look at one of Google’s upcoming flagship Android phones.
Photos that claim to show the Google Pixel 3 XL have leaked, showing a device that looks similar to that screen protector that leaked out last month. There’s a notch up at the top of the phone with two camera cutouts, and at the bottom of the phone is a chin that’ll help give room for the front speakers. We can also see the codename “crosshatch” display on the screen.
The back of this Pixel 3 XL looks fairly a lot like the Pixel 2 XL. There’s a single rear camera with some sort of sensor in-between it and the flash, a fingerprint reader below it, and logo that looks like an O with a line through the middle. That logo is likely just meant to hide the fact that this is a Google prototype.
While still unofficial, the device shown in these leaked photos does line up with other Pixel 3 XL rumors that we’ve heard. The appearance of a notch is sure to frustrate some, but it could help Google squeeze a bit more screen real estate into a body that’s of a similar size to the Pixel 2 XL. And hey, if you really don’t like the notch, you could choose to go with the Pixel 3 instead, which is expected to be notch-less.
The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are expected to launch in October.
