Google’s upcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are some of the most hotly anticipated phones of the year, and today we may be getting a good look at their designs.
Renders that claim to show both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have been shared by @OnLeaks and MySmartPrice. These are not official images from Google, but are renders that’ve been put together using information from factory CAD documents.
According to these renders, the larger Pixel 3 XL will have a notch at the top of its display, which is said to measure 6.2 inches. There will also be a chin at the bottom of the phone’s front that’ll house a front-facing speaker. Around back we can see a “window” with a single rear camera and LED flash with a fingerprint reader below it. The Pixel 3 XL is said to measure 158 x 76.6 x 7.9mm.
The smaller Pixel 3 is said to have a 5.4-inch screen and while it does not have a notch, it does have bezels at the top and bottom of its screen. The good news is that these bezels look a bit slimmer than the ones on the Pixel 2. The device also appears to have front-facing speakers, and around back is a layout similar to the one found on the Pixel 3 XL, with a single rear camera in a “window” and a rear fingerprint reader. The Pixel 2 will reportedly measure 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9mm.
Spec details for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are largely still a mystery. However, it seems likely that they’ll both include a Snapdragon 845 processor like many other flagship Android phones, and at least 4GB of RAM for each model is also probable. It’s rumored that the new Pixel phones will include dual front-facing cameras as well.
Both phones are expected to debut in October, and as with previous Pixel models, it’s said that Verizon will be the exclusive U.S. carrier partner for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
Nothing is official until Google says it is, but the renders that’ve surfaced today do line up with leaked Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL images that we’ve seen in the past. There are likely some folks that’ll be frustrated if the Pixel 3 XL does indeed launch with a notch, but it could help Google squeeze a slightly larger screen into a footprint similar to the Pixel 2 XL, and such a move wouldn’t be a huge surprise since Google added official support for display notches in Android P.
