But Google might have come up with a neat new feature that could help shift the focus away from the notch to and onto the screen.
The Google Pixel 3 XL images reveal that it will be housing a large notch that will accommodate a pair of selfie cameras, one of the front-facing speakers and proximity and ambient sensors. Thanks to this early leak, you won't need to wait for the launch of the two devices in a few weeks to enjoy some new wallpapers.
A new Pixel Stand could be rolled out by Google, one of the certified charging accessories developed to function with the Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3. Tipster Evan Blass also posted plain press renders of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL to show their design. Thhe Pixel 3 will continue to have a conventional design with thick bezels on the top and bottom. For those who prefer city-like images, there will be silhouettes of NY and San Francisco, which show 3D images of popular buildings in those cities.
As far as internals are concerned, the Snapdragon 845 chipset and 4 GB of RAM are tipped to power both phones.
Once Google Pixel 3 is available to be purchased, developers can port the new Pixel Wallpapers applications to other devices which don't run Android Pie. Also, the calendar date on the phone is October 9th, which is when Google will hold press events in NY and Paris to unveil the new Pixels. The "it just works" nature of the feature could be the step that it requires to see broader adoption - a step that their "Google Now On Tap" feature never really took. They can react to various factors and variables, like music playing in the background, notifications, time, and more. They are "Come Alive" and "Living Universe".
The same user also gave us another bunch of images of the alleged Pixel 3 XL and also pointed out the device has a glass back and a SIM tray at the bottom.
The much awaited Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will be released on October 9th.
