Google Pixel 3 XL images reportedly leak out, show off a notch

We have already seen plenty of rumors about Google's upcoming Pixel device but for the first time, we were able to see a working prototype.

On this episode of the Droid Life Show, you know we've got to talk a lot about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL from Google.

It should be noted that this looks to be a real leak, it is also completely possible it has been faked in order for publicity.

It's a similar system to what Google has used with the likes of the Pixel 2, and could be used to better allow a single-lens camera to create the bokeh effect in Portrait Mode, as well as potentially benefiting HDR mode. Meanwhile, it is also speculated that the phone will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 as the processor, befitting its flagship status.

When Apple removed the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 in 2016, Google took a dig at the company a month later when it unveiled its original Pixel services.

The previous report points at a unusual memory configuration - 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

However, further inspection reveals that there's actually no seam or break between the glossy and matte materials. If Google's chosen to go this route, it's probably been done to enable wireless charging - something numerous Pixel's competitors from Samsung and Apple already support.

Google's a new entrant in the flagship smartphone race.

On the rear, Google seems to be sticking to its two-tone finish.

The glass back could be a solid indicator that the device will support the much-sought-after wireless charging, but it's not 100% sure as we saw with the OnePlus 6. Even if it's true, it brings up so many more questions. As we get closer to the inevitable launch in the fall, we expect many more leaks like this to develop. This could be the official prototype logo that the tech giant may be using, until the final product is ready.
