08/21/18: Pixel 3 XL has been mirrored and publicly photographed by one MobileSyrup Reader.
Spy shot (Below), taken on Canada's public transport system, confirms that the Android Pie flagship will sport a deep iPhone X like that will probably accommodate two front cameras. It is still unclear whether these will be used to offer Face ID type approval, or simply a funnel portrait mode with bokeh effect.
An image on the back of the device does not tell us much about it but seems to show a single rear camera and a new curved glass return. Google's two-tone design appears to remain in spite of earlier rumors that point to a uniform color scheme.
08/13/18: An early hand-on video has shown that Google's Pixel 3 XL will have a 9-inch 6.7-inch screen.
The four minute video (Below), sent by the Ukrainian blog "iVenyaWay", gives us a glimpse of a driven, functioning Pixel 3 XL for the first time. And despite the earlier rumors that the smartphone would pack a modest 6.2in screen, it shows us that the handset will pack an Obs 9-rivaling 6.7in 2960×1440 OLED screen.
Unlike Note 9, Pixel 3 XL will sport a chunky heel to hold its twin forward facing cameras and a large chin under the display. It will also include a 2015-esque 12.2MP camera with a lens on the back, while Note 9 packs an upgraded 12MP dual camera system.
Otherwise, this extensive leak confirms that Pixel 3 XL will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB of storage space, a 3,430 mAh battery and a USB C port. It will also run Android 9.0 Pie, of course, and the video shows Google Google's new navigation error.
8/8/18: The unveiling of Google's Pixel 3 series is probably still months away, but it has not stopped photos of "Completed" Pixel 3 XL production hardware that appears online.
The pictures (Below), which comes via Russian tech blogger Канал Лучкова, confirms much of what we already know, Pixel 3's chunky notch, its only lens rear camera and its new unified color scheme, shows Google ridding its usual two-tone design.
A look at the handset setup menu confirms that Pixel 3 XL runs Android 9, of course, and packs an 8-core Qualcomm processor (probably Snapdragon 845) parade with a 4GB RAM and an Adreno GPU. The image also confirms the handset's screen resolution of 1440×2960 and pixel density of 494.
Also in the leak is a picture of what looks like bundled USB-C headphones (above), all-but-confirms previous rumors that Google is preparing a wired version of its Pixel Bud headphones.
6/8/18: The launch date for Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL has leaked, with permission of you, Google.
YouTube Channel This is Tech Today saw an advertisement on Famebit, allegedly made by Google, seeking you, influencers and content creators to cover Pixel 3's forthcoming launch. The ad confirms the smartphone launch date on October 4 – the same date as Pixel 2 and First-Gen Pixel made its debut.
Google's trailer comes only days after specifications for Pixel 3 XL appeared on Geekbench, confirming that the smartphone will pack the Qualcomms Snapdragon 845 CPU together with a true 4GB RAM. Nevertheless, the smartphone's single core value of 2426 and a multi-core score of 8355 are both significantly higher than last year's Pixel 2 XL, which came in with points of 1845 and 6185.
07/30/18: The Google Pixel 3 XL has been shown in its clearest leak than confirming its "clear white" color variant and iPhone X-style clipboard.
The XDA Developers Forum user dr.guru claims that he has gotten hands on a Google Pixel 3 XL, the larger of the two flagship handles that Google is expected to launch later this year.
The legitimate images, which are said to show up Pixel 3 XL's "Clearly White" color variant, backs up earlier rumors that the smartphone will have a hack on the front to accommodate two forward-facing speakers. There will also be a big chin on the bottom of the phone, probably to accommodate Pixel's front speakers.
Images on the back of the device confirm that Google will get rid of its two-tone power design, but plans to hold on to a camera with a lens backward, although most modern smartphones have at least two.
And based on the handheld device's Fastboot screen, Pixel 3 XL will pack 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. According to dr.guru, the supposed Pixel XL 3 can not start anymore because it has been "removed by Google removed".
06/29/18: If you want to be surprised when Google reveals Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL later this year, you may want to look away now.
New makes the Android P duode based on factory CAD files and divided by MySmartPrice on behalf of reputable leaks @OnLeaks, display both Pixel 3 and 3 XL from all angles and amplify much of what we have already seen: glassbacks, single cameras, and Google's typical two-tone design.
Pixel 3 XL will sport the chunky chin and an iPhone style hack, albeit less than the clip on Apple's flagship. This is located on the top of the handset's 6.2in display, which MySpartPrice speculators will boast a 19: 9 aspect ratio.
The smaller Google Pixel 3 does not have a notch and instead stays on frames above and below its display at 5.4 in 18: 9, although these look noticeably smaller than the frames of last year's Pixel 2.
Both units will sport some dated cameras with single lenses on the back, and appear to sport two sensors forward (although MySmartPrice notes that the other module may be an ambient light sensor).
In terms of physical dimensions, Pixel 3 will measure 145.6×68.2×7.9mm, while Pixel 3 XL will measure 158×76.6×7.9mm. However, both smartphones will measure 8.6mm thin when the rear camera bump is in place.
5K does not provide much more than confirming the phone's USB-C port and SIM card slot, but MySmartPrice Note that we can also expect Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 processor to drive both devices.
Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are set to make their official, albeit incredible debut in October.
6/8/18: The The Google Pixel 3 XL has been formed in nature and confirms that it's not that exciting.
The pictures (Below), which is licensed by XDA Developer's medlem meraz9000, shows that Google's big screened Android P flagship will follow the trailing trend, with a chunky iPhone X-style cutout set at the top of the screen. This confirms a new report from Bloomberg (below) who claimed that while Pixel 3 XL will play a hack, the smaller Pixel 3 will not get the same treatment.
The XDA user also confirmed that Pixel 3 XL will have a glass back, indicating that it can offer support for wireless charging – albeit not the case with OnePlus 6 or Moto Z3 Play.
Elsewhere, things are pretty soft. Expect the Pixel 3 XL, which is expected to arrive in October, has a protruding camera with a lens rear camera, a USB-C port and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
05/31/18: Just a few days later, we got our first glimpse of Google's Pixel 3 and 3 XL, Bloomberg reports that the phones will make their official debut in October.
The report, which received its information from the usual "people familiar with the matter", claims that – as expected – the bigger Pixel 3 XL will have an almost edge-to-edge display with a top notch. This clip will not be as wide as it on iPhone X, but Bloomberg claims that it will be longer.
Pixel 3, on the other hand, will not look so different from last year's Pixel 2, and will not contain crochet or edge-to-edge designs seen on the larger, undoubtedly more expensive model.
Both Android P smartphones are tipped to sport two front cameras, similar to those seen on HTC's U12 Plus. Google will stick to single cameras on the back, according to the report, but these will probably support Bokeh effects with dual cameras thanks to optimized software.
With Google's loan features from HTC's latest flagship, it's probably not surprising to learn that the technology talent that HTC acquired from HTC earlier this year will be heavily involved in the development of the new devices. The report finds that Google is reportedly in conversation with Foxconn to handle assembly.
Although this is not the juiciest of leaks, Tipster Ice Universe claims separately that LG Display will deliver OLED panels with slots to Google. This may surprise some because LG received a lot of criticism for the OLED screen last year's Pixel 2 XL, with users complaining about a blue shade, muddy colors and grainy images.
Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will roll out in October, Bloomberg says, and will be a Verizon exclusive in the United States.
05/29/18: We still have a few months to go to Google's next gen Pixel smartphones will be official, but details about Android P smartphones have already started surfing the web.
Our first time of speculation comes with the permission of a pair of allegedly cured glass protection. Pictures of the officially selected accessories were posted to Weibo via SlashLeaks, and show that Google will be the next Android OEM to adopt an iPhone X-style notch.
While the presence of a screen shot is not surprising given that Android P comes with built-in nudity, the leak shows that only one of the Pixel 3 smartphones – the bigger Pixel 3 XL – will sport one.
And the image – which has since taken place from Weibo – shows that Pixel 3 XL's notch will be significantly less intrusive than some, and has a similar size to that found on OnePlus 6.
Not much else can be downloaded from the shady images, although both Pixel 3 and 3 XL look like sports cutouts for the surrounding light sensor and the front camera. It is possible that, like HTC, plans to double forward-facing cameras on these devices in view of the number of cuts present, but it is more likely that there is another sensor.
While we do not know much about Google's incoming smartphones, we know they're likely to debut along with a trio Pixel branded smartwatches.
The code name "Ling", "Sardine" and "Triton" are expected to contain "least" 1 GB of RAM, Bluetooth with apt-X, GPS and LTE with Voice over LTE (VoLTE) support, which means that the third-gen Apple Watch , Pixel smartwatches will also be able to make calls without being connected to a smartphone.
Health will also be a focus, with smartwatches as step tracking and a built-in heart rate monitor.
Not surprisingly, the smartwatches trio will be based on Qualcomm's incoming Wear OS chip, which reports will arrive as Snapdragon Wear 3100. According to the report, this quad-core chip will maintain the same 28nm process as the Snapdragon Wear 2100 and will use it older ARM Cortex-A7 architecture and Adreno 304 GPU. μ
