Notched Pixel 3 XL Confirmed
 

 
image

Did Google's next smartphone just get outed on a random XDA Forums post? Because that's sure what it looks like just happened. The two images below were posted on XDA last night, and well, they sure line up with what we know about the Pixel 3 XL so far. The front is a pretty dead-on match for that screen protector leak, and the rear definitely looks like a subtle evolution of the existing phone's design. There appears to be a new sensor to the right of the rear camera module, and the flash has been pushed out slightly to accommodate it.

That funny logo on the back is likely just an engineering watermark to obfuscate the prototype, but the codename 'crosshatch' in the bootloader is correct based upon what we know. We've been unable to verify the authenticity of these images with our own sources, so take them for what you will, but I'd be pretty surprised if we're not looking at Google's next phone here.

Other things that can be gleaned from the images? That's quite a substantial chin on the screen which, yuck, but it does look like we're keeping the stereo front-facing speakers (the edge of the bottom speaker is just barely visible). There are two front-facing cameras and I, for one, am hoping this is a sign of a Google-developed version of Face ID for secure unlocking. Existing face unlock methods on Android are all not considered secure enough for things like mobile payments, but given we know support for secure face unlock is coming to the OS, I wouldn't be surprised to see Google debut such a feature on its next smartphones.

The fact that Google is sticking with a single rear camera is interesting - I'd personally welcome a telephoto-style lens to augment the capabilities of the primary camera, though given the Pixel 2's wide advantage in still images, I bet Google's still going to find ways to wow us with a single camera on the new phone.

The type of people who buy the Pixel phones are known notch haters. They better have a great deal with the carrier companies and aggressive marketing this go round.

Dammit, I really do not like the notch, and I was holding out for the pixel 3. And based on the back, it looks like it won't have wireless charging. Very disappointing.

Wrong. A notch is a dumb fu*kin design and I won't support it just because it's Google. I don't ever want a phone that looks like a car windshield

Pixel/Android users aren't nearly as loyal as iPhone users because of the amount choices available. If you want the newest iOS device, you have no choice but to get an iPhone. If you want the newest Android device, you can buy LG/Sony/HTC/Samsung/OnePlus and others, and all of these companies have multiple phones

5 of my last 6 Android phones have been Pixels/Nexus, but they won't be getting a dime from me if this sh*t is real with the notch. I'll support whatever company makes a great phone without a notch, or I'll save my money and wait for the notch fad to die.

i hate the notch, hated it when i saw it on the iphone x, hated it when corny android handset makers started jumping on the notch bandwagon....but i still will be team pixel 3 xl come november, i guess i'll just have to take my L and get over it.

as long as it has a much better screen than last year, and a 256gb option, that pure android experience is worth it..

guess im a notch guy now, smh...i feel like the pros of the phone outweigh my hate for the notch

Because the vast majority of Galaxy owners don't want stock Android. Only nerds and tech geeks want a plain device from Samsung.

Absolutely no reason to have the notch if you're going to have a bar that makes it invisible.

those galaxy nexus and google play edition phones were great. the only thing i like from the current galaxy line is the infinity display. other than that most samsung phones dont hold up well after 8mos-1yr of daily use. processer and battery are noticeably worse. then that touchwiz is complete trash compared to stock. just give me a pixel XL with an infinity display!

@ @ @ are your Galaxies (S8+/S9+/Note 8/etc) not "holding up well?" Is the "processor and battery noticeable worse?" Do you prefer plain Android over Samsung Experience UI? To me this sounds like the talk of someone who probably hasn't owned a Galaxy since the Note 4.

the thought process of android lovers.

blah blah blah apple copied android

blah blah blah android jumping on bandwagon of apple but im still riding

man yall fu*king lame.

of course android was going to do it. of course you were going to buy it

but when apple fans take this stance, the android lovers want to make jokes out of it.

My n*gga it's literally what Androids we're founded on...customization

Don't want the notch go get a Galaxy or a LG Huawei or whatever...but you know it won't be as good as a PURE Google device

Yet MKBHD ranked the Galaxy Note 8 as 2017's overall best phone.
