Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL renders reveal design from all angles

The larger variant of the Google Pixel 3 XL looks more or less as we expected. Moreover, both the Pixel 3 and 3 XL have a single-lens camera on the back. The display of Pixel 3 XL offers an aspect ratio of 19:9. Under the hood, will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB storage, whereas the Pixel 3 XL might get 6GB of RAM.

As we head closer to the beginning of the third quarter, a few details key details regarding Google's 2018 Pixel smartphones are slowly starting to leak online. As you may have noticed in the renders that we shared with you, the Pixel 3 appears to have thinner bezels than the Pixel 2, while the Pixel 3 XL has a notch at the top.

Front-facing stereo speakers still appear to be part of the package and the 3.5mm headphone jack doesn't seem to be making a return this year, according to the same renders, as well as previous reports about Google's next Android flagships. Rest of the design remains the same as the Pixel 3. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have a reduced bezel count, which helps in keeping the dimensions of the phone similar to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. In terms of physical size, the smaller Pixel 3 will measure 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9mm. But it's bigger screen version, Pixel 3 XL, is seen sporting one.

As for the Pixel 3, its renders show the same camera features - two on the front, one on the back. What may disappoint the fans of Pixel smartphones it that the Pixel 3 XL will not be featuring dual rear cameras. The chin is also fairly thick at 8.8mm, consisting of a second speaker, thus hinting at the presence of a dual speaker setup on Pixel 3 XL as well. We hope Google will be adding a feature to hide the notch.

We'll find just how accurate these renders are later this fall, when the Pixel 3 and 3 XL are expected to debut.

Judging by the leaks, it is evident that Google is willing to play it safe and follow the established design trends. This might surprise some as LG faced a lot of criticism for the OLED display in last year's Pixel 2 XL, with users complaining of a blue hue, muddy colours and grainy images.
