Google’s leaky ship continues with even more Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL renders

There’s pretty much no way to slice it and make it sound better, but Google has utterly failed to keep anything secret about their Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. This is probably the most leaked phone that we’ve dealt with in recent memory, and somehow we’re still seeing more things surface ahead of the official unveiling. It’ll also probably throw some cold water on the rumor of Google intentionally misleading us with a fake Pixel 3 XL leak, too.

This time we’re getting a good look at the front and back of both the smaller and larger versions of the device, complete with Google’s signature fabric case. It’s a black design with dark gray case, and honestly looks pretty good, although that highly controversial XL notch is still here.

Otherwise, there’s very little to pull from this leak that we don’t already know. Google is sticking with the single camera design, they’re not interested in aggressively shrinking the bezels, and the fingerprint scanner is still on the back. The search bar has a new Google Assistant icon, which is interesting but also might come to other devices later anyway.

On the Pixel 3 event on October 9th we’re expecting both devices to launch with a Snapdragon 845, 4GB of  RAM, Android Pie, and hopefully wireless charging.

Maybe there’s something that Google’s managed to keep under wraps that will surprise us, but I’m really not holding my breath at this point.

    worst design of 2018. Huge miss even though they have the best camera.

    I don’t know which is uglier, the notch on the Pixel XL3 or the Lexus “Predator” grill.

    Why is it that Google doesn’t include a flash for the front camera with the Pixel phones? They increase the number of cameras on the Pixel 3, but still no flash!?!
