However, it's the back of the same device that may tell us what we're actually looking at: the Google Pixel 3 XL.
Google Pixel 3 XL will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor and there will be a 4GB RAM+128GB storage model. Those pictures reveal such details as an all-glass back (as is the fashion these days), a display notch, a single lens camera system that sticks out from the back ever so slightly, and interestingly a speaker grill at the bottom of the display (on the phone's "chin"). Rumors have surfaced claiming the successor to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is nearing completion by Google. To be specific, they will be called the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Google Pixel 3 internally bears the codename "Blueline", according to a Droid Life report. Physically it looks indistinguishable from the Pixel 2 XL camera arrangement.
Android P is said to feature native support for the notch, which makes logical sense on why Google is using it as part of the Pixel 3 XL.
What we're not seeing on the back, however, is glass - which, from current standards, is required for wireless charging.
On the back of the device is a regular fingerprint sensor.
Interestingly, these photos suggest that the SIM tray will be located at the bottom edge of the smartphone, right next to the USB Type-C port. The latest images come from XDA Forum and frankly, the device disappoints in terms of design.
Let me tell you about this next Google Pixel device, because I've learned a little bit you'll wanna know.
As for specs, the Pixel 3 XL is expected to feature about the same specs and performance as every other Android flagship in 2018.
Earlier Pixel phones have been released in October for the past two years, so we likely still have about five months to go before the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL hit store shelves.
