Google Pixel 3 Smartphone Could Arrive In October: Google Pixel 2 XL Black (3)
Google Pixel 2 XL - How Much Will The Design Change On The Google Pixel 3?


The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones will be available from October, reports Bloomberg

As we've seen on many larger smartphones, such as the iPhone X and Huawei P20 Pro, the Pixel 3 XL is rumoured to have an almost edge-to-edge design with just the familiar top-notch that usually houses a camera and the thicker bottom bezel adding more phone and a little bit less screen. Bloomberg says that their source said that the top-notch won't be as wide as the one found on the iPhone X but it will be 'taller' which, we're not quite sure how to interpret this currently, unless it means it's thinner so takes up less room width-wise but will eat into the screen more from the top? (Thoughts welcomed below). 

As for the smaller Pixel 3, this won't have the edge-to-edge look and a notch won't cut into the screen from the top either. 

The built-in rear camera design will still feature just a single lens which goes against the grain of adding dual or even triple lenses on rear smartphone cameras. However, reports suggest that the XL version will have two front-facing cameras and the single lens that is built into the rear will be upgraded.

To give Android fans more of an idea of how the Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 may look, a Reddit user has based a concept drawing on, what are meant to be, leaked photos of the Pixel 3 XL screen protector which you can see below.

If the new Pixel smartphones do arrive in October, they'll be hitting stores not long after Apple will have announced their iPhone upgrades which usually arrive in September.
