First off, like most 2018 phones, the Pixel phones will have a notch - the XL version at least. Although there is no way to confirm the photos are indeed legitimate, all of the images appear to match up to previous rumors.
Interestingly, the Pixel 3 is also shown to be carrying two front facing cameras with both being of 8-megapixel resolution.
It is unclear why Google is adding two cameras on the front. Although the bezels are not the smallest we have seen on phones with notch-less 18:9 displays. That again has led experts to believe the camera could be powering a new generation facial recognition feature, besides providing for a more accurate selfie shot in varying lighting conditions as well.
The Pixel 3 looks good and might be favorite of the two since it doesn't have a notch.
The images of the leaked Pixel 3 are accompanied by a few screenshots that give hardware details of the phone. Some of the Pixel 3 XL units were listed as Design Validation Testing (DVT) while others were Engineering Validation Testing (EVT). Along with a slew of exciting watches from Skagen, Diesel, and Casio at IFA this week, Google also announced a brand-new UI for Wear OS that puts a big emphasis on the Assistant and the revamped Google Fit. Russian publication Mobile Review claims the Google Pixel 3 phone would start at $649 and the Pixel 3 XL will have a starting price of $749.
After Apple's iPhone event on September 12, the next flagship smartphone event to look forward to will be Google's.
As noted earlier, Google is expected to launch the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL at an event in NY on October 9.
