Last week we learned a lot about the size of the Pixel 3 series smartphones that Google is working on. Now, these leaks did not come from an official source, so many of the people that talked about them warned fans to take all of this with a grain of salt. But now it seems that Google may have made a tiny mistake by unknowingly confirming the size of their latest devices. How did that happen? Read more to find out.
How did the confirmed leak occur
XDA Forums leaked a number of images which showed an astounding 6.2-inch Pixel 3 XL. The renders looked very realistic, but that did not mean that they were indeed the truth, since many people can create fake official looking renders. However, the validity of the information was confirmed by 9to5Google. This website decided to look back on a January interview posted on Google’s blog.
This interview featured Ivy Ross, the tech giant’s VP of hardware design. He talked about the design process for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. During the interview, numerous amounts of prototypes were revealed by Ross. The keen eye of 9to5Google did not miss the fact that before these prototypes got the Google logo, they had the logo that was found on XDA’s images.
So, through a simple deduction, we can understand that the images from XDA Forums are indeed reality. Sorry, Google, we know that you wanted to keep things as much of a secret as possible, but you can never escape the detective powers of the internet.
Google Pixel 3 XL Notch
Depending on whether you like the notch design or not, you will respond differently to the fact that the Pixel 3 Xl will have one. And now it is official. Google has finally jumped on the bandwagon of Android tech companies who decided to borrow Apple’s notch design and use it for their new releases. If you really hate the notch, then you may want to stick with the Pixel 3, which will be notch-less.
The image showed that the Pixel 3 XL only has one rear camera but the double front facing cameras. Now, this is rather odd, but since it is an early prototype image, things could still change. It would not be the end of the world if Google decided to stick with one rear camera. They boasted the fact that their one camera can take pictures just as good as other dual camera setups on the market.
