If you were hoping that the Pixel 3 XL would not come with a top-notch, then we are sorry, but we will have to shatter your dreams. It is official, Google just made the move to start using this already popular design. Now, saying that it is popular does not mean that it is well received by every user. There are a lot of controversial views on this matter but we will not go into detail about them. Besides the top notch, the image also showed that Pixel 3 XL will have a chin at the bottom.
Google Pixel 3 XL Dual-Camera Setup
We are just itching to see Google finally start to use dual cameras with their smartphones. Almost every other brand has decided to use it and adapt it in some way that would fit their phone designs. However, Google seems to stick to tradition and the tech giant has openly voiced that their one rear camera works just as well as the dual cameras from other smartphones.
With this prototype image we can see that Google decided to add dual cameras, but this time they are on the front of the device. The notch looks to hide two lenses, which would make the Pixel 3 XL the first smartphone created by Google to come with two cameras, even if they are not on the back.
More about the prototype
The prototype has been called “crosshatch” and we may also see it come with wireless charging. The flagship smartphone is said to come in a variant which will have 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The processor is most certainly going to be the Snapdragon 845 SoC.
When Google released Pixel 2 they decided to forgo adding the headphone jack. This move made fans have some mixed feelings on the device, with some hoping that the tech giant might remedy their small mistake with the Pixel 3 series. Well, tough luck. Looks like Google will stick with its decision since from the photos that we got we are not seeing any headphone jack.
Design and release date
Before you start to get your hopes up and think that this is the official design for the Pixel 3 XL we would like to remind you that what we have right now is only a prototype and that Google might have changed a lot of things about it in the meantime. We will have to wait until October to hear an official announcement from the company.
