Thanks to multiple leaks, it seems all but confirmed by Google itself that the Pixel 3 XL will have a notch.

It also appears that the Pixel 3 XL may have only one rear camera.

Its bootloader indicates the device could sport 4GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

As ugly as it is to some, the notch has some small benefit for screen real estate, moving notification icons up near the front camera and out of the way. The front of the prototype seen below showcases a large notch on the top of the device. This is the next Google Pixel XL, also known as the Google Pixel 3 ... XL. While there may be many of them out there, Google needs to find a way to create a conduit for its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL to handle data and power wirelessly if it wants the phones to do so. However, the front of the Pixel 3 XL will support dual cameras. It's just that this time around, the Google Pixel 3 will be manufactured by Foxconn.

29/5/18: We've still got a few months to go until Google's next-gen Pixel smartphones become official, but details about the Android P smartphones have already started to surface online. This could be seen as a sign that Google is incorporating wireless charging, but a glass backing doesn't always confirm this. Further, there is a USB Type-C port a the bottom of the device and to the left, there's the SIM card tray. So this could possibly be our first physical look at the upcoming Google phone. The latest images come from XDA Forum and frankly, the device disappoints in terms of design. If I'm right in suspecting the Pixel range is as much about influencing other Android smartphone manufacturers as it is about selling handsets, a distinct design language suits Google's goals perfectly.

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will roll out in October, Bloomberg claims, and will be a Verizon exclusive in the US.

Tipster OnLeaks revealed on Twitter that Pixel 3 will feature a 5.3-inch screen, while the Pixel 3 XL will come with a bigger 6.2-inch display.
