Leaked Front Screen For Pixel 3 And Pixel 3 XL Photos Shown Online

Leaked Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL screen protectors confirm notch and stereo speakers

Also new this year: Google has reportedly approached Foxconn, the same manufacturer that produces iPhones, to discuss building the Pixel phones.

Just like previous year, Google managed to release the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, two critically acclaimed devices that somehow did not manage to sell as well as they should have. We have no idea what the back of the phone looks like so Phone Designer modeled it after the iPhone X. That's certainly a path Google may decide to take - if you're going to copy the front of the iPhone X, why not also copy the back? According to a report, Google is planning to launch the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL with new design in October this year.

The new devices will feature dual front-facing cameras and an upgraded camera on the back. The display will also have a notch at the top. The smaller model will look similar to the Pixel 2 and won't include the notch or edge-to-edge look, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren't yet public.

United States to Impose Steel Tariffs on EU
But Macron said those "who waged bilateral trade wars. saw an increase in prices and an increase in unemployment". In terms of the NAFTA talks, the tariffs could hinder the negotiations among the North American neighbors.

Both Android P smartphones are tipped to sport two front-facing cameras, similar to those seen on HTC's U12 Plus. Instead the affect of Google's phones can be more about influencing third-party handsets than anything else. Judging by the same leaked screen protectors, it appears the regular Pixel 3 will not deploy a notch. Apparently, the Google phones will be able to offer features like sharper zooming in and the portrait bokeh effect in pictures with a single lens and optimised software. Last but not the least, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL renders based on early screen protector leaks have surfaced online giving us a first glimpse of what the upcoming flagships could looks like.

Last September, on the eve of the Pixel 2 launch, Google announced that it would acquire about 2,000 employees from the struggling handset maker HTC.

As for the notch, it's not surprising to see Google embrace the notch with its own hardware, given Android P is the first version of the OS to provide native support for cutout displays.
