What the Pixel 3 leaks tell us about Google's hardware strategy

Google Pixel 3 XL images reportedly leak out, show off a notch

Leaked images of Google Pixel 3 XL surface online

Images of the official-looking accessories were posted to Weibo, via SlashLeaks, and show that Google will be the next Android OEM to adopt an iPhone X-style notch. 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. It looks a lot like the existing Pixel 2, with a single camera, rear fingerprint reader, and a two-tone design. After all, Google might run into complications at the 11th hour, foregoing wireless charging on the Pixel 3 in the end. It looks like the notch has a smaller width than the iPhone X, but it does look to be much deeper. There's a glossy component at the top, with a matte surface below and a large single-lens rear camera with a flash and sensors alongside it. The Pixel 3 XL will not come with a 3.5mm headset jack either, which is something we saw on the Pixel 2 series. Since acquiring HTC engineers involved in the making of the Pixel 2 as well as intellectual property rights from HTC, it seems like Google has what they need to continue implementing the Pixel 2's squeeze feature in future smartphones.

Google Pixel 3 will reportedly sport a design similar to that of its predecessor Pixel 2. He claims that when he squeezed the phones frame, it vibrated – which clearly indicates the presence of the Active Edge feature. The next-generation Pixel phone also has an all-glass back, so it's likely we'll get wireless charging support as well - so far OnePlus is the only company that switched to an all-glass back for no good reason at all.

Curry is often knocked for not being a prototypical, drive-and-kick point guard, but in this series, he has been one. If the Warriors bring their "B" game - as they did in Game 1 - they will fall in Cleveland.


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. Even among Android vendors, Google is nowhere near the top-selling phone brand despite the fact that its Pixel branded smartphones offer huge advantages over the competition.
