Google Pixel 3 XL smiles for the camera

Since there's a full retail box, it looks like the Pixel 3 XL is ready to go to market very soon. The back of the phone looks similar to that of the Pixel 2 XL though, with a metal and glass cover and a single-lens camera.

What do you think about this leak? The images show the Pixel 3 XL switched on and in working condition, lending weight to its legitimacy.

It seems the Pixel 3 will have the same problem, according to a bunch of early photos published by

The notch contains what appears to be some sensors, a front-facing camera, and an earpiece.

In the end, it all comes down to the price and while Pixel 3 XL might not get any design praises, with the right price it could end up to be the choice of many buyers. But does the notch feel a bit tall to anyone else? Second, the notch takes up so much horizontal space that there's only room for three notification icons in the status bar. On the front we can see information pertaining to the device, which is running Android 9 Pie. In the picture, you can see Android 9 Pie's gesture navigation is turned on, which Google recently told Android Central would be the default for Pixels going forward. We see a USB-C cable, USB adapter, 3.5mm adapter, and a pair of headphones that look a lot like the Pixel Buds with a USB-C connector.

The addition would be noteworthy; finding USB-C headphones isn't exactly easy, as competing audio standards have made it hard for manufacturers to support devices with USB-C ports in lieu of 3.5mm headphone jacks. In-box accessories can vary from country to country, so if you are that interested in pack-in Google headphones, make sure they come with the version shipping in your territory.
