Well before the expected launch of Pixel 3 in October, Google has accidentally revealed. In one of the pictures posted by XDA Forums’ member meraz9000, Apple-like ‘notch’ at the top of the phone can easily be seen. The XDA developer grabbed a prototype of Pixel 3 XL which was confirmed from the Google’s end.

To get more information about the same, XDA developers dug deep into Android P beta code and learned about Active Edge commands for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL with codenames as Crosshatch and Blueline respectively.

Google New Update

Apple popularized the notch feature by embedding it in iPhone X. The notch adds up some extra space at the top of the screen. The feature was swiftly followed by other smartphone manufacturers like LG, OnePlus, Huawei, and Asus.

On the same line as that of Pixel 2, Google is anticipated to launch its next flagship device with a single camera at the back. Although many of the smartphone manufacturers are sticking with dual camera setup but, Google scored more with its single camera setup on Pixel 2. This clearly indicated Google’s credence on the single-camera configuration. The Pixel 3 camera will be integrated with AI camera technology that will offer better picture clarity.

The wireless charging was one of the essential elements that was missing in the aluminum and glass mixed back panels of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. But in the leaked pictures, the full glass back of Pixel 3 is a definite hint of wireless charging. The need of this features feels more when Google’s other rivals like Apple and Samsung have already added this feature in their flagship devices.

Another feature that will be the part of Pixel 3 is the fingerprint sensor, which is also clearly visible at the back of the device. The usual top-third position is best for optimal reachability. Google may omit 3.5mm headphone jack from its new device but in return, may offer USB type C to 3.5mm adapter in the box.

The bright spot over Pixel 3 will be the next version of Google's Android OS, which is all about gesture navigation. So, Google will be all geared up to integrate its next flagship device with its latest OS.
