Google Pixel is among the few flagship smartphones that worths their price and deserve a yearly wait for the upgrade. However, this year’s wait is about to get over if we are right The Mountain View company launches the upgrade of its flagship smartphone every year. 2018 belongs to Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL which has already been confirmed from many leaks including the AOSP (Android open Source Project).

Recently the smartphone makers have changed the mobile industry dimensions with new trends and technology. Apple launched iPhone X to introduce us to the future with a big screen and facial authentication system. Now, it's time for Google to take a step further in order to claim its position in the industry. Only Google Pixel holds that much of strength to start a new trend with the help of its powerful camera and support for the latest technology. On the basis of rumors and leaks, we have jotted down the below details on the device.


Initially, there were rumors that the Google Pixel 3XL would come with a full-screen display. Afterward, there were many speculations on how Google will achieve it. Will Google go for a notch display or look out for any other approach like Oppo using a motorized camera in Find X? After the Android P beta launch, some of the developers found a full-screen phone in an illustration of an OS feature, and they claimed it to be the Google Pixel 3XL. This was supported by the previous act of Google, where it accidentally revealed Pixel 2XL in Android Oreo beta last year. However, the claim was based only on the assumption so we can't be sure about it.

Moreover, some of the rumors also suggest that the Google Pixel 3XL will have 97% screen to body ratio and will attain it using a Hybrid Display with a transparent + traditional panel, and the front camera will be under the display along with the fingerprint sensor.

What we believe

Google may be looking for a breakthrough here, but the things mentioned above aren't possible according to us. We expect Google to cut down the bezel of the phone further and provide a more prominent display inside the same shell. However, we don't expect the company to remove the front camera or sensors like Oppo Find X. Besides, the Google Pixel 3XL also have a speaker at the bottom of the screen which is quite unlike to be removed by Google Recently, there were some images of Pixel 3 that came out to the surface showing the prototype of the phone that looked similar to Pixel 2XL, and that was nothing like the full-screen front smartphone. However, the leaked images also contained a prototype which is also unauthentic so we aren’t sure about it.


In order to compete with Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and iPhone X, Google will be adding  next-generation hardware support in pixel 3XL. Pixel 2XL came with a 6-inch P-OLED display with full HD resolution support. So, Pixel 3XL is expected to come with a bigger AMOLED display capable of offering QHD+ resolution to the users. Besides, there could be a notch in the display to provide the phone a 19:9 aspect ratio.


Talking about the power of the phone we expect Google Pixel 3XL to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset that will be coupled with an octa-core (2.45GHz Quad core, Kryo along and 1.9GHz Quad-core Kryo) processor. The processing unit of the device will be supported by a 6/8GB RAM and 128/256GB of internal storage. The Google Pixel 3XL camera could possess a dual lens at the rear and a selfie booster in front. However, there are some rumors that suggest, Google may add two camera sensors at the front. That is possible considering the ongoing trend of bokeh effect provided by the secondary lens. The rear dual camera will come with 12MP + 8MP lenses that will be offering HDR, Panorama, and slow-Mo feature. The front camera will have an 8MP sensor that will be able to capture sharp images for the users.

All the above-mentioned Pixel 3XL specifications are based on leaks and rumours that we have received till date, and there is no confirmation about them.

As Android P beta is already available for some of the phones, so it is confirmed that the Google Pixel 3XL will be first Android P preinstalled device this year.


  • There could be an in-display fingerprint sensor

  • Pixel 3XL is expected to come with the facial scanning system

  • Customizable Active Edge similar to HTC’s Sense technology

Google Pixel 3XL Price And Release Date

There is no official information about the launch date of Pixel 3XL yet. According to us, the Pixel 3XL will be launched in October, and we are not guessing it. Google launched Pixel & Pixel XL in October 2016 and Pixel 2 & Pixel 2 XL exactly one year later. So, we are expecting Pixel 3XL to come out of shadows in the coming October. The Pixel 2XL starts at $849 and considering the unconfirmed upcoming upgrades we expect the Pixel 3XL price to lie between $1,130 to $1,188.
