Authoritative insider Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known under the pseudonym of OnLeaks, has published high-quality renderings of yet not announced smartphones Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL from Google. The devices will retain their firm design, but at the same time, they will undergo a number of notable changes.
According to my sources:
Pixel 3 ≃ 5.3-inch (no notch)
Pixel 3XL ≃ 6.2-inch (notch)

Last year’s Pixel 2 was mostly scolded because of the large frames around the screen. In the third generation, judging by the leak, Google got rid of them, offering a display with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 and a diagonal of 5.4 inches. On the reverse side of the device will not be much different from its predecessor – except that the back cover is now made of glass, with a visual division into two parts, in order to keep the brand “window” on top. The SIM card slot will move to the bottom edge of the USB Type-C connector.
As for the dimensions, Pixel 3 should measure approximately 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9-8.6 mm, while Pixel 3 XL will reach 158 x 76.6 x 7.9-8.6 mm. The double value for the thickness is relative to the slight frame around the rear camera.
The main camera for Pixel 3 will again be only one, but the front one – double. Perhaps Google implements the face scan function for quick unlocking.
Pixel 3 XL looks similar to Pixel 3, but it will have a 6.2-inch screen with a 19: 9 aspect ratio and a cutout at the top. Frontal stereo speakers will not go away anywhere. The display of Pixel 3 XL is much larger, thanks to its notch it should be around 6.2″
According to technical specifications in Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is expected eight-core processor Snapdragon 845, 4 or 6 GB of RAM and a drive for 128 or 256 GB. Presentation of new products should wait traditionally in October.
Keep in mind that there are still about 3 months left to launch the Pixel 3 and that nothing is still engraved in the stone, although the general picture seems well outlined.
