Just last week we got an in-the-flesh view of the almighty notch on the Pixel 3 XL via a Canadian reader of Mobile Syrup. Today another few pictures of one in the wild in Canada have surfaced.
Mobile Syrup have once again managed to get their hands on pictures of a Pixel 3 XL being used in the wild, this time on a train in Toronto. This time there obtained not just a view of the front of the phone but also a view of the back of the phone.
This time the phone is without a case which reveals the back of the phone which looks awfully familiar to the Pixel 2 XL rear. Once again the notch is present with dual front-facing cameras. The size of the status bar looks to be massive to ensure it incorporates the notch. I’m not entirely sure of Google’s design aesthetics here — other companies have had much smaller notches and have been able to hide it easier. Hopefully the notch is so big for a really awesome reason such as some amazing dual front-facing camera functionality.
With only a month or so until the Google Pixel 3 announcement you can be sure there will be more leaks and rumours before then. Do you think that any more hardware leaks will make a difference? Surely the Pixel phones are all about the software rather than ground-breaking hardware?
