Two images were posted on XDA last night, and well, they sure line up with what we know about the Pixel 3 XL so far. Expect the Pixel 3 XL, which is expected to arrive in October, to feature a protruding single-lens rear camera, a USB-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. As also seen previously, the device will sport two selfie cameras at the top, and a front-facing speaker grille at the bottom. Perhaps one of the more common pieces of information is that the upcoming and unannounced Pixel 3 XL would proudly incorporate a notch into its front display.

From the pictures, it looks like the Pixel 3 XL could be getting a notch above the display. If you consider a different display to be different - and maybe a slightly different camera experience, too. It looks a lot like the existing Pixel 2, with a single camera, rear fingerprint reader, and a two-tone design. This means no monochrome, optical zoom, or wide angle shot options for the Pixel 3, but that hasn't stopped Google phones from being some of the best snappers in the past.

29/5/18: We've still got a few months to go until Google's next-gen Pixel smartphones become official, but details about the Android P smartphones have already started to surface online. After all, Google might run into complications at the 11th hour, foregoing wireless charging on the Pixel 3 in the end.

Google Pixel 3 XL has been in the news for quite some time now and while the world is eagerly waiting for what Google is going to offer with its new flagship, a new leak, maybe the first one with images, has reportedly confirmed that the Google Pixel 3 XL will come with an iPhone X-like notch at the top of the display. It's not the same "G" logo that appears on all of Google's Pixel phones, but as 9to5Google notes, this logo has appeared on other Pixel prototypes, which makes these images seem even more legit. No Pixel device has ever been compatible with wireless chargers, though Google's Nexus 4 from all the way back in 2012 was compatible with the Qi protocol. The phone will not have an edge-to-edge screen or notch. The device sports a glass back, which may allude to wireless charging support. A notched design for Pixel 3 XL does not come as a surprise given Android P, which is the latest operating system includes support for notch. Google is also said to be working on a third mid-segment Pixel smartphone, which is codenamed "Bonito".

This is easily the most exciting Pixel 3 leak we've seen to date, but again, it's unsubstantiated.
