Yesterday we saw for the first time two photographs of a prototype of what will be the Google Pixel 3 XL. This model had already been seen in conceptual images and could also be glimpsed thanks to some accessories that had leaked ahead of time.
New images with more details and from more points of view confirm some of the data we knew and show new ones.
It seems that this model will differ from the previous one, especially in the form of the screen and the frames since in many other things they will be the same.
Notch and frame reduction confirmed
The Pixel 3 XL will be a mobile with a large screen, with notch at the top and with frames much more content than the Pixel 2 XL.
The end of rectangular mobile screens: all about the notch
We analyze in depth the latest fashion we have seen in smartphones, notch, notch or bangs that brings us to the end of rectangular screens.
However, it seems that it will also lack identity in the front, except for the presence of the two front speakers, something that partly justifies the wider width of the lower side.
Simple camera and fingerprint sensor on the back
Although its rivals have opted to use double and triple cameras, Google showed in 2017 that it is not necessary to do so to have one of the best cameras of the moment. So much so that the Pixel 2 XL is still a reference and for many the best smartphone in this section.
The Pixel 3 XL maintains that idea and bets on a single sensor behind. The design is also maintained with the upper glass area and the fingerprint sensor under it, in the metal area. It seems that I will not use the on-screen sensor that brands such as Vivo and Xiaomi have already implemented.
USB C connector and without 3.5 mm jack
As for ports we have no surprises. Google is committed to USB C in terms of charging and data but also in audio and that is that the 3.5 mm jack will not be available.
Nothing surprising but it is something we can confirm with the new leaked prototype photos. As always, keep in mind that this is a prototype, and that there is still no guarantee that there will be no change.
