As usual, Google is already preparing to announce its 2018 flagships, traditionally launching in early October. However, we cannot wait for the long three months to know what the company is cooking up as some renders are already flying around us.
The images and video confirm that the Google Pixel 3 will feature a normal forehead, while the Pixel 3XL variant will have the notorious notch.
Both devices are also pictured with only one camera on the back, suggesting Google has refused to join the trend of dual and triple cameras.

The Google Pixel 3 will measure 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9 mm. It is expected to have a 5.4” screen with tall 18:9 ratio. There are three holes next to the earpiece, most likely for a camera, proximity sensor and LED notification light, although it might also be a dual selfie setup.
Google Pixel 3 XL
The Google Pixel 3 XL will stand at 158 x 76.76 x 7.9 mm, but along with the camera bump the thickness goes up to 8.6 mm. The screen will measure 6.2” in diagonal and the notch between the so-called “horns” will house the very same camera and sensor as the Pixel 3.
Both handsets are expected to come with Snapdragon 845 chipset and Android P out of the box. Last year’s Pixel 2 series had an OLED panel on both devices, so its safe to assume the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will use the same type of screens.
Both the inaugural Pixel and the Pixel 2 series were announced on October 4, so you better save the date for the Pixel 3 launch as well.
