Google Pixel 3 & Pixel 3 XL show up in another image; still no sign of Pixel Ultra

Google Pixel 3 & Pixel 3 XL show up in another image; still no sign of Pixel Ultra
The concept of smartphone leaks is certainly nothing new, but the level of leaks surrounding the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL is more or less unheard of – in the past month alone we have covered around 15 leaks. Today is unsurprisingly no exception to this constant stream, with the latest image of both flagship devices arriving courtesy of notorious tipster Evan Blass.

At this point, almost everything about Google’s next devices has been revealed so there isn’t really any new information to share. After all, as revealed by countless leaks before, the smaller Pixel 3 boasts an 18:9 display complete with rather thick bezels, and the large Pixel 3 XL includes a thick bottom bezel and a massive notch above the display. Regardless of the external design, though, both devices sport a dual-camera selfie setup and stereo speakers.

Moving on to the spec sheet, the duo is set to ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 on the inside along with 4GB of RAM. Presumably, Google will also offer a variety of storage options including 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB models. Unfortunately, these will not be expandable via microSD. When it comes to the battery side of things, the smaller Pixel 3 is set to boast a very basic 2,915mAh juice pack, while the Pixel 3 XL will make use of a slightly larger 3,430mAh one. In both cases, Quick Charge and wireless charging are set to be supported. Lastly, rounding out both packages will be stock Android 9.0 Pie straight out of the box.

As of today, there are still over two weeks to go before the official Pixel 3 unveiling, so it’ll certainly be interesting to see how many more leaks can be squeezed in ahead of the announcement. In the meantime, however, it may be time for Google to start thinking about talking to its team of employees about the situation before moving forward with any other products it may have in the pipeline.

Honestly, I wasn't here for this "game" Google was playing with these leaks. If the Pixel 3XL is being released like that an there's no Ultra, then Google is gonna lose sales. No matter how quick the phone is and how prompt the updates are.

You stop worrying about google sales ; they have plenty money. Plus google gives us one without a notch.

I actually like the Pixel 3 look and if it has everything the XL has I can only imagine it’s going to be the sales king out of the two. As long as they offer it for around $700-800. I may check it out.

People gotta stop pushing the “Pixel Ultra” nonsense. Google simply doesn’t have the logistical capacity or know how to push three phones in a single cycle. I’m dead serious... they had trouble getting the Pixel one into people’s hands and they only sold what, three million of them? Can you imagine the s**tshow that would take place if they tried to release a product with the description of the Pixel Ultra? You wouldn’t get the phone until next March IF you’re lucky.

They will be fired, that is why there were all the leaks. I guess you havent heard the news. Google always had 2 design teams and they are having to cut it down to 1 since sales of the pixel 2 were so low. So the team that is being cut purposely leaked everything

Can we put the conspiracy theories about Google tricking us finally down to rest because they're the dumbest thing I've read all year and I'm honestly tired. Why would Google create hype with one of the worst notch bearing phone designs in this year only for the people who are in the demographic of being interested in tech and smartphones in particular... which is probably quite small and won't cause a huge stir anyway. It just makes no sense for me to begin with ?

Wow that Pixel 3 looks really old fashioned now. Giant forehead and chin. Google obviously not got the memo that we now want full-screen phones.

That definitely is not "giant" still a 18:9 aspect ratio with slim top and bottom bezels.

If we keep talking about the pixel ultra Google will give it to us. Nobody wants this pos notched pixel with 4gb of Ram and a small battery.
