Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL leak out entirely in new 360-degree renders

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL leak out entirely in new 360-degree renders
Following our own renders earlier this month that revealed what the upcoming Google Pixel 3 line could look like, new 360-degree renders courtesy of Steve Hemmerstoffer and MySmartPrice have just been published, revealing the entire design of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

Starting off with the smaller model, the smartphone actually resembles last year’s Pixel 2 XL quite closely thanks to the presence of a tall 18:9 display panel and front-facing stereo speakers. Unlike last year’s offering, however, Google has now included two front-facing cameras up front which will likely improve depth sensing. This same setup is also included on the larger Pixel 3 XL, the only difference being the presence of a taller 19:9 display aspect ratio that boasts a notch up top. Now, moving on to the rear, the two devices sport identical designs, with the renders confirming a look that simply refines the one seen on the Pixel 2 series. This means a single rear camera lens is once again present in the top left corner along with a dual-tone LED flash that is placed slightly to the right. Additionally, the two-tone panel makes a return, although this time the metal portion is rumored to have been replaced by a frosted glass section that will presumably allow for the integration of wireless charging

In regards to actual details, the regular Pixel 3 looks set to boast a display that sits at 5.4-inches in size, while the larger Pixel 3 XL will increase this to 6.2-inches. However, despite the bigger panels when compared to last year’s devices, both models actually look set to match the dimensions of their predecessors, which boasted displays of 5-inches and 6-inches respectively. 

Taking a look at the internal side of things, no exact details have been confirmed as of yet, although both smartphones should be expected to ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 on the inside, just like the upcoming Nokia 9. In addition, 4GB of RAM is a possibility inside of the regular variant, while the larger offering is expected to gain access to 6GB of RAM. In either case, though, both should ship with either 128 or 256GB of internal storage.

For those interested in Google’s next smartphone duo, the Pixel 3 series is expected to follow in the footsteps of the original Pixel line and last year’s Pixel 2 devices by being announced at Google’s annual hardware event which will likely take place October 4.

I didn't think Google could make the new Pixels uglier than last year, but they have outdone themselves and succeeded !

There's little to add to this really. It boggles the mind the price they're going to ask for these.

3 is not as ugly as 2. But 3XL is even worse than 2XL

You know what great innovation about Pixel smartphones since Pixel 2 series was 3 Year of software updates in android.This is only thing want to make me pay full price of flagship phones over any other flagships smartphones out there with 2 year softwares updates.Since Google Phone got everything equal to apple iphones offering so it worth price but Pixel 3xl is ugly with notch so settle with pixel 2,2xl and pixel 3 since it got project treble support enable.

I do like the Pixel 3, as it doesn't have a notch and generally just copies Samsung's infinity design, but i'm kind of surprised that the bezels aren't any thinner. The Pixel 3 XL is just yet another smartphone with a notch, which has never been a good looking design and this one isn't either.

Pixel 3 XL isn't "just another phone with a notch". It's a phone with a GIANT notch!

The chin makes sense because it houses the second front facing stereo speaker.

While your second statement is true, how do Pixel 3 copies Samsung's infinity design?

It's just his Samsung bias.

It looks like the LG G6, but in his mind, everyone copies Samsung.

I said this a single time now, and yet you're acting like i'm saying everyone is copying Samsung? I'm mostly always saying on this forum that Samsung has a very unique and beautiful design, as it's one of the few brands that haven't used an ugly notch in their design. Lastly, the Pixel 3 looks more like the Galaxy S8/S9: than the LG G6: The Pixel 3 has curving glass, while the LG G6 doesn't, as it is a very flat front. The S8 does have curving glass. Additionally, the LG G6 has significant side bezels, while the Galaxy S8/S9 and Pixel 3 doesn't have any significant side bezels. Having no side bezels has always been a major part of Samsung's infinity displays.

Look at the Pixel 3 front (The one without the notch), and then look at this picture of the Galaxy S8: Do you honestly not think that they look very similar? Unlike essentially every other phone, they don't have an ugly notch. It has curved glass on the sides. It has almost no side-bezels, which has always been one of the major design aspects of Samsung's infinity displays. It also has symmetrical top and bottom bezels, which are made completely black.

The screen is flat. Not copying Samsung, try again.

46. TechSceptic

The front is curved, the side-bezels are very thin (Infinity display key point). There is no notch. The top and bottom bezels are present, but they're small and symmetrical. If this isn't copying Samsung, then none of the smartphones with a notch is copying Apple, especially since Apple wasn't even the first ones to create a notch design. So if anything, people are copying Essential/Sharp. Try again.

Actually the bezels on Pixel 3 are thinner. You get similar dimension as Pixel 2 145.6mm, but with more screen 5.4" and smaller width.

I'm afraid that it will be taller, since the bezel on top and bottom are huge and the screen is longer.

Ugliness at its peak......Only thing I can think of is how Google will be ripping people off 900 USD for this ugly Abomination and trying to pose as an iPhone X 'competitor'. Only thing it has is the camera software,but now they cut costs by avoiding 2nd camera even for telephoto or wideangle... Such a shame that people buy this.

The Pixel 3 will not be as expensive as the 2, because iPhone 9 will not be as expensive as iPhone 8.

I HATE THIS DESIGN. However I will be purchasing for the software experience just as I did with last years pixel and my IPhone X (eks). Toying with the idea of buying anothe Pixl 2 xl (should have never sold it). Anyone want a 256gb IPhone X????

The dual material backs ruins the phone for my tastes. It's only cosmetic and will be hidden in a case but that is the aspect I have a hard time overlooking. Also being somewhat of an oddity I also prefer ltps IPS displays way more so than oleds. The phone's look solid, just not for me this year.

The Pixel XL looks so ugly with that notch. The smaller one looks OK to me.
