The Google Pixel 3 XL will sport an OLED panel manufactured by LG27
Specifically, the tweet confirms that the Pixel 3 XL will once again sport an OLED display. However, unlike last year’s Pixel 2 XL, the leaker claims this year’s device will boast a display notch, falling in line with recent leaks. Additionally, regarding the supplier of the panel, LG Display is understood to be the sole provider, which could mean LG will return as the manufacture of the larger smartphone. Nevertheless, it will remain to be seen who manufacturers the smaller Pixel 3. After all, last year’s Pixel 2 was manufactured by HTC and, unlike the larger variant, this year’s smaller device will sport a slightly more traditional 18:9 aspect ratio with no display notch in sight.
Despite the physical differences, the internal hardware of each device is expected to remain identical. Currently, no details have been leaked, but the Snapdragon 845 by Qualcomm will most probably be powering the duo of smartphones. This is then expected to be coupled with 6GB of RAM, and possibly 128GB of internal storage, although 64GB and 256GB variants are also possibilities. On the camera side of things, it’s unclear if Google will finally opt to include a second camera. But considering the company has so far shied away from the popular setup, 2018’s Pixel series could continue with this trend.
At this moment in time, it’s unclear when Google will choose to officially unveil its third-generation Pixel lineup. However, considering both the original Pixel series and last year’s Pixel 2 line were unveiled on October 4, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the internet giant continue with the timeline once again.
