Official Pixel 3 XL press image leaks, flaunting minimalist stock wallpaper

Hey, there is something we haven't seen yet about the Google Pixel 3 XL! What is it? Well, the two-tone white version with the stock wallpaper at the front. We kid, but renowned leakster Evan Blass has provided us with the next installment of Google's pre-release saga, and this time around it is time for the eventual default screen background to shine.

It is a simple number 3 cropped a little from the sides, and that seems to be that. The press render doesn't look that convincing when we compare it to the leaked design that seems rougher around the edges and with thicker bezels than the ones we see here. 

It could all be pre-release versions that we've seen so far, of course, and the finalized design could be a bit more refined, but we doubt that will be the case this close to the announcement time. What do you think about the stock Pixel 3 XL wallpaper, yea or nay?

Google is trolling with that tall notch. For dual selfie cameras :D

And yet it sports slimmer side bezels than the Iphone XS max. Despite having a chin it also has a higher screen to body ratio over the iPhone as well. At least according to PA's comparison tool.

Wrong. The Pixel 3 XL have an 81.9% stb ratio. And even if it was higher than the XS Max, which it doesn't, the fact that it has a gigantic notch and bezels makes it look ugly when compared to almost every other modern flagship, not just the XS Max.

I will say GSM's number's are probably more correct than PA's. And sound more reasonable too. I guess we'll find out all the exact numbers in the days ahead.

I'm not a big fan of what I've seen of Google's designs this year, or last year too for that matter. But, I'm still looking forward to the press release tomorrow.

All white wallpaper with an AMOLED display... kill battery life, and slowly kill the screen...
