The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL don't have LED notification lights: That's 2018 in a nutshell
Hi there. Pixel 3 /3XL doesn't come with a notification LED. Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions in the future.— Made by Google (@madebygoogle) October 9, 2018
Now, with the discovery that the new Pixels have no notification lights, Google opens up Pandora's box for other Android manufacturers to remove the undoubtedly-useful feature at their heartfelt content. With the recent trends of employing extremely dim or single-light LED notification lights (looking at you, Xiaomi), it would seem that the good ol' notification light could sadly go the way of the dodo, similarly to removable smartphone batteries, headphone jacks, mainstream expandable storage support, and meaningful innovation itself.
What will they take from us next?
