Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL: how big are they and how do they compare to the previous models?

Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL: how big are they and how do they compare to the previous models?
With the official reveal of the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL less than a month away, there's pretty much no surprises left in store about Google's latest flagship phones. We've already seen the Pixel 3 XL in a series of completely revealing hands-on photos, not to mention the unboxing video, and though the smaller model hasn't been "enjoying" quite as high of a popularity as its bigger brother, we've managed to glean quite a bit of info about it as well.

As is usual with new smartphone releases, we've seen some CAD drawings of both the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, so we've got a pretty good idea as to how big they will be. Our information seems to be in line with claims from other reliable sources, such as notorious tipster @OnLeaks. The only question that's left is how big will be the screen of the Google Pixel 3 XL, but we'll get to this as well.


The Google Pixel 3 will have almost the same footprint as the Pixel 2, though it will bump screen size from 5 inches up to 5.4 inches. Of course, the display will be taller as well, with a likely aspect ratio of 18:9.

Will the Google Pixel 3 XL really have a 6.7" screen?



The Google Pixel 3 XL is heavily rumored to retain the dimensions of its predecessor, though there's conflicting information about its display. If the Google Pixel 3 XL is the same size as the Pixel 2 XL (give or take a millimeter or a fraction thereof), this puts its display at about 6.4 inches (not accounting for the rounded corners). However, more recent reports claim that the Pixel 3 XL will sport a massive 6.7-inch display, which would make its footprint noticeably bigger than that of its predecessor.

Would you rather if the Pixel 3 XL were slightly smaller, or is it all about that bigger screen? Tell us in the comments below!
