Mystery logo on back of Pixel 3 XL prototype belongs to Google

Some of you might have noticed a mystery logo on the back of the Google Pixel 3 XL prototype we showed you earlier today. On the released Pixel and Pixel 2 models, that spot is where you will find Google's iconic "G" logo. But far from indicating that the prototype is a fake, it actually proves that the device did indeed come from Google. Whether the final design looks the same, that is another matter.
As it turns out, that strange logo (which resembles a stylized "E" looking in a mirror) actually belongs to Google! As proof, we can look at a photo from Google's internal blog called The Keyword. Accompanying a story published earlier this year about Google's design team, is a photo showing early versions and prototypes of certain Google devices. In the corner appears a Google Pixel 2 prototype in a color that appears similar to the popular "Kinda Blue." And if you look at the back of the prototype, you'll see a logo quite similar to one on the Pixel 3 XL prototype. The only difference is the lack of a gap on the bottom of the logo found on the unfinished Pixel 2.
This should be enough proof to believe that the Pixel 3 XL seen in the photos we've passed along to you the last couple of days, is legitimate. And besides the logo, the screen clearly mentions "crosshatch," which is one of three fish-related codenames that the new Pixel models have been given. As we pointed out yesterday, if the Pixel 3 XL is crosshatch, and the mid-range unit coming early next year is "bonito," the Pixel 3 is "blueline."

The ugliest flagship of all time. Up there with the GS5 and the LG G5

Wtf is that crap that Only Apple could achieve the notch right. Give us all a break here. Such garbage, as if Apple got it right. If Apple got it right, then there would be no need to FORCE it's developers to support the iPhone X notch. Why does Apple have to FORCE it's developers to support the iPhone X notch, because there isn't enough screen space on either side of the iPhone X notch. So please stop spreading those lies around that only Apple got it right, because that is so blatantly not true. Which means you are either a liar, or you love Apple so much you bash others to pump up Apple.

are you seriously praising the notch? properly sized? like properly not allowing the user to see the battery percentage? you are a blind idiot.... every phone with a notch is stupid in my opinion.... some less than others... I also dislike curved displays from Samsung... an extremely unnecessary gimmick
