Google Pixel 3 line may feature wireless charging

Google Pixel 3 line may feature wireless charging

Estimates suggest Google sold fewer than 4 million Pixel phones in all of 2017. Even among Android vendors, Google is nowhere near the top-selling phone brand despite the fact that its Pixel branded smartphones offer huge advantages over the competition.

Thanks to multiple leaks, it seems all but confirmed by Google itself that the Pixel 3 XL will have a notch.

Last year's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones are... nice. Sure they feature designs that were already outdated when they were released, but the phones themselves are terrific. This corroborates a recent report from Bloomberg (below), which claimed that while the Pixel 3 XL will sport a notch, its smaller Pixel 3 won't receive the same treatment. Also on the back, a fingerprint scanner.

The report, which got its information from the usual "people familiar with the matter", claims that - as expected - the larger Pixel 3 XL will feature an nearly edge-to-edge display with a notch at the top.

A user on XDA forums leaked the front and back of the Pixel 3 XL smartphone first, and then later in the day, posted more photos with the smartphone in view from all angles.

The side shots don't show much of the phone, but the edges are shiny instead of matte like the Pixel 2.

As for specs, the Pixel 3 XL is expected to feature about the same specs and performance as every other Android flagship in 2018. The info on the screen says the phone packs 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 128GB of storage. Here's what to expect, whether anything revolutionary is coming down the pipe, and if Google fans will be satisfied with the upcoming offering. He couldn't confirm whether wireless charging was present, but we dug through Android P beta 2 (Developer Preview 3) and found evidence for wireless charging docks, which we believe are for the Google Pixel 3, so make of that as you will.

The Pixel 3 XL will not come with a 3.5mm headset jack either, which is something we saw on the Pixel 2 series.

We are still some time away from an official announcement, but we're gradually building up a picture of what the Google Pixel 3 will be like.
