Google Pixel 3 XL Leaks - Display Size Was Just Confirmed

Google Pixel 3 XL Leaks - Display Size Was Just Confirmed

There has been quite a bit of scuttlebutt surrounding what the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will look like when they ship later this year and there have already been some questionable leaks that claim to show what we can expect when that happens.

According to the person who leaked the Pixel 3 XL images, he activated Active Edge on the smartphone. The company recently released Beta 2 version (Developer Preview 3) of new Android P Beta for the Pixel smartphones featuring several tweaks and bug fixes. While these might not exactly be 100% confirmation, new evidence suggests that the Google Pixel 3 might at least have these two features, the latter of which has been a recent point of contention. In a similar fashion, Google seems to be once again planning on following Apple's footsteps by adopting a notch display design for its upcoming Pixel 3 series. This is, according to speculation, meant to support dual front cameras flanking the upper front speaker. After some digging in the SystemUIGoogle.APK file, the words "Crosshatch" and "Blueline" were found under the Active Edge section. The real images of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL has also surfaced over the web, however, now it is being reported that the Pixel 3 lineup will include the support for wireless charging as well. One example is wireless charging which is no longer present on the Nexus 5X and 6P when older Nexus models had it. This doesn't confirm these features are coming to the Google Pixel 3 phones, but it certainly makes their inclusion more likely.

The Pixel 2 Active Edge can be remapped. The other two are listed with codenames - crosshatch and blueline which are reportedly for Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 respectively.

You might be wondering how the device supports wireless charging when it has a metal back. meraz9000 says what we saw is actually glass and not metal though it still retains the two-tone finish of the previous Pixel phones.
