Despite featuring the best of the best hardware specifications for Android devices, Google only managed to ship 4 million smartphones in 2017. Meanwhile, the Pixel 3 XL will reportedly have a almost edge-to-edge screen with a notch up and a chin on the bottom in order to give the phone front-facing stereo speakers.
According to Bloomberg, the larger Pixel will have a almost edge-to-edge screen, with a thicker bezel at the bottom of the phone and a notch at the top, while the smaller model will look like the Pixel 2 and won't have a notch or edge-to-edge look. Verizon Wireless Inc., for the third year in a row, will be the exclusive US carrier partner for the new Pixels, the people said.
We may not hear from Google officially anytime soon about the upcoming Pixel phones but we know we'll learn about them from different sources. Like the other recently launched smartphones, the Pixel 3 XL will also have the iPhone X-like notch display.More news: Next Real Madrid Manager: Pochettino the early favourite to replace Zidane

At the rear, however, both Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will have upgraded, but single-lens cameras. The report by Bloomberg further adds that Google is in no hurry to join the dual camera bandwagon and will stick to single camera only.
Google has discussed building the phones with iPhone manufacturer Foxconn, Bloomberg reports. The yet-to-be launched Pixel smartphones are said to come with edge-to-edge display and with the new smartphones the company is planning to take on the next generation of iPhones.
Another rumour suggests there may be no notch or bezels at all, from information revealed in Google's Android P mobile operating system.
Like the original Pixel and Pixel 2, Google is likely to use the latest chipset available for the Pixel 3 smartphone as well. The image at the top of this post shows one of Phone Designer's renders comparing his visions of the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, and another one can be seen below.
