The photos were posted online by XDA member meraz9000 and they are the first live images of the Pixel 3 XL. Called "Active Edge" on the Google Pixel 2, the feature lets you squeeze the frame of the device to launch Google Assistant and silence alarms, timers, notifications, and incoming calls. Here's what to expect, whether anything revolutionary is coming down the pipe, and if Google fans will be satisfied with the upcoming offering. The Pixel 3 XL will not come with a 3.5mm headset jack either, which is something we saw on the Pixel 2 series.

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

Moreover, it ships with a 3000 mAh battery which in no way can offer 45 days of standby time or last for 30 minutes on 0% charge. Lenovo officially unveiled the Z5 overnight (via The Verge ) and it's not at all what we expected based on teasers.

Google's flagship Pixel devices are said to be manufactured by Foxconn this year, and the smartphones are expected to embrace the notch, at least the Pixel 3 XL will.

The volume rocker keys and power button will placed on the right side, like we saw on the Pixel 2 devices as we;;. If the new Android P beta 2 is anything to go by, it appears that Google may finally be giving its customers what they really want with the new Pixel 3 lineup.

You can wait for the OTA updates to roll out if you have Pixel or Nexus phones - these should be coming pretty shortly. Redheads are finally recognised, while a new superhero emoji can be represented in two genders and five skin tones.

Google Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 will stick with a single rear camera lens.

This revelation also means we may see some second generation custom image processing silicon from Google in the Pixel 3, to assist with image capture and processing behind the scenes. Our own impression is that this might be a dedicated wireless charging accessory that Google plans on launching when it announces its smartphone family later in the year, but knowing the company it is not going to come cheap. There's a chin at the bottom, and between the chin and the notch there are two front facing speakers. The smaller Pixel 2 uses a symmetrical bezel design. The notch looks much taller than what's on the iPhone X, OnePlus 6, or LG G7. Because that's sure what it looks like just happened. 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.

There are also some concerns about the Falcon Heavy rocket, which hasn't been under as much testing as the Falcon 9 rocket. Weather officials said this is from a weak surface front that will be bring west-southwest winds during the launch window.

What do you think, is this a real prototype of the Pixel 3 XL?
