We've seen leaked images of a Pixel 3 XL prototype in the past, but these new renders - which appear to be based on the various previous leaks - give us our best look yet at the two-member Pixel 3 family.

Only last week was the notch confirmed for the XL device after several phone cases emerged on Chinese e-commerce marketplace AliExpress. "The display is going to be 5.4" OLED panel (very likely) with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The latter one is created to compete directly with the likes of Samsung Galaxy S9 and iPhone X which offers 18.5:9 and 19.5:9 aspect ratio, respectively.

Both the phone are expected to come with Snapdragon 845, 6GB RAM and Android P. Instead, the smartphone can be marketed keeping selfie lovers in mind as both of them are seen sporting dual front-facing cameras.

There is no fresh information available on the specifications of the Pixel 3 and 3 XL smartphones.

However, the notch is not there in the smaller variant of the Google Pixel 3 that also sports dual front cameras. The handset measures 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9mm. Moreover, thanks to the notch, the Pixel 3 XL gets an nearly bezel-less look.

There is a sizable chin on the bottom of the Pixel 3 XL and a forward-facing speaker for good measure.

Now let's move on to Pixel 3 XL, which is the larger of the two Pixels.

With Google borrowing features from HTC's latest flagship, it probably won't come as a surprise to learn that the engineering talent that the firm acquired from HTC earlier this year will be heavily involved in developing the new devices. This shows that Google too has embraced the notched display design like the other smartphone OEMs this year.

Both the inaugural Pixel and the Pixel 2 series were announced on October 4, so you better save the date for the Pixel 3 launch as well. And now this year, we will be seeing Google launching successor to the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, dubbed Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL respectively. Images of the official-looking accessories were posted to Weibo, via SlashLeaks, and show that Google will be the next Android OEM to adopt an iPhone X-style notch.
