Google Pixel 3 XL Shows an All-Glass Back with New Design

11 June 2018

Code buried in the latest Android P developer preview backs up the leaker's claims.

Tipster OnLeaks had previously revealed that the Pixel 3 will feature a 5.3-inch screen, while the Pixel 3 XL will house a bigger 6.2-inch display. In one of the photos featured in the piece, we find a table of Pixel 2 prototypes with some sensitive logomarks censored, presumably to keep prototype securities hidden.

The Pixel 3 series smartphones are expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Soc and feature 4GB of RAM and 128GB of inbuilt storage.

According to XDA Developers forum member meraz9000, who published the first and second round of Pixel 3 XL images, he accidentally soft-bricked the smartphone.

The inclusion of Active Edge technology would perhaps be less of a surprise, considering it was present and correct in the 2017 Pixels. The updated class then led to the newer "isWakeSettingEnabled" method, where Crosshatch and Blueline were found in the list of compatible devices. The Pixel 2 excelled in the camera department and the Pixel 3 series of smartphones are expected to surpass the camera capabilities of the Pixel 2 series of smartphones.

Apart from wireless charging, Google will also bring Active Edge to the 3rd generation Pixel phones. You can also silence incoming calls with the same gesture, which became a surprisingly useful tool over time. 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. Additionally, the leak also confirms that the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL will have "Active Edge" feature, which can be used to trigger functions like opening Google Assistant and other applications.
