Google Pixel 3 XL Latest Spy Image Surfaces Online With Taller Notch and Big Chin Bezels
It is just a couple of months from now that the tech company Google will be unveiling their next Pixel smartphone for this year. Many reports surfaced online about the highly anticipated Google Pixel 3 XL. These are coming out more frequently than before.
According to 9to5Google, a MobileSyrup reader just spotted the upcoming Google Pixel 3 XL on a public transit in Toronto. The person who was caught with the device was using the messaging platform WhatsApp.
In the leaked spy shot, only a few details were revealed. This image is unlike the original Pixel which leaked out in a similar fashion. This shows the tallness of the notch and how it affects the software. This indicates the look of the device is apparently identical to the previous leaks. What makes it more interesting is the notch looks to be wider than what the current iPhone X has.
A @MobileSyrup reader spotted this possible Pixel 3 XL photo in the wild on the streetcar in Toronto, Ontario today. Our team thinks the photo is legitimate, especially given the big notch and substantial chin. Do you think this is a photo of the Pixel 3 XL? pic.twitter.com/nPTGHmIVUO

However, the notch is slightly taller and seems to be taking up much space on top of the screen. On the screen, the gesture navigation keys from the Android 9 Pie operating system are clearly seen. Then, the large chin is on the bottom with its front-facing speaker. The bottom bezels of the device are significantly large even if its size is extremely thin.
The status bar is definitely quite odd. As expected from the Android 9 Pie, the time is on the left side. However, the battery icon is strangely on the same side. There is a possibility that an app or some customizations are doing its work to the software and are not just available on other hardware now.
The Pixel 3 XL is in a case, which is worth noticing. This case might be from one of the first-party cases the company will be offering with the device during the launch event. This does look a bit nicer than the usual TPU cases nowadays. Lastly, the device does not look like having a 6.7-inch display unless the person has huge hands.
