Google is working on an upgraded Pixel smartphone to challenge the iPhone

Leak Google Pixel 3 may get smaller bezels… and a notch

We even get a tip about a future Pixel phone, with Bloomberg saying "Google aims to eventually remove the bezels completely in a future Pixel but is retaining the notch and chin this year to keep stereo speakers on the front of the phone".

Both handsets are expected to go on sale in October 2018 and arrive as the first smartphones to run Google's new Android P operating system.

Google plans to release two new smartphones this year, the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL, according to a report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman.

The Google Pixel 3 XL is reported to include a dual-camera setup on the front, that will sit on the notch.

Phone Designer focused at first on the larger Pixel 3 XL phone, since that's the more desirable model each year. It is worth noting that Google has sold unlocked versions of previous Pixel phones that worked on T-Mobile, though, and it seems likely that it'll do it again with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

The Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3XL will be the next in line of the company's flagship devices. The display will also have a notch at the top. Earlier, Google made a $1.1 billion deal with HTC and one of its smartphone design teams, which consisted of 2000 employees.

Both Android P smartphones are tipped to sport two front-facing cameras, similar to those seen on HTC's U12 Plus.

Shortly after the phone's release, users began complaining of a blue tint when viewed at an angle, which wasn't exclusive to all users and wasn't addressed in a fix by Google. According to this, Pixel 3 XL will come with a notch. The Google GB1 is also touted to come with new display hardware, new sensors and cameras, while the smaller model is said to come with rather traditional hardware. Apple is planning a new low-priced iPhone, an update to the iPhone X size, and a larger phone with an about 6.5-inch screen for this year as well, Bloomberg News has reported.

LG supplied Google with OLED panels for last year's Pixel 2 XL. 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.
