Pixel 3 To Feature A Notch And All-Glass Construction

Having a glass black could allow Google to add wireless charging to its Pixel 3 lineup, which the company has so far omitted in its flagship Pixel smartphones.

Pixel 3 rumors point to a rear camera configuration that would buck this year's multi-camera trend, with just a single sensor on the back. Meanwhile, sales of Apple's new iPhone models have been known to climb into the double-digit millions during their first weekend of sales alone. Google is also said to be working on a third mid-segment Pixel smartphone, which is codenamed "Bonito".

Google simply doesn't have the reach that rival phone makers have, and it doesn't invest anywhere near as much into marketing and advertising its Pixel phone lineup.

The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor reported there is a feeling around the league that the Lakers have a legitimate chance to sign James. It does make sense for James to sign with the Warriors from the standpoint that he wants to win more rings.

Google is due to launch its Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL handsets later this year and we're now started to see leaks concerning these handsets frequently.

Recently it was revealed that Google's new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL come packing a hidden and not yet activated Pixel Visual Core chip. Sure they feature designs that were already outdated when they were released, but the phones themselves are terrific. The fingerprint sensor is in about the same place as the Pixel 2's, and even the Google logo (which appears to have been spoofed the hide the identity of this test device) is in the same place. Crosshatch is the 3 XL (confirmed by the bootloader screen we saw in the leaked images) while blueline must be the smaller Pixel 3. That includes the notch that so many people seem to be against as well as the sizeable chin - presumably required in order to get those stereo speakers onto the face of the device. Google is expected to skip the dual rear camera bandwagon yet again this year. Hopefully, this means the phone now has its own version of a facial recognition feature, similar to the iPhone X or the Huawei P20 Pro. The phone will not have an edge-to-edge screen or notch. 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 device sports a glass back, which may allude to wireless charging support.

If that sounds familiar, the approach mirrors what Google has achieved with the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones. The phone pictured in these leaks is an early prototype, and production likely hasn't yet begun.
