Google Pixel 3 XL can be clearly spotted in the below-posted images, so without making any delay let's know more about it. Based on previous leaks, designer Ben Geskin imagined what the end result could look like and shared his mock-ups on Twitter.

It's unusual that a boxed, production model Google Pixel 3 XL has been leaked so far in advance of the expected launch date, which is thought to be 4 October, but it's not beyond the realms of possibility. However, at least in this video, the Pixel 3 XL also ships with USB-C-equipped wired Pixel Buds.

With the Pixel 3 XL just a few months out from release, final production of the device is nearing. However, Google does include a Type-C to 3.5 mm adapter for those who want to use their existing pair of earphones that have 3.5 mm headphone jack. For the most part, the design and specs in the new photos corroborate rumors we've seen previously. There appears to be a light green Power button unlike the orange button on the Pixel 2 XL.


Coming back to the phone, the most visible change is how Google is embracing the notch culture.

The next Pixel 3 XL will indeed have a large notch, which was confirmed earlier in the year by Google.

Sitting on the top is the Pixel 3 XL itself with a white backplate.


One of the photos also shows the specifications - a Snapdragon 845 chipset running on Android 9.0 Pie. Pixel 3 XL will likely have a single rear camera, like we saw on Pixel 2 series as well as a circular rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. There is no idea why Google has brought such a big notch on the phone.

In terms of design, it gets a taller display but there's a rather thick chin at the bottom which houses one if its front-facing stereo speakers.
