There is a chin on the front of the phone, too, which would line up with previous rumors, including a leak of what was believed to be screen protectors for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

The removal of the headphone jack and lack of wireless charging on last year's Google Pixel 2 was a huge opportunity that was missed but this year, Google might significantly improve the features set with the release of the Pixel 3.

Earlier this week, some live images of a Google Pixel 3 XL prototype leaked from XDA-Developers Senior Member meraz9000.

The volume rocker keys and power button will placed on the right side, like we saw on the Pixel 2 devices as we;;.

Last year's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones are... nice. Another highlight of Pixel 3 XL will be a glass back design, though it is unclear at this point if the phone will support wireless charging.

However, Google has kept a single-lens camera system in its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones, and opted to use its software rather than an extra lens to create the professional portrait mode effect, where the background appears blurry in contrast to a focused subject. Around front, although the image is a bit blurry, you can see the dual front-facing speakers, dual front-facing cameras, and the notch.

Now, for those of you who are screaming "of course it'll come back", keep in mind that Google has some history of removing existing features in later smartphones. That suggests that we may not see this come to fruition for a while, but also shows that it's something Apple is continuing to think about and possibly work on. The next-generation Pixel phone also has an all-glass back, so it's likely we'll get wireless charging support as well - so far OnePlus is the only company that switched to an all-glass back for no good reason at all. Even if it's true, it brings up so many more questions.

Google Pixel 3 XL will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 processor and there will be a 4GB RAM+128GB storage model. Google is also said to be working on a third mid-segment Pixel smartphone, which is codenamed "Bonito".
