Wireless charging, Active Edge reportedly heading to the Google Pixel 3

Google Pixel 3 XL prototype image leaked online

Google Pixel 3 XL prototype image leaked online

Otherwise, you're going to notice a lot of similarities from the Pixel 2, so we know Google won't be making a huge departure in the design department.

On the right side of the device, the photos show that volume and power buttons are positioned similarly to the Google Pixel 2 XL.

Overall, the Google Pixel 3 is shaping up to be an incremental upgrade.

What's on your wishlist for the Google Pixel 3 and Google Pixel 3 XL? This means we are still looking at relatively large top and bottom chins, though they do feature front-facing stereo speakers to make up for it. It will most probably be the Pixel 3 XL, while the Pixel 3 is expected to boast of the Pixel 2-like design from both front and back. While the said leaks are yet to be verified, new proofs hint that the upcoming Pixel 3 will be equipped with at least two new features. These images were later looked at by the website 9to5google who confirmed a similar logo seen on the prototype images of Pixel 2 revealed by Google itself.

The leaked prototype also revealed that the Pixel 3 will come in a variant which will have 4 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage along with the obvious inclusion of the Snapdragon 845 SoC.

XDA Developers then looked at the latest Android P developer preview and noticed that the "WakeMode" class within the SystemUIGoogle APK was modified. It further led to "isWakeSettingEnabled" method, where two device references - Crosshatch and Blueline - were found in the compatible devices list.

Active Edge debuted on the Pixel 2 smartphones and lets you bring up Google Assistant if you squeeze the sides.

According to xda-developers, which talked to the xda senior member meraz9000 who first published the Pixel 3 images, the phone "likely has a glass back", as the case is "definitely not plastic or metal", according to him. The "window" of the phone will have a glossy finish while the rear panel may have a matte finish.
