Another day, another Pixel leak. It seems Google’s upcoming Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones just can’t stay under the wraps. Over the past few weeks, the duo has leaked countless times. The bigger Pixel 3 XL especially has had practically everything leaked about it, ranging from hands-on photos to contents of the retail box. Now, a bunch of official-looking renders of the two smartphones have surfaced online, showing two of their color variants – black and white.

The color variants have matching wallpapers that come with a big ‘3’ in the background. The renders once again confirm that Pixel 3 XL will come with an awful-looking notch, the biggest on any Android smartphone. The dual front cameras housed in that notch are also visible. As for the regular Pixel 3, it’s shown with a ‘regular 18:9 aspect ratio display and stereo speakers.

If there’s anything about the two smartphones that’s not out in the open, we’ll know on October 9, when the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are officially launched.

Recently, a Twitter user tweeted some screenshots, allegedly taken on the upcoming Google Pixel 3 XL. The screengrabs highlight a new UI for both Google Assistant, as well as Google’s stock Camera app. The new Assistant UI shows the ‘Hi, How can I help?’ bubble relocated slightly, while the positions of Google Lens and keyboard icons have been interchanged.

As far as the Google Camera app is concerned, its new user interface now lists all the modes (Camera, Portrait, Video) right above the shutter button, allowing users to switch between them with simple swipe gestures. This is much better than the hamburger menu that the Camera app on current Pixel smartphones uses for mode selection.
