Just a few weeks back we came across the Google Pixel 3 prototype, and now, the CAD renders of the smartphone, along with the Pixel 3 XL have been leaked. These renders offer the clearest look at the upcoming Pixel 3-smartphones from every angle, courtesy of @OnLeaks and MySmartPrice.

To begin with, it doesn’t seem like Google is going for a radical design change. In fact, the Pixel 3-series will look similar to Pixel 2-series, but with a few refinements. On the front, both smartphones will feature a full-screen display with slim bezels on the sides. However, thick bezels are noticeable along the top and the bottom, on both smartphones. Both smartphones will come with stereo speakers, and dual camera modules are also visible, maybe for face recognition?

The Pixel 3 XL, will sport a notch as well, giving a slightly higher screen to body ratio. But Apple used a notch to offer an edge to edge display experience, whereas on the Pixel 3, with the stereo speaker on the chin, the purpose of having the notch is just defeated.

Turn to the back, the design looks similar, with a small glass portion on top, and rest of the panel made with metal. Shutterbugs will be a bit disappointed as the Pixel 3 series will still come with a single rear camera, while others are moving to dual and triple cameras. A fingerprint sensor is also seen at the back, so no fancy in-display fingerprint tech or so will be seen on the Pixel 3. The USB Type-C port is at the bottom, along with the SIM card tray, whereas the right side has the volume rocker and the power button.

Talking about specifications, the Google Pixel 3 is expected to sport a 5.4-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio, whereas the bigger Pixel 3 XL will come with a 6.2-inch notched display with 19:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB storage, whereas the Pixel 3 XL might get 6GB of RAM. Rest of the details are scarce at the moment, but considering the usual October launch of these smartphones, we expect more details to pour in over the coming months.
