Photos of what is alleged to be the upcoming flagship smartphone by Google Pixel 3 XL seem to have leaked out on the internet. The expected launch date is still months away, but leaks seem to have gained steam over the past few days. The photos in question were leaked via xdaforums where Senior Member meraz9000 posted two photos of what may be the flagship device from Google in a thread titled Pixel 3 XL First Look… NOTCH . The user goes on to note that it is a prototype of the device in the text on the post with so here s a prototype Pixel 3 XL.. yes notch confirmed .

Inspecting both the photos, the design of the device looks similar to the Google Pixel 2 XL on the back with what appears to be a placeholder for the G symbol, the fingerprint scanner on the back, and the block separation of two materials. What is somewhat surprising is that similar to the Google Pixel 2 XL, the suspected Pixel 3 XL also packs a single camera setup with an LED flash module on the back of the device.

So this means that there is no dual camera setup on the Google Pixel 3-lineup if we are to believe this leak. It is not clear in the photos, but as 9to5Google notes, it is likely that this may be a glass back with a brushed finish and curved edges separating the two materials. It is possible that Google may be bringing wireless charging with the Pixel 3 lineup if the back is real glass.

Moving to the front of the device, the device comes with that notch on the top of the device along with a considerably fat chin at the bottom of the device. It is likely that the device may come with a dual camera setup on the front. The design of this device is in line with the screen protectors that leaked out for the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

The device is powered on in the photograph, and seems to be on the Fastboot Mode . For people who don t know what the Fastboot Mode is, it is a special protocol boot mode used to update your Android device, flash unsigned ROMs, diagnose your smartphone or even unlock the bootloader for rooting your device and flash a custom recovery such as TWRP.

The screen seems to confirm the crossbatch code name for the Google Pixel 3 mode, and states that the device has 4GB RAM and 126GB internal storage. The image also indicates that the device is unlocked and can t seem to boot at the time when the image was taken. This leak comes right after a new codename for the Pixel 3 lineup was spotted in one of the code commits on AOSP.
