Google's New Pixel 3/3XL To Use iPhone Manufacturer

Google first introduced its line of Pixel smartphones in 2016, and released the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in 2017.

So, if the Google Pixel 3 XL does indeed have a notch, will you pick one up? The smaller Pixel 3 smartphone will sport an older design with wide bezels above and below the screen, while the larger Pixel 3 XL will have narrower bezels up top that copy the iPhone X's notch.

The Pixel 3 XL will have a "nearly edge-to-edge screen" and a chin at the bottom which doesn't come as surprising for two reasons. Hopefully none of these handsets suffer like the diabolical launch of the Pixel 2 range.

Google's Pixel phones may be the best options for those who always want to get the latest OS upgrades, but they undeniably lag far behind Apple and Samsung's handsets in terms of sales and market share. Both devices would keep a single camera in the back, yes, relying on artificial intelligence again to maintain that photographic quality that both Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL received.

This design will be a huge step by Google as the company will finally ditch the typical 16:9 aspect ratio display for its good.

This is disappointing news for anyone hoping that T-Mobile might finally have the Pixel 3 on its shelves this year. A change in design will come with the Pixel 3 XL, though, which will reportedly boast two front-facing camera lenses. However, it's not clear that the company will still stick to single sensor this time or follow the trend and switch to the dual rear camera technology.

Google always knocked the doors of other manufacturers when it comes to manufacturing the Pixel or Nexus devices. This means that if you wanted to buy a Pixel 3 via a carrier, Verizon will be the only carrier of choice. Verizon Wireless, for the third year in a row, will be the exclusive United States carrier partner for the new Pixels, according to the report.

Google has already announced a feature in upcoming Android version that will allow developers to build applications that work around the notch.

Upgrades are also expected on the Android operating system inside the smartphones. The Google Pixel 2 XL was launched in India for a starting price of Rs 73,000 while the Google Pixel 2 was launched from Rs 61,000 onwards.

For the last two years, Google has worked with industry partners, like LG, to develop its Pixel devices.

That both backs up the theory that at least one Pixel 3 model will have a notch and tells us that they might well use OLED screens.
