Google’s Pixel phones have built a decent fan following in the last couple of years, thanks to their pure Android experience, powerful performance, and great camera. Fans were already expecting the upcoming Google Pixel 3 to sport a display notch. XDA Developers forum member dr.guru has shared leaked pictures of the Google Pixel 3 XL Clearly White color variant. The leak confirms that phone will have a notch, but design is not going to be its biggest selling point.

This is the Google Pixel 3 XL Clearly White model

Google’s weird design choices make its phones look like cheap Android handsets from Chinese vendors. The original Pixel and the second-gen Pixel models had a pretty ordinary design. People hoping to see a gorgeous design with the Pixel 3 are going to be disappointed. Leaked images of the Pixel 3 XL Clearly White model reveal that it will have a display notch much taller and narrower than the iPhone X.

The phone also has a rather thick chin at the bottom. The presence of a deep notch and thick chin ensures that it will not offer a bezel-less experience like iPhone X. It reminds me of the Huawei P20 Lite that costs less than $300. One reason Google could be reluctant to give up the bottom chin is stereo speakers. The leaked Pixel 3 XL Clearly White model appears to have a bottom-firing speaker for audiophiles.
