‘Pixel Stand’ to be Google’s new smart dock for Pixel 3

Furthermore, my visual impression of that chunky notch was confirmed, as he wrote "the notch is really BIG, probably the biggest I've seen in any phone". They show the handset in the "Clearly White" color variant and seemingly confirm one of the main features revealed in May's leaked screen protector images: Google is following in the footsteps of other Android developers and including a notch on its handset. Pixel 3 XL leaked in full On the back we've still got a single camera - since Google's quite obviously still confident in their HDR single-shot abilities. But with the leaks coming in hard and heavy here at the tail end of July, we must ask: Will Pixel 3 come early this year?

If you were a fan of the black and white (panda) Google Pixel 2 XL from a year ago, it unfortunately doesn't look like Google will be bringing back the design with the Pixel 3 XL.

As with previous releases, you can expect the next Google Pixel to come in a choice of different configurations - with different prices to match. If the Pixel Stand is priced right and does indeed double up as a dock for the phone, it may well act as a middle ground between a phone and a smart display, especially when placed on a desk at home and/or work, hence negating the need to spend on two separate devices.

If we follow Google's schedule, it should be out on 4 October 2018 or so.

We'll surely see additional leaks concerning the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL in the weeks to come. Google is ditching the dual glass/brushed metal design on the back and is opting in for a glass panel from top to bottom. Other information mentioned on the screen shows that this particular model has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
