The Google Pixel 3 XL has a notch

That being said, of the two images of the Pixel 3 XL's front only one provides us with further corroboration of a notch and a dual front camera setup.

First seen on the XDA-developers forums, there is no confirmation that this is a real prototype, but everything looks pretty legit.

A word of caution: while this leaked Pixel 3 XL unit seems legitimate, it's still likely just a prototype or engineering sample.

The Google Pixel 3 XL was leaked in a set of images this week that you'll see above and/or below.

However, Google has kept a single-lens camera system in its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones, and opted to use its software rather than an extra lens to create the professional portrait mode effect, where the background appears blurry in contrast to a focused subject.

There appear to be a pair of front-facing cameras, too. Also on the back, a fingerprint scanner.

There's an EE logo at the back of the phone, too. The top portion of the back panel is a little glossier than the rest of it, and the distinctive line separating the top and bottom has also been removed.

What do you think of the Pixel 3 XL? And no, the headphone jack is not back from the grave. The sides harbor the power button, volume buttons, and the sim slot. The codename "crosshatch" is also spotted on the display, lending weight to its legitimacy.

If today's leak is authentic, then Google's almost finished with the Pixel 3 lineup's development; a fact that isn't surprising as only a few months are left until the pair's expected launch schedule. And if this is actually an early prototype of the phone, it's possible the final product could end up looking very different. It's the larger of the two devices, and it's pretty similar to what we saw previous year. You can see the render images below.
