If this mornings leaked pictures of the Pixel 3 XL weren't enough for you, it looks like you can get an even better look at the Pixel 3 XL thanks again to XDA-Developers. Apparently, Google is planning to add dual front cameras (at least that's what it looks like) to the Pixel 3 XL.

As ugly as it is to some, the notch has some small benefit for screen real estate, moving notification icons up near the front camera and out of the way. The prototype has a very large display notch housing an earpiece and two front-facing cameras. This is the next Google Pixel XL, also known as the Google Pixel 3 ... XL. It looks like the Pixel 3 XL will have the notched display, which was speculated considering Android P has support for the same. Google Pixel 3 internally bears the codename "Blueline", according to a Droid Life report. Basically, the components for Active Edge (Codenamed “Elmyra”) mention the Pixel 2 and 2 XLs codenames, but they also mention two more: crosshatch and blueline. That said, Google for some reason has still gone with single rear camera and is relying on its software. However, only the Pixel 3 XL has surfaced and these photos are of a prototype. The thirst for Google's own phone series to finally feature wireless charging has swollen to top levels, mostly because these super-techies view the Android hardware standard bearer as repugnant not to stand with Qi or Powermat or any sort of wireless charging at all. If the new Android P beta 2 is anything to go by, it appears that Google may finally be giving its customers what they really want with the new Pixel 3 lineup.

On the back of the device is a regular fingerprint sensor. As per the images posted, on right side, there is the usual set of power button and volume rocker and the bottom of the handset the SIM tray will be and the USB Type-C port are placed at the bottom. This way, the display controller component can be hidden behind the screen itself, rather than beneath it like most phones.

The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will roll out in October, Bloomberg claims, and will be a Verizon exclusive in the US. It allows developers to build apps that work around the cut out. It could make debut in early 2019 with Snapdragon 710 processor.
